"My Fair Lady's" Message Warms Viewer's Hearts

On this past Saturday night, I decided to watch the movie-musical “My Fair Lady” staring Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison. I loved the film with Henry Higgins who played the phonetic in which he makes a bet with Eliza Doolittle. Eliza plays a poor flower girl. The tension between Higgins and Eliza is intense, yet funny and entertaining. It was worth watching this three-hour film. It was inspiring to me because I related to her character; it brought back memories of how I met my fiancé and how the character Mr. Higgins represents him.

    In the beginning of the film, a person can see Eliza as a peasant. Then from that standpoint, a person can assume what is going to happen throughout the rest of the movie. Audrey Hepburn’s appearance at the ball was striking with her astounding dress and it warmed my heart. The plot of this film reminded me of a lesson in life, on how a person can change their view of the world with a little help of courage. This courage helped Eliza’s self-image.

    At the middle of the film, this man falls in love with her. It’s an edge of your seat picture. The singing was spectacular, with Audrey’s voice completely enchanting and rehearsed. This love story is twisted from beginning to end. Eliza’s father plays a drunken lad yet at the same time, he gets involved in her life. I put part of my life in this movie. The flashbacks of my life came rolling in as far back as when she is at the ball, and when they recognize her as the poor flower girl.

    Meanwhile, Eliza is confident and adjusted to becoming this beautiful rich duchess. It reminds a person about going to prom and getting that last minute invitation. Well, similar to my prom it was last minute and did not end too bad. Just like this movie, I danced with the man in shining armor.

    At the end of the film, it was inspiring to me to know how Eliza is welcomed to this perfect-pictured world and she came back to live a happy-ending. Mr. Higgins plays this serious character, yet becomes so involved in helping her get a better life.  I enjoyed this movie because it sends out a positive message to everyone, saying never give up your dreams and that it is never too late.
