    The deeper part of this movie (which I have just seen for the first time) is showing us two different outcomes for Willie. One reality if he hung himself and died the other if he just ran away to the big city and started a new life. My God this movie is beyond powerful. So many messages here. I recommend that you watch it fifty more times. Each time I discover something else that I missed. This movie has great significance to anyone who has grown up in a dysfunctional home and never left.

    This movie was better than therapy! That was my alcoholic dad, my nana, my dear sister, crazy house. I killed myself too (in my mind)... I had to in order to survive all that crazy sh*t. My favorite (and most helpful part) was when the adult Willie cut down the dead teen-age Willie from the tree, sent his friend away and said that he wanted/needed to stay there and talk to himself. I've been doing that for years. This movie taught me that I, too, need to bury him. I have. Awesome

    Awful film. Smug, whiny, insufferable central character. "Sweet William" is just a nauseatingly precious.

    Chris is so underrated, just because he's Canadian?

    OMG!! CHRIS! I can't believe it! haha... that line everybody's wondering about is: "I just want you to know that I care about you." And then Chris says: "You can just tell me that."
