Beautiful example of marriage vows
Yes, this is a tear jerker, but it is also the way couples should view their marriage commitment.
A wonderful film depicting a glimpse into the world of Alzheimer's. And it doesn't only show the terrible side. The firm maintains the dignity of all the characters in a way you don't often find in this "throw away" society. What do I mean by that? There was no talk about having a poorer quality of life resulting from the Alzheimer's--the main character was still a much-loved member of the family, all the way down to her grandchildren.
I think the political musings on the one brother's job could have been avoided and not taken away anything from them movie. I don't think it was the proper background for such disagreements.
I really enjoyed this film and plan in seeing it again when it plays locals. I hope many more people take my suggestion.
