GUESS THE MOVIE ENDING

UPDATED BELOW
The following is a quote from a narrative given at the end of one of our favourite movies. As a hint, we can say that the movie title is completely appropriate to the kind of work we do. 

It's very profound, Enjoy. 


We are all faced in throughout our lives with agonizing decisions. Moral choices. Some are on a grand scale. Most of these choices  are on lesser points. But we define ourselves by the choices we have made. We are in fact the sum total of our choices. Events unfold so unpredictably, so unfairly,  human happiness does not seem to have been included in the design of creation. It is only we, with our capacity to love that gives meaning to the indifferent  universe. And yet most human beings seem to have the ability to keep trying and to find joy in simple things like their family, their work, and from the hope that future generations might understand more. 

Once the correct guess is made, we will try and post a clip from the ending. 
GUESSED: Crimes and Misdemeanors. Our favourite Woody Allen movie. It's very underrated and one of the best movies you will see. 

We often are pitched novels via email. We had  nice email chat with this chap, and agreed to post his press release for his novels. If you like the genre, this is for you. Give him a read. As they say in England, you might find it a "cracking good read." 


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
United Kingdom – While time-travel fiction has always been a staple of the fantasy world, both readers and critics are currently crying out for wholly-unique new narratives that don’t simply recycle the “same-old” concepts. Nick Jones is bucking the trend with gusto, throwing an unlikely “average Joe” on a time travel adventure in an attempt to deal with his dark and wounded past.
Jones’ ‘Downstream’ became an instant hit among fans and critics. For the first time, the complete first season is being released in digital box-set format.
Synopsis:
Meet Joseph Bridgeman, a reclusive insomniac with a weakness for ‘The Beatles’ on vinyl and a constant headache. When his annoying accountant suggests hypnotherapy might help him sleep, Joseph accidentally discovers he can time-travel and things get a little complicated.

With the help of Vinny, a local record shop owner, Mark, his old school friend, and Alexia Finch, his hypno-time-travel guru, Joe sets out to change the course of his life. He needs to get back to 1992, the year his world fell apart, the year that Amy, his sister, went missing. The only problem (apart from his clothes disappearing) is that the further back he goes the less time he gets to stay there. 

Can Joe master his new-found gift before time catches up with him?
As Jones explains his series began as a simple serialised writing project.
“I wanted to write something new and unique that played into everything time travel and fantasy fans crave, but without having some kind of “hero” in the middle. He had to be an average guy, suffering from real-world problems,” explains the author. “I wanted to release instalments in quick succession, and by episode five the ending had written itself and I became acutely aware that what I had on my hands was worth so much more than your average self-published novel.”
Continuing, “I also broke new ground by weaving a very unique brand of humour and drama into the mix. It all played into my goal of having a story, a character and a series that feel incredibly real and vivid to readers. This helps them put themselves in the middle of the action – and the glowing reviews prove it has paid off!”
Critics have come in force with five-star write-ups. For example, K.J. Noyes comments, “EXCELLENT time travel concept, original and funny, with a wonderful lead character and potential for development.”
Another critic adds, “If you love time travel stories, this is one for you. If you like adventure stories, this is one for you. If you like stories in general, you'll not go wrong with this one; you'll laugh, cry, and thoroughly enjoy every twist and turn in this book. Read it here, or read each episode individually, but don't let this author pass you by.” 
‘Downstream - Complete Season 1’ is available now:

"Crimes & Misdemeanors" is Woody's best movie.

It's a flick that has nothing to do with the law ( you may even say it's an anti-law story) but, rather, it's a stunning and thought- provoking existential movie about morality. It's a brilliant film with multiple story arcs that seemingly have nothing to do withe each other but, once the movie is over, they have everything to do with each other. It's a movie that requires multiple viewings since there is so much there.

The irony that Woody Allen made a movie that is "stunning and thought-provoking" about morality...a man that had sex with his adopted daughter.

Woody Allen is a disgusting person yet, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Hanna and her Sisters, Manhattan and Blue Jasmine are fantastic movies with the direction (by Woody Allen) being an integral aspect of the quality of the art.
