It’s a movie I stumbled upon when I checked some random person’s list of 250 best movies on IMDB. The first and the only thing that drew me to watching the movie initially was Jack Nicholson, and I wouln’t lie, the rating of 7.2 on IMDB.
I read the summary on IMDB and it read “A man upon retirement embarks on a journey to his estranged daughter’s wedding only to discover more about himself and life than he ever expected.” The last bit is what attracted me towards it. About him discovering more about himself.
I must tell you the movie isn’t great, like Jack’s own One Flew over the cuckoo’s nest or any of the other great movies about life. But it does tap something inside of you. It will remind you of people you’ve met, of situations you’ve been in before, of moments you’ve spent like he does in the movie, or have wished to spend at some point in time in your life.
And small things, like writing letters, like sitting quietly on a moonlit night, like taking a hot bath, like crying.
It’s just a simple nice movie. Watch it when you’re bored and slightly philosophical. You may like it.
