I am sure I'm not the first person to notice this - but yesterday I was watching 'Love, Actually' (Dir. Richard Curtis) and it was heartbreaking to see the parallels between Neeson's character in the film and in his real life. In the film he plays Daniel - a man who has to face up to life having lost his wife at a very young age, leaving him to bring up a child alone. In real life - he has two teenage children.
I'm not sure of the point of my blog actually. It was just a strange viewing experience - it's hard to imagine ever being able to watch the film again objectively, because now it is loaded with meaning due to Liam Neeson's real life situation. Very sad.
