There are two scenes from this movie that are, and will remain, favourites to me forever.
First, when Will is touched by emotional anger that Sean, the psychiatrist who was trying to treat Will, brings about when they meet the second time. In the first scene, Sean was asked to treat Will, who was a very defensive kid, and, Will, deliberately insults Sean’s wife who was dead. The monologues in this scene are very deep in meaning. Sean’s explanation of life, love, and emotions is unmatched.
Will was said by Sean “I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms “visiting hours” don’t apply to you. You don’t know about real loss, ’cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much.”
Will perhaps feels confronted, and the scene closes.
Second, it is in this scene that the girl that Will met was being so vulnerable to him coz she loves him a lot, begs him not to leave her, but he leaves. Will’s realization of life and love later is the cause for his reunion with the girl, and the movie ends in merry! 😀
When the protagonist says “been totally vulnerable”, and from the meaning that I could derive, it sounds emotionally very deep. This was perhaps experienced by the Skylar, the girl, and later by Will. This movie is one of “the best” movies in all aspects. An amazing story that tells what is Life, what is Friendship, and what is Love.
