Sadly, most movies do not have the capability of drawing me in like that and getting me totally lost in an storyline deep and strong enough for emotion. They don't make 'em like that. It's a pity and a shame.
Every once in awhile a gem comes along--something powerful and original and moving and suprising and deep and stirring of the very chords of your heart in a way you could never have expected.
That movie--one of the few--is Warrior.
The real plot could just as well be curling though (okay, not really)--it's the character depth that was incredible moving. Two men, estranged from each other and the ideal of how their lives should be--coming back to the thing they were raised during a painful childhood to know best--fighting in the ring.
Have you seen it? If not, you should. Amen. What's a movie that's powerfully emotional for you?
