I have a New Years Resolution with my brother Jeff. We will meet monthly in 2019 to watch a movie together. We alternate movie choices.
This month it was my choice and I picked Gran Torino. I haven’t seen it in a while but thought it had an especially good ending. I am not a huge fan of typical Clint Eastwood movies but this one was very well done. His character reminded me a little bit of Archie Bunker.
Jeff said he liked it as well.
The language was a little over the top for my taste but not out of line with the characters.
So the theme of the first two movies ended up being a character who sacrificed for the good of others. In Sling Blade the sacrifice was freedom and in Gran Torino the sacrifice was life itself.
