Alright, my Brotha

This evening was spent at Cedar Lee Theater, where we viewed the 81 minute long film: The Squid and the Whale. Expectations were fairly low since it had been quite some time since we were impressed by anything seen in recent months. However, this movie was just what we needed.

It was refreshing to see a film that not only made you laugh, but made you feel something -- anymore, truly caring about the fictional characters is quite rare. Plus, we could relate to the characters, both of us growing up in the 80's -- Jose especially relating to the spastic little boy with a foul mouth, Frank! Although, thankfully neither of our parents are separated.

Definitely check it out. . .

Why am I not surprised that Jose related to the spastic little boy with a foul mouth? Ah, those were the days. Oh wait, I'm not sure that much has changed (well, maybe minus the bad language). I'm sure that movie won't come out abroad for a year or so. We're so behind!
