Hi MMMMMM and Ayesha....
OK, so far, I have not yet called up Miz Suzie in Orlando and asked her to spill the beans re. the ending. In fact, after this post, I called a friend here and checked out her availability re. seeing said film.
However, it might be sometime mid week, for yours truly is down on her back like a flat pancake, only getting up to feed her best friend, Tiger (see his pic at The Rose's Banner exchange page!) and to change channels on the cable, or to check on what's been going on the Board....
Shame on me! However, since by the Publicant's most recent edict re. only 5 minutes of self-flagellation is allowed on this Board, I shall simply revert to my pancake state....
Dear Miss Vita,
: : I know you are strong and can take any ending, no matter what may lay ahead! You must, must, must, do your self a favor, and not find out how it ends. This way you will really enjoy!!!! Afterall, it is only film. As you can see Mr. Gibson is still alive, raising his seven children and living a fairly happy existence, as least as far as I can gather.
: : It would be a crying shame to see it on the little screen. There are so many utterly sweeping moments to enjoy, including the scenery on the big screen. It will not have the same impact on the tely (tv)! Also, for your information, the young fellow that plays his son, it really quite good. He is also an Aussie, but you would never know it, as his accent is no where to be found!
: : We do go to films to experience every emotion, this helps us to go deeper and deeper as human beings. When we view human suffering is raises our own sense of compassion. Don'tcha think???????
: : Blessings on your day,
: : Ayesha
: Ayesha is right, Vita. MMMMarcia says do yourself a favor & see it on the big screen. There are many scenes that are quite nice, visually, and the effects deserve a big-screen viewing. And while it is very dramatic & I did find cause to sniffle here & there, it is not a depressing film, in the sense that you are witnessing humanity rise above itself for a cause. Trust MMMM...head on out and watch it today. I think I've a sense of what you like, and I suspect you will like this movie. Let me know if I'm right or wrong.
