30 Days of James McAvoy
Day Eleven → Your favourite quote from a movie.
❝ I admit it. I’d made some mistakes. Okay, some big mistakes. Loads of them. But you can’t hide in your room forever feeling sorry for yourself. It’s not practical. At some point, you’ve got to get back out there, face up to things, and confront your demons. Ever since I can remember, I’d wanted to be clever. Some people are born clever, same way some people are born beautiful. I’m not one of those people. I’m going to have to work at it, put in the effort, and if I mess it up, I’ll learn from it. Besides, sometimes it’s not about knowing the right answer. Sometimes it’s about asking the right questions. ❞
I sympathise with the character of Brian immensely. He’s just a normal, slightly nerdy guy trying to stand out in a sea of average people. He wants to be something more than he is, but he messes up along the way. It’s a beautiful story and Brian’s a beautifully crafted character. This quotation comes from the end of the film when he’s realised that he can’t hide from the mistakes he made and that his life has to continue. I just love it.
