    it’s just such a remarkably well-made, perfectly pitched family drama that hits all the right notes in a way that never once feels contrived. a rare thing, and something i ended up loving every bit as much this time around, watching it with my kids, as i did the first time i saw it with my own parents, nearly 30 years ago.

    found an “edited” version on tv, so i could finally show some version of this to the kids for family movie night. good news, both are now fans for life, so very much looking forward to hearing them do quotes from this around the house for at least two days before they go back to talking about video games and online things that i don’t even kind of understand.

    The tenth time I’ve watched this movie, but also probably the best: My wife rented out Beacon Cinema as her anniversary gift to me, I got to pick any movie I wanted, and we had a private screening with just our family at the theater. It was the first time any of us have been in a theater in over a year, which was already special enough, but then I also got to introduce my kids to one of my very favorite films on earth. All in all, a very good day.

    (& put ryan gosling in more comedy roles for the love of god; he’s got a timing here you can’t teach)
