【Movie|电影】Joy|翻轉幸福

February 23, 2016, Tuesday
Such a very inspiring movie, from a clerk or a housewife turns into an inventor. Maybe not many people thought so too, people has been telling her that's a huge mistake to invest in her self-wringing mop. But the truth is in the end she has successfully run her own business and also helping others to develop their new invention too.

一部非常有激勵性的電影,通常人家提起實現夢想都會說是十多二十幾歲的時候,當你已結婚了,三十幾歲時候在談自己夢想的時候,別人就會說“你別傻了!” 但在這部電影里,也是改編自真人真事的電影的她,的確好像奇跡般的成功了。

Based on a true story movie, Joy Mangano biographical comedy drama film. When she was young, she makes her own toy, she paper into various kind of shapes (animals, tress, house etc) and play with it. But everything has changed after her parents got divorced. And she has forgotten her childhood dream ever since the day, until one day she got injured by cleaning up broken glass, she came out the idea of self wringing mop. Things always not so easy when she first started and even so on......luckily she has overcome everything in the end.
Sometimes in reality we might stopped or laughed by anyone, anything around us. It's always not easy to be success, to the word  "no pain, no gain". Read from somewhere that if we encountered some difficulties in our life, don't hate it, instead you should thank for being there to challenge yourself on getting better. (yea, easy to speak than do, honestly me myself can't even guarantee that, then how about you???)
 *************************************************************************
一位小時候的充滿想象力的小朋友,卻因爲父母的突然離異破壞了她的作品,讓她不再去追夢,隨著一般人的步伐結婚生子。有時候我會在想,人的一生是否就一定要這樣,是不是衹要有了人生的這幾個過程后,你的人生就會完整的成爲贏家?家人真的要用這個來比例,那我就已經輸很久了(不過雖然我也覺得女人要成功也要先完成女人的本份,結婚生子后再去追夢,但既然我沒辦法完成,那我就用後面做起吧!)
在她人生的低谷,她將危機轉化成生機,這個説來容易,但做起來卻困難重重。有些問題有些事,當你不去面對,他還是會存在,或許我們人類已慣性的說“以後再處理吧!” 但這個以後,似乎是不會有到來的一天,可能是因爲我們聽不到時光流失的聲音,所以我們不覺得它其實是在一點一滴的消失著。追夢,從來就不是易事,一切衹始于開啓的脚步。

In 1989, Joy Mangano is a divorced mother of two, working as a booking clerk for Eastern Airlines. She lives with her two young children, her mother, Terri, her grandmother, Mimi, and her ex-husband, Tony in Quogue, New York. Her parents are divorced, and her mother and father fight whenever her father shows up at her home. Joy's older half-sister, Peggy, is an overachiever who constantly humiliates Joy in front of her children. Peggy and Joy's father Rudy are very close. Terri spends all day lying in bed watching soap operas as a means of escape from her life, leaving Joy to run the household. Only Joy's grandmother and her best friend Jackie encourage her to pursue her inventing ambitions and become a strong successful woman.

After divorcing his third wife, Joy's father starts dating Trudy, a wealthy Italian widow with some business experience. While on Trudy's boat, Joy drops a glass of red wine, attempts to mop up the mess, and cuts her hands on the broken glass while wringing the mop. Joy returns home and creates blueprints for a self-wringing mop. She builds a prototype with help from the employees at her father's shop. She then convinces Trudy to invest in the product. They make a deal with a company in California to manufacture the mop's parts at a low price. In order to avoid a potential lawsuit, Joy also pays $50,000 in royalties to a man in Hong Kong who supposedly has created a similar product. When the company repeatedly bills Joy for faulty parts they create, Joy refuses to pay the fees and tells her father, Trudy, and Peggy not to pay them.

Joy needs a quick, easy way to advertise her product, and is able to meet with QVC executive Neil Walker. Neil is impressed and shows Joy his infomercials, where celebrities sell entrepreneur's products through a telethon system. Neil tells Joy to manufacture 50,000 mops. Joy is advised by Trudy to take out a second mortgage on her home, in order to pay her costs. The first infomercial fails, but when she goes on QVC, Joy and her product become an overnight success. Things look up for the family, with the mop earning thousands of dollars on QVC, and Terri falls for Toussaint, a Haitian plumber Joy hired earlier in the film to fix up a leak in Terri's bedroom.

Joy's grandmother dies suddenly. Rudy and Trudy send Peggy to California to conduct Joy's company business. Afterwards Peggy tells Joy that she paid excessively raised production fees. Joy is angry and travels to California to meet with the manufacturer, who refuses to pay her back. Joy also discovers that the manufacturer is about to fraudulently patent her design. Her lawyer reveals that there is nothing they can do to prevent this, and Joy is forced to file for bankruptcy. Joy discovers that the manufacturers have been defrauding her the entire time she has dealt with them. She confronts the owner, and forces him to pay her back.

Several years later, Joy is wealthy and runs a successful business. She continues to take care of her father, even though he and Peggy had unsuccessfully sued her for ownership of the company. Terri is the only family member who does not live off Joy, finally finding stability through her relationship with Toussaint. Jackie and Tony remain Joy's most valued advisers, and the film ends with her helping a young mother develop a new invention.

改編自美國一位成功女企業家的真人真事。 

1989年,任職東方航空售票員的喬伊是一名單親媽媽,她與一對子女、母親特芮和祖母美美,還有前夫東尼同住於紐約蘇福克郡,她為了扛起一家的生計而努力打拼。喬伊的父母離異,每當她的父親魯迪在她的家中出現,她的父母便會打起來。喬伊同父異母的姐姐,佩姬,是個成就比預期更大的人,經常在她子女面前侮辱她,佩姬和魯迪很親近。儘管她的祖母和她最好的朋友積奇都相信不認命的她能夠追求自己的想法並成為一個女強人,然而母親特芮卻鼓勵她放棄成為一個成功發明家的夢想。 

跟第三任妻子離婚後,魯迪跟一個富有並有些從商經驗的意大利寡婦特魯迪約會。在特魯迪的船上,喬伊打翻一杯紅酒,她試圖打掃,將拖把扭乾的時候,玻璃碎片把她的手割傷。回家後,喬伊就自己製作自動扭乾拖把的藍圖。她到父親的車房,在員工的幫助下,建立了魔術拖把的原型,然後說服特魯迪為產品投資。他們跟加州的一家公司以低廉的價格製作魔術拖把的零件。 

為了避免潛在的訴訟,喬伊也支付了$50,000專利權費用給一名香港男子,據稱他創建了一件類似的產品。當製作公司反覆為故障零件向喬伊開立發票,她告知魯迪及佩姬拒絕支付。特魯迪向喬伊建議把她的房子作第二按揭來支付費用。喬伊需要一個快捷且簡單的方式並能夠滿足QVC公司高層尼爾·沃克的要求來為自己的產品宣傳。在她跟尼爾會面後,他對喬伊留下深刻印象,並向她展示自己的電視購物節目,其中名人通過募捐系統出售創業者的產品。尼爾告訴喬伊要生產50,000個魔術拖把。她首個電視購物節目失敗了,但當喬伊到QVC公司宣傳產品時,喬伊跟她的產品迅即一鳴驚人。 

喬伊的產品一鳴驚人的同時,她的祖母美美突然去世了,魯迪和特魯迪送佩姬到加州處理喬伊的公司業務,佩姬後來告知喬伊指自己支付了過高的生產費用,喬伊很憤怒並前往加州跟製造商會面,製造商拒絕退回款項,她還發現製造商盜取她的專利設計。她的律師表示他們沒有甚麼辦法能防止這種情況出現,於是喬伊被迫申請破產。她並發現製造商一直騙取她整段時間來處理,她面對那公司擁有人,迫使他退回款項。 

幾年後,喬伊成為了富有的女企業家,營運一家成功的企業。她繼續照顧她父親,儘管她父親魯迪和姐姐佩姬不能成功控告她佔有公司的擁有權。她的好友積奇和前夫東尼仍然是她最看重的人生顧問,而喬伊正幫助年輕女發明家發展她們的產品理念

  1. 现今男男女女很多都抱着单身主义的,不是一定要随着一般人的步伐结婚生子。但是我总觉得有自己一个小家庭,人生才算是完满的。尤其是到老年孤独一身没个亲人陪伴照顾时就会有所感慨!不论是成家立业抑或立业成家,家和业两者都是重要的!
