Nolan’s greatest masterpiece. The story is told backwards, which makes you think as every new scene unfolds. You do not leave your brain at the door for this one! Guy Pearce is exceptional as the man with memory issues searching for his wife’s killer. This film is the ultimate mind bend.
Leonard Shelby is focused on his goal. He might forget things, but never his ultimate target. Since every moment is new to him, Leonard possesses a child-like innocence.
Who is Leonard?
Her goal was published author and she never wavered on that path, achieving it this past February. Charity also possesses that innocence, and it comes through in her smile and her Faith. Her passions shine, no matter what she is doing.
Charity is the author of The Magic Wakes and a devoted mother and wife.
To you I dedicate Meant to Live by Switchfoot. (Song title leads to YouTube.)
“We were meant to live for so much more… And everything inside screams for second life…” I will see that second life, Charity!
Trivia and Facts:
