One of my favorite topics… movies! I love movies, and Vicki asked,
What is your favorite movie?
That’s an easy question. Hands down, I have one favorite movie. You’ve probably never heard of it.
It came out my freshman year of college and my best friend and I went to see it together. We’d only met a couple times at that point and we have some very entertaining stories around that movie. I’m fairly sure Sliding Doors is one of the reasons we became best friends.
But anyway… the movie is an indie Gwyneth Paltrow film about a woman who gets fired and on the way home her life splits into two different scenarios, divided by a pair of… Sliding Doors. In one story, she catches the train. In the other, she misses it.
It’s the ultimate question we all ask…
What I loved about the movie is that it gave me hope. It made me believe that no matter what if, everything works out in the end exactly the way it was supposed to. I love movies that make me feel that way.
Whenever I have a bad day, or am in a funk, or just want to smile, I watch Sliding Doors. It’s my go-to movie when I need a pick me up.
But, when you find it on Netflix and watch it, I’m warning you… There will be a moment in the movie where you’ll want to yell, just like my best friend did in a theater full of people, “This movie sucks!” But stick with it. I promise, you won’t regret it.
