Film & Discussion

Movie: As Good As It Gets 

Melvin has been diagnosed with OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). He avoids stepping on sidewalk cracks and touching other people and wears gloves all the time. He eats at the same restaurant every day, sits at the same table, insists on the same waitress, Carol, and always orders the same meal. 
Suddenly, Melvin’s life takes a turn. His neighbor Simon, who is an artist and openly gay, is hospitalized after being violently attacked by a group of robbers. Melvin reluctantly agrees to care for Simon’s dog during his owner’s recovery
