As an "old" man, you wouldn't think this would be the kind of movie that I would like. That I would regard it as a teen-age only movie.
I appreciated (no, loved) this movie on many levels. And I have watched it several times, and recommended it to other family members and friends.
Because I remember being young and in love, with strong emotions.
Because I have experienced deaths of those close to me, and I can taste, feel and intimately know how it feels.
Because, as you get older, you think about the loss of those close to you.
Because, as learn wisdom, you learn to enjoy the time with those you love, and look backward on those times with joy.
Because the starring actress was so very excellent in her role. And the parents of both main characters were believable..
So, I appreciated this movie so much, I would give it more stars if I could.
Trust me, just watch it; if possible with someone you love.
