Tyler (Robert Pattinson) orders a Tikka Masala in the restaurant. This is most likely a reference to him being a British actor, and that the Tikka Masala was invented for the British market, and is virtually spice free. See more »

Life Lessons are the Hardest to Learn
Have you ever noticed how some people can teach you life lessons about who you are what you hold dear? Have you ever passed a stranger and wondered what tragedy they've endured in their lifetime? Have you ever asked why me...or better yet, why NOT me?
Life lessons are often the hardest to learn and you never know who's going to be the instructor. Sometimes it's an actual teacher who fulfills that role. Sometimes it's a friend. Sometimes it's a parent. And while you could argue that we really already know deep down the things these instructors reveal to us, it stands to reason that a reminder now and again about who we are and what we hold dear can and should serve as wake up call or guiding light as we navigate our lives.
And this film, well, I think it reinforces that the inner revelations we oftentimes try to ignore, deny, suppress, and trivialize should be recognized. And valued.
Thoughtful and touching, the film resonates after the lights come up. It's been a long time since a film followed me home.
Kudos to the writers and the cast. Well done all around.
