Forever isn’t exactly as good as it sounds.
This is the last movie I watched as of now. I thought it was just like other movies which feature immortal characters but no, it’s different. Tuck Everlasting is about a family who has a secret. They are not vampires, or werewolves or witches who dabbles with black magic. But one thing is sure, they don’t die. It was because of the water from a spring in the middle of the forest. Their secret was safe and intact until Winnie, the only daughter of a wealthy couple who own the woods, wanders in the forest and found Jesse, the youngest son of the Tucks. As cliché as most story goes, the two fell in love. But circumstances weren’t easy as Winnie’s family looked for her and accused the Tucks for kidnapping. Jesse and Winnie were forced to separate as the Tucks escape their death penalty,which could reveal their secret to the whole town.
The story tells us that we could live our lives without fearing that it might end. It will teach us that forever is not really as fun as we think it would be, that major consequences would be faced. It tells us about loss, love and letting go. We can move on and live our life as we want to, free from the control of others. It shows us that death is merely an inescapable part of one’s life.
