There's something bittersweet about seeing a child excitedly open up the "newest" Harry Potter book after spending two hours with a book that nobody's heard of but one man reveres so deeply. That being said, you can't help but love the child who's reading that book, nor can you fault publishers or authors for the love that child shares with that book. We've all experienced it - a book, a song, painting, play, film that we connect with so deeply that it becomes an extension of who we are. We look at that book on our shelf and we think not only of plot but of how sad we are that the book ever ended and how happy we are that we can revisit those deepest friendships we've made at any time.
The film also taps into the idea of man not being a product of his era but the era being a product of that man. The film encourages us to become co-creators rather than consumers. This ode to storytelling and storytellers hits a deeply personal chord.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
