As You Watch
Click here to review our March forecast, then consider the following as you watch this month’s selection.
- Watch for the various avenues people used to liberate themselves: Quoyle new skills, Agnis a plan for closure, Wavey acceptance of goodwill from others—and how several characters drew careful decisions about what to embrace and what to reject with regard to tradition and family history.
- Observe how Quoyle, Agnis, Wavey, Bunny, Beaufield, and even Dennis claimed their home and futures and then flourished, once they accepted all that was available.
- Notice how although they were surrounded by great cruelty, they were also surrounded by great love at that very same time—they needed only shift their focus to reach it.

Success Tools for Movie Lovers – A Note from Lisa Elin, Cinema Therapy Mentor
Watching movies like we’re doing with Brooklyn is a self-growth approach that inspires natural and lasting change. As we watch with conscious awareness, we help our unconscious become open to new ideas and ways of doing things—leading to enhanced well-being and faster progress toward our goals! It’s the bridge between knowing the path, and walking the path.
