Simply Beautiful
17 September 2013 | by alyciasalteredegoSee all my reviews

I recently watched NORMAN on my 'On Demand' network. Not knowing a thing about the film other than what was previewed on BrightHouse, I had no idea the impact this movie would have on my life. A beautiful tale of love, hope and over-coming life's strangest and dimmest oppressions. The acting, writing and direction was all perfection. Not to mention Andrew Bird's soundtrack to the film was so lovely. 'Night Sky' is now one of my 'most played songs' on my iPOD. I cried, I laughed and thoroughly enjoyed this film the entire way through. An unpredictable yet moving script that the writers should feel immensely proud of. I've told all of my friends and family about the movie since watching it, and can't wait to purchase it to watch over and over again.
