Review, Reflect, Respond
You need to be fed by other people's creativity
I regularly try to take my mom to the movies. We enjoy this, but I have to make choices that I call "mom-able." I thought this was one. In this tear jerker, only Mia survives a horrible car accident. She is in a coma and has to decide whether to stay or not. One review said it was "manipulative." True that. Mom didn't like the ending - although it revealed her decision, it was over right when she did. I told her that you had to activate your imagination. She really didn't like the abruptness of the ending. It really bothered her. No hugging, kissing, cryingYou guys know how it ends right? I'm not spoiling it for you? (There's a sequel, so you can guess.) Did I like it? I do believe in a good cry once in a while, so if I can get manipulated into it, I'm okay with it. Did I come away wowed? Enlightened? Life changed? No. But it was a good cry.
