Storyline

When a successful New York City advertising executive suffers a great tragedy, he retreats from life. While his concerned friends try desperately to reconnect with him, he seeks answers from the universe by writing letters to Love, Time, and Death. But it's not until his notes bring unexpected personal responses that he begins to understand how these constants interlock in a life fully lived, and how even the deepest loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty. Written by Warner Bros

Quotes

Raffi: Your children don't have to come from you. They go through you. So, I wouldn't consider the battle with time over just yet.
Claire: I thought time wasn't linear. I thought it was an illusion.
Raffi: Maybe that was just bullshit, Claire. Maybe that was just acting.

Critics need to get a life
26 August 2017 | by jasonperronesrSee all my reviews

Negative reviews kept me out of the theater. Thankfully my mom talked me into watching this. What a beautiful, heartbreaking, well written nearly perfect movie. And the soundtrack is gorgeous and rips your heart out. There is nothing negative to be said. The performances are splendid across the board.
