I would put money down that this film will be the Oscar winner next year. This warm bear hug of a movie has all the emotions that Academy voters love.
The reality is this is a wonderful look at man who grew up with a loving family and a father who was always in his corner. His parents did what was best for him from sending him to a school for the deaf, where he discovered his love of performing by re-enacting Tom and Jerry Cartoons for the kids, and on to a regular high school where he thrived. It also deals with the aftermath or a car accident that injured his dad.
I was beyond moved by the film and was reduced to a complete sobbing mess, in the best possible way.
This film is fill of joy and life and it is a perfect example of what films should do, move us to feel things deeply.
One of 2023’s best films it is recommended to the highest level.
