Sometimes you learn some great lessons when you’re least expecting them. I was watching Furious 6, and this particular dialogue hit me hard. Not only the truth in it, but also the conviction with which the character delivers it.
That’s when I realized; in all my stories so far, I have never been able to create a character so strong and powerful as this one. It’s one of the things that make a character stand out, and be remembered. It’s the self-belief, the conviction, and – to an extent – arrogance that defines a character.
Between a character like this and a character that remains silent in that exact situation, I’d always prefer this one.
That’s a writing lesson I’d never forget; for a character to linger, she must display powerful attitude.
What say you guys? Any other lessons from movies?
