I watched Elizabethtown on DVD last night and cried my eyes out. I had no idea what it was going to be about - my local video rental place has such a limited selection that I'll watch anything that I haven't seen, that's there. Imagine my shock in realizing the movie was actually a documentary chronicling the last 3 weeks of my life. Except I was Orlando Bloom, the Kirsten Dunst character was a conglomeration of 4 separate people, I took buses and trains and planes in lieu of driving, geographically I was more North-east than South-central, and I didn't get the pleasure of the happy Hollywood ending. So all things considered, maybe it wasn't about my life after all, although it was a timely choice.

I can't decide if I enjoyed it because it was a good film, or if I saw it at the right time in my life. Or maybe I just like looking at Orlando Bloom.
