Well this week my movie viewing went much better. I didn’t faint like last week. I watched The Giver. I walked in late so I missed the first 10 minutes. It’s about a utopian society that has sterilized the people from all that makes them human. I thought the characters would be even more robotic. The still seemed to have emotions. I enjoyed this movie. It was very good, but I didn’t read the book. My son said he did and he felt I would like the movie. But movies are merely a snapshot of what is in a book. And they can’t tell you what goes on in a character’s head as much as a book.
It’s was quite funny to hear them say: “Precision of language”! When the receiver said, “Father do you love me?” The mother said, “Precision of language!” As if the son has said some offensive cuss word. This is a very important question…love.
For without love we are nothing. And our lives are only noise.
