falling at your feet

i needed an escape, so i went to the mayfair to see mystic river and master and commander.

i read mystic river when i first came to school. it's a story about life, probably one of the better ones i've read. things happen to people in that book that are so unfair, so cruel. most of these things happen because of the actions of another human. jimmy's daughter is killed by two young men. dave has psychological problems because he was abducted and molested as a child. and sean's life is falling apart because his wife simply disappeared.

somehow though, everyone pulls through in their own way. except dave. although you could qualify his ending as an escape of sorts. it's not what i would choose, that's for sure.

my escape involves coconuts. lots of coconuts.
