Life Lessons from Movies

Kinky Boots

Kinky Boots (2005) is a comedy directed by Julian Jarrold about Charlie Price (Joel Edgerton), a man who inherits his father’s failing shoe factory and decides to save it by finding a niche market with the help of Lola/Simon (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a drag queen.

Life Lesson:

Accept others for who they are, even if you don’t understand them.

Movie Scene:

Don (a factory worker who’s just won an arm-wrestling match against Lola): Why’d you stop?

Lola: “Well, I wouldn’t want you to walk into the factory and feel that people didn’t respect you, Don. I wouldn’t want anyone else to know what that feels like… Change your mind about someone.”
