Without getting to review-ish on you, I watched a fantastic movie last night with the one and only Pacey Witter from Dawson’s Creek. Pacey, or Joshua Jackson as I am sure he prefers to be called, has grown up to be a stunningly handsome man and an even better actor since his Creek days.
The movie called One Week, starring Jackson portrays a man who just found out about his terminal cancer and sets off on a motorbike journey across Canada heading for the west coast. I felt like it was an accurate representation of the emotions that a cancer patient goes through, particularly finding out that it is incurable. Jackson’s character realizes the unimportance of material items and simply wants to be in touch with nature and the freedom that being on the road may bring.
I swear I read and watch things unrelated to cancer. You know, the occasional Seinfeld re-run, Real Housewives of “Everywhere” and even at times Duck Dynasty with Steve, along with the frequent rom-com. But, you know, this cancer ordeal kind of takes over and you become entranced with finding anything or anyone that you can relate to. That said, One Week was fantastic, whether you are battling cancer or not. Besides, who doesn’t like a little Pacey Witter in their life?
