I have spoken about this movie before on my blog… But I have yet to induct it in as an All Time Favorite, which it is. If you have not seen it you MUST run right out and rent it. Honestly, I get teary eyes just thinking about it, not because it is sad but because of the beauty and truth that you will relate to on so many levels.

And then there is the soundtrack… The fucking amazing soundtrack is mostly made up of songs by the AMAZING Alexi Murdoch,  a few taken from his Limited Edition album that has yet to have an official release (still waiting). After all of the years his music that I have heard 5,000 times still bring tears to my eyes,still makes me feel like I am sitting at the Hollywood Bowl and we are the only people there and he is singing directly to me. His songs calm my soul and remind me of the good things in life.

This movie and the songs that accompany it seem as if they were made for one another, it is a beautiful work of art that I will cherish forever.

    Haven’t heard of this movie Rachel, and I have no idea how I missed it because I’m quite fond of John Kransinksi. Just ordered off ebay… thanks for the heads up!

    Yay! Can’t wait for you to see it.

    Totally agree. I’ve gotta buy the DVD and album! Right up there as a favorite.

    What a quirky little charmer this movie is – loved it. Favourite part was the stroller! What a pair of nutters those ‘parents’ were! Cracked me up.

    Wonderful script too, and a wonderful soundtrack, as you mentioned. Thanks again for bringing it to my attention!
