This film is a new favorite of mine. It took me a while to see it, but now I know what all the fuss was about. Love in a time where you could face some serious consequences for loving someone who was even just a little different from you. Where expressing that love wasn't as instant or impersonal as a text message or facebook comment. But took the form of letter writing and served as comfort during times of isolation and fear. In the end it is a sad story but I still find myself longing for a time like this, through romance and tragedy.
