Re: Lady in the Water - A Prediction About Barack Obama

I saw Lady in the Water again last night. I hadn't seen it since 2006, so this time something said in the movie got my attention in a way it didn't before. It was when Story was telling Vick about what kind of influence his book would have in the future. It went something like this...

"A boy in the Midwest of this land will grow up in a home where your book will be on the shelf and spoken of often. He will grow up with these ideas in his head. He will grow into a great orator. He will speak and his words will be heard throughout this land and throughout the world. This boy will become leader of this country and begin a movement of great change. He will speak of you and your words. Your book will be the seeds of many of his great thoughts. It will be the seeds of change..."

When I heard it, I immediately thought of Barack Obama.

I just thought I'd put this out there.
One of the big problems with that movie is that it's never specified whether or not this apparent leader was the next Washington or the next Hitler...so please, no comparisons yet.
