Tip#624: Movies Inspired by Actual Events - Won’t Back Down
There are many movies based on true stories where the facts are altered to enhance the flow of the story or fit a certain screen time. Films like The King’s Speech, Argo and Titanic still have an emotional impact despite changes to the actual events. In the end I believe if a movie can inspire you to be a better person then it has achieved it’s greatest purpose.
Check out this fascinating website called Chasing the Frog that is about “chasing after the truth behind movies based on true stories”. Some films featured include The Blind Side, Erin Brockovich, The Pursuit of Happyness, Rudy, Schindler’s List and Titanic: Click here
Won't Back Down (2012)
The movie Won’t Back Down is about two determined mothers, Jamie (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Nona (Viola Davis) who aim to transform their children’s failing inner city school. The film is loosely based on events in 2010 Los Angeles where several groups of parents attempted to take over several failing public schools. Both Jamie and Nona demonstrated great passion and perseverance all for the love of their children and their future. See: movie trailer
indestructible optimism to achieve a task that seemed impossible. These challenges ended up bringing out the best in Jamie and re-ignited Nona’s passion for teaching. Their passion is also what helped attracted the individuals they needed for success!
Whether a movie is based on fact, fiction or a little of both let it inspire you to bring out your best. Let the movie heroes re-ignite your passion and increase your confidence, resilience, perseverance and optimism. Let their story help you create a more amazing life story for yourself today!
