I had to use a JImmy V reference for this movie, when he received his ESPY award and gave that once one a lifetime speech, Jim Valvano said the following," everyday you should do 3 things-laugh your ass off-2have at least 1 positive thought and 3-have your emotions moved to tears, well this somewhat encompasses Life Itself, minus the laughing part, it's mine kinda movie, no guns, no murder, it makes you think, chose, consider ponder, wonder, cry and reflect, sad how this type of movie is considered an anomaly, as opposed to the norm, highly recommend
