I love cinematic experiences but when art is about love it has to have some “real” feel to it. Some experiences are just incredible raw and honest, others are real but at the same time very cinematic and beautiful. Some are about true love or friendship, some pure fantasy, most of them are about that incredible feeling of being in love or true deep friendship – and the poignant consequences.

While generally speaking it is a love story, I personally don’t care about the main couple (yet I love the movie, with one of the greatest soundtracks in history). What I care about is the small “side story” of Alice Munro.
