Best Movies Life Lessons: Wonder Woman

Welcome back to Best Movies Life Lessons. In this third part of the series, we are going to look at a girl-power movie: Wonder Woman. For some of those who may still remember, and even watched, there was a TV series Wonder Woman back in the 70s, with Lindsay Wagner in the lead role. And as with old series, there must always be a remake somewhere in the future.

According to the Wiki entry, Wonder Woman the movie grossed worldwide $821,847,012 in 2017, claiming the 9th top-grossing movie of the year.

Born and raised in Israel, Gal Gadot-Varsano is a fighter like her role in the movies. Having served in the Israel Defense Forces as a combat instructor, she is no stranger to action scenes. In one of her earlier movies, she was cast as Gisele Yashar in the 4th film of the Fast & Furious series and performed her own stuntwork. Later of course in Wonder Woman, she displayed more of her prowess. For the movie, she was trained in capoeira, jiu jitsu and kickboxing.

With this movie, Gal Gadot finally stepped into prominence. With this movie too, we can glean life lessons:

  • Mentor – In the movie, Wonder Woman’s mother was not willing to train her, but she instead sought out a mentor, her aunt. Eventually her mother allowed the aunt to rigorously train her. In life, we often come across many things we don’t know. For the easier stuff, we can just hop on to the internet to scroll for answers. However there may be times when we need to approach a mentor to guide us. Therefore, be willing and aware that we always need a learning curve on our neverending journey of knowledge. Whether or not you are a leader or just an employee, you need to understand your strengths and weaknesses and figure out how to get ahead.
  • Judgement – In one scene, a character Sameer tells Wonder Woman upon her observation that Charlie talks about shooting, but then never shoots: “Everyone is fighting their own battles, just as you’re fighting yours, Diana.” Indeed, in our daily interactions with others, there are sometimes confrontations or arguments over what someone did. We are not what we are seen: You won’t know that someone is bulimic, just based on appearance… or that the individual has a traumatic past… Before we ever use ugly words at one other, or even act in anger, let us take into consideration that we all have our wounds and battles. Do not judge others.

If you enjoyed this movie, you may be thrilled to know that there is a sequel (naturally… for a top-grossing movie) coming right up next year 2019.

Wonder Woman is a fighter, better than most, but it’s what she fights for that is important. It’s her vision of a future of peace and acceptance that makes her the right ambassador for everyone.
~ Gal Gadot
