1. I needed, at the end, to see the new babies!! (Big oversight to be at the funeral, have to zoom to the hospital and
not have the new life coming in, after losing the big loving life that just left!)
2. I cried, drippingly, when elder son so lovingly and caressingly, shaved his mother's head. That seemed to be the
essential message of the whole movie - show care through whatever happens.
3. I laughed out loud when elder son and mom escaped from hospital before her "Last Meal" to an ice cream shop!
4. I felt shared happiness and delight the at "wedding" ceremony, and how they gave each other their betrothal rings.
5. I felt joy when the dad finally grew up at the end; he was glad, too.
I've avoided John Krazinski (sp) only seeing the "Jack Ryan" ads, which are not of interest, but am so glad to have bothered to look at what else he may have done. Perhaps he is a force for humanitarianism, caring, and compassion in stories that reflect more or less real situations, and how we can actually get through them without despair.
