On my to do list, see Jeff Bridges in Crazy Heart, movies that show striving and doing the best you can inspire me. Stories inspire me. Crazy Heart is about the hard life of a broken down country singer.
Along with seeing Invictus, an Eastwood's film about Mandela with Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, I am sure it will rise all emotions.
What inspires you, keeps you going, gets the mind heading in the direction towards your goals? What do you do to get inspired?
