Irrespective of age, half the people in the world does not have the ability to open their minds and swallow life's bittersweet reality and be grateful to be a part of it. It is human nature to make their own selves the centre of their world, but it takes maturity to be able to accept that there are other people playing their own roles in the world and that ours is barely any weightier or more significant than the others. Self-centeredness was exactly what encourages me to always humble myself, because everybody is as self-centered as everybody else but before the Almighty we are all nothing and the same. Just because you do not live the life of other people, does not mean they do not prevail and their lives are irrelevant.
Which is why I fell crazy in love with the finally released Indonesia's fashion movie by Nia Dinata! The story is framed upon a series of events in the fashion industry, involving at least three admirable personalities; Mika (the passionate underdog runway choreographer), Naira (the innocent apprentice designer), and Jelita (the timelessly attractive model). The movie projects each woman's take in the whole story which makes it interesting as you can only complete the puzzle of the movie by watching all three and placing yourself in the shoes of these three women in turns.
You can access the outtakes and interviews of Runway Dreams movie at Downy's Youtube page here.
I personally relate to Mika as a young woman with ambitions and determination to realize them, but I can't help but also relate to Jelita as a figure with influential attraction who maintains outer beauty as much as the inner. Overall, the choices of characters by Nia Dinata are interesting especially in view of my current life phase where people start pursuing their dreams and persevering their achievements. Would you agree? Who do you relate to the most and why?
