Jonathan Safran Foer makes a way to my heart with his quirky stories and writings.
“If things were easy to find… they wouldn’t be worth finding.” Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close is adapted from Jonathan Safran Foer’s 2005 novel of the same name. Read the book couple months ago. Brilliantly written! And today watched the movie, wasn’t too disappointed. Needless to say the book got far more depth to the story including countless well written and descriptive lines.
As far as I remember during the movie these dialogues have touched me.
If things were easy to find, they wouldn’t be worth finding.
