Castaway Movie - touched my heart

In the last weekend (5-6 June 2010), I got the DVD of the movie Castaway from Ossining Library. This is the first movie CD I ever got from here. Though there is huge collection of movies, so far I'd only taken books, but this visit, something moved me to atleast select one for a try...and boy sure I made a nice choice :-)

Castaway didn't seemed like yet another Hollywood movie. To me it seemed a perfect combination of a nice script, fine actor, excellent film-making team- right from movie locale till the words of every dialogue, this movie is one of a kind. Never miss this movie if you've a chance to see.

I was really moved by all characters - including dearest Wilson and the island. Tom Hanks gives his undoubtedly best performance - a fine actor of our times.

The storyline is not only one of survival when lost in an unknown island cut-off from the world but also one of clearing our views/biases and bring out the real perspective of what we can learn from life - from each moment we live on taking it for granted and the value of relationships over mundane successes in life - through career or business.

I've now started looking back to browse through English movies rather than just reading books and I thank this movie for making this change.

Next time when someone talks to me about movies, sure, I'll recommend this one and I'll feel glad that I did it :-)
