I finally saw A Better Life. I'm sure glad I watched it at home, cause I pretty much cried through the whole thing. Tug at my heart strings. I still wonder what happened to the teenage boy I tutored in DC. He left school to work and support his family. I still think about the nice man I saw get arrested one morning at Food City in Phoenix. What happened to his family?
Ah, what to do....
1) Garden State - not because of the movie, but an emotional breakdown due to surrounding circumstances that had been building for days. One can only be even-keeled in a crisis for so long.
2) The Kite Runner - I had read the book, knew everything that was going to happen, sobbed like a baby through the whole movie. Thankfully watched it alone in my grandma's basement.
3) The Road - Once again, had read the book. Saw it over Thanksgiving break with a guy I had just started dating. Cried in every scene with the man and the boy. I'm sure my date thought I was a total weirdo.
