I had seen this trailer ahead of the last few movies I’ve gone too and I kept meaning to put it up, but then kept forgetting. Though it looks like a bit of a downer and a sort of retread of similar movies about the turmoil that happens in a child’s life at the death of a parent, I am very curious about this adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. I tried to read Everything Is Illuminated with my book club, but just couldn’t get through it. It was just a little too weird for me. Did anyone have any luck with either of his books or this movie? Oscar bait or the real thing?
