Hi Ruth, hope you're well.
Yes, I saw this film a few months back. Was a fairly tough watch with some strong performances from Kidman and Aaran Eckheart (who is a fantastic actor). I think I may have been doing something while half watching the film because I couldn't really get into it too much. I do remember the bond with the boy though and the comics he made about the parallel universes. Essentially it is a film about loss and seemed to be focused on that soley, it is therefore difficult to watch if you don't have any experience of a smilar kind to draw upon in that there isn't a great else going on in the film (from what I remember!)
Anyway...! Saw 50/50 last night, wonderfully moving film about cancer.
Been a difficult year for a lot of people, myself particularly. Hopefully better things are on the horizon in 2012.
Hope you're well Ruth.
