When I was a sophomore in college I took an American Literature course in the winter that met every Tuesday. The class was mandatory, thus you had to go no matter what. Well Valentines day landed on a Tuesday that year, I didn’t really care because I would have gone to class regardless…. I am not entirely the biggest fan of the day even though I have had valentines the majority of my adult life somehow. Well, the professor knew people in class would have plans set up with significant others, but the class must go on! So she assigned everyone to bring in a clip from a film that expressed what you thought love really was, additionally she allowed for everyone to bring a date to class that night. I didn’t think about it then but this idea was pure genius. Being a female I of course know the run down of a romantic comedy, I figured most people would just look at anything in their Drew Barrymore arsenal, so I took it in a different direction. I chose this scene from the movie Good Will Hunting, why? Well because I believe it is the most beautiful display of love in cinematic history, well to me that is. The scene it self doesn’t involve some silly speech to the woman you love, making out hardcore, an aww OMG Ryan Gosling notebook crap moment, but the expression how much it really means to love someone. The movie isn’t exactly a romance, it is a movie about the human spirit and the struggles that people face when finding themselves, and well if this scene isn’t about finding love and what that really means… then I don’t know what is. My professor and the class ended up agreeing, I was then followed by the scene from Pretty Woman where Richard Gere shows up to Julia roberts apartment and scales the stairs to tell her how he really feels. Another feel good logical movie moment.
