Brian: Marni, do you want to go see a movie this weekend?
Marni: Sure. What were you thinking?
Brian: There’s a new action movie, and then there’s a documentary. I was assuming we’d go see the action movie.
Marni: I think we should go see the documentary.
Brian: Really? Don’t you think those are boring?
Marni: Absolutely not. I love a good documentary. Leaning things about something, when they really delve in deeply. The impact it can have on you. It’s really profound.
Brian: It just always seems like they’re about history. And I already studied that in class.
Marni: It’s not always about history. It can be about human nature or a particular interest. I find it’s just so stimulating to watch a documentary about something I know nothing about. You learn all this information. It’s wonderful.
Brian: So, you are in the belief that truth is stranger than fiction.
Marni: Definitely. But there’s so many different styles of documentaries. Especially when they have interesting interviews with people that you really admire. I think we should go to a documentary. Expand your mind.
