Remember Me

The film opens with the murder of a woman on a New York City Subway platform in 1991, and who is later revealed to be the mother of a young girl, who had witnessed this murder, named Ally Craig. Ten years later, Tyler Hawkins is a rebellious 22 year old living in New York City and attending New York University. He has had a strained relationship with his businessman father, Charles since his brother’s suicide. He and his roommate Aidan are constantly causing trouble throughout the city. One night, they find themselves in trouble with a police officer, Neil. Later, Tyler and Aidan meet Ally, who is also an NYU student, and soon figure out that she is the daughter of the police officer they ran into earlier. Aidan decides that Tyler pursuing Ally would be the best way to get back at Neil, and Tyler reluctantly agrees. After spending some time with Ally, the two bond over the losses in their pasts and begin to fall for each other. Their relationship is ultimately put to the test, however, by Neil’s inevitable discovery that his daughter is dating a troublemaking ruffian. Although the year these events take place is never explicitly stated, it is revealed near the end that it is 2001. At the end of the film, Tyler goes to the World Trade Center, where his father works, and is killed in the September 11 attacks.

My Point of View

The story of the tells us that life is unpredictable. That life is so short and we should make the best out of it while we’re breathing. In every change that we experience in life, there will be times when we will wonder if we can endure. But we will learn that facing each difficulty one by one isn’t so hard. It’s when we don’t deal with a situation that if sometimes comes back to confront us again. Changes are sometimes very painful but they teach us that we can endure and that we can become stronger. Everything that comes into our life has a purpose but the outcome is in our hands by the action we take. Be wise with your life, be willing to endure, and always be willing to face life’s challenges or else.
