Sweet Charity (1969)

Charity Hope Valentine. Has there ever been a character so aptly named?

She gives and gives unconditionally.

She spends her life believing in better possibilities.

She is genuinely a martyr for love.

But for all these rare and beautiful qualities, is she merely naive, immature and deluded, living out her life with unrealistic fantasies? Or is she the embodiment of everything we all really want to be?

Most of us believe that “there’s gotta be something better than this” in our lives and we deserve to be loved, appreciated and not humiliated. Maybe we can all live hopefully ever after.
