Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close…

Based on the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” is a 9/11 story told from a unique point of view. It is not about the drama of that dark day, rather, it’s about the aftermath of trauma, what people have to live with and get over, and all the things they can never get over. It deals with something important but intrinsically boring, people going through life in a low-grade fever of grief, loss and sadness.

Not what I thought it would be but I did like it for the grief process, showing the issues with Asperger syndrome¬†and also the child’s creativity.
