Movie Meme Day 11

A Movie that Changed Your Mind About Something

This topic bugged me for days. I couldn't think of anything. I was trying to think of a movie that made me realize that some kind of social or moral belief of mine was wrong. I know there have been movies that made me change my mind about something poignant, but I couldn't think of any.

So I'm just going with a movie that changed my mind about an actor.

I used to hate Edward Norton. With a passion. Couldn't stand him - even when he dated Salma Hayek (who I ADORE). I didn't respect him as a person, so I couldn't respect him as an actor.

And then Surfer Pirate talked me into watching American History X.

And you know what?

Edward Norton is a REALLY good actor. And now I respect him (or, at least his acting).
