I also see old photos from my childhood that sometimes releases a flood of memories. Sometimes it leaves me in awe when I realize that several decades had somehow passed by in a blink of an eye. These annual vacations give me the opportunity to reminisce about the past and then plan for the New Year when I return home in Canada.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood (2019)
The comedy drama film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, is about faded television actor Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) and actress Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) during the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles. This richly atmospheric film reimagines some history while delivering so many memorable scenes, historical locations and colourful characters of this Hollywood era.

There were also some unexpected life lessons I resonated with with Dalton and the pain and fears he had about his career and being a washed up actor. He had some emotional moments as well as some powerful scenes finding new life for his self-confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. Meanwhile Booth, his stunt double, also shows how his special skills were useful in unexpected, threatening life situations. Their support and mutual friendship for each other over many years was also inspiring to watch.
Movies can invoke feel good nostalgic memories while, at the same time, can have us reflect on our lives, careers and our own skills and talents. They can inspire us with examples of life-long friendships and examples of resilience when faced with life or career crisis. Find a film today to inspire you to re-energize and move forward with confidence in your own life!
