Gran Torino

We saw Gran Torino and loved it.  I was prepared for a completely different kind of movie, but Eastwood shows some pretty good character development as the story develops.

We begin by seeing Eastwood’s character at his worst, and pretty much expect to see that played throughout the movie.  We have a few surprises, however, as he gradually warms to his Hmong neighbors — and they to him.  The way the ending works out is unexpected and quite well done.  I highly recommend seeing this movie, soon and maybe more than once.  I give this a solid four stars.
