Nelson MossKeannu Reeves
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
take your DMV test one more time just in case he'll be there to drive you home
|Sweet November always makes me cry. First of all, because Sara (Charlize Theron) dies. I hate it when the lead character dies. I hate it when any good guy dies to begin with. Second, because I know a guy like Nelson Moss does not exist. Nelson is too sexy. Nelson is also too freaking sweet. What a lethal combination! No wonder Sara died. She didn't think she could match him.|
From the moment Nelson appeared in that movie, I knew he was going to do the right thing despite his asshole exterior in the beginning. How sweet of him to take care of her. Sure, it was a bit weird that you suddenly enter someone's life the moment you meet them, but Sara was equally beautiful that I could see how Nelson would get trapped in her spell. I don't blame him though for having second thoughts because it was a bit odd for a woman to be taking in a different guy every month. That can actually equal to prostitution of sorts.
I love the scene where they run with the dogs in the beach. You can really see how Nelson has been transformed from the corporate robot to a warm-blooded human who also happens to look extremely sexy beside drag queens. Nelson was also so sweet and understanding and cool about Sara having drag queen friends. He handled that really well. He was just respectful and courteous enough to them.
He also said the sweetest things to her. I know I must credit the writer, but Nelson delivered it beautifully.
Nelson Moss: You define every law of nature I've ever known.
When is anyone ever going to tell me that? When? Do I really have to be terminally ill before anyone as sweet and as sexy as Nelson will take a look at me and think that? I don't know, but I guess I'm going to have to wait a longer time.
When Nelson and Sara fought, my heart was totally breaking into pieces. They were supposed to be together. My heart felt like it was being stomped on. I was totally bawling when Sara entered her home and there were November calendars all around. Somehow, Nelson redeemed himself to her. That was why I was crushed when they had this conversation:
Sara: What are you doing?
Nelson Moss: Buying redemption.
Sara: Redemption's not for sale today.
I'm selling redemption, Nelson. You can come by anytime.
