Christian Bale in Equilibrium Sunrise Scene

Christian Bale in Equilibrium Sunrise Scene

I just finished watching the movie Equilibrium starring Christian Bale, and it inspired me.

After getting home from the airport, I got onto my twitter account and wanted something to watch as I tweeted.  I hadn’t seen Equilibrium in a while…

My favorite scene in the entire movie is when Christian Bale’s character wakes up and gets to feel what it’s like to see a sunrise for the first time… It is beautiful, and his acting and expressions in the scene are so real…

It reminds me that there are so many wondrous things in this world that I take for granted.  I can feel that same wonder and amazement when I look around too… It’s a choice I get to make.  :)


There is also a great quote that I like from the movie by William Butler Yeats:

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

If you haven’t seen this movie, I highly recommend it.  Although, be ready for some great action and some violence as well.
