Stuart: A life lived backwards

I don’t know when I saw this film.  It was the only thing I ever tried to buy on Amazon.  They gave me back the money.  It never came in the mail. No idea what happened.

There is a wonderful interview with Tom Hardy on YouTube about playing the part of Stuart. Benedict Cumberbatch is no slouch in it either.

What I love the most about the movie is that it doesn’t patronize.  There can be astounding integrity even in a difficult life. And there can be missteps in lives that are quite smooth and unhindered that can seem very cruel.  Missteps in a difficult life can have repercussions that can not be  survived.  As Stuart himself tells his councilwoman “It’s the little things that kill the homeless.”

Thanks to littleqcumber.wordpress.com for the links to the movie.
