This past weekend I watched the movie Saturday night fever with John Travolta. This movie really got me thinking because even though the movie is old, the plot and characters response to situations is the same as now a days. As I watch the movie I connected the characters to my own personal life, and my friends. watching how TONY (John Travolta) a typical teenager, with a normal family, a typical job, and a lover, has the courage to grow, to become someone, and thanks to his gift of dancing, and by approaching to (Karen Lynn Gorney) he starts his path to greatness. I can see in his eyes a vibe of ambition that I see in many teenagers I spend time with, the want to become people of greatness. In contrast, the movie shows us how other teenagers, just go through life with vanish ideas, and dreams, and I can also find that in many of the teens I relate to. For example, one of the friends of Tony, got a girl pregnant, and his friends, so selfish never gave importance to his situation, and as a results he jumps of a bridge.
I also liked the love story in the movie, for I identify with (Karen Lynn Gorney). She is the typical girl any boy cant get. She build huge columns in her life, and doesn’t let anyone enter to her heart because the suffered before, and doesn’t want to get hurt again, or even she doesn’t want to be with any one that doesn’t help her realize her dreams.
This movie got me thinking. I reflected a lot about my current life. The group of friends I have formed, how valuable and important they have become for me. For this I am really thankful. But my fear of falling in love, makes me feel confessed. Im in the point of my life were every decision will have a huge consequence in my future, and I want to have the future I have always dreamed about, I am very ambitious about what I want, so I don’t want to take incorrect decisions, thats way I don`t move. This movie got me thinking, should I take love risks, should I try out being in a relationship. Or being in a relationship prevent me from conquering my dream?
