Starbuck, Ken Scott (2011)
This film was so sweet. I thought I was going to see a comedy, not that I was expecting something bad, I just wasn’t expecting so much depth (or so many happy tears), everytime I teared up I was like ‘this is not what I signed up for’. The plot is outrageous but the feelings are all “human sized”. It’s a film about giving, about unconditional love, about something that’s too big to be true (having 553 children) and something that when you think about it seems be too big to be true: the love we can have towards our family. It’s the most heartfelt film I’ve seen in a while, and it’s still a comedy, I laughed a lot.
