Looking for something to do together as a family, we went to see Tomorrowland. It was a toss up between that and Pitch Perfect2.
While far from the best movie I’ve ever seen, it’s an interesting piece on several levels. In a nutshell, it’s a story about what it would take to break out of the dystopian miasma that the world has seemingly fallen in love with for a better world, literally.
This guy has written a post that sums up the exact conversation I’ve been having with people for the past year. Depressingly, I’ve found it’s a surefire way to make people’s eyes glaze over.
But maybe there’s a glimmer of hope… Cait, an avid reader of dystopian best sellers, came out of the movie expressing that she found it very inspiring! She even said she’s ready to swear off the steady post-apocalyptic/super hero crap the under 25 demographic is spoon fed (sorry–that’s how I feel…) in favor of more optimistic studies on the future.
Score one for holding out hope for the future!
