    Oh my god. Talk about a movie that instills wonder - the footage from our various trips into space and to the moon were at turns breathtaking, unbelievable and heartwarming - and it was so fun to see these grown men move with childlike wonder through their surroundings, laughing and joking and being just as overwhelmed as any of us. Fantastic.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie is visually gorgeous - painted backdrops, sweeping mountains, lush colors. That's my favorite part of it. Outside of that, I honestly don't even know what to make of it. There's some pretty outward racism (and brown face) included in here, and the story is not the most compelling - the tension between Kerr and Farrar seems unbelievable at best. And then you've got a crazy, murderous nun for some reason? The outside makes all of the nuns lust for more!?!?

    You know the movie was great when you literally applaud at the end - even after watching it by yourself in your living room. There are so many interesting stories intertwining in "Monsoon Wedding," but of course the central story is a marriage. I think one of my favorite characters in the film is the father of the bride - he is a devoted family man who loves his children fiercely and ultimately makes a brave decision to protect those he loves. The movie is full of joy and sorrow, all the stuff of life. Excellent!!
