Missing – Speech


From the movie Pleasantville played by Tobey Maguire.

I know you miss her, I mean, you told me you did. But maybe it’s not just the cooking or the cleaning that you miss. Maybe it’s something else. Maybe you can’t even describe it. Maybe you only know it when it’s gone. Maybe it’s like there’s a whole piece of you that’s missing, too. Look at her, Dad. Doesn’t she look pretty like that? Doesn’t she look just as beautiful as the first time you met her? Do you really want her back the way she was? Doesn’t she look wonderful? Now, don’t you wish you could tell her that?

The summary of the movie Pleasantville from IMDB: A brother and sister from the 1990s are sucked into their television set and suddenly find themselves trapped in a 1950s style television show. Here they have loving parents, old fashioned values, and an overwhelming amount of innocence and naiveté. Not sure how to get home, they integrate themselves into this “backwards” society and slowly bring some color to this black and white world. But as innocence fades, the two teens begin to wonder if their 90s outlook is really to be preferred.

My prediction, Tobey Maguire might someday considered to be in the same class as Tom Hanks and Jimmy Stewart. Likable, admired, well respected actor and all around good guy.
