We found this movie on Netflix while searching for something funny and new. This film is a very pleasant surprise and easily could have have been a crowd favorite in the big theaters, if it had been widely distributed. It's the story of three people in a love triangle, all of whom lost a spouse earlier. it deals with the emotions of partner death and loss, regrets, reminiscences, moving on, and looking back and forward in romantic relationships. Anyone who has experienced these events will find something here to relate to. I have experienced some of these, and it brought up strong feelings for me. Also, it has an interesting view on what happens after death, rebirth, and heaven. If you are religious, this could be the starting point for interesting discussions on your faith about death and on our time on earth.
A very skilled cast and crew brings life to the script, adding their own creative quirks and idiosyncracies to the characters. None are heavy handed, and almost always they strike the right balance between individual style and universal traits. The script is slanted toward younger characters, so older audience members may not have had the same experiences in dating. However, the emotions portrayed are ageless. The only weak points in the script are minor. They are a reliance on cliches about regional differences in people. The characters from the Midwest are portrayed as somewhat unsophisticated and slow. The head angel from New York is presented like a brash, jaded stereotype from that area. These stereotypes, though, are within the bounds of typical movie cliches about regions.
Overall, well worth the time to watch. It will have you alternately laughing and probably crying, and reflecting on your own life and its history.
