Riding the bus with my sister

Have anyone ever seen this film? This movie ranks as one of my most favorite movies ever. Maybe because my aunt is also someone with mental disability that I find this movie moving but then again, the content is so inspiring. The story is about Rachel and Beth. Rachel is a successful, driven fashion photographer in New York while Beth is her only sister who had mental disability. When their father died, Rachel's intended short visit was extended since she got so curious as to why Beth ALWAYS ride the bus. From then on, Rachel started to know new things about Beth and Beth, though having mental disabilities, was able to teach Rachel the simpler and brighter things in life. The story is well made and I love the pacing. I really recommend this one. Beth is one tough woman and Rachel, with her cold exterior is somewhat sensitive and weak compared to Beth.

Yup I do like it because unlike common movies, this one dealt mostly on family and sibling relationships :) Maybe my disabled aunt did kicked some effect that's why I like it then again, it's really worth the time watching. The movie was out way back in 2005.

No problem :) I hope you guys can watch it too and share your thoughts :D The movie was inspired by Rachel Simon's memoir of the same title. We may not always agree with Beth's views in life but if there's one thing Beth had that Rachel didn't, it's "contentment" :)
