There was a man locked deep in a dungeon for half his lifetime. He finally decided to free himself or be killed in the process. He made plans to jump his jailer when he brought his food the next day. While laying out his plans he turned the handle of his cell door only to find it was not locked.
Upon making this discovery he fled the unguarded prison, returned to his home and lived happily ever after.
The message is that we all tend to lock ourselves up with exaggerated anxiety. If we do not have the courage to try the door, we will remain forever in our own personal prisons. That is why this BLOG is called "Rhonda's Escape".
Rhonda, excellent review. I started crying somewhere in the first 30 minutes of the movie and quit crying completely something like 24 hours later. Since I am just beginning transition, I saw so much of myself in Lili. Strangely, the least emotional of the three of us that went to see it together was my wife. Our normally stoic lesbian feminist friend stuck her hand out to me during the movie and said, "Got any tissues left?" Take more than a tissue or two. Take a whole one of the small pocket packs.ReplyDelete
