This movie is about a man whom is completely paralyzed due to an accident he suffered which hires another man to be his caretaker and a great friendship is developed between the two of them (you can find more about this movie here).
Many interesting topics were included in this movie. One of them is the fact that the caretaker pushed his dude to get out of the comfort zone as much as he could. The illness was not necessarily an issue to experience new things in life. If you really want something, a way can be found to get there. This applies for both of them. The caretaker had enough balls to go after what he needed and that was enough to get some attention.
This movie shows the fact that when we cannot get out from our comfort zone, we might need someone to give us a little kick in the ass. If our own motivation is not enough, someone can improve it. That’s what mentors do and sometimes that’s what friends do. Of course, we should always filter if we it is good to do that or bad. We all have friends that try to get us out of our comfort zone to do some nasty stuff that can hurt us in some way. If that’s the case, we should say no.
We can also see how different life is for people. Some live in wealth while some live in poverty (we all knew that already, but sometimes our imagination is not enough to see how big the difference really is). Some people try to live with that whilst others try to do something about that. In the end, it’s all about the mindset. Will Smith says that he grew up with the idea that where people are born almost didn’t matter. All that matters is what are people going to do about that and where they’re heading to. That’s what matters.
It is an awesome movie to watch and I feel I cannot find the right words to express its essence. Have you watched it? What’s your opinion about this movie?
