Today’s prompt for the Blog Everyday in May Challenge couldn’t be any more perfect in terms of where I’m at, at this point – getting real. More specifically, Jenni asks to share something that you’re struggling with right now. That’s easy to do, given the fact that I’ve skipped nearly one week’s worth of daily blogging this month.
What’s a gal to do about it? Make it up!
So, the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme is based on my plan to play catch-up over the next several days by possibly doubling up on some of Jenni’s prompts: Reconciliation.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring people who make attempts to reconcile something that once went well before going awry. This could involve platonic relationships, crime investigations, public and/or personal reputations, etc. so long as there is an attempt to mend that thing. Here are my selections for this week’s Reconciliation theme.*
On the Waterfront
Expect to be harassed, lose loved ones to violence, receive threats and get beat up if you choose to help dismantle the corruption plaguing your entire town, while standing up for your freedom of equal opportunities, in addition to better working conditions. Honesty and courage might get you in trouble and cause you to lose some friends but will eventually work out in your favor, earning you much respect.
Nothing else says “let me make it up to you” like planting a surprise in the garden tended to by the very person your friends are trying to kill.
What’s Love Got to Do with It?
Want to know what the proper etiquette is for damage control after beating up your wife during a pool party? Just offer her some bedside flowers in hopes that she awakes in pure joy – despite having a bloody nose and swollen facial bruises. Yeah, one dozen roses (or were they carnations? I forget) will surely help smooth things over!
What movies can YOU think of that feature some form of reconciliation – or at least an attempt to reconcile?
*The descriptions of my last two selections are obviously sarcastic.
