I really enjoyed the film we watched in class today. The first part resonated with me the most. The woman dedicated her life, her heart, her soul to her lover yet because she was "just a friend" was not even notified of her passing. On the other hand, the woman who's husband had a heart attack had the opportunity to talk to the doctor and see her husband. Is their love any different? Their commitment? Their hurt? It's all the same. This woman had to sit back while her lover's remains were waiting to be claimed because she didn't have that right. She had to watch strangers come into the home they shared together and watch them pick and choose what mementos they deserved to keep because they were family and she was not. It made me want to jump into the film and kick them out! Lol. It really made me think about all the people in the world who've had to endure the same situation because they are just the "friend."
