There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the '60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.

If you've traveled to Hawaii, have read or experienced anything about the culture, you will appreciate this movie. I especially liked how they expressed the meaning of 'Aloha'- peace and mercy, through the characters and their relationships,and the way they used Emmas character to showcase the nuances of the Hawaiian people and their beliefs. There were some plot holes, but they were, for me, easy to overlook because the relationships and the Hawaiian scenery and culture were the central themes of the movie. Its not an 'in-your-face' type of movie, its very subtle and you have to watch and listen softly; you'll find your internal motor down-shifting a few gears before the movie ends, much like Hawaii itself. If you enjoyed Elizabethtown, you'll like this movie.
