This is an incredibly moving film. The first half deals with a dying single mother's desperate struggle to ensure the future of her retarded son (Bee), while the second half focuses on the son's struggle. There are interesting portrayals of how society tends to mistreat the desperate and the not so fortunate. There is irony when May, who is one of these people and the subject of Bee's infatuation, finds herself in the opposite end of the spectrum. This film is excellently acted, you can't help but care for the characters, and it's also very believable, which makes it incredibly moving. Thoroughly recommended.. be forewarned though, a supply of tissues might come in handy! 10/10
