jack’s story is what made the movie for me - the story of a guy who’s invisible, but really wishes to be seen, in every sense of the word: physically by children, and metaphorically for his abilities. i guess we’re all like that; there’s something deep and innate in us which desires affirmation. to be acknowledged for the things we do and say. to have someone listen when you talk, and not be ignored or ill-treated. when others recognise your special “centre” (to quote the film), you don’t exist in a vacuum, but amongst people who see you for who you really are. so for me, that final scene with jack sending a snowflake our way is a reminder to “believe” in others and yourself. a message that really resonated with me, anyhow.
