Just when you begin to doubt everything around you as times are such when even a true act of humanity raises suspicion of vested interests there comes something like this to reaffirm your faith.
More than all this what i personally loved about the movie was that lovely relationship shared by all in the family. The most wanted space that all of us desire in any relationship be it that of a mother and child to that of a newly formed one, was the warmest part of the movie.
Further it was so much soothing to notice all the admiration of a husband who was so sure of his wife and had no qualms about her smartness. Don't miss those looks...amusement, adulation, adoration, trust, pride...that look of the man in her life conveys all at one go...
Then again when the lady delivered without bothering about credits given to her as she inspires her new member of the family to his best performance in the game is an eye opener to all those who want to be showered with praise for their simplest of acts of generosity or charity. Learn something from this all ye who know best only to bang your own drum.
Wonder why the critics have not given 'Everybody's Fine' much acclaim when i found it a very touching movie. But then since it is my choice and choice is a personal thing i have not much to complain.
Why can't kids explain before their parents on their own accidently stumble upon their disappointing state of affairs? Maybe that freeway between the parent and the child is choked with expectations and exasperations. Why can't both trust each other?
From the acclaimed writer Nick Hornby who also wrote ' About a Boy ' and others there is yet another one that forced me once again to go down memory lane.
'An Education ' is the story about a young and bright school girl Jenny. Now that Jenny could easily be me is what makes the movie so endearing.
That 1960's Britain English delighted me so much that i was trying to speak with a stiff upper lip when i talked to my friend over the phone. She wouldn't have guessed why i was sounding so funny as she was too preoccupied with her own agenda.
Tell you what, first see the movie and then later glance at the reviews or ratings this way you are saved of the forced prejudice that could ruin your chances of a rendezvous with this "university called life".
Signing off for the time being with this beautiful number from another wonderful movie 'Adam'.Originally i suppose the song is by another band called 'The Weepies'.
