If you've seen Up, you know that it's a majestic story about how you cry like crazy during the first 10 minutes and then other stuff happens for a couple hours, but you can barely really see it through the constant stream of tears pouring out of your eyes. Also, there's a guy who refuses to sell his property to a big developer.
But this (incredibly sad) fictional dilemma is based on a real one - the story of Edith Macefield, who famously turned down a million dollar offer for her home by a property developer, who went ahead to build around her tiny farmhouse.
And even though Edith died in 2008 (at the age of 86), her house remained. Disney affixed some balloons to it in 2009 as a promotion of Up.
Incredibly, the house still stands there. You can even view it on Google StreetView.
Now think about the first 10 minutes of Up and bawl your eyes out.
