Everything's Gone Green
Um, if you really want to make yourself homesick over Thanksgiving, when everyone else you know has gone home for the weekend, watch a movie set in your hometown.
I enjoyed Everything's Gone Green (screenplay by Douglas Coupland), but the experience was bittersweet. I spent the entire time being like, "Look how pretty it is!" There were all kinds of beautiful mountainous vistas ("Look! There's water! And Mountains! In the same place!") and trees and the number eight and the Grouse Grind and glass buildings... I had forgotten how beautiful it is. And how open.
I guess when you feel closed in by a place you don't notice how open it actually is physically.
So the movie was not bad, but worth watching just to experience Vancouver on screen, actually playing itself for once.
