Have you ever wondered why real life resembles movies so much? That’s because when we watch a movie, we follow the plot exactly as it is described in the screenplay and immerse ourselves completely in it. In the sense that we follow a mental script as we live, our experiences of life are similar.
And who among us hasn’t fantasized about playing the lead role in a beloved movie or participating in a bizarre plot? Real life is likewise filled with brave acts, pleasant surprises, and surprising turns of fate, despite the fact that movies depict made-up storylines and special effects.
As many have said, art imitates life, and life also imitates art, it goes both ways. Although most people’s lives are peaceful and normal, sometimes we come across events and moments that make us question the nature of reality itself. Practically everyone can uncover a memory that has a tale with a narrative deserving of an Oscar. Read on to discover some of the real-life stories that seem like they could only happen in a movie.
