Art mirrors life, and in so doing it wonderfully reflects some of the images we hold nearest and dearest to our hearts.

Joe Garner excels at using film and text to explore the special people, events, and influences of our lives. His work in Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates . . . is no exception, as Garner taps memorable moments from films such as Terms of Endearment and Risky Business to honor the themes of unconditional love, tenderness, forgiveness, respect, and numerous other maternal attributes. Actresses ranging from Sally Field in Forrest Gump to Lainie Kazan in My Big Fat Greek Wedding portray the wide range of emotions and strengths that real-life mothers possess and their children rely upon.
Life Is Like a Box of Chocolates . . . blends famous quotations, poignant movie dialogue, evocative still photography, and moving scenes in a meaningful salute to motherhood. What a wonderful tribute . . . what a treasured gift package this one will become.
