I’m fairly easily inspired. People amaze me. (Well, in both ways, but let’s focus on the positive.)
A cold Memorial Day Weekend is the perfect setting for me to catch up from my travels, do tons of laundry and let Redbox play in the background.
I don’t know why I didn’t have high expectations for Les Miserables… I guess it just looked depressing. But it’s not. Well, not if you dig deeper to be inspired by the strength of the human spirit. Then- it’s incredible. And inspiring. And I was almost too mesmerized to fold clothes.
So on a macro level, the sheer genius of human creativity in making this movie blows me away. And the performances?! You can’t fake that. You really have to feel it. And I did. ALL heart.
Then there were so many individual stories all perfectly intertwined and all appealing to the part of me that has felt that before.
It wasn’t just romantic love. She loves him and he loves another… There is also family love, both by blood and by honor.
And self love, and love of country… and God’s love. I mean… this is powerful stuff. I could go on, but you really should experience it for yourself. Les Miserable is a “must watch” movie and I highly recommend it. Just don’t forget the Kleenex.
