A lot of movies have attempted to tell the story of a man having a midlife crisis, but few have done it as well as "A Hologram for the King." To get to this positive review, required more the 75% of the movie to pass before me. Which meant, I spent an hour and a half trying to decide whether I liked the film or not. Then it happened! Something all great movies require from me; a connection with the main character. At the age of 32, I am beginning to clearly see the challenges before me: work, saving for a house, travel, getting married, maybe having a kid. Much like Tom Hanks’ character, I too can feel the weight becoming too much. I am not sure if it will all lead to a midlife crisis, but now I know I am not alone.
Be good to each other,
