If you’re looking for a movie that touches on the meaning of life and friendships, then Peter Hutchings latest film, Then Came You, is the movie to see. This coming-of-age story deals with teenage friendship with life’s stakes at its highest. Boasting a fantastic cast that includes Asa Butterfield, Nina Dobrev, Tyler Hoechlin, Ken Jeong, Maisie Williams and more. I spoke to Peter about the film and the theme of the movie, life.


Heading into my conversation with Peter, I didn’t anticipate it to get this deep and philosophical, but it’s cool that it did. I definitely related to Butterfield’s character Calvin, which made the movie more personal to me. During out discussion you could hear Peter put a lot of thought into the answers to the questions I posed to him. I appreciated that.

It was interesting to hear him talk about wanting families to see this film and have conversations about it. That makes lots of sense actually, dealing with the theme of life and death is a very relevant topic, yet, often times it’s avoided due to being uncomfortable in discussing.

This film can make you reflect on your own life, at least it did for me. Think about our mortality and the way we live our individual lives. The film centers around the message about what death means to different people and how they live their lives in conjunction to it.

Peter’s outside interests include his commitment to the Anthropedia Foundation. A non-profit that focuses on well-being. I found that to be kinda fitting with the some of the messages in this movie.

I’m glad I had the chance to see the movie and speak to Peter about it. It made me more conscious and aware of how I’m living my life and how I want to live it. I think similar perspectives can be attained for others who watch it, so check it out.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
