‘Endings Beginnings’ is a strong movie that entails a woman’s journey on the path of self-discovery. It stars Shailene Woodley (previously renowned for her role in Divergent) as Daphne. Daphne is seen as a girl who has recently undergone a break-up. She decides not to involve her mind over anything emotional for some time. However, she encounters a twist when she crosses path with Sebastian Stan (famous for his role in Captain America) as Frank and Jamie Dornan (who is highly acknowledged for his role in Fifty Shades of Grey) as Jack.
One theme of this movie is basically a love triangle between them. Although, it is eventually revealed that more than the two men, she wants to embark on a journey of self-realization. So, while standing on the crossroads of life, what will she decide? This question is answered at the end of the movie. If you have not watched the movie yet, we are warning you that there are Spoilers ahead.
What is the highlight of ‘Endings Beginnings’?
Daphne has resigned from her job in order to cope up with her break up from a serious relationship. She tries to shelter with her sister, who acts as her cocoon. At a post-breakup stage, she vouches to stay away from alcohol, men for the coming six months. During this time frame, she wanted to devote a complete focus on her self development.
All of it is going well until she comes into contact with Jack and Frank. The fire starts burning within as she faces infatuation towards both of them. As much as she wants not to become a thorn in between their bond, she ends up being one. The intensity of this cold war keeps on increasing until she is left to decide what she really wants.
Whom does Daphne choose in the end?
Between a handsome, outgoing Frank and firm and witty Jack, Daphne chooses herself. This kind of love triangle has been seen previously in a lot of movies. Many times, it tends to disappoint the audience when the actress does not choose the hero they were cheering for. It is true that this choice should have been made way back but ‘better late than never’. With her easily convincible self, she wonders if she had ignored herself for a long time now.
She is certainly an iconic figure for a lot of clueless people in their 20’s. This time, she is firm in searching for self-love within and, more importantly, finally takes a holiday from alcohol and men. With a new chapter of pregnancy opening up towards the end, we can look back and retrospect her entire character development. Did this movie connect with you as much as it did with us?
