I loved this movie.
i originally wanted to watch this due to Culkin, as I'm a big fan, but Chlumsky pleasantly surprised me!
It's a beautiful story and I really recommend it. There isn't really much to say, but just so you know, don't watch number two if you know what's good for you. It spoils the first one because it really does not live up.
Veta grows up in a funeral home with her father after her mother passed away during childbirth. She's smart beyond her years and is a worrier. She doesn't have time to be a kid between her visits to the doctor due to hypochondria and witnessing her Grandmother's demise (She has dementia), as well as new corpses being wheeled into the basement for funeral prep, but her best friend Thomas Jay shows what it's like to be a kid.
i don't want to spoil the rest for you, but I love this film:)
