when i saw this on itunes i didnt expect much, but i got it anyway because my fave actress/person nicole kidman was in it. but WOW was i suprised. definetly one of my favorite movies (moulin rouge being my #1) ((that also stars nicole kidman)). my life was amazing. both michael keaton and nicole shined in it. great story.
In my top 10!
I don't recall how or when I first saw this movie, but it has been in my top 10 ever since. Michael does an outstanding job - - and it shows the importance of bringing closure to past events in order to move on peacefully. Thanks for putting this on here!!
I'll never forget seeing this movie in the theater for the first time not really knowing exactly what it was about, only that Micheal Keaton was in it and I'm a big fan. But just 2 weeks earlier my grandfather died of cancer. This movie was gut-wrenching to watch to the point I left the theater sobbing. This is one of those rare movies where you see a man cut down in the prime of his life, but has the courage to face it and then use the time he has left to leave a life-long legacy for his unborn child whom he'll really never know. The acting is superb and the story is simple but amazing to witness on the screen as you see the gradual decline in health. The movie truely carries you with him. It's a classic and truely a must-have and should be shared. It's a gift...
