The Bucket List



Probably everyone knows the premise of this film. Two dying men decide to make a list of things they would like to do before they die. They are both able-bodied, and have months to live.

The points gotten across by the movie are obvious, but the acting is good. If you have too much death and dying in your life as it is, the film is depressing, but it does say two things very clearly and, I think, importantly:
  1. seek what gives you joy
  2. share your life with those you love, up to the final moment

I think that makes the film worth seeing.
