I loved it.
It starts slow. Almost deadly slow.
I was thinking, am I really going to sit through two hours of this?
I was thinking how could so many people whose opinion I really respect like this so much?
Hang in there. You’ll find out.
This movie takes a while to find it’s heart, but once it does, there is no stopping it.
I cried, and cried, and cried.
It tugs the heartstrings unrelentingly.
And I cried because I want what this movie wants – for people to stop judging people for who they love. For people to just care about each other. For people to stop hurting each other for such stupid reasons.
And I cried for all the people who had to survive such pain and heartache just because society is so afraid of the “other”; and I cried all the people who didn’t survive.
I’m still crying.
The cast is amazing – first because of the talent they pulled in for this movie – and second because these actors are as great as you would expect them to be. Nobody is phoning it in.
I loved the tributes to old musicals.
Watching this movie about wore me out; and it was absolutely worth it.
