Just watched 'Tuesdays with Morrie' for the first time. And have been moved to tears by this gentle, charming, beautiful and thought-provoking film. I actually remember a few years ago seeing Mitch Albom, the author of the book (Tuesdays with Morrie: An old man, a young man, and the last great lesson) on which this wonderful film is based, on the Oprah Winfery show. He was telling the true story of how this special book came to be written and about how the experience had affected his own life. At the end of the show Oprah announced that her production company was going to be making his book into a film. I was very glad but hoped that the film would live up to my expectations. Now on finally seeing it I can honestly say that it has exceeded them! The entire cast is superb and Jack Lemmon in particular gives an unforgettable performance as Morrie. 'Tuesdays with Morrie' is a profoundly moving, deeply touching, life affirming film. I cannot recommend it highly enough!
