A story about this — 4 years ago
This film really won me over. The scenery and colors throughout the film were amazing. The train setting is creative. And the topic is timely in the age of Oprah.
It did have somewhat of a cartoony feel to me, but I found that aspect kind of fun in itself. Sure, the characters are not really ones you can sympathize with, we only get to know them on a surface level, and some of the dialogue is completely ridiculous, but those things are forgivable in this instance.
Also, I love what the film is saying too about going to India to have a purposeful “spiritual experience” because I think there are lots of people in real life who are also that misguided.
