Day 252

movie: Remember Me
starring:Robert Pattinson, Pierce Brosnan
genre: Drama
year: 2010
format: Shaw Video On Demand

plot: After the death of his brother, a young man falls in love with a girl after his roommate dares him to try to date her.

It's a tear jerker. The end has a small twist that I never saw coming, and I ended up crying through the credits.
It starts off like a typical me against the world film, having shades of Rebel without a Cause but it holds a much deeper point.

It's about how we as a society deal with death, grief, and overall disappointments in our life. It's definitely a meaner side to society, with scenes of bullying being a running thread.  The lows humans can get to without realizing that they have gotten there until it's too late.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Edward Cullen can act. Robert Pattinson proves without a shadow of a doubt that he's destined to be as serious an actor as anyone can get, that he's not just the kid from  the teen vampire movie. I knew he could sing, but this proves that if he's given a decent script to work with he's a honest star.
