Life Lesson from THE JUDGE

I watched this film a long time ago, before I became a mother. The genre was a family drama. RDJ’s character (I forgot what his name here) is still the same as in the previous film although he was in different genre. Yes, he was still a sarcastic man.

I watched this film from the point of view of the father and son’s relationship which was rigid, cold, and distant.

They love each other, but they also hate. Yes,  love and hate at the same time. They admire each other, but they are reluctant to admit.  

Love and affection make confused sometimes. Those are hard to say and express. There are also those who deliberately show otherwise. They choose to be hated by someone who they love. Dunno why. It is also absurd.

And the another fact, sometimes the complicated relationship between parents and their son/daughter is because of very simple thing.

Like in this film, for example. RDJ, who has become a very successful lawyer, still needs validation from his father. Everyone knows RDJ is a respected lawyer. But, It still doesn’t make him happy because his father seems to look down to him.

Honestly, his father was very proud of him. But, he just couldn’t and (didn't want to) express. 

I learned from this film that a child will be a child though he/she has grown up and has reached his/her dreams.
