Evening


So, Hopsy,I finally caved and watched the movie Evening tonight. Let me just say...it was EXTREMELY.PROFOUNDLY.INCREDIBLY.HARD for me to watch. All of you out there who have mothers who are living...please just hug them so tight the next time you see them. And if you had a relationship with a boy that you just can't believe ended...friend him on Facebook or whatever.
Great movie...great message...sad that Natasha Richardson is in it and is now gone...
But mostly just sad because it spoke so loudly of a mother/daughter bond that is so special and everlasting and one that I am praying desperately that I will have with my own daughter. I was lucky enough to have it with my mother, despite not being her "biological" daughter. I can honestly say that I haven't been this moved by a movie since I can remember.
...and it's not the three glasses of wine I've consumed talking, either.

I am SO glad you enjoyed the movie! I watched it with my mother over break and we both love it. It is full of wonderful scenery and great actors, but the story is amazing!!

My mom & I are BEST friends. There is nothing like the bond between a mother and daughter. I cannot wait to watch this movie! Thank you for sharing. :)

I have yet to see the movie because the book was SO hard to get through! I guess I should rent the movie and maybe I would love the story!

I want to watch it and I will watch it, but only after my CAT scan and Dr. appt next week. If I were to leave my 3 girls, I would just die, which is what I've been afraid of since diagnosed 2 years ago.
