Comments: The opening does get you thinking about what is in the box. Nick will not find out until his mother dies.
Yes Nick’s mother does die years and years later. So Nick he is a complicated guy and we see he is aloft but what is the reason for him being aloft. He goes with his brother to help handle the arrangements.
Nick does start getting glimpses of his childhood with his mother. We also find out Nick’s mother was a unique individual. She was a character.
The more you see of Nick the more you feel for him. He does seem like an outsider. As the movie goes on that starts to change.
The box is forgotten about.
Nick starts to fall in love and it does not go how he wanted. Than he goes back to trying to push everyone away. He becomes a real SOB but only for a short time. He was hurt after all.
Nick does get the key to the box. As Nick’s life goes on the movie does get emotional. As Nick relives more of his memories he realizes just how much he loved his mother.
The ending is so emotional on so many levels. Its sad and happy both. An ending leading to a beginning.
