Movies can teach us as much about life as life itself because at the end of the day movies are nothing but someone’s life — fictional or otherwise — shown on-screen. And movies do have a lot to offer – a narration that can leave us in a state where we are all charged up to get back on track. Here are some of the best films that carry strong life lessons and some takeaways. Read on:
1. The Shawshank Redemption
Andy Dufresne (played by Tim Robbins) a young investment banker faces life imprisonment for the murder of his wife and her lover. It is about a bond of friendship between Red (played by Morgan Freeman) inside a prison. A story line spread over 40 years revolves around hope.
Life Lesson: Do not let those who love you, drift away from you. And never let your hope die. As long as hope lives inside you, it will keep you inspired to live.
Andy Dufresne: “She was beautiful. God I loved her. I just didn’t know how to show it, that’s all. I killed her, Red. I didn’t pull the trigger, but I drove her away. And that’s why she died, because of me.”
