For all of us who miss Paul Monette's writing, one film is not enough--but if you do miss him, this is the right film for you!
18 May 2006 | by JaneL_JohSee all my reviews

People we lose can't come back to remind us to keep fighting. With this film in my library, I feel as though I know exactly what Paul might have said about the obstacles I face in my life today...It's a window into that wonderful mind of his that just didn't accept the limitations that encroach on our lives and threaten to keep us in the dark. In this film, Paul Monette shows you a part of his life that usually very private--It's wonderful to see him in his own home, talking with people he loved. For all of us who miss Paul Monette's writing, one film is not enough--but if you do miss him, this is the right film for you. Buy this film. You won't regret it.
