Seven Pounds is probably the movie Christy and I have disagreed the most about over the years. And it has gotten ugly! I’m surprised a fist-fight has never broken out!!! We both feel that strongly about our opinions of this film. I don’t know what she was watching, but I’ve never had a movie speak to me like this one did. I’ve probably seen it at least 100 times – and still get pretty emotional when I watch it! I don’t think he’s being selfish at all! He’s trying to help as many people as he can and find a way to end his pain and suffering in the process! Of course, he runs into some “complications” with his plan, but that’s one of the things that makes it such a powerful movie to me. There are definitely decisions to be made and I think they would be hard for anyone to know what to do. I wasn’t trying to “figure out” the storyline like Christy, I was just watching the movie and trying to put myself in the main character’s place – and wondering what I would do in the same situation... I like to think I would do the same thing.
Uh-oh, I can tell another fight is just around the corner when she reads this!
