I looooooved that movie. It was very movie, I was crying so hard at the end too. I also liked it because it made me restart my thinking about how anti-death penalty I am. Oy, that made no sense . . . way too late.
The blurb in my local art theater's flyer gave me no idea just how sad it was going to be. I had no kleenex on me and ended up a soggy mess, finally borrowing my date's handkerchief. And let me tell you, I am not one of those folks who just looks pale and tragic when she cries. We're talking red blotchy face, swollen eyes, runny nose--the works. I'm glad I didn't have a mirror.
So all in all--it was great!

This is a beautiful film. I've only seen it a handful of times because every time I watch it, it has the tendency to make me a bit morose for the rest of the day. It is a movie I like to share with people, though, because it is so powerful. I've watched it with two separate friends and they were both in awe.
Jeff is my favorite character.
