I watched Big Fish, a 2003 Tim Burton movie, tonight. The film follows the life story of Edward Bloom (Ewan McGregor/Albert Finney) and his strained relationship with his son, Will (Billy Crudup). Will hasn't talked to his father for years, following an incident that strengthened his belief that his father was a liar who didn't care about his family. He approaches him again only after he learns that his father is dying.
I liked the movie which entertains and tries to tell a story about small people trying to become big. And it is hard to argue with a line like this: "Dying is the worst thing that ever happened to me".
