I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.
Não ficou convecido?
Brad Dupree: My job consists of basically masking my contempt for the assholes in charge, and, at least once a day, retiring to the men’s room so I can jerk off while I fantasize about a life that doesn’t so closely resemble Hell.” Well, you have absolutely no interest in saving yourself.
Lester Burnham: Brad, for 14 years I’ve been a whore for the advertising industry. The only way I could save myself now is if I start firebombing.
Just an ordinary guy with nothing to lose, sacou?
Ah, com uma proposta dessa, até eu ia querer a Kate como esposa.
Um dos poucos passatempos na vida monótona de April e Frank era receber os amigos. E com amigos como esses…
Fiquei em dúvida se seria a Melhor Visita ou Melhor Momento Sai que eu tô sincero.
PS1: A Kate é uma das minhas atrizes favoritas. Não perco um filme dela.
PS2: Eu saí bem deprimida de Revolutionary Road (aaaah, mi mi mi. Não tem final feliz!!), mas é preciso reconhecer que a Kate April tinha os seus momentos:
If being crazy means living life as if it matters, then I don’t mind being completely insane.
PS3: A Kate casou-se em segredo com o Sam Mendes, diretor de Beleza Americana, em 2003. Depois do sucesso de Revolutionary Road, ele voltou para o teatro, dirigindo Ethan Hawke, em Londres. Jude Law, como Hamlet, também em Londres, arrancou mais elogios e aplausos.
