One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
One movie that I have seen that has really changed my life in a positive way is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. I was very young when I saw it, and had never really considered people in mental wards as “people;” for my teenaged mind, they were just lost souls who never really had a chance and needed to be locked up in order to save the rest of us from them. However, this movie (I had not read the book) really showed me that sanity and how we experience life is not black and white; how some people see the world isn’t necessarily crazy, but when viewed the wrong way by the wrong people they can be judged and harassed for it. This fact that I learned about life prompted me to begin to pursue a Psychology degree, so that I could better understand the human mind and make sure that nobody was persecuted just for being a little different.
