Great movie!! The previews don't do it justice. This is just a wonderful story about intergenerational relationships, culture clashes, and dealing with life and death, with a beloved vintage car at the center of it all. Clint Eastwood delivers a fabulous performance, and I don't know why this film wasn't nominated for more awards. It is alternately hilarious and gut-wrenching as new widower Walt tries to deal with his Asian neighbors and the numerous gangs that have taken over his Detroit neighborhood. Clint's character is an equal opportunity offender in his language and slurs, but is really a compassionate caring man underneath that crusty exterior - especially when it comes to the ultimate sacrifice. Movie buffs of all ages will enjoy this movie; you must see this!
