Reaction paper about the movie of “The Ultimate Gift”
The story is all about Jason that has turned out to be such a self centered, lazy young man. He is a selfish trust fund guy who arrives late for his grandfather funeral. Jason thought he was going to inherit a piece of wealth from his grandfather but first, in order to get it, Jason must complete the gift challenges. Along while working with this gift challenges that his grandfather assigned, he met Emily and Alexia, the mother of Emily, who help him to pass the gift of friends. Jason discovers by accident that Emily is suffering leukemia, and sees this family as a chance to develop a strong bond.
Jason tries his best to help Emily have a great life while it lasts whilst Emily also encourages a romance between Jason and her mother. In the end, Jason chooses to build a hospital called Emily’s Home, before Emily died. Jason passed the twelve challenging gifts and receives one final gift of $2,000,000,000.
I like about the movie is that they showed or represent the twelve gifts which is could help us learned lots of life lessons. Like the gift of friends, Jason already knew who is the real one who can stand for him though he don’t have something to offer for. Unlike his girlfriend who dump him when nothings left to him. But on the other hand, Emily accepted for him that she could go and prove that she was a good friend of Jason though Jason haven’t promise anything in returned.
I didn’t like the part of the movie when Emily has passed away because that’s the time when a drop of a liquid from my left eye was flowing unto my face whilst my right eye was kind of “teary”. By the way, I’m not just the only one was like that. Almost of us though.
The gifts that I value today are the gifts of work, friends, learning, family, dreams, and gratitude.
The gift that I should develop more is the gift of money. I could develop it by saving it and value it because it’s hard to work for money.
