Over the past few months, I’ve gotten in a routine of falling asleep nearly every night while streaming a show and I have no shame. I decided it would be a nice ‘lil change of pace to pick a night and set up a cute space for a watch party. Since I’m living with my mom and sister right now, I’m getting them in on the fun. I’ll be grabbing our favorite snacks, popcorn, sandwich cookies, and chocolate-covered pretzels—a curbside pickup of course. Then I’ll surprise them by setting up a comfy spot in our living room! I’m talking lots of throw pillows and fuzzy blankets to make this as cozy as possible. Bonus: I’m even going to add string lights, because nothing sets the movie mood like string lights, right? Right.
Now, you’re probably wondering what movie will be featured at our viewing party. Well, you’re in for a treat because we’ll be streaming HBO Max’s latest flick, Unpregnant. I am seriously obsessed with Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira, so lucky for me, they’re the stars in this film! It tells the story of a high-school student who finds out she’s pregnant and reaches out to her ex-best friend for help. They go on a 1,000-mile road trip of a lifetime, in this coming of age tale. Excited to watch? Same! Here’s how other Her Campus HQ members are planning to watch the movie on September 10th:
“I’ll be cozied up with my bag of popcorn and a glass of wine ready to watch this flick. Also, Haley Lu Richardson is a fab actress so I can’t wait to see her take on this role!”
Maddie Hiatt, Social Media Editor
“This is a perfect movie for my next solo Friday night. It’s the absolute best feeling crawling into bed after a long week, comfy sweats on and a pint of ice cream in hand. Our two dogs, Yeti and Bagheera, and our cat, Paisley, love a movie night, so they’ll surely be tuning in, too.”
Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, Co-founder, CEO & Editor-in-Chief
“I’m all about ~girls’ nights in~ lately, so I’m looking forward to watching this virtually with my BFFs! We host watch parties where we all press “play” at the same time and live-text our reactions in our group chat throughout, so I’m looking forward to doing the same with this movie.”
Lara von Linsowe-Wilson, Influencer Marketing & Community Manager
“Count me in for anything that takes the normalization of abortion as healthcare – or self-care – a step in the right direction. With a fuzzy blanket in my lap, my cat curled at my side, and a hard cider in my hand, movie night really couldn’t get any better.”
Sammi Burke, Associate Lifestyle Editor
“I love road trip movies and Barbie Ferreira is one of my favorite new actresses so I’m really excited about this movie. My best friends and I all live in different states, so we’ll be doing a virtual watch party from our couches!”
Maggie Scenna, New Business Marketing Manager
