Have you seen this movie? B rented it last year one cold weekend, and, suffice it to say, I wasn't all that interested in it. I hadn't heard of it, and I was hoping he would bring home The Other Bolyn Girl which I had been dying to see. He convinced me to watch it, and thank goodness he did. It's one of those movies that just gets into your heart and settles right in. I was SOBBING at the end. Not a cute girly "oh it's so cute" cry.......oh no, this was a gasping for breath, break your heart, sobbing!! I can't tell you what I said at the end (it'll ruin the movie for you) but B still says it outloud sometimes and always starts laughing! He rented it again on Valentine's weekend, and, though I didn't expect it to affect me as much because I already know what happens, there I was on the couch again with heart wrenching sobs! It is such a touching, honest, raw movie that is in no way overdone. If you've seen it, let me know what you thought. If you haven't, rent it soon. I promise, it is worth the 1 1/2 hr investment!
PS- It did win an Oscar for best song- Falling Slowly. I tried to upload the video clip from youtube and couldn't, so head on over there if you want to hear/remember which song it is. Just lovely!
