It’s not perfect but it’s such a brilliant and moving story. That ending is just heartbreaking!! And I just love Benjamin as a character and how it has a Forrest Gump-like narrative (which is funny because they have the same screenwriter). However, some plot points bothered me like…
I don’t understand why Benjamin couldn’t take care of his daughter for as long as he would’ve been able to. Wasn’t it worth it for him to see her grow up for as long as he could?? I didn’t connect with his reasoning.
