Two strangers,Nick Vaughan, a musician and Brooke Dalton, a young wife happen to meet at the Grand Central in New York and they end up spending an unexpected night together.
The movie revolves around their unexpected life changing, adventurous encounter that forces them to take control over their lives and stop running.
There are moments in the movie that make you realise that life is uncertain and not everything goes as planned.
Small decisions in life are actually big decisions and can actually make a difference.
And the movie clearly shows that we can’t change what is meant to be. We can’t undo our mistakes but we can caution our future selves.
And we might wait for someone for forever but we can’t make them choose us. Perhaps we can always walk away once we know they are not meant for us (Nick’s story definitely makes us sad)
I loved that the movie brings out the purity of love. That forgiveness and second chances can be given to the person we love. Only if he deserves. Brooke found her husband cheating on her. (No spoilers) Later he found his way back. Although it was too late.
A few scenes leave you numb-
Brooke Dalton: What if he loves her more?
Nick Vaughan: I’d say that’s a long shot.
Brooke Dalton: It’s possible isn’t it? It’s possible that you could meet somebody who’s perfect for you even though you’re committed to somebody else.
Nick Vaughan: I think if you are committed to somebody, you don’t allow yourself to find perfection in someone else.
Brooke showed that once you are replaced or cheated , you start to hate yourself for not being good enough. You doubt yourself and ironically a stranger comforts her.
This movie also teaches to follow your passion for yourself and not give up for any reason. Do what you love. Life doesn’t stop because of that one person. It shows that you can love more than one person in this life.
It’s true that one of the worst nights of your life can also be one of the best.
This movie has an unpredictable end and leaves us with open possibilities.
I loved the characters and also the humour.
