After a long period of contemplation and disinterest, I decided to watch the movie ‘Fall From Grace’, written and directed by Tyler Perry. Well, I have seen a lot of movies (I am a movie freak), but you’ll agree with me that some movies deserve bigger accolades; one of which is ‘Fall From Grace’. So, here are some of the lessons I learnt from it:
1. Never trust anybody: Although I suspected Sarah was behind the misfortune of her best friend, Grace, a part of me still wanted to believe she was a true friend. My suspicions were confirmed and I was like ‘I knew it! I just knew it!’ Grace trusted Sarah and told her everything about her, including her deepest secrets. Sarah used those secrets against her friend and almost destryoyed her. You should never trust anyone with your deepest secrets. Have friends, have fun, but when it comes to your personal life, be careful who you trust. Remember, Grace was betrayed by her best friend, Jesus was betrayed by his disciple, Samson was betrayed by Delilah.
2. Never underrate anyone: Jasmine Bryant, one of the leading female characters was underestimated. It was shocking when she ended up victorious and vindicated Grace. Her boss, Rory had no pinch of faith in her ability. All he wanted was for her to plead for her client in court. He was suprised when she went from being ‘a lawyer who never went to court’ to being ‘a lawyer who solved a murder case and a heroine’. Even her colleagues were astonished when they saw the zealous part of her they never knew existed. Never underrate anybody; be open minded and believe in the dreams of your friends.
3. Love has two sides: From the story, it is evident that love can be beautiful, as well as sour. The love between Jasmine and her husband, Jordan Bryant was heavenly. He supported her, encouraged her, rebuked her, and saved her. He was there for her when she needed him the most. Shannon equally showed Grace love. She was divorced, and what she shared with Shannon felt like heaven to her. She trusted him, and gave all of her heart to him. In the end, we found out that his love was only a show to wreck her financially, emotionally, and psychologically, which he eventually managed to do. Anyone can show us love, but not everyone will so us true love. You have to be careful, patient, and prayerful to discern which love is true are not the end of the road. When it seemed like she had lost the case, she was shattered and lost the strength to continue. But, with the help of her husband, she managed to pick herself up and garner the courage to continue. She came out better than she was at the beginning of the movie. She learnt from her mistakes. Mistakes do not signify the end of the tunnel; they are simply a path of our success stories.
If you haven’t watched the movie, I recommend that you do. Feel free to share your thoughts on it with me.😀😀 Happy weekend!!!
