    I just searched for this after deciding that I’m going to move. I graduated from college 2 months ago, having been living with my parents for the past year, and have made so many excuses for myself to not pursue something further. To reach beyond the area in which I grew up. I just contacted someone about an apartment in Brooklyn. If not now, when?

    I know it’s a movie but I always love when a parent talks with their child like an equal, has an “adult” conversation. Even if the kid is old enough to fully understand or fully grasp the concept of the conversation. My oldest brother does this with his kid and it’s awesome. But there’s always time for imagination and games. 🙂

    I used to dream about being a guitar player, I used to practice 6 hours per day.. Till my fingers hurt. One day my grandma came to me and said "you're pretty good, huh? but you know, this wont take you anywhere.. You need to do something that will give you money and a future.." and that was enough to make me lose motivation.

     I wonder what kind of future I would have today if I kept following my dream

    I wish I had me a strong father figure in my life when I were a kid. My father didn't taught me nothing. Didn't even care about my education. That's why I love this movie. Because of the strong relationship between Will and his son. He was poor,but he was still there for his son. Love it.

    This scene hits home because all of us who watched it and resonated with it ultimately have something from our past – a chip on your shoulder from failure.
    And although we aren't perfect and can make a mess of things – in this moment when watching a film – you're able to at times live vicariously through these characters.
    Beautiful movie.

    What makes this so powerful is how Will shoots Jaydens dream down at first. We see him recognize his own weakness in real time. He realizes he is projecting his own failures on to his kid.

  • Reply lemur918 August 7, 2019 at 5:46 am

    This means more to me now as a working adult than when I watched this movie as a child and later in college. Starting college you think you have it all figured out and that you are on the path to your dream. Then you often hit roadblocks. My job is good, but not my dream job. I want to keep dreaming and I want to go for it. I want to still believe that I can have the life I've always wanted. This speech is a call to me to reawaken the dreams I thought died.

    Pretty sure the scene is trying to illustrate how Will telling his son dissuaded Jaden from playing basketball at all, but then Will backs up his statement in saying that no matter what anyone says, him included, should you never give up on your dreams. Don’t let anyone take you down or tell you what to do with your life.
