Another big screen bucket list movie conquered and one that was at the top of that list. Probably the best Christmas present I could have received. This was the fourth time I’ve seen this and first time in theater, 35mm no less. Also the most I’ve cried while viewing this movie. Mostly tears of joy but for all the emotional beats. Just amazing to witness on the big screen with so much more impact in those scenes I couldn’t stop myself. If there was a perfect movie this is certainly one. Even after viewing only one month ago this movie remains just as powerful. I’m seriously considering going again for the next screening at MBT.
