Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind...

This is lovely to look at and a nice repurposing of Ms. Perry's work. I'll need to share with Jane and reflect further. Curtis

That's certainly a remarkable performance. Whenever anyone mentions the cost of treatments for such life threatening conditions, I'm outraged.

P.S. One can't help but think of this moment in cinema history.

No quick answer but I know one thing: Greece must be way up there in consumption of plastic bags per capita in EU(goes hand-in-hand with greatest number of cell phones per person plus most obese children, most smokers, most serious recession, largest neo-nazi party, most corrupt politicians, public sector officials, etc. etc.), so after compiling this yet-to-be-finished list, I guess the answer is YES.

Thanks for this look at a remarkable boy and his story.
