Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Sammy: I've watched you forever, Caden, but you've never really looked at anyone other than yourself. So watch me. Watch my heart break. Watch me jump. Watch me learn that after death there's nothing. There's no more watching. There's no more following. No love. Say goodbye to Hazel for me. And say it to yourself, too. None of us has much time.

The power of this performance -- I literally just started crying from simply transcribing that quote. THIS MOVIE. I've seen this movie a dozen times and it only gets more emotionally and intellectually rich with each view -- I would've nominated something like half the cast for Oscars quite honestly but the masterful Tom Noonan was a particularly egregious oversight. A very happy 70th birthday to this man today!
