Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each of us is a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?

The Matrix (1999) - directed by The Wachowski Brothers. Starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Ann Moss and Hugo Weaving.
