Irwin glides past cliches of prep-school lit to tell a pitch-perfect tale of youth's thrown-away chances at love and friendship, and maturity's well-earned second chances.
"I Am" - An extraordinary documentary by Tom Shadyac about what is wrong with our world, and what we can do about it. Super life affirming and such an inspiration to pare down and live simply. I would love to hear this man speak!
