Biutiful: 4.5 Stars

Starring the forever gorgeous Javier Bordem, this movie was terribly sad but definitely worth seeing. The film shows the months leading to his death, in which he struggles with his bipolar ex-wife, adorable yet sadly neglected kids, and his high stress job. Downside: some parts of the plot weren't fully explained, like his ability to communicate with dead people. I realize that the picture I'm painting here doesn't sound ideal. But I would highly recommend this film. Highlights for me: modern day Barcelona provided a unique background, and to put it simply, Javier was looking fine.
