so moving
29 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I think the first time I watched this I had never been heartbroken.. but watching it now this was so moving. David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston - WOW WOW WOW! Just amazing performances and connection. I actually cried. Dancer in the Dark is the last film I cried over. They both deserve an EMMY for these performances alone. And of course so well written. And funny bits too! My favourite line from Joey at the end: "Maybe she killed him." Perfect timing! Watching these again, 20 years older, I am surprised at how good it is. And how things mean different things to me now than when I was in my teens/early twenties. It is good for all ages!
