One of the Best Romantic Comedies Ever

Mozart and the Whale -

As you probably know, I love romantic comedies so very much! I've seen hundreds of them yet I only have a short list of favorites. I just watched one of the best romantic comedies ever, it's easily earned a spot in my "Top 10 favorite Romantic Comedies" list! It had the best message and the best plot. I absolutely adored it!

[Spoiler Alert]

It's about two young people who are stricken with Asperger's, which is a form of Autism. One is this guy, who's had the illness all of his life. He's even managed to get a Bachelor's degree despite his illness. He's also a mathematical genius. Then, there's a girl who has always been considered 'weird' but never knew what her problem was until she consulted with a doctor at the local university.

The guy leads a support group for people with Autism/Asperger's and one day the girl comes in, and he's instantly taken by her presence. Despite their mental illness, they date and have fun with one another. She tags him as her boyfriend and eventually they're intimate.

They move in together, and he gets a job at the university, dealing with his favorite thing, numbers. As they get too close she pushes him away, and they break up, getting back together only shortly thereafter. He asks her to marry him, but she feels as though he's only trying to save her from herself although he does truly love her. She breaks away from him and attempts suicide...................

To find out how the story turns out, you MUST watch the movie! My words don't even give it justice...It's so beautiful and shows that love covers everyone, no matter their race, religion, sex, gender, OR mental state. It's so beautiful and Josh Hartnett was beyond great.

I love, love, love, love.
