Elliott: Death is actually a more unifying force within family than love. And that's a mind-blowing concept.
Saw this movie the year my dad was dying, and I thought in certain ways it really reminded me of my blended "family." And the line that stood out the most was the one above, spoken by the protagonist, Elliott. I recall sharing this (the movie and line) with my dad and aunt, during my visits with them. I had just seen this movie. Truly, death was magically doing what love should have. That's not a good thing. Just reality. And almost everybody, from the dying to the survivors, had a role.
