Okay, that was adorable. I didn't really mean to become the person that watches Netflix original romantic comedies but after this delight, I don't regret it.
I was choked up for about the last 20 minutes of this movie, but I didn’t cry. I think that kind of tells how emotive this movie is without ever lashing out with didacticism or pretense. This movie mesmerizes more in what it doesn’t do than what it does almost. For example, there are no wartime flashbacks, no mom flashbacks, there is not an extended monologue, there isn’t even an antagonist. All those decisions avoid making this story anything less…
The most important thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved by a man who serenades you on top of an elephant in the sky while a chorus of angel children sing back-up vocals in return.
A chaotic, postmodern masterpiece that absorbs itself in spectacle and engages the frick outta me. I'm in love.
