Adaptation

Dear Mama,

Tadi malam akhirnya aku menghabiskan film ‘Adaptation’! Setelah lama terkubur di dalam laptopku, akhirnya, tadi malam, tuntas. I am so happy since the movie was so brilliant.

Well, its casts are Nicolas Cage, Tilda Swinton and Meryl Streep. We can predict how good the movie is, can’t we?

Aku tak mau menceritakan filmnya padamu, Ma. Aku tau, kau tak pernah suka jika aku atau Bapak spending our time by watching movies. But, we always find a way to make you depressed. Hahaha, joke.

I do love its script! Here are its quotes. Damn, I just love them.

Adaptation is a profound process. It means you figure out how to thrive in the world.

Yeah, but it’s easier for plants. I mean they have no memory. You know, they just move on to whatever’s next. But a person, now adapting’s almost shameful. I mean, it’s like running away.

Donald:
I loved Sarah, Charles. It was mine, that’s love. I owned it. Even Sarah didn’t have the right to take it away. I can love whoever I want.
Charles:
But she thought you were pathetic.
Donald :
That was her business, not mine.

Ma, mungkin aku sama dengan Charles, yang tiba-tiba tersadar bahwa, mencintai itu hak siapa saja. Bahkan orang yang kita cinta tak bisa melarang kita. Dan sungguh, apa yang salah dengan cinta? Justru, bukankah karena itu peradaban dunia tercipta?
