I was riveted, absorbed, thinking of my family, but not depressed. I wish my dad had lived into old age and hadn't died so early. I thought the movie was magical in exploring how personal dreams and thoughts can keep us alive even when our regular lives are unsatisfying, like Dad's (Jack Lemmon's) fantasy life on the farm. I found myself understanding that I had done that too
A fantastic movie. Every person who is a member of a family will get something from this movie.
