A Review of the Film A Walk to Remember (Movie Review)
Khalid, the character played by Geoffrey Rush in the film A Walk to Remember has always been a part of my life. In fact I even remember him as a young boy playing outside his grandmother’s house and we always had a great time together.
He was a great friend of mine who was always there for me whenever I needed him. He was always the one to call when I was sick or needed someone to play on my baseball team with.
He always treated people with respect, he was kind and thoughtful, yet, did not put me down as if I was nothing. He was always laughing and talking about jokes and even shared a few with me.
One day, Khalid was standing with his brother and their father and they were talking about why their parents divorced and their father had divorced his wife before their grandfather. Their father then goes on to say that their grandparents have a problem with each other, but they never get back together and he said that he heard their grandfather said something to the effect of; “I don’t know why my granddad got divorced, it must be a woman.”
The grandparents started talking about this was’s grandfather said this and who knows whether or not this is true. After all, even they did not have the same religion and father and son might not see eye to eye. I could only imagine how she felt.
Anyway, Khalid and his brother took this information and started asking their grandfather about it and the grandfather replied with more questions and told them to think about it and ask some more questions. Shortly after, he told them that he did not know anything about this marriage or divorce, although he did know a little bit about it.
But then he went on to say that he would be the one to tell their grandfather if the stories they were hearing were true or not. Then they asked their grandfather to take them to one of his friends who is a family member.
Now, while they were walking with this man, they asked him why are these old people so close to you? The man told them that it is because these old people are always there for you.
