This movie shows how to deal with the pain of losing a loved one especially if the deceased is only a child. What would you do if you were in the shoes of the grieving father Howard (played by Will Smith)? It can also be therapeutic to express emotions even anger. Sometimes, you need to let your frustrations out. If you even have to question God why without undermining God’s divinity if you are religious. But the important thing is to let it all out.
This is what happened to Howard. He wrote a letter to Death, Time and Love and they responded… in person?!? It is like a wakeup call. Even though it happened on Christmas season, Howard was no Scrooge. You can’t blame Howard for his actions. How did Death, Time and Love deal with Howard? You have to watch the movie to find out.
The characters show how each one are connected. Just like dominoes, we are all affected and fall down and crumble. The movie script has quotable lines and words of wisdom. This is the most beautiful movie for the start of 201 7. I highly recommend it. Don’t forget to bring your handkerchiefs or tissues. Collateral Beauty is distributed and released by Warner Bros.
