We finished watching this movie
about an hour ago.
I cried.
I sat there and asked questions.
Told my parents what I thought.
I went into the bathroom
and cried some more.
The movie hit me
in so many different ways.
The Carpe Diem “Sieze the Day”
hit me.
Live your life.
But most of all,
the idea of being trapped
hit me hard.
It’s the same feeling I got
when I watched The Truman Show.
The same feeling I got
when reading Rebecca over the summer.
The feeling of being controlled.
I’ve never been controlled or trapped,
and I never want to feel it.
This has always been a toughy
for me.
One of my great friends
told me the hardest parts
of her life.
It all had to do with being controlled.
Thinking about her
and her life
makes me depressed.
I have another friend
that is trapped.
A lot more trapped than
my other friend.
She comes to school,
puts a smile on,
and pretends like her life
is as wonderful and free
as others.

To anyone who feels that
their life
is being controlled:
You are not trapped.
There is always a way out.

This is now one of the greatest
I’ve ever seen in my life.
I absolutely love it.
Go see it if you haven’t.

Carpe Diem!


  1. I’ve seen it. I wanted to cry so bad, but everyone in my class wasn’t. So I held back those tears. Though some leaked through.
    I’ve felt trapped. Actually I feel somewhat trapped right now. No where to go, no one to realy see yet. Nothing but my house, and to be with my parents when we go somewhere.

  2. I hated THE TRUMAN SHOW. Sometime I’ll tell you that story.

  3. It is one of my favorites too!

  4. Anne, the look of your new blog is sensational and I love the “about me” section. Wow!

  5. This is one of the coolest movies ever. I love it. My dad loves it too, so I’ve sorta grown up with it. It’s one of those movies that really makes you think. That’s why I like it. It’s confusing, but at the end a really great message is revealed.
