Definitely not a new movie at all (it's from 1991), but it was new to me! We watched this on DVD last week, and I really enjoyed it. Grand Canyon focuses on the intersecting lives of different individuals and their families in Los Angeles, beginning with the friendship that forms between a wealthy white lawyer and the black tow-truck driver who comes to his rescue when his car breaks down in a bad neighborhood. The movie was touching and funny and sad all at the same time, and I didn't want it to end because I was enjoying it so much! 9 out of 10.
