About Schmidt.

A good film. Not a great film, but a great performance by Jack Nicholson. The feature impacted me emotionally, to the point of tears at a few scenes. It's basically about reality of aging and the meaning of life and facing disappointment and frustration. The solution suggested is perhaps congruent with Christianity, inasmuch as it basically involves renouncing amor sui. At any rate, the questions posed do cover the sort of ground that an 28 year-old loner, who wanders the town on a Friday night, running his fingers through his thinning hair, had better start thinking about.
