Yesterday I went to see Lion. I walked out of that theater a changed person. I had a stark realization that every single person I come in contact with has a story. Even the peope we don't particularly like are people with a story. In the film a little boy gets lost after he fell asleep on a train platfom. He later ends up in an orphanage and is then adopted by an Australian couple. Then for 25 years he lived a really good life until he ran into a favorite Indian snack at a friends party. This marked the beginning of his Google Maps fueled journey to find his family that had been looking for him too. I won't spoil the rest for you guys. Dev Patel did an amazng job in this film.
I have said this before but movies have a huge impact on me. They make me feel something or change my pespective on the world. Lion made my heart race. Other movies made me emotional and contemplate my own life. I think Youtube has a similar effect. Films and videos both take me away from my own world for a few short hours and make me experience things that I otherwise may never see in my lifetime.
Thanks for reading and I will see you in my next post.
