if you are looking for a movie to pour your heart and mind into, i totally and 100% suggest Restless, with mia wasikowska. i wanted to watch some romance-y movies tonight, so i rented One Day and Restless... i had to stop One Day a couple of times, and contemplate how bad it was. so then i played restless and was hooked irresistibly to the plot and characters.
Restless is about a girl who has cancer and a boy who falls irrevocably for her. the remarkable thing is what the characters say, and the undertone of the movie. both characters have a different input on death and what it means to them, how it fits into the scope of life. i also enjoyed how there is no fluff, know what i mean? no silly script, no fruffy costumes (only really remarkable outfits), and no dragging out of things-- only sweet kisses and words, though obviously there are moments of adversity. i feel like it was a good book, like i could read it again and again and get new things out of it... anyways! watch it!
