Twin Soul Movie, Part 3

     Another movie I like to think of as representing Twin Souls is, perhaps surprisingly, Something's Gotta Give, with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson.  I know, I know, she's so -- flighty -- and he's so, well,  -- devilish -- sometimes, but hear me out.

     If you've read The Gemini Bond, you will remember how Trey describes that Twin Souls need to balance the male and female parts in themselves before they are ready to join.  I think that is what this movie shows. 

     For example, Nicholson's character needs to become vulnerable to understanding his own faults and open to being hurt.  In one scene, he is crying on a Paris bridge, saying, "I guess I'm the girl now." 

     For Keaton's character, she needs to find her strength, not in building a wall of resistance to being hurt, but rather in overcoming her pain to find her true voice.  When she completes her play, she transforms pain into triumph.

     It's a fun movie, and besides, you get to see some gorgeous beach property and -- oh, la, la -- Paris in winter.
