The Mouth of Truth
In an effort to fill in some glaring holes in my movie watching Becky decided it was time for me to see "Roman Holiday". I won't bore you with the details of the movie but I will share how it sat with me.
The movie has to be popular as everyone can identify with some element of it. Two people from different worlds intersect lying about their real stations in life and in the end realizing they are from different worlds; getting hurt; and moving on.
I like the way the movie ended with both of them moving on with their own lives and responsibilities. I mean, how else would it turn out? The princess marries the American reporter? To me it is a model of a valid happy ending.
I wish I had seen this movie a few years earlier.
