    It really is a great, optimistic movie. Makes one think of the impact one has on other people's lives, which is something everyone should be reminded of every once in a while. 5 years 9 months ago

    Instant favourite, could write a whole essay on why it is but the short and simple truth is that it's fantastic and you will love it.

    Read through the comments and you'll see a fair amount of "life changing" in various forms; there's a reason.
