Some dreams test us

The other day I watched the movie "The Words". I generally watch this kind of movies that have a more unusual plot. This one sounded interesting: "A writer at the peak of his literary success discovers the steep price he must pay for stealing another man's work". Besides, Bradley Cooper was in it. He is a good actor, sure, but most importantly, he has nice blue eyes.

The movie was touching, although the plot reveals quite a lot. I didn't mind. You could feel the pain and the anxiety of the characters. The movie touches on several issues in a person’s life.

First, the main character, Rory, played by Bradley Cooper, is struggling with the fact that he may never become a successful writer. His book is refused by several publishing houses.  His father tells him to take responsibility of his own life and get a real job.
I think all of us lived with this fear at some point that we may never get good enough at our job, that we may never feel completely fulfilled with what we do. We all feel insecure sometimes. Our career is a huge part of our life. It says a lot about who we are and we depend on it financially but also personally.  It is one aspect that proves us we are worth something. Regardless of our job, we seek accomplishments that would make us proud of ourselves.

What also makes us confident and happy is when the dear ones believe in us. Rory was let down by his father who no longer believed in his son’s talent. I don’t know whether we should judge him or not.  After all, he loved his son and wanted him to stop wasting any more time in case his talent is not so conspicuous. But then again, if not even your parents believe in you, then who should? It must feel really discouraging when your parents no longer have faith in you.

Then Rory, in his frustration and desperation, writes a novel that doesn't belong to him. Some dreams test us. The regret that comes afterwards changes his entire life. Regret consumes Rory. That brings us to another painful issue: Do you live with regrets? Or maybe there is nothing to regret in life because every action we took lead us somewhere where we couldn't arrive otherwise. Is it true that when a door closes, a window opens? I believe so. However, Rory’s regret is different. He comes face to face with the consequences of his actions.

So ladies, what do you think? Have you watched the movie? What other movies do you know that impressed you?


  1. "What also makes us confident and happy is when the dear ones believe in us." That is so true! Really nice post, I can't wait to see the movie! I really liked Inception!
