Movie Info

Ed Stone's bittersweet drama Griffin & Phoenix concerns Griffin (Dermot Mulroney), a divorcee suffering from cancerous lesions in his chest that give him a life expectancy of less than two years. He falls in love with academic advisor Phoenix (Amanda Peet), and the pair decide to 'live life to the fullest' by fulfilling all of Griffin's childhood fantasies, from painting water towers to sneaking into movies to hopping freight trains. But a secret of Phoenix's threatens to damper the joy of their time together. Sarah Paulson, Blair Brown, Alison Elliott and Lois Smith co-star; John Hill authored the script.

    yet another love story , carefully crafted, well acted and surprisingly positive albeit it's subject matter.

    This movie was good (it was what you'd expect) but the ending missed the mark. All else leading up to the end was the way it should be: happy, sad, beautiful, a little funny, quirky etc. But then the ending just dropped the ball and, in my opinion, they chickened out of doing a proper ending. Anyways, that aside, this movie was nice. Dermot and Amanda were sweet, lovely to watch (great chemistry). It made me laugh and cry, and for that, it's not half bad. What did this movie teach me? Being with someone you love can make even the worst moments in your life better, good even.
