I am now trying to find words to describe this movie for an hour. I couldn't.
You've seen it, or you haven't. It's monumental and outrageously good.
The cast is brilliant. The jokes lovely. The story and the idea behind the movie is beautiful. Especially when you've worked/lived with handicapped people. The music is such a perfect choice, it is unbelievable.
I hope this movie makes a plenty of people think about how good their life is and how bad it could have been.
Bottom line: Oscar-worthy. Period.
