Notes: Tuesdays with Morrie is a poignant story about real people
rediscovering what it means to be alive.
The story centres on two main characters. The first we meet is Mitch
Albom. A highly successful sports writer who seemingly has it all.
A successful carrier, loving wife and a gathering of friends. Along
with the usual trappings of a good life that can be measured in material
objects people collect.
Yet a chance interview on a late night channel of Morrie Schwartz,
his college professor from nearly twenty years ago creates a chain
of questions that had been ignored. Questions as to what price he
was paying for his success and comfort. Was his work negatively affecting
A reuniting with Morrie reminds him of the things that once were important
in life. The imagined and rewarding life that he had looked forward
to. One that made his current light start to fade and pale in comparison.
This is a real story about people who are learning to move and not
stagnate. One that is well worth watching. Many times.
