To be honest I didn’t expect to enjoy the movie, especially when I saw it’s two hours long. But then I realize that there are really great actors playing in it such as Robert De Niro and Robin Williams. So watching this movie made me fell in love with it. I smiled when the patients got better and cried when something got worse. It was a more emotional movie than I expected.
