All I Wish is a movie about Senna, an aspiring fashion designer in her late 40s, played by Sharon Stone. She hasn’t found success in either her profession or her love life. As a result, she has developed a cynical yet lighthearted outlook on life, and she doesn’t expect much future success. The movie takes place over a series of one-year increments that occur on Senna’s birthday. Senna slowly overcomes obstacles and begins to do well in her business. She also meets Adam, played by Tony Goldwyn, a lawyer who just transferred from Boston to Los Angeles. Their initial meeting is a complete disaster, but the pair crosses paths on more birthdays, and time works its healing magic. Because of her attraction to Adam, Senna’s relationship mindset changes, causing confusion between the two characters.
50 Dates at 50 Take:
I like this movie because it has quality acting, solid production value, and good humor. It’s positive and moves at a decent pace. I also like that the characters are in the 50 Dater age group. The movie acts as a reminder that some of us are late bloomers in finding love. Senna finds it when she least expects it. Senna also finds business success because she perseveres. Many of us are at a point in our lives where we can leave our current career to pursue our business passion. This movie reminds us that it’s never too late to go after what you want. The karaoke scene is painful to watch in a good way.
Why You Need to Watch It:
This movie demonstrates how our relationship goals can change with life experience. Gals, you can find Mr. Right, but you have to put yourself out there. If Senna just stayed home on her birthday(s), she would not have met Adam.
Guys can learn a few things about confidence from Adam. Tony Goldwyn, at around 56 years of age when the movie was shot, is in excellent shape. It shows what is possible when you put some effort into getting healthy and living in the moment. Adam conducts himself pretty well under most circumstances, except when he loses patience with Senna. Character is revealed when you make plans and they don’t work. Adam should have just continued to date Senna and let things fall into place. Patience is key.
