THG Recommends... 50/50
Go see 50/50 starring Joseph Gordan Levitt and Seth Rogan.  With a great cast and clever dialogue, this movie is refreshingly good.  While the subject matter is heavy, it does a good job of being touching and funny at the same time.  I loved it and I think you'll love it too.  Just remember to bring the Kleenex.

Mongolians see their picture for the first time
[E]ach person photographed really prized and protected his or her polaroid (fearing that we wanted to keep it), and barely let us see it when it was developed! the children automatically stored it away once we showed them what was the very first picture of themselves. it was a really great and humbling experience and showed us how much just one photograph can mean to people who have never had one of themselves.
