So I am going to start a thing where I post a random scene from a more obscure title that resonated with me and stood out amongst the others in the film. We all know the classics and their famous scenes but by doing a more obscure, lesser known movie, it will hopefully show something that some of you guys haven’t seen before. I’ll do it every Wednesday. So for today, the scene I have chosen is from the film “Not Waving but Drowning.” It is a little indie movie, one that didn’t even show in theaters or sell on dvd, but I happened to be surfing Netflix last month in search of a film and I came across this one. It is one of those random little films that seem like they are probably gonna be film school quality but this one was actually very good. I’ll do a full review on it later but for now here is a scene that really resonated. Perhaps it is because I’m a nostalgic person and soon I’ll be experiencing huge changes in my life as I move into adulthood. The cinematography of this scene is beautiful and goes well with the music and the quote recited. It all just gelled nicely. especially liked it because of the Marie Antoinette quote used. Enjoy!

I'm from Florida, a junior at the University of Central Florida. Currently, I'm a political science-IR major. I'm a Thespian, avid traveler and explorer of all things worth exploring. Hoarder of books and movies, and caretaker to my beloved camera and piano. I think conformity and math are terrible, but vegetarianism and nature conservation are awesome. Traveling is also a huge passion of mine, I thank my parents for that, as they have taken my 2 sisters and I around the world. I have been to South Africa, multiple places in Europe, Turkey and Canada, as well as other states in the U.S. I have a variety of interests from photography to theatre to the great outdoors. Growing up, I always felt an urge to get out in the world, explore and be actively involved in efforts dedicated to making changes in the world, impacting something or someone in a inspirational and positive way. It's important to notice what is happening in the world, to fight for what is good and what is right. As someone who is diagnosed with clinical depression and ADHD, I am an advocate for mental health education and thus one of the cornerstones for the foundation of this blog was writing to inspire others;to say, whether it's through a review or a poem, that the human experience is a hard one but worthwhile. This blog covers entertainment, travel, current events and personal pieces as well. Thanks for stopping by! :)
