Gone with the Wind

Hope.

Hope!
Hope?

I've seen Gone with the Wind a couple of days ago and I loved it! I've read the novel in Arabic, I thought it was ok. Nothing grand, and very very gloomy, too gloomy for my taste. Yet, the movie was captivating. I didn't think I would like such a movie, very old and classic. Classic movies aren't my thing, yet everything was perfect. When she would cry, laugh, get teased, be filled with despair. Simply brilliant!!

It remained somewhat gloomy, yet they managed to get me hoping for a better and happier ending. (Yes. I am a hopeless romantic.) I loved it!!!! How it filled me with hope.

"And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day." Can you think of a better way to end a movie? (Sorry if this is a spoiler for anyone who wants to watch it, but its too beautiful a line for me to refrain from quoting it)

My cousin was fascinated with that movie, we watched it together when I was like 12 or 13.. I thought it was TOO long :P But hey, it's a classic, and it's indeed captivating!
