Love

Is another Christopher Nolan gem all about one message?

I think it is.

  • Cooper You’re a scientist, Brand.
  • Brand So listen to me when I say that love isn’t something that we invented. It’s… observable, powerful. It has to mean something.
  • Cooper Love has meaning, yes. Social utility, social bonding, child rearing…
  • Brand We love people who have died. Where’s the social utility in that?
  • Cooper None.
  • Brand Maybe it means something more – something we can’t yet understand. Maybe it’s some evidence, some artefact of a higher dimension that we can’t consciously perceive. I’m drawn across the universe to someone I haven’t seen in a decade, who I know is probably dead. Love is the one thing we’re capable of perceiving that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that, even if we can’t understand it. All right Cooper. Yes. The tiniest possibility of seeing Wolf again excites me. That doesn’t mean I’m wrong.

And she wasn’t.
