My JULIE SAYS SO Movie Segment on “Today with Kandace”

I covered a new movie on Today with Kandace that the book clubs have been RAVING about! It’s called Me Before You and it features two ridiculously gorgeous people (Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin) who fall in love and then will probably break out hearts. I also talked about a new Quentin Tarantino flick that’s available on DVD and an animated kids’ classic that you might have forgotten about.
