If Only...


If Only is a 2004 American romantic drama film directed by Gil Junger and starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and Paul Nicholls.


Ian Wyndham (Nicholls) is a British Businessman who lives with his musician girlfriend, Samantha Andrews (Hewitt) in London. Ian takes Sam for granted making Sam feeling vulnerable in the role of the one who loves more. The first half of the film describes a single day which culminates in a row in which Samantha's frustration boils over. The taxi Samantha catches is hit by another car in front of Ian and she dies. An inconsolable Ian goes back to bed alone only to wake up at the start of the same day and Sam still alive suggesting that it had all been a dream. At that point, he comes to realize that he had been taking Samantha for granted; and as he comes to relive the same day, Ian is then given a second chance to correct his mistakes. He does his best to get it right the second time around XXX as he holds her tight for the last time.


Another movie which reminded us to grab hold of the present and tell our loved ones we love them. Love, is so subjective. but i know, it's a very special feeling which only grateful ppl can experience. Especially when you know there is limited time left with loved ones on Earth, you'll want to cherish and APPRECIATE every moment possible. suddenly that instant, you might feel struggling for wealth, prioritizing career etc no longer matters. Seriously, what is wealth when you are lonely and no one is there to share the joy with you? drinking red wine alone, every night...or with a bunch of G.R.O., whom hardly know you, but ur cash only..ha! (no offence to anyone)
Just read one of Catherine Lim's work, this girl's mother worked as a prostitute to be the provider of the family; but she felt ashamed yet at the same time, wad can she do? without money, her 6 siblings will die of hunger! Guess there are things in life which can't be explain..but i'm sure God has a plan, everything that happened, tehre's a REASON behind it.

HAPPY EASTER SUNDAY TO ALL~

MORAL OF THE LESSON TODAY: Remember to tell your loved ones you love them~! XOXO!
