In the film Elizabethtown, Cameron Crowe exposes his heart. This very personal film shares his joy, his grief, his relationships, his understanding of what makes people tick. When Drew is forced to deal with the death of his father, and all those who loved him, a true journey of the soul is set out for us to watch. Claire reminds me of a guardian angel, gently holding Drew's hand, as he deals with his loss, and all the people from his father's life. There is a lot in this film, I'd like to see it again to truly absorb everything. The music is great, and sets a wonderful tone. I think this is a refreshing film, that challenges us to look at life, death and the road along the way.
