MEET ME WHERE I AM (2023) Dances WIth Films 2023

Feature length look at how we handle grief in our society and how we should change the way we view people who are grieving.

I’m mixed on this film. While I appreciate what it’s trying to do I kind of view it in the same way as the people it says it dislikes, those who say things like “well they are in a better place” or other less helpful things.  To me this is a feature length attempt at making us feel better.

Seeing this film on the 3rd anniversary of the death of my dad, an event I am still wrestling with, probably was a bad choice on my part. It wasn’t so much that the film kicked up things, more it just seemed to be saying things I didn’t really find helpful.  I don’t blame the intent of the film, rather I blame the way the film feels, which is like an extended educational short that is supposed to teach us things. I hated them when I was in school and dislike them as an adult.

I’m sure this film will work for some one but for me this was a miss.
