New thread about movies
Movies about caregivers, illness, and the like. And they don't all have to be morbid or sad, either.
We just saw The Intouchables, a French film based on a true story. It's about a very wealthy paraplegic Frenchman who hires a Senegalese immigrant from the projects as a caregiver. Very funny and yet very real.
Another wonderful movie is "Away From Her" with Julie Christie, who was nominated for best actress for her portrayal of a woman with early-onset Alzheimers.
And there's "The Savages" with Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney (Oscar-nominated) as siblings dealing with their father.
All available thru Netflix.
Any other movies?
