This movie was very inspirational to me and was very hopeful. I think that Michael Caine and Tobey Maguire did a fabulous job and some of the scenes were so moving that I was almost in tears just because of the emotion. Definitely not cheesy, I respect that it raises important issues, makes you consider your values. It made me think again about everything I’ve always believed, and challenged me to think beyond the obvious.
Although I haven’t read the book, clearly this is an original story by John Irving, and more sentimental than I would expect from him.
