My Life Without Me (2003, Isabel Coixet)

Coixet will be hard-pressed to surpass this effort (although she comes dangerously close with Elegy). The story is beautiful(ly sad) and the actors are great. You will cry, cry, cry.
Circuses Are Past History - Like the man says, the past is a foreign country. My own past in Los Angeles is of little interest and the more time goes on, the less any of it matters ...
