Inspiration of the day : RUST AND BONE ♥♥♥
I've watched it yesterday, and let me tell you : this movie is amazing. It's reality. It's crude. It's hard. But it's real. And it's a total masterpiece.
When you're in wheelchairs, everything is complicated. From opening a box to take a shower, it's never easy. Never. You're got to get through sh.it, sh.ittiest moments, and even sh.ittier people. It's the cold hard truth. And in that-
the movie was so true.
When Stéphanie realized she doesn't have her legs anymore, and she's going mad, she cries and shouts "What have you done to my legs!". It's like, she's passive. She's not acting anymore. And that's the main thing people do not realize mostly, it's that "yes we're different but we're alive, and we're also an human being." We got the same rights!
The love part of the movie-so well played and outstanding. They're both broken. Life took something to both of them. Together, they're like iron. I relate to Stéphanie so much; and for example, when they first had sex-because let's be honest, it's the first time all over again for her- and if someone like Ali would ask you if you want to f.uck, knowing how nice and kind he's been toward her, rough and f.ucked up as he is... I would at least have a doubt. If someone like him do not make it right-do not judge you, who would? That's the main difficulty in being dependent, at some point we do not know anymore how to place ourself. Are we asking too much or not enough? When he's helping her-it's pure. It's simple. It's just kindness. I never thought about having a love interest in my life, one day, but after watching this movie, I thought a lot about it. I mean-the guy who would watch me as a real person, he has to be broken. To have something different in him, something who made him suffer or else. It can't be a prince charming, on his white horse or else. It has to be rough one. A real person.
The whole movie was great. I loved how it showed both Stéphanie and Ali difficulties. The lights too. The doubts. How people are seeing you-are they actually? The scene in the bar when a guy flirts with her, and once he saw her legs, he says "sorry." Of what? That's so frustrating. As women, we want to please, to feel pretty and everything. I loved also how it has some kind of humor, when she says "What? Can't wh.ore train whales?" It's like, even when you're valid and just acting as grown woman, men/boys see you as sexual object. We always want to be seen for things that are underneath the envelope. I loved this movie. Because even if it showed the hard part of being different, it showed also that once you found your own light, who you are, through your flaws and differences-life carry on. + Firework by Katy Perry. The song is one of my favorite ever, and I related so damn much it hurts.
I hope you love this x)
