Watching it right now and I don’t recommend this movie if you already feel like you are experiencing Covid depression. It is slow and a depressing downer this far. Watch Lilo & Stitch instead.

I watched the trailer, and while I can't say you're wrong on that. It did tug at my heart strings.

I spend my entire 23 yr career dealing with people like the main character in this film. Human sadness and suffering takes it's toll on you. Whether you experience it first hand or are a witness to it.

I'm going to watch this film. It looks pretty good. I expect to leave it feeling a little sad, a little depressed. That's OK.

Sometimes it makes more sense to feel those emotions than to feel good from watching a bunch of cartoon animals prance on the screen.

It's better to feel really ****** emotions than to feel nothing at all, or mask what your feeling with some sort of analgesic. Whatever is numbing it eventually wears off, and then you just feel worse.

Suffering is central to the human condition. So is overcoming adversity, acceptance, admitting mistakes, and atoning for bad decisions.

This is the impression I get from the trailer, which would make it good cinema IMHO.

On a side note, when I retire and don't have to take a drug test any more, I'm smoking a giant bag of weed. All. The. Time......
