Life as a house
Holy Christ. Is pretty much what I was thinking to myself while watching this movie. First off I was totally unaware of the cancer theme in it. So that was a bit of a shock. I mean mainly I was just watching it because of my newest infatuation with Christian haydenson. And boy oh boy did he fulfill my expectations. You know how watching star wars youre like holy shit this is awful. Is he really that bad? And especially if youve seen him in that horrendous family drama, higher ground wherein he was the most whiny teenager Ive ever had the misfortune of watching ( I say that now, but just wait till I have a teenager of my own. IF I have a teenager of my own. Ever.) ahem back to my point. Which was that in life as a house haydenson blew me out of the water. He was actually amazingly good! I was so impressed. And of course Kevin Kline and Kirsten Scott-Thomas were fantastic.
On the whole even though it was incredibly depressing and a little too close to home (well except my father didnt try to build a house
.though there was that whole shed thing), a very very good movie, one which I would actually like to own.
