The movie Pete’s Dragon (2016) had a few flaws and plot holes — I’m sure the Everything Wrong With <Movie Title> people on YouTube will have fun with it — regardless, the movie touched me more deeply than any movie I’ve seen. My emotional response was extreme even for someone who is touched by anything sappy.
Those emotions are what I want to capture in my writing.
I plan to see it again so I can have another good cry.
If you have a heart, I recommend you see the movie. Take a handkerchief.
