Some are calling it the movie of the year.
What do you think?
I think – creative, imaginative, beautiful, terrific acting and writing. And yes. I believe it will touch your heart.
Think: old Hollywood, lively music, romance and ambition as good things. Never have I seen realism and fantasy so completely in-sync (I hope that’s a word).
One thing I learned from this movie: sad and happy can co-exist. It’s a great movie to start out your year with thoughtful joy.
