Film Recommendation of the Week...

The Sea Inside
Release Date September 3, 2004.
Spanish w/english subtitles.
Running time 2 hours 5 minutes.

Javier Bardem gives another amazing performance, this time as a quadriplegic (due to a diving accident) who is trying to fight for his right to end his life in the Spanish courts. He loses the court battle but eventually takes cyanide.

A tremendous movie that won the Oscar for best foreign language film and over 14 Goya Awards. The acting by the whole cast is superb, and I highly recommend this film for those who enjoy grappling with existentialist questions on the meaning of life.
