“I had to bring my brother up here… He just had to see the view from up here. This means so much to me because this film means so much to me.

And uh thank you so much for letting me be free and telling me it’s Ok. Ah, Winona (Ryder) thank you so much for all your hard work and you are so brilliant in this film and you should be up here with me.
