Movies with meaning 3

{a weekly series – welcome guest contributions such as “Movies with Meaning 2“, a guest contribution from a twitter conversation with my friend Jacob Aldridge. This week some other contributors from Twitter too. Do share your ideas and share on twitter too}

A reminder of our format  :

  • Three movies with meaning
  • One sentence on the core meaning you take from it
  • Send me a link to a YouTube clip from the movie that speaks to that meaning

WARNING : Many of these include spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the movies…

So, here we go for this week :

Interstellar (2014)

“about time and making the most of it” ~ anonymous

After Cooper wastes a few short hours on a watery planet with an immense gravitational field, the relativity of time means he has lost decades. He gets back to the spacecraft and feels the enormity of losing 23 years as he watches the messages from his family.

Make the most of our time. Never settle.


To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) :

 @MickPuck : “racism is s***e”

The movie of the book every child in Britain read at school in my era. Beautifully concise meaning in the movie from one of my musical heroes


Horton hears a Who (2008) :

@MarlaDukharan : “vested interests & deeply entrenched norms/ societal structures can only temporarily stall genuine progress. Small is still important!”

{Tom : “a person’s a person, no matter how small” Equality respects differences. }
