REAL LOVE IS ACTIVE AND DETERMINED
“I also wanted to express that, sometimes the people who love you may not pay you all the attention you need; and, sometimes the people who do pay you attention may not love you in the healthiest way.” — Neil Gaiman, author
What does it mean when your loved ones don’t seem to love you as much as you would like? The answer in Coraline is found by flipping that question around. It’s ultimately not about how others demonstrate their love to you, but rather, who you demonstrate your love for them. Coraline’s parents are drab when it comes to affections. But when they need help, Coraline goes to great extremes to save them. Real love is active and determined. Nothing can defeat it, not even the evil Other Mother. Here is an important message in a soon to be classic movie.
