As a quote person, I am constantly on the look out for movie lines that stand out and speak directly to me. The quote I gleaned from this film was basically one word: "Yet."
Kathy Bates stars as Michael's tutor. In the scene I am referring to, Michael is frustrated because he can't grasp the concept Miss Sue (Kathy) is trying to teach him. Miss Sue soothes him by stating that he doesn't understand "yet."
That scene.... that line... that word... spoke volumes to me.
How many times have I gotten frustrated because I couldn't immediately grasp a concept or accomplish a task that I thought I should instantly be able to do? The word "yet" turns everything around for me.
I don't fully understand shutter speed in relation to my camera: YET.
I don't know how to change a multi-connected electrical outlet: YET.
I haven't achieved my desired weight: YET.
See what I mean? See how the "Yet" just turns the negative into a positive? See how it keeps the option to learn and improve open? See how it instantly encourages you and lifts your spirits??
To wrap up this review, if you haven't seen this movie "yet", I hope you will. I truly believe it's a movie you will be inspired by. If you can't afford to rent or buy it - check it out from your local library. That's how I got to see it!!
I was not asked to write this review nor am I being paid for it.
