Movies are so powerful and have the potential to connect us all in a way that few other group events share. Much like life. we all leave the theaters with different perspectives of the experience we collectively share. To me, this mirrors our experience with grief and loss. Love and loss are universal but the way we experience loss is unique to our own interpretations.
I met Ryan after the movie and he was so kind to share his experience with grief and death. He also was vulnerable enough to share how his favorite movie taught him about the beauty and obligation we all will have to face when its time to let go of a loved one we cherish and want to hold onto forever.
What movie has touched your heart and affected the way you view life, death, and grief? I'd love to know.
