Serendipity...

...Means a "happy accident" or "pleasant surprise"; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful without looking for it. Ever seen the film?! It was a firm favourite of mine for some time, one watched over and over, often in the same day (i am renowned for doing this!) The theme typical of an American love story, boy meets girl, boy loses girl...what happens in the end??! Yes, of course, boy ALWAYS gets the girl. Happy endings are notorious on the big screen. I think i used to believe i was in these films, life seemed better there. Easier somehow. But then there comes the stark realization that of course it was just a film and in order to live ife in that way you had to make your own film so to speak. Your life had to become your own doing. Pretty obvious??! To some maybe, but not necessarily so easy!

The film tells the story of a man and a woman. Chance meeting in New York. Then again, and again. She is a firm believer in destiny. If it's mean't to be then it will be. Something i am learning to live my life by. She therefore writes her name and number in a book and sells it. He writes his on a dollar bill and buys something to set it on its journey. Years later they try to intervene with fate, something that legend says will never work in your favour! (Ever seen Final Destaination??! Scarred me for life!) Neither has any luck and both decide that somethings are best left...but then on the plane home to her fiancee she sees the fateful note passed to another passenger. The rest is of course history. No signs. No interventions. Just destiny.

This film can restore faith in a big way, or will just give you a couple of hours out of reality. Either way you won't be disappointed! Even if it's just to watch John Cusack and Aiden from SATC for a shortwhile!!!!!

Ahhh we can but dream...Xxx
