don't fear death, fear an un-lived life

Tuck Everlasting is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen. The film deals with the idea of, if you could live forever, would you? The story is about a young girl named Winnie who stumbles upon a boy who falls in love with her, although she soon discovers that this boy cannot die and neither can his family. This is due to them drinking water from an enchanted spring. The movie follows Winnie after her encounter with the Tucks, and deals with her trying to decide whether she wants to become an immortal as well.
My explanation does not do the movie justice, but it's a wonderful story. It makes you think about life, and if you had the opportunity to live forever, would you take it.

Ps. If you want to watch the movie, it can be found on google. Here.

Whenever I watch this movie I feel as if I myself am Winnie, and her decision is the one that I must make. The cinematography is amazing, every scene is filled with magical brilliance.

This movie was originally a book. I'd recommend reading the book as well. It's really truly lovely.
