FMM: If life were a movie, which one would you want to live in?
At first I tried to think of my favorite movies…
My all-time favorite movie is The Godfather II. For several reasons. First, there’s the most obvious, that I’m 100% Italian, 50% of which is Sicilian. So much of this movie is steeped in culture and heritage – loyalty, family, pride. All of the things I grew up with. But it also has way too much violence for me to want to spend my life in this movie, even if I could be Michael.
Then I tried to think of my favorite movies from high school..something directed by John Hughes:
Breakfast Club is the quintessential movie that depicts the fact that despite the fact that we can each be a member of a certain clique, we have more in common that we might first think. And Pretty in Pink is the girl-power movie for any girl who had a bit of a quirky side. I LOVE Duckie (Jon Cryer) and Iona (Annie Potts) in this movie. And I wanted Andie’s (Molly Ringwald) car – a Karmann Ghia. I even had a vanity plate all figured out: GhiaMia. :)
But neither of those movies were ones that I really wanted to LIVE in. So I gave it a bit more thought and then it HIT me…
