It’s a beautiful moment that nails the way movies can sometimes penetrate a desire for escapism and get at the truth of a situation, even when you don’t want them to.
Reminds me of why I love movies so much, and appreciate the power of movies such as the Matrix (pic above).
My friend and colleague Alan and I have ‘set homework’ for a leadership course Lifetree is facilitating. Unusual homework – to watch either or: The Straight Story, or Twelve Angry Men, and to come to the learning event with what struck you about either of these movies relating to their reflection on leadership and leadership acts. Be interesting to see what emerges from the dialogue.
I watched the Straight Story last weekend – such a powerful movie – and am looking forward to watching Twelve Angry Men this weekend.
Now this is my kind of homework!!
