The Great Gatsby and Life Itself
I recently realized Gatsby and Life Itself (the trailer, actually) had something in common. The two movies had scenes where the men in the movies had to make choices… big decisions that will change their lives forever. Check out the dialogues from the scenes on the next few paragraphs:
Life Itself (Trailer)
She: Are you gonna ever ask me out, Will?
Him: I’m just waiting for the right moment. Because when I ask you out there’s not gonna be any turning back for me
The Great Gatsby (Movie)
Gatsby: I knew that when I kiss this girl, I would be forever wed to her. So I stopped… I stopped and I waited for a moment longer…
Nick (Narrating): He knew his mind will never again be free to romp like the mind of God… that falling in love will change his destiny forever
Gatsby: … then I just let myself go.
So, why am I making this post? Well, I’m at this stage in my life where I have to make a similar decision but I’m just carefully observing… because I know that If I do this, there will be no turning back for me…
