Movies are an excellent way  to see someone’s creative depiction of life’s

issues and effectively examine a variety of feelings. A good movie makes you think, feel, learn and develop insight to similarities in your life.  Below are a few of my favorites.  

A few good men 

An all star cast confronts the notion of doing the right thing .
