    "Learning about Judith Barsi's death makes me look at the film in a whole new light, and I get overwhelmed with sadness every time I listen to the song 'Soon You'll Come Home.' The fact that her character wanted nothing more than to have a happy and loving family, when Barsi had the exact opposite in real life."

    "Man, the scene when he gets the house to Paradise Falls and finally reads Ellie’s book of adventures. The final words he sees from her let him know that she didn't want him to be a bitter old man, but instead find a new purpose in life beyond her. Honestly, it’s such a fantastic movie about loss."
