    ‘There are people mad at Gerard for not cutting off his dad’. That is the problem with the generation- like Joel said, we are so obsessed with ‘an eye for an eye’. As a disabled Latina, there’s SO many things I could hold grudges for. It’s just not worth it. Well done to Gerard for growing up and maturing. (I also was lucky enough to see this film earlier this month at the San Diego film festival. It’s a wonderful film and not what you expect. Highly recommended)
