This movie is great, however, I knew when both my dad and husband told me this movie was sad that it must be. They were right. Don't get me wrong, this is not a depressing movie, it is a great movie but it'll make you cry. Although it would be enjoyable for kids and adults, I don't think kids would be able to fully appreciate all the aspects of the movie. The story is sweet not only because of what Carl does for Ellie but also for what he does for Russell at the end. The characters have a lot of personality and the story is a positive one.

If you want to watch a happy uplifting movie this is not it. That being said I think it was well done and worth watching. I watched this movie for a history of furniture and interiors class. I'm not an expert but I was looking for mistakes and the design, furniture and even the costumes looked spot on to me. They actually filmed on location instead of in a studio in order to have a seamless transition between inside and outside the house. Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet did an awesome job at bringing their characters to life.

This book is great! It has success stories to inspire you, exercises to do and recipes for meals and snacks. Eating the foods that this book suggests is really easy. The recipes are tasty, filling and not boring or bland. Because I already eat most of the foods in the book, it was nice to find other healthy ways to prepare them. Not only does it have suggested foods, but it tells you why you benefit from eating them. So, if you want to eat healthier and shape up, give this book a try!
