This one was easily one of my favorites. This is one of those underrated romances. It brings together some things that many people face alone, such as death, illness and attending other people’s funerals or fascination with birds. Yet, it also deals with chance. What are the chances of meeting that one person who understands you?
I also must commend Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper, because the characters were very complex from both emotions to outfit choices. The matching hair cuts also did some good. And we cannot forget Gus Van Sant, he really made me as a viewer feel like I was a ghost, just hovering.
It may not be the most timeless love story of the decade, but it certainly reflects on the now.
