Life Lessons from Movies

Mulan

In Fantasy, Movies on December 31, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Mulan (1998) is an animated fantasy co-directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook about Fa Mulan (Ming-Na Wen), a woman who enlists in the Chinese army, accompanied by a small dragon, Mushu (Eddie Murphy), and a cricket, to take the place of her injured father.

Life Lesson:

Don’t let social conventions limit your potential.

Movie Scene:

Mulan: “I should never have left home.”

Mushu: “Hey, come on. You went to save your father’s life. Who knew you’d end up shaming him and disgracing your ancestors, and losing all your friends? You know, you just gotta, gotta learn to let these things go.”

Mulan: “Maybe I didn’t go for my father. Maybe what I really wanted was to prove I could do things right, so when I looked in the mirror, I’d see someone worthwhile.”

I have recently started a movie review blog and all of the ones I have found in my research involve in depth reviews, It’s nice to see something a bit different.
