What are the best quotes from the film Life Itself? The 2018 drama/romance movie shows how a single event in life can affect multiple generations. Dan Fogelman wrote and directed the movie, and Life Itself opened theatrically on September 28, 2018. The movie is filled with great quotes and dialogue, ranging from inspiring words to humorous conversations for some comical relief.

In Life Itself, Will Dempsey (Oscar Isaac) falls in love with his college crush Abby (Olivia Wilde). They get married and are about to have their first child, when a horrible accident changes every ones lives forever. One of the most powerful quotes from Life Itself comes from Abby: "Life itself tricks us. It misleads us. It paints one man a hero when he may well be a villain. Hero or a villain. Villain or a hero. Maybe the heroes and villains of our stories are actually just day players in a much bigger movie."
