Life Lessons from Movies

Peggy Sue Got Married

Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) is a fantasy directed by Francis Ford Coppola about a middle-aged housewife, Peggy Sue (Kathleen Turner), who is facing a divorce from her husband Charlie (Nicolas Cage), but gets a chance to relive her past and change it.

Life Lesson:

There is no point in feeling regret about your past. If you had a chance to go back in time, you would probably make the same choices again. If you changed your past, you may not have the great things you have now.

Movie Scene:

Charlie: “Here. It’s a birthday present …  It opens, too. Look inside.”

Peggy Sue, while opening a heart-shaped locket: “Scott and Beth. Where did you get this?”

Charlie: “Who are Scott and Beth? Your mother gave me those. It’s you and me. You know that.”

[Peggy Sue realizes that without Charlie she would not have her children, Scott and Beth.]
