The Film

Fridge Brilliance
  • The use of color and lighting in this movie is amazing. In 1969, most scenes are bright with a slight gold tinge/hue to them to show how happy John and his family were, but in 1999, at least until the end of the movie, everything is dark, tinged with blues and greys to show how miserable his future became with the death of his father followed by the death of his mother when his dad lived only to die of lung cancer later on. Then, finally, at the end of the movie after they've all Set Right What Once Went Wrong, everything is bright again to show the viewer that all is right in the Sullivans' world again and they've more than earned their happy ending.
