One of the dogs rescued by Charlize Theron in this film (the one she re-homed and later took back) also played Verdell in As Good As It Gets (1997). See more »
In the beginning of the film Nelson is in a towel talking on the phone. In the matter of one line Nelson becomes fully dress. There is not enough time for him to button the shirt and put on his belt. See more »

This is a wonderful movie because it is just real. Real people have things they are dealing with and are not always making their best choices--Nelson decides to come back a couple times. I really enjoy the effort of Sara to shine a light so Nelson can see simple pleasures in life, pleasures looked over when someone is so focused on getting an account and working long hours.
I love this movie, own it, and have watched it several times. I find it rather coincidental that my refusal to watch, turning off the movie right before the end (on the morning of December 1) to remember the beauty of the movie--is the same action that Sara takes to remember the change in Nelson and the beauty of their loving relationship, right before the end.
Sweet November is a fabulous movie. I hope the film reminds you to slow down and take a look at the important things in your life when you view it again.
