    ★★★★½

    Shocked at how many times I almost cried during this movie! Especially shocked that Mark Wahlberg was the one that got me closest! I'll never forgive him for this. His greatest transgression.

(Feel free to roll your eyes and dismiss this whole thing as a pointless humblebrag, but it’s relevant.) We made plans to grab lunch a…
