This is the movie that inspired my latest book, "I Will Survive: The Story of Laurie Anderson and the Farewell to Life". The movie is a delight. I don't think I have ever seen a movie more powerful and believable than this one. Everything you see in the movie is a true to life story, just like the movie. The acting is wonderful, and most of the scenes are in the past. The viewer is able to identify with the protagonist and the part he is supposed to play. I do not believe this movie will be successful, but I do believe that it will be a great success, and will make a huge impact on others. People will be inspired by this movie. People will feel good about the world. The movie is an essential movie for any and all people to watch. The message in the movie is to never give up. To always have hope and to never give up. This is a must-see movie. It has the power to keep people's spirits strong.

Greetings again from the darkness. Reminds me of a Mr. Vaughn in a straight jacket, chewing on a cigarette. A large portion of the movie is set in the past, when Kim Basinger's character was a teenager. However, the future is a not as bleak as depicted in the movie, because Basinger's character turns 20 just a week before the movie starts. In her younger days, Kim Basinger still got along with her friends, and, on a few occasions, met up with her boyfriend, before his disappearance. However, when the two fell out, Kim took a more serious look at her life and decided to leave New York for better opportunities. The story is told from the perspective of Kim's brother, and is told entirely through the eyes of Kim's best friend, Dawn. Dawn and Kim go back to their hometown of Newtown, Connecticut, and to her son's high school. They are soon introduced to her boyfriend, Kevin, played by Josh Hutcherson. Kevin is a high school senior and a student at a private college in the area. Kim is convinced that he is the romantic type and falls in love with him. However, Kevin doesn't seem like the type of guy she could ever fall in love with. There is also the issue of Kevin's father, who has been making strange demands of Kim. When they go to visit his parents, Kim learns that Kevin's father has been left a broken heart by his wife. Kim's mother insists that Kevin stay in Newtown and work on his career, something that Kevin finds out during a field trip. Kim feels that her brother is not ready to leave New York and goes to the point of making him leave the country with his mother's blessing. Kevin, however, refuses to leave his mother and eventually runs away from the home he has always been in. Kim is left to cope with the loss of Kevin, her brother and her boyfriend, when she returns home to find that his apartment is being demolished. Her mother reveals that she will not accept Kevin's return and forces her son to stay in Newtown. Kim returns to her friend's apartment and asks Dawn to go with her. However, the two are late for her to get home and meet her boyfriend. As the two wait for their friends, Kim finds a note that Kevin had left for her. This is the moment that she decides to return to the friend's apartment. In New York, Kevin's brother tries to help Kim get back to her boyfriend's house, where she keeps all of her belongings. However, Kevin manages to reach his friend's apartment and they both go to his mother's. Kevin's mother has been taking care of him and is soon forced to let him go. The movie ends with Kim arriving at Kevin's apartment, where they both hug. Kevin gives Kim a gift, a necklace, which he had planned to give to Dawn, but couldn't find her. Kim is then forced to admit that she was the one who kept Kevin from leaving her. All of the above is in the time frame of 15 years. It is very hard to predict when the movie will be over and it is a movie that shows how hard it can be for a woman to break out of the cycle of sex and sex and become independent. We are shown that this is a beautiful and happy life and that it is possible. However, the movie does have a few flaws. It is a bit too long, and the ending is a bit too abrupt and somewhat pathetic. However, if you are the type of person who likes movies like this, then this is the movie for you. It is a movie that has a positive message, that is, "Even when life has you down, it never gives up on you." 8/10

By now, I think most people have heard of "The Farewell", the film adaptation of Oscar Wilde's play "The Importance of Being Earnest". In the film, Woody Allen has succeeded in making the play a "reality" and as such, it becomes a film worthy of viewing, or not. If you are familiar with the play, and know what the film is supposed to be like, then you can appreciate this film more than if you are not. To those who haven't seen it, I'd say to watch it, as it's well worth the watch. It's fun, and no doubt very insightful and hopefully enlightening. What do you think? You can find the reviews on the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

I liked this movie. It was funny and not the usual cheesy Hollywood movie. I would recommend this to anyone who loves "True Hollywood." I would love to see more movies like this.
