However…… As I watched it I couldn’t help but think of the horrors of Nepal and the 10,000 people who recently lost their lives during the earthquake. As the movie dealt with the post earthquake devastation, I was reminded of a news story I read only this morning of Nepal having to tighten child travel laws to stop children, now orphans, being trafficked out of the country. Reality is so much more devastating than what Hollywood portrays.
The movie in its trajectory is fairly predictable for an American movie, complete with the unfurling of the old stars and strips over a devastated Golden Gate Bridge with the main character saying (and I have to confess I spoke this out word for word before he said it) We will rebuild.
