I really enjoyed the movie. I was moved already in the first scenes when Leonard could not write his name on the bench or an exam in class. He was an A student before that all happened. I am so emotional when it comes to kids. That is why I got into this movie so fast. It is definitely worth watching. I clearly remember one sentence which made me realize a lot. Leonard’s mum said that she never asked why she had such a perfect child, did she deserve a son like Leonard. But she demanded an answer why he got sick. That made me think that we do not appreciate what we have. Our health, possibilities, home and family are not an obvious things but a gift.
