So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return."
I watched the movie, Begin Again this afternoon because I was so bored. I watched mainly because Adam Levine who was my crush since 6th grade was one of the cast and also because of Keira Knightley. I loved her on the movies like Pride and Prejudice, Atonement.
I liked the ending even though it feels that Dan and Greta have this sort of chemistry, she didn’t end up being with him. I liked the scene where David is singing “Lost Stars” to the crowd and Greta was just listening and realized that she’s better off without him. She felt that with all these fame and pressure that David have, she could not be his priority. It feels like there are just some points in our life that we should be able to let go of the people that we once loved or cared for. I’ve also felt that a girl could be stronger even without a lover by her side. That to be able to “Begin Again”, she must start within herself and think of the choices that could help her to regain her peace of mind and being independent.
I liked how Greta also helped Dan to have more personal relationship with his daughter, Violet. The soundtrack is great and I have “Lost Stars” and “A Step You Can’t Take Back” as my most repeated songs. I hope I could watch more movie this week. :P
I want someone whom I could talk nerdy with, or laugh at some random silly jokes. I don’t want someone who is very sweet and turns out to be so bitter in the end. I don’t want mediocre, I want genuine love.
