Pulls at the heart

This is an amazing film. Why you tell people it's a movie about a man who drives a lawnmower to see his brother they look at you like you're crazy. Watching it will take you on a journey straight to the heart. Absolutely fantastic movie. Now iTunes and Disney please let me buy it instead of just being available for rent!
