Sometimes the people we meet change us forever.
I cannot imagine anything that would be more fun than taking a road-trip with Sarah Lewis (Sandra Bullock). That is why I really think this film is worth watching. Ben Holmes (Ben Affleck) got something that very few of us ever get to experience – a couple of days with someone who will truly liberate us from our staid conventions and open our eyes to a world that we never knew even existed.
Working with the developmentally disabled, I have to constantly remember that I cannot say they don’t want to live or work or do something until I have exposed them to that opportunity and let them make an informed choice.
How many times have we made choices without knowing all the opens – or even that there are options. Ben got the opportunity to make an informed choice. I am not saying I would have made his choice, but he knew what he was doing.
Don’t watch this movie looking for a comedy, even though it is funny; don’t watch it looking for romance, even though there is plenty to see; but watch it to open your eyes to another world and ask yourself if your world is really what you want.
This movie is so quirky and offbeat that it’s really good!
I don’t know why many people diss this movie because it’s actually really good. Who better to have than Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock? They are perfect in their roles as “Ben” and “Sarah”. But I have to say if Sandra Bullock wasn’t in this movie, it wouldn’t be as enjoyable as it is. There are a lot of laughs but not so much that it goes over the top and there is a lot of drama in it too. It’s a perfect mix. The camera angles make this movie very unique too.
So the next time you’re in blockbuster and you’re contemplating on what to rent, you should rent “Forces of Nature” because it’s the kind of film that will literally make you smile the whole way through.
