I've never cried because of a movie until tonight, which is especially odd because I've seen The Royal Tenenbaums about a half-dozen times.
It started with Richie's suicide, of course, then happened again when Raleigh confronted Margot in the hospital. I almost cried when Eli says in the embassy garden, "I need help." Another near miss came when, looking feeble and knowing he's going to die, Royal looks up at Chas in the ambulance.
There are terribly few fictional movies you could convince me are real, but The Royal Tenenbaums would headline the list.
