I am an avid movie lover. I view, review and cite them in workshops and keynotes. But so often I look at a movie and decide on how I would create a different ending. For example, the movie I posted the other day Dodsworth had one of those endings most of us would cheer. I mean after all he had such a horrid time with his wife. Why shouldn’t he be happy with a lonely woman his age who appreciated his gifts?
Yet, I came up with an alternative, rather controversal new ending. It goes something like this:
His selfish, self-centered and cheating wife goes home alone after he leaves her for another woman. While on the cruise ship she meets a dynamic baby boomer grandmother who provides some character building advice. The woman goes home and gets trained to be a therapist. Her clients are emerging baby boomer women with a need for a new perspective on life.
Later she becomes remarried and before the film is over actually apologizes to her daugher and hubby.
So, that is my version but do you have movies you would provide a different ending?
