Quotes:

[first lines]

Sarah Jordan:
I wonder, do we all know where we belong? And if we do, in our hearts, why do we so often do nothing about it? There must be more to this life, a purpose for us all, a place to belong. You were my home. I knew from the moment I met you, that night, so many years ago.

Rating: 10/10

I was absolutely amazed by this film. It has changed my entire
perspective on life. After seeing this I want to smack myself for
every time that I've ever complained. Ever been depressed. Ever
"suffered". I am very disappointed that Beyond Borders was not released
in cinemas in my country, and did not do well worldwide. I think it
could touch so many more lives like it did my own. I am so much more
grateful for what I and everyone else in the Western world have/has. We
have very little to worry and stress about. Our lives are so trivial
and we need to understand just how lucky we are. On top of it being an
amazingly meaningful movie, it has a very well developed storyline with
excellent acting by both Angelina Jolie, Clive Owen and everyone else.

Please see this movie. It is wonderful and breathtaking and emotional
and heartwarming and covers almost every other feeling you could have.

And if you are one of the people brave enough to do something about the
situations discussed in the movie, I thank you so much, from one human
to another.
