Has this ever happened to you?

Has a movie trailer ever made you cry? I should probably be embarrassed to admit this, and maybe I just shouldn't write about it, but the trailer for Cameron Crowe's new film, Elizabethtown, really punched me in the chest. And not just because I love Crowe's movies. (Well, except... no, I liked that one. But let's just say he didn't totally have me at hello.)

No, just watch the trailer, if you're interested. (The 10-minute "First Look" is even better.) There's some of the schmaltz that peppers every Cameron Crowe film. But every one of them usually has a moment (hell, several moments) that really gets me. And they're also usually pretty damn funny. I can't wait until October 14.
