《Wonder》——Love, acceptance and courage
This is a story about love, acceptance and courage. Warm and cruel, realistic and idealized.
August is a deformed child. He looks like a monster. But he still survived and grew up under the care of his parents and sister. However, life always going with hurt. At the age of ten, his mother persuaded his father to let him go to school. After entering the school, August experienced some unhappy tricks from a rich kid who named Julian and received unintentional injuries from the upright boy Jack... These things are unbearable but not fatal. Because the more significant is that he has gained true friendship. The little girl Summer give her kindness to him, Jack sincerely apologies ... These finally let August finally learn to grow, and finally all the kids completed their own difficult growth.
Although this is a children-literary movie, the feeling we could receive is prefound. We also hope that the world is full of love, but there is no stranger giving you love without any repay. You should learn one thing——Others refuse giving you good intentions does not mean that they are errant. You should not be hostile to the world. As Locke said, “There are many hardships in life, so we must not be too sensitive to every slight injury. In the face of hardships in life, mental strength and indifference are our best weapons for resisting evil and accidents in life." When we face the hurt from people, we need to learn to accept it just as we accept the good from others. What we need is “conversion”. We must learn to filter the damage and accumulate warmth. Of course it needs courage, and you have to know that this is a long-term issue. You can only stand up and not be overwhelmed by those who are malicious, it is possible to meet love and kindness if you have enough willpower. This long suffering may be like Samuel Johnson said "human courage can bear all the burden; human patience can endure most of the pain."
Therefore, learn to love, first learn to accept and take courage.
