    The choice reffered to in the film's title is one of the most painful movie moments we have ever watched. The film is heartbreaking & tragic. "Uplifting" films are not only those that make us happy, they are also those that make us hurt & empathize, & thus hopefully make us feel more & care more for those who suffer. The question is not what choice you would have made in Sophie's position, but rather what choices you will make in your life to assure that no one should have to suffer like this today.

Which is it for you - did this make you feel more connected or more alone?

    Mac doesn't say much, but eventually he opens up and asks one of the most profound questions of all - why? Why does a drunk survive an accident while an innocent passenger dies? Why do some of us get second chances? No easy answer, but something that all of us have to grapple with at some point(s) in our life. What has made you wonder why, and what types of answers have you come up with?

    I won't give away whether or not Woody really wins his million dollars, but it is not a spoiler to say that the money is not worth nearly as much as the relationship rekindled between father and son in this off-kilter road trip through the American Plains.

  • 12 Years A Slave




    Almost unimaginable that people can treat other people this way - and yet people did, and people do. How does that happen? How did it happen then, and how do we allow it to happen even now?
