Since I have a review lined up for Saturday, I decided to swap my schedule around a bit and bring you the Quote of the Week a little early.
“For someone who was never meant for this world, I must confess I’m suddenly having a hard time leaving it. Of course, they say every atom in our bodies was once part of a star. Maybe I’m not leaving… maybe I’m going home”
Vincent Freeman from the film, ‘Gattaca’
This is said in the last scene of the film and has stuck with me for more than ten years since I first watched the movie. I’ve always been fascinated by the stars and space. I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up, but was never going to be tall enough for NASA standards, hence my profound understanding of Vincent Freeman and his desperation to get into the space program despite his inadequate genes. At least I get to live vicariously through films like this one. And perhaps one day I’ll be able to afford a trip to the Space Station.
Have you got a favourite movie quote?
