Did it bring me joy, this movie? It brought me tears. It brought me fury. It brought me pride. It brought me unfathomable appreciation. It brought be back to a time when my friends were very, very, very sick, and some died, and then some, miraculously it seemed, were alive enough and well enough for combination therapy, and whew. Big breath.
So yes, actually, it brought me joy. I sat in that film thinking about the men (in my case, it's all men) who survived the plague, and how dear dear dear they are to me, and how important they are to the world, and how incredibly grateful I am for their very lives.
