Lars and the Real Girl. SAD SAD SAD movie.
Basically, I'm going through a period of mourning here. Accepting what has happened to me, fully accepting it. That it happened and that it has had its unfortunate side effects. I am mourning the loss of my childhood and mourning the loss of my daddy. Mourning the loss of something I'll never be able to get back.
And that's what our protagonist was doing in this movie. What drew the tears like a waterfall out of me was the reaction of the community around him. So freaking emotional, powerful. If only the communities around us could do the same. If only they knew how. I am not bitter to not have that kind of support. I am just saddened by it.
If you haven't seen it, be prepared to cry if you do. It's an interesting take on something very similar to what we're going through.
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground, carry on. ~Fun.
