movie: Mona Lisa Smile
starring: Julia Roberts, Ginnifer Goodwin
plot: Follows the lives of a female art professor and her students at an all girls college in the 1950's, and how they each deal with the conservative issues of the time.
This is a film that asks what would you do if you're life ended up being less then you expected?
It's almost a foreshadow for Roberts as it gives many of the similar questions as Eat Pray Love.
The art almost becomes a character in itself, and forces the characters to reevaluate their personal views on how they are living their lives. And what they are willing to put up with from their families.
The romantic issues that all the characters go through, from the free giving characters to the traditional married ones, to the almost nun like character; in the end are all how the women deal with their fears. One of the teachers fears being alone and heartbroken to the point of hiding where as another character fears the rejection and what people will think of her to the point of belittling a classmate.
what do i think i learned from this film?
Are you living your life for you, or are you living the life everyone expects you to be?
