Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. 

If they put me in charge of the Oscars... I just saw the winner in all categories.  Emotions ranged from profound sadness to joy and there was laughter.  The crowd in the theater broke into applause when the credits rolled.  Nine year old Thomas Horn in his first movie gave a performance that you will never forget.  It grips from moment one and you get to breathe again after you walk out of the theater.

See the preview here.

I don't want to "tell you the story", but for any of you that think this movie is at all about 9-11 it truly is not.  The story is more about the emotional journey of healing and triumph where you thought one might not exist.  I had read earlier that it is not for children and I agree that about 8 or 9 might be perhaps the age that I would have wanted my own children to be had they seen it when they were still that young.  But if you have older children by all means take them to see it. 

It's a story of family and relationships.  And if you ready my blog you know that I love family and and treasure my relationships.  There are happy moments, there are funny moments.  Take some tissues, because no matter WHO you are there will be a few tears.  And turn off your car radio on the ride home and turn off your phone and just reflect for a while.  I think it might be one of those movies that I have to see again.  You know just in case I missed something.
