These two friends, who had been separated since high school for years, finally get back together and get together for good. As they were on the subject of books, which Harold wanted to be a teacher, Lillian, who wanted to be a reporter, had to turn down her dream. Instead, she opted for writing a book about the society in which they grew up and became a star. I loved the book Harold and Lillian wrote in their youth. Harold was someone who was one of the most popular girls in school. Lillian was someone who always appeared to be around her age, with a few years on. Their story was the perfect blend of high school-life and being on the stage. As we watched the process of their book, I was totally engrossed in the way the two friends progressed. I was so looking forward to seeing them enjoy their life. The music was a perfect choice for this film. I just loved the soundtrack. One song that I had really missed during the course of the film was "Wouldn't It Be Nice". As they grew older and later in their marriage, Lillian wanted to begin to write for school and found it very difficult. She fell in love with The Rock and their characters on stage were especially fun. I hope that all of you, as I did, will see this movie, especially those who grow up in the same society in which the characters were growing up. Just be sure to get a copy of the DVD. I'm glad I got it, and I can't wait for it to be released on Blu-ray. I can't wait for them to watch this film again. We must do everything we can to help the story be heard.

This was an incredibly moving film. It showed, with the ease of a film noir, the relationship between two men that has lasted almost three decades and possibly the greatest marriage in human history. Tom Hanks is an inspiration, not only to me as a film fan but to the entire human race. His performance is magnificent, and it is amazing that he didn't get more than an Oscar nomination. His "guilt" upon leaving his wife for 50 years was extremely moving. And although there are issues of fidelity between Tom and Lillian, it is never about the age difference, or even the actual age difference, as that was very irrelevant to the story. I was with the Hanks family when he visited their home in Utah. My parents had made a deal with Tom when he was younger to tell him that they were going to do whatever he wanted, and that he had to marry a beautiful woman if he wanted to be married to someone younger, and he was never to date again. I was thrilled when he went off to college, and I think that was why he got married to her, and maybe his parents didn't want to destroy their marriage. They felt that they had to take care of their oldest son, and they could not give that up. Tom, with his incredible look, extraordinary talent, and is one of the greatest actors of our time, had every right to be with his wife. I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking to see a true story of true love. It is a story that is not easily told, and this film shows that it can be told, and a great example of this. My only question is about the ending. I feel that I know what happened to Tom, but I really don't. I'll get back to you. I am leaving a comment here that is more about my experience than the ending, but I will be honest. I think Tom's real and greatest wife may be someone else. I hope you enjoy the film, and I thank you for making it, Tom.

This is an outstanding film that makes me feel like a second-class citizen because of the abuse of power that the rich received and used in the film. So many of the guys that we see in the film have unbelievable, questionable stories about how they got their wealth, and how the rich feel the poor and have done to them. There are actually quite a few of these guys in the film. The film is important because it is a powerful story and it provides a good example of the way that the rich feel. I hope this is an example of how things can go wrong with someone and lead to the death of the poor. The stories told by the filmmakers are not only of this film, but are of a story that the rich have told themselves for the last few years. This is a film that can have a great effect on the people and show them what kind of a world they live in. These stories should be watched by the public and they should be allowed to see that there are people who get rich simply because they are given an unbelievable amount of money. It is not a film that they should be watching, but a film that the poor should see that there is a problem, even if it is just a problem that has a small effect on them. I also believe that the film can be of help to those who are afraid of the problem of wealth inequality. These are the people who are struggling in a world that is beyond their reach, and should know that the rich do not care about them and have no regard for their life. I would recommend this film to any person who is interested in the problem of wealth inequality, the American dream, or an injustice that is growing in the world.

I'm not sure what the focus of the documentary was, but the interviewees were incredibly insightful about life after The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, and their own inner turmoil. They discuss the struggles of pre-TFA fame, the challenges of getting cast as a young actress, the struggles of playing a young child actor, the pressures of fame and their own true families, and their own troubles with drug addiction. Their reflections about how fame is the biggest curse of all, and that "The Fresh Prince" lived his life by his faith, broke many societal norms, and was considered a great and great actor. One thing that really struck me, I thought it was interesting how they presented everything in a way where no one was necessarily the voice of a character. They chose characters to present their stories from many different perspectives, which was refreshing and good for the younger generation. One thing that really bothered me, was the way the mother and father's relationships with the other characters were portrayed, especially with the mother. When you hear someone say "I love you" or "I love you" to the character she's talking to, there's a feeling of guilt or something that's off, or she's failing to show her love. In this film they did a great job showing the child actors at a young age, when they were still acting. But there's a huge disconnect from that when the mother is talking to the two actors she's with. As for the relationship between the two actors, they seemed like they had a real relationship, but I'm not sure if she really meant it when she said that she loved him. This shows that the director should have made some more subtlety. Overall, this film is great. It is very intelligent and realistic, as well as thoughtful. I was really surprised that the directors were so interested in the social aspects of this documentary, as they talk about how drugs and alcohol can really destroy a person's life. It's kind of strange when you think about how it might be an ordinary person's drug addiction, but the way they handled it was very interesting. I would say this is a film I would recommend to anyone who's interested in the roles of actors or the social aspects of the film, but at the same time I think they did a great job explaining how people in the film were truly acting, which was something I didn't really understand before I watched it. In this film the social issues are interesting, but I think they could have included some more subtlety. However, I think that's why this film is so great. It's not a film that you can watch just for entertainment, but it's a very thought-provoking film that I think anyone should watch. I'm glad it was released on Netflix, as this is the first film to be released on Netflix that I've seen.
