About Time, About Life and Death

Honey and I watched a little sleeper of a film last night, About Time.  We were both completely charmed, and as devoted movie buffs, can't imagine why it wasn't nominated for Best Original Screenplay.  It's both written and directed by Richard Curtis, who also wrote Four Weddings and a Funeral, and who wrote/directed Love Actually and Notting Hill.  It's witty, sophisticated, and above all it's an inspiring celebration of life.

I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in the interplay among life, death and love.  It's an uplifting life lesson for anyone who is in life, from the joy of creating a family, to mid-life, to end of life.  I don't know of another film that so completely nails the aspiration to live in the moment. That's all I'll say, because I don't want to give the story away.  Enjoy!
