Rent was indeed moving. That was an obvious.
But it was interesting the effect it had on all of us. Wonder Woman, it didn't seem to effect, as much, but know it did stur up some issues. Me, it bothered a lot, i started to see all of those characters as us, i started thinking about all of us going through these things and then myself being put into Collins possition and Wonder Woman being Angel. Thats about when i started to sob into her shoulder. but my mom is who it mess with the most. my mom was in San Fransisco when the first AIDS wave hit. she sat and watched all her friends begin to die from an unknown sorce, and then for them to find out what it was but not know how they are getting it so more died, and then to finally realize how they were getting it. by the time that whole proccess was done my mom out of about 50 people she knew from work and her social friends had lost all but 2. thats not a joke, thats not an exageration. the scenes with Collins and Angel in the hospital and on the subway made my mom just sob, and as soon as the movie was done she ran out of the theatre sobing. when we found her again she explained to us that it had all looked so familure and she wasn't prepared for it. she cried off and on the rest of the night.
I want to see it again, who wants to go with me?
