Velvet Larry: But on Christmas Eve, I'm gonna have a lot of very lonely people out of my club. Some even thinking about killing themselves. And they come here looking for companionship. They're looking for a little bit of love. They are looking for a little bit of hope.

I guess that there are no comments in this section because people are speechless after watching the movie. The clichéd label of a film where worlds collide, doesn't do it justice. Anyone who has ever felt the emotional pain of having it all and then seemingly having nothing will understand the message behind this tale. Also the raw emotions that are born through loneliness and suffering. Above all of this there seems to be an underlying message of the goodness of human nature and the fact that the world keeps on turning no matter what. Needless to say i really liked it and thought the acting was second to none. The most touching movie I have seen in a long time.
