Tom Holland is one-hundred percent my favorite actor. I will force all my friends and family to go see his new films. Known by many as Spider-Man, Tom Holland has been switching up his roles and I’ve been here for it. Two movies that he stars in were released the past two weeks and they are honestly my new favorites at the moment. Chaos Walking was one of the two and it is unlike anything he has been in before. If you’re curious about it, it’s about a boy, Todd, who grew up in a new world where there aren’t any women. When a new arrival makes her presence known, Todd soon finds out his whole life was a lie and begins a journey to keep the girl safe. The other movie is Cherry, and that is the focus of my article. Cherry gave Holland a new experience when it comes to acting and challenged what he already knew, and was comfortable with. Holland plays the character Cherry, and is meant to represent a soldier in the U.S. army. Unnamed throughout the film to symbolize all the soldiers and veterans who have gone through similar things. Feeling like he has no purpose, Cherry joins the army and soon realizes that it is a lot harder than it looks. When coming back from deployment, he finds it hard to cope with everything he saw, and experienced while at war. Cherry is loosely based on a true story and I one-hundred percent recommend watching. Even if you aren’t a fan of Tom Holland, this film spreads light onto what soldiers have to deal with during, and after deployment and shows how the ptsd affects some. Holland already has more projects coming up in the future and I can’t wait to see the other characters he gets to bring to life.
