Words of Wisdom
"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" is a fantasy comedy released in 2007. Yes, there is a magical toy store, a zebra, and many hats, among other zany things. Also in the lineup: (two words) Jason Bateman. (Now I don't know if you've ever seen "Arrested Development"...but you should.) While "Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" received mixed reviews from critics, I thought it was a very sweet depiction of staying young at heart and fulfilling your dreams. The film stars Dustin Hoffman, Natalie Portman, and Bateman (referred to as "mutant" throughout the majority of the film). Did I mention that I have a celebrity crush on Portman? Have you seen "V for Vendetta"? She's amazing! And Hugo Weaving is phenomenal as 'V', so go check that out too....I digress; the main point of this blog is to highlight an inspirational line Hoffman delivers in the movie that struck me then, and has been significant to me these past few months. Enjoy.
