A Movie I Starred In

Night Train To Lisbon:  Your Life Can Change In An Instant

The movie opens with what seems like me in my study and continues to a scene on the bridge where I rescue a woman trying to commit suicide.  Again, I remember this happening in my own life.  But he is not me and the suicide attempt is not the same.  But again, he is teaching a class in philosophy, a stoic way of being.  Again, I can relate to this on a deep level.

The book is an important element in the plot because the main character wants to feel what it is like to be the author.  This sense is interesting to me as a writer.  Then the movie begins to take on a life of it’s own.  And, yet again, I am hooked on the ideas that are expressed in the story.  I loved the acting in this movie.  Jeremy Irons does a commendable job.  Of course, the ending is great.  If you like to suspend your sense of self and loose yourself in a movie, let it happen in this one.  I promise you won’t regret it.
