We all reach critical junctures in our lives, and those turning points nearly always require us to make some significant (and hard) choices. It’s a process that can become considerably more difficult if we tune out to it, be it intentionally or inadvertently, during the time leading up to those decisions. Such is the lot of a middle class English couple in the bittersweet romantic comedy-drama, “Le Week-End.”
At its metaphysical core, “The Iron Lady” showcases one individual’s efforts at practicing conscious creation, the philosophy that maintains we each create our own reality. This theme is perhaps best summed up by a quote from the protagonist: “Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny! What we think, we become.”
As physical beings, we’re innately accustomed to living life in a reality where nearly all of its elements—like us—have defined physical parameters. Those inherent boundaries give shape, definition and limitation to everything we encounter within this existence. But, strange though it may seem to some of us, boundaries are not limited to just the physical aspects of our world; they also provide limits to things of a nonphysical nature, like our emotions and the frameworks of our interpersonal relationships.
