Seeing Philadelphia as a backdrop in film should no longer be novel, after all Philly has become a real movie town! Still there’s always a sense of fun surrealism when seeing the streets you walk along everyday up on the big screen; so I wanted to see the movie Lebanon, PA for that reason, as I knew the opening scenes took place around Rittenhouse Square.
I also wanted to see it because I like relationship films. Will (Josh Hopkins) a man who’s never kept in touch with his extended family, only 2 hours away, now finds himself being a part of his young, pregnant cousin’s life.
