You've got Mail

by Rachna
(Michigan, USA)

The movie that influenced me the most in my life, especially in my youth, was “You’ve got mail” which starred Toms Hanks and Meg Ryan. This movie was released in 1998 and I was 18 years old at that time. My outlook in life was vastly different from what it is today. I was quite cynical and pessimistic and did not instinctively believe in positive outcomes. Of course, falling in love and the intensity and happiness associated with it was completely foreign to me. When I first saw this movie, I fell in love with Tom Hanks; with New York City and with Meg Ryan as well! What with its NYC scenes, its amazing music and the twisted relationship shown between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan’s characters, I was helpless! Meg falling in love with the one person she thought she hated but whose thought process she loved, albeit through an exchange of emails.


For me the movie was a very positive one; how against all odds two people gave each other a chance and fell in love. “Never judge a book by its cover” is the phrase that comes to mind. Had Meg Ryan not given Tom Hanks’ character a chance she would have never realized what a wonderful person he is and how similar they are and how much he cares for her. I think this movie subtlety changed my perception about men and definitely about life in general. I saw it multiple times, and each time found some new aspect to fall in love with. Even when Meg Ryan and her first boyfriend part ways, it was such a peaceful parting; two people acknowledging with maturity that they are not suited to one another and wishing each other the best of luck. The relationships I had seen had never ended so positively!

I can see this movie again and again and every time it makes me forget my pain and makes me want to live life more positively again.
