Imaginary Heroes

One of the best script movies ever! I love a good script. There are so many amazing lines in this movie, I feel like panic at the disco could write all their song titles for their next cd from this movie.

“Matt Travis was a great swimmer. But it wasn't just that he was a great swimmer, it was simply that he was greater at swimming than anyone I ever knew was good at whatever they were good at.”

This movie sticks with me. It has that lasting quality, and I want to re-watch it every so often. The piano music carries this film from one point to next, and culminates in a dramatic ending that is touching and impactful.  Each actor is at the top of their game.
