Jane Got a Gun REVIEW
Damned Civil War! I wonder how many romances were wrecked in its catastrophic aftermath?
I am going to let this film speak for itself if you watch it - because I can’t really talk about it without just plot-telling and making connections too personal for a blog post but … I liked this one line where Natalie Portman’s character, Jane Hammond, tells her former fiancé’ Dan Frost,
“You might want to see a day where the sun don’t shine on your story. Cause there is a whole world out there of other people’s tales, if you just care and listen.”
It is just so true that so many of us go through life with the “sun shining on our story.” Where we act as though our story was the story and can’t even see the existence of others.
Poor Dan. “A man losses purposes that’s when a man dies,” he says. Aint that the truth?
Question for Comment: If you could get the chance to shine sunlight on someone else’s story who has crossed paths with you in life, whose story would you chose to know more about? In other words, who is someone you would like to explain to you an act that impacted you deeply and that you are still only guessing the reasons for?
