Life Lessons from Movies

Changeling

In Drama, Movies on July 31, 2015 at 2:55 PM

Changeling (2008) is a drama directed by Clint Eastwood about Christine Collins (Angelina Jolie), a woman whose nine-year-old son, Walter, disappeared in 1928 Los Angeles, and who, with the help of an activist preacher, Reverend Gustav Briegleb (John Malkovich), fought against the claims of the police that they had found him.

Life Lesson:

Never start a fight, but always finish it.

Movie Scene:

Christine: “You shouldn’t have done that.”

Carol Dexter (Amy Ryan): “Wanted to. Felt good. I lost two babies to back-alley doctors. No choice. Never had the chance to fight for them. You do. Don’t stop.”

Christine: “I won’t.”

Carol: “F*** them, and the horse they rode in on.”

Christine: “That’s not exactly language for a lady.”

Carol: “Hell, there are times that’s exactly the right language to use.”
