Domestic violence awareness month

There’s a great movie that I discovered by accident. “An Unfinished Life” Click here and you can read a review and see the lineup of stars. It has domestic violence as a main theme but its not focused on it directly.

I am putting this movie on my “to buy” list. There is accountability and forgiveness mixed with the reality of humanity and how we live our lives. ( I’m being vague because I don’t want to spoil the movie.) Sometimes we think we are isolated, living by ourselves. But really, even when we separate ourselves from others, there is an impact on others. When we realize how connected we are, we must act on behalf of others not just ourselves. And, then there’s a part of the movie that says, in effect, sometimes stuff just happens. And we still have to figure out how to live anyway.

Best lines from the part where acting on behalf of others is very clear:
“I see you back here again. I’ll kill you.”
“You’ve seen too many westerns old man.”
“That doesn’t exactly work in your favor does it?”
