This past weekend we went to see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. We had been wanting to see it since the previews first came out, and it felt like it took forever for it finally to open, and then we waited another weekend. (We never go to a moving on hoping weekend since it's usually crazy, aside from Harry Potter and Twilight).
We knew from the previews that it was probably going to be incredibly sad. Everyone remembers where they were on September 11th, at least from a certain age on, so it is always tough to see movies about it. However, we still couldn't wait to see the movie. I am a huge fan of Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks, and the little boy seemed amazing from the previews.
I ended up really enjoying the movie, despite crying a bit. It was very tough to take at some parts, and completely incredible at others. It still blows my mind sometimes that authors are able to come up with amazing stories like this. Now that I've seen the movie and am intrigued by the main character, I really look forward to reading the book.
Has anyone else seen the movie or read the book? What did you think?
