A powerful scene from a powerful film: Meryl Streep and Ed Harris in The Hours (Stephen Daldry. 2002)
Dexter: "I want to someday be content, just to feel… comfortable, like everyone else. I want…"
Rita: "A normal life."
Dexter: "Yeah, a normal life."
Rita: "That’s all I want. Just that."

Soul, if you want to learn secrets,
your heart must forget about shame
You are God’s lover,
yet you worry what people are saying.

“There’s a terrible sadness. The last day of shooting is surreal. Your mind, your body, your spirit are not in any way prepared to accept that this experience is coming to an end. In the months that follow the finish of a film, you feel profound emptiness. You’ve devoted so much of your time to unleashing, in an unconscious way, some sort of spiritual turmoil, and even if it’s uncomfortable, no part of you wishes to leave that character behind. The sense of bereavement is such that it can take years before you can put it to rest.” -Daniel Day-Lewis
