Let the record show that:
1. I generally don’t stumble on many k-movies that truly resonate with me, thanks to their shorter running times, and also quite possibly, thanks to my drama-attuned sensibilities. What can I say? I don’t like to feel rushed when connecting with characters on my screen. 😉
2. This particularly holds true for movies that run like highlight reels, because I find it particularly hard to connect with a highlight reel.
3. I don’t seek out tearjerkers and if I know in advance a movie is going to make me cry, I approach with deep caution, if I approach at all.
Despite all of this, though, I love – like, really, unreservedly love – My Brilliant Life.
Highlight reel, tears and all, this movie moved me deeply, and I would watch this again in a heartbeat.
