Great singing, Entertaining, Great music

See it if You saw the movie and liked it. It hews closely to the movie, without the violence. Here the violence is inferred

Marvin's Room

Boring, Great acting, Slow

See it if you know the story and appreciate it. It is well acted and occasionally funny, but the story is depressing and honestly, a bit dull.

Don't see it if The story had a lot more meaning back in the day (during the AIDS crisis). If you are turned off by depressing family situations, stay away
