paul oram's rating of the film About Schmidt

The grooms mother feeding him soup and describing whats really important in a marriage, oh boy, i nearly wet myself. Whats not to like about this film. Its totally honest and genuine in its portrayal of our journey into the last part of our lives, filled with doubt, regrets and a need to feel it was worth something. My family and I sponsor a child in Africa ourselves - its about time we wrote to them i think.
