Another Happy Day

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.
