Uncross the Stars
When faced with the loss of a loved one, we often feel as though the world has ended. It’s only when we go through the grieving process, and emerge transformed, that we realize with every loss is a gain. With every ending is a new beginning. With every destruction is a new creation.
Uncross the Stars is an interesting, soulful journey of that process as the main character Troy carries out his deceased wife’s last wishes: To uncross the stars, and to build his aunt a porch. Perhaps what I found most interesting about this movie was the multiple layers of metaphors… within each series of relationships, there are multiple meanings, layers of meanings, and ways that we are touched.
Without revealing too much of the plot, it’s safe to say that you’ll be touched in many ways as this movie unfolds, and it’ll challenge you to look at the relationships in your life with a new light.
