21 Grams is a great film with many twists and turns and themes. I'm looking for this to be among the most engaging discussions as Inarritu's films are among the most innovative plot-wise. We'll watch a video commentary and share our thoughts on the film afterwards. Looking forward to chatting with you. Thanks. Free
