The English Teacher
TThe English Teacher is an english movie. But this is not a movie review. You will not read about the plot, characters or the cast of the movie. The only thing thing that this short piece will focus on is the singleton concept mentioned in this movie that allayed my fear of writing and motivated me to write this.
The end of anything is fixed they say. “Change the endings” is what this movie dared to say. This movie deals with this brave concept by trying to change a dark sad ending of a play written by a high school alumnus as it was being produced by the high school theatre group to be performed in front of high school kids and their parents. The school board could not risk such a dark ending to be played. The english teacher tried to change the endings of the play and in the process motivates self to change the presumed endings of her life as well.
I don’t have a clear picture of my endings in front of my eyes but I do fear that my life ahead is set on the path of mediocrity. I do not have the will to pursue what i believe. I feel like a toy that gets played at the hands of other people. Life seems an endless tiring routine among strangers. I have nothing to aspire to anymore. The abysmal depth to which i have buried my desires is unthinkable.And hence the ending I foresee for myself couldn’t be any different. I lack the strength and dedication to change it. The english teacher could not have done it either but she took a first step.
This is my first step.
