A Movie for Your Netflix Queue

What happens when you lose touch with yourself? Sunday evening my husband wanted to watch the movie The Kid (2000), starring Bruce Willis. It’s a Disney movie with some depth, about a hard-driving consultant who is shocked when his eight-year-old self (charmingly played by Spencer Breslin) shows up. In the process he is forced to face parts of his story he has forgotten, including important losses and important dreams. I’ve watched this movie at least half a dozen times, and I never get tired of it. Nice performances by Emily Mortimer, Lily Tomlin and Jean Smart, as well.
