Certainly we know from our own experience how very difficult it is when you've lost an election that perhaps a lot of people were expecting you to win.
I used to do bell ringing in Benenden church. It was really good fun, actually. My best friend's dad was the local vicar, and so it was expected as her best friend that I would go to church every Sunday with her.
In life and in movies, it's a similar challenge, where you have expectations, and you end up in situations that are not meeting your expectations.
One of the things that I find so exciting about life is that you're constantly surprised. You never know what's going to happen, and it's certainly like that making movies; every once in a while, one will come along that transcends all of your expectations.
