I really liked Charlie St. Cloud because it is about letting go of things that make you sad and make your life hard. In the movie Charlie loses his little brother in a bad car accident and instead of Charlie dying too the ambulance medic prays to St. Jude and asks for Charlie to be given a second chance. Instead of enjoying his life, though, Charlie lives with the memory of his brother and works as a caretaker at a cemetery. Even though he chooses to literally live with dead people by living at the cemetery Charlie meets a girl. And in meeting this girl he has to choose to let go of the memory of his brother and live his own life. The story is good in that there are a lot of Catholic parts to the story like St. Jude. There is an unecessary scene between Charlie and the girl. Overall I liked the movie and Zac Ephron was very good.
