I have a lot of favorite movies, but this is definitely one of my most favorited of favorites. The first time I watched it, I was not aware that it would be entirely sung, and I had no clue how emotional it was going to be. Because I didn't know what to expect, I wasn't too sure how I felt about it afterward.
—everything from unrequited love to complete desperation, to loss, victory, honor, guilt, and selflessness, this movie will do it for you. I'm kind of obsessed.
Dare I say that this movie is perfectly cast, perfectly directed, and perfectly executed? I dare.
(I really ought to read the book!)
