Cheated?

*

Bloom:  “Do you feel cheated?”

 

Penelope:  “The trick to not feeling cheated is to learn how to cheat.

So – I decided this wasn’t a story about a miserable girl, trapped in a house that smelled like medical supplies, wasting her life on a dying person she sometimes hated – no.

This was a story about a girl who could find infinite beauty in anything, any little thing…and even love the person she was trapped with. And I told myself this story until it became true.

Now – did doing this help me escape a wasted life? Or – did it blind me so I wouldn’t want to escape it? I dunno.

But either way I was the one telling my own story so no – I don’t feel cheated at all…”

(from the card trick scene in the film “The Brothers Bloom”)
