Saw the movie yesterday with my dissertater group. Let me just say, we left the theater kind of quietly. Forlorn, morose, unfulfilled... not words that describe the movie, but words that describe how it made me feel. Not even the sadness that you can express with tears (and I'm a cry baby) but the kind that makes you feel empty and achy inside.
Now, after that cheerful summary, I suggest you go see it for yourself.
