Bucket List


"The Bucket List" is the name of one of my favourite movies. It starts Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson as two terminally ill patients who end up sharing a hospital room. They have very different backgrounds but form a bond in which they agree to help each other fulfil their Bucket List: i.e. a list of things they want to do before they "kick the bucket".
