The TV Guide: Over The Moon

Yesterday was my last full day here in NYC and I kept things pretty chill. David and I worked for most of the day and then we went out for a quick bite to eat at Cafe Asean in the West Village before going to see Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna) at the Angelika Theater in Soho:


I can't remember the last movie that I saw that made me cry as much as Under the Same Moon did. I wept during The Kite Runner but not as much as I did last night. I suspect the last movie that touched me in this way was The Joy Luck Club many years ago but that's a story I don't really need to get into right now. Under the Same Moon tells the tale of 9-year old Carlitos who ventures across the US/Mexico border in search of his mother who fled to the US in order to make money to send back home to him and his grandmother. When grandma dies, Carlitos takes off for the US to find his mother under the most impossible circumstances. Naturally, he meets friends along the way who help protect him and help him find his way. I'm totally serious, I cried at pretty much every point of this film. The movie really tugs at every heartstring you have and you end up leaving the theater feeling a bit emotionally exploited. It might be a bit of a spoiler to reveal that the story ends well but there has to be something to look forward to as the story progresses. The last scene in the film just hit me so strongly in the chest that I had to take a moment before I could leave the theater. People, this movie packs an emotionally wallop that cannot be denied. I knew it would be good ... the trailer really sets you up for what's in store ... but I had no idea it would be so emotional, for me at least. I would highly recommend this movie to all of my friends ... it's a movie deffo worth seeing. Forget the politics, it's all about the emotion with this film.

This evening David and I fly back to LA to spend the rest of the weekend together there. I'm looking forward to the amazing weather I hear LA has been having, tho, I really can't complain with the weather here in NYC this week. It's been really nice. I'm sure it'll be even nicer when I return next.
