I will personally shoot whoever says that movie is crap.
It's simple and beautiful.
For those who haven't seen it, it's a bittersweet story about a single mum and her deaf son, Frankie. The small family keeps moving about, and soon we find out why. There's not much in Frankie's life, except his passion for all things related to the sea. He writes letters every week for his dad, who is presumably in a ship somewhere in the world.
What he doesn't know is that his dad is a character invented by his mother, and the mail is answered by her. But one day, the ship in which his dad is supposed to be arrives to the very town they've just moved to.
It's really sweet.
"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense." Elizabeth Bennet
