Kaleidoscope Movie Magic – October 2018
This month’s selection is Paterson.
It’s an exquisite character study of a bus driving poet and his gentle walk through life’s ups and downs.
Dir. Jim Jarmusch (also wrote). Perf. Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Nellie.
Amazon Studios / Bleeker Street Media, 2016.
As You Watch
Click here to review our October forecast, then consider the following as you watch this month’s selection.
- Observe the almost extreme level of “chill” carried forth by Paterson and Laura. She is more vivacious, he more reflective, but both pursue their joy with abandon and appreciation (of their own expressions, and often even more, each other’s).
- Notice how throughout the film, every individual is given the benefit of the doubt for no negative intent, how there is a constructive response to situations even when they go off the rails, and how these maintain a vibe of secure love and optimism in life.
Lisa generously provides a handout with watching suggestions & guided journaling exercises created specifically for our Kaleidoscope group. Enjoy benefits & perks like this and more when you join our colorful community!
Each month, we take a deep dive into the month’s colors and energy. I also share what you need to know based on your own personal color preferences.
Plus, we explore Angel messages & affirmations for additional inspiration & loving support. Since we have 2 live calls each month, there’s plenty of open Q&A and group share time with me & our members.
