Cloud Atlas (Movie) – Okay, I just have to write about this movie. No it is not young adult friendly in my opinion though I have read some young adult books with even higher parental advisory content, there is a different between seeing it and reading it. That being said as a disclaimer to those of you I talk to most often (who follow for YA recommendations), here are my thoughts on Cloud Atlas:
This movie really got me. I loved it. I know the reviews for this one are almost all either 5/5 stars or 1/5 but for me, it is a serious 5 star. It spanned centuries and had historical, modern, futuristic and dystopian elements that all weaved a beautiful tapestry of life. Beautiful. Simply beautiful in the most startling of ways, it doesn’t show you the external beauty, if shows you the inner beauty at the core of everything and everyone. Unforgettable.
Edit: After watching it again –
EVEN better the second time!
