if you haven't, go see Pixar's Up! seriously, like right now! topher and i went to see it last night and i was wiping tears away beneath my 3D glasses (ray-ban style glasses - how fun!) i am smitten and have been swept off my feet!
it's a vibrant tale of a heart broken old man and the delights of unexpected friendship and the undying spirit of adventure. the entire movie is an exciting feat in storytelling and graphical whimsy - but it's a silent montage early in the film that truly moved me. the scenes depict a couple's life together that is so achingly lovely and moving you forget you're watching animated characters. without words, you see them fall in love, marry and together, build the house of their dreams. through it all you feel the intensity of their love, the spirit of their happiness together, and, sadly, the sorrow of their losses. carl and ellie share a love that is meant for a lifetime and beyond.
we both left feeling so utterly in love - it was like floating on air (minus the balloons)
