Eddie Botha: Yours Free, 2018


Magnolia is a 1999 American epic psychological drama film directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. The film consists of Jeremy Blackman, Tom Cruise, Melinda Dillon, Philip Baker Hall, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, which is a mosaic of interrelated roles in search of happiness, forgiveness, and meaning.

The narrator recounts three instances of incredible coincidences and suggests that forces greater than chance play important roles in life. When the group sang together, Magnolia began to destroy herself. Surprisingly, this movie started its last moment beautifully, just the torpedo itself, which is freed from the worst and most restored thoughts due to the intimacy of the performance and the deep distress signal sent out. Compared to the optimists of traditional sitcom Pollyanna, a show of a joyless world is more convincing? These lives are too slow and tragic to reach the level of tragedy.

The Australia based artist Eddie Botha @eddiebotha through this work – Yours Free, show on the themes in Magnolia, such as regret; loneliness; the cost of failed relationships; generation gap; and cruelty to children and its lasting effect as demonstrated by the sexual assault.
