I remember watching the moving Rent when I was about ten years old. I watched this movie for the first time with my older cousins. I never truly understood the point of the movie because I didn't have a mature mind. I re-watched the movie a few months ago and it all made sense. This movie is a version of the Broadway musical that has the same name. RENT is mainly about the lives of Bohemians who struggle with drug abuse, sexuality, and cross-dressing. One couple is a lesbian couple that don't really care about what people think of them although they do struggle with their relationship sometimes. Another couple is composed of two males but one of them dresses as if he were a girl. His name is Angel and his main obstacle in the movie is his battle with AIDS. The next couple is Mimi and Roger and they are in a way the main couple of the movie. Mimi is a drug addict and when things between her and Roger get rough she dives into doing drugs every day. 

This movie is a perfect representation of "live your life to the fullest" because that is truly the mentality of these people. They are very open and free in an artistic and musical way which allows them the opportunity to know what life is. No one in this movie is ashamed of who they truly are because they are happy to be themselves. These people literally tried to look at the bright side of things which is what we should all be doing today.
