FILM CAN IMPACT LIFE
I am on Twitter and Tom Cruise has a channel there on which he invited all to write on
how a particular film changed your life. I had posted this about SOMEWHERE IN TIME.
His commentary on itis posted below..HJS
A movie that changed my life is SOMEWHERE IN TIME. This film is a beautiful presentation
of passion which simply transcends all the barriers of time. It shows us how a modern
man knew from a glance at an old photo that the woman in it was looking at him and
adoringly calling to him to, “return to her. The music is astoundingly gorgeous. The
chemistry between the late Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour simply pops off
the celluloid. It is no coincidence that those involved in producing this picture came
together to create it, for this was meant to be. I am ever hopeful as Reeve’s character
is and just as crushed each and every time he finds that penny in his pocket, which
hurtles him back to the future and away from his love.
I know now and derived from this film that all the great loves of our lives surround us
beyond our lifetimes. They are present in every moment, even before you discover them.
Learning that some things are meant to be removed my fears and opened me to my belief
in the afterlife. Many will scoff and bristle even at the use of the term, “afterlife.” I used
to. However, I no longer subscribe to or simply chalk signs up to coincidence. I am more
attuned and I realize that the people who love you are always “somewhere in time”
surrounding us.Tom Cruise commentary:
Harriette, those were beautifully written insights on 'Somewhere in Time.'
The power of movies to impact people cannot be denied! Thank you
so much for your comment. -www.TomCruise.com
