VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE: Alexisjoyvipaccess Reviews The “Family Weekend” NYC Special Screening!

29 Mar
FamilyWeekend

alexisjoyvipaccess

Emily Smith-Dungy has the determination, the competitive streak, and loads of jump-roping trophies on her shelf; but one thing Emily Smith-Dungy (played by actress Olesya Rulin) doesn’t have is the support from her family at her big jump-roping state championship. With the lack of her family’s attendance at her significant competition, it’s as though that was the straw that broke the camel’s back; and Emily Smith-Dungy decides there is only one hope in reuniting her family- taking them hostage and re-educating them to bring them closer together.

“Family Weekend” which comes out to theaters in limited release on March 29, 2013 is truly a movie the whole family will enjoy. “Family Weekend” brings together an all-star cast and crew who graces the big screen with such charm. The movie features the talent of Olesya Rulin (Emily Smith-Dungy), the consummate actress Kristin Chenoweth (Samantha Smith-Dungy), profound actor Matthew Modine (Duncan Dungy), Joey King (Lucinda Smith-Dungy), Eddie Hassell (Jackson Smith-Dungy), Robbie Tucker (Mickey Smith-Dungy), Shirley Jones (GG), Chloe Bridges (Kat), Chase Maser (Chris), and many more. The work of director Benjamin Epps, producers-Adam Saunders (who also starred in the movie as “Rick”) and Chris Aronoff, and writer- Matt K. Turner was terrific and made the movie so realistic and one in which families all over can relate to.

Having covered and attended the “Family Weekend” NYC special screening on March 21, 2013; I can say that I enjoyed the movie from start to finish. Each cast member and crew did a spectacular job and each of their contributions to the film made it the wonderful film it is today. One of the most fantastic elements of the movie is the message of the film. “Family Weekend” helps families realize that the most important thing in life is family and the care, love, and support for one another.

I very much recommend families all over to go and see “Family Weekend” in theaters. It’s a wonderful film with an all-star, excellent cast and crew that families will definitely appreciate! I have no doubt that “Family Weekend” will become another house-hold name.

Check out these VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE pictures I took of the cast on the red carpet of the “Family Weekend” NYC special screening below and take a look at my VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview with cast-members of “Family Weekend” on the red carpet at this link:

 She’s played the musically inclined “Kelsi Nielsen” in the phenomenon Disney Channel Original “High School Musical” trilogy and in her latest project, portrayed the role of “Emily Smith-Dungy” : a determined, competitive jump-roper in the movie “Family Weekend”; but whatever role the multi-talented actress Olesya Rulin takes on, it’s clear that her grace and charm on the big and small screen makes her a fan-favorite! Actress Olesya Rulin’s talent is always a pleasure to watch and it keeps her fans anticipating and wanting a lot more! Olesya Rulin did a magnificent job (but that’s not a surprise!) in her lead role in the terrific and heartfelt movie, “Family Weekend”.

I, Alexisjoyvipaccess chatted with the marvelous Olesya Rulin on the red carpet of the fantastic “Family Weekend” NYC special screening. Olesya Rulin dished about her role in the movie, the amount of training she went through to prepare for this movie, and more! Check out my VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview with the wonderful Olesya Rulin below along with some VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE pictures I took of Olesya Rulin and the “Family Weekend” cast on the red carpet of the event!

**Since the video may be a little difficult to hear, you can also read my VIPAccessEXCLUSIVE interview with the lovely Olesya Rulin below!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You look amazing, absolutely stunning as always! Olesya Rulin: Thank you!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: So can you tell us about your starring role in the movie, “Family Weekend”?

Olesya Rulin: Yeah! I play Emily Dungy and she is a competitive jump-roper, which is a sport; and she’s so intense in her love and passion for jumping and her family doesn’t come to her big state championship; so she decides to take drastic measures, tie them up and teach my parents to be better parents. It’s an intense, dark comedy full of laughter and a lot of heartfelt moments!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Excellent! So do you have a specific favorite scene from the movie?

Olesya Rulin: Ooh! You know what, there was one of the scenes I actually did not like shooting- is one of my favorite scenes in the film! There’s no dialogue, it’s just a close-up of me jump-roping and they pull out and we’re in front of this beautiful frozen lake and I’m on a dock practicing; and it was so cold that day that like the camera guy had a blanket on him, everyone’s in parkas and I’m standing there like half naked in this little jumping suit; but artistically and when it comes to the movie and the photography was beautiful!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: You least expect it! Olesya Rulin: I know right! The entire time I’m like “Can it be over?”

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Before this film, did you need any training with jump-roping or you were pretty good yourself?

Olesya Rulin: No, no- it’s such a competitive, intense sport; I trained for four months with a professional trainer in LA and she got me the physique of a jump-roper and then I trained the duration of the film with the olympic jumping team which is based in Michigan; so I jumped everyday and on my day-off and with the rehearsals with the team, it was intense; I will never jump-rope again! It was intense; but it’s not for me! I was like, “Oh my gosh, I don’t know how they do it!”

Alexisjoyvipaccess: So lastly, if you could bring out one message to all your fans, what message would that be?

Olesya Rulin: Wow! This question is so deep, I’m always like- there’s so many things I would tell you, I guess- thank you so much for supporting me through all of these years! You guys have changed my life and shifted my life in ways that I can’t explain so thank you, thank you. I am enternally grateful! And also that, I guess what I’ve learned from my career is failure is a wonderful thing. It teaches you lessons and it opens doors you never thought would open and kind of embrace it and don’t take it so hard! Be like, “Okay, well that happened- Next!” and move on. It helps me the most!

Alexisjoyvipaccess: Well I couldn’t agree with you any more! And I will definitely keep that in mind whenever something happens so thank you so much for talking with me and I look forward to seeing you on the big screen tonight!

Olesya Rulin: You’re welcome! Thank you! Thank you so much!
