good god. .you hear me?!?! GOOD.GOD.
i have never cried so hard and so often in a movie, as i did in this one. and honestly, it wasn't even that great of a movie. but dammit. i was, and still am, bawling. i cannot stop crying. it was just so sad.
my only complaint about this movie was that we didn't get to know really anything about the people who died before they died. the movie starts off with the end of the game before they board the plane that crashes. we get about 5 minutes of the team and coaches before we lose them all forever. boyfriend insists that i enjoy torturing myself and he doesn't understand how i could want to be more involved in a story that is already as heartwrenching as it is. but i guess the way i see it is- this movie was made because of this huge loss. and while it is about moving on after an incredible tragedy.... and how not only individuals must move past this, but a whole entire town.... i guess i just want to know WHO they're moving on from. i want to be more emotionally involved. i want to care about the people who died. and i can't care about them when i'm not given anything at all to know about them. and i think that sucks. i want to know the girl and her fiance's relationship before he dies. i want to know what kind of coach the coach was. i want to know and like these boys before they are killed.
maybe boyfriend's right? no, he's not. it's not that i enjoy torturing myself. it's just that i enjoy learning all about someone when i'm supposed to care that they're gone. know what i mean? you want me to care that this town lost 75 people? show me 75 people to care about. teach me about them. let me love them too. and then yeah...... i'll be crying even harder. but dammit, i might feel better too. i know that doesn't make any sense, but it does in my head.
