Its all in the name

My wife and I enjoyed watching the movie The Namesake. It chronicles the life of a young man who is born in the USA to Indian immigrants and given the name Nikolai Gogol, after a Russian novelist. The story line centers around Gogol's attitude towards his name and how that reflects his closeness or distance from his family. The movies highlights the powerful interplay of family, culture, and personal identity. It portrays a very positive view of marriage and family.
