PROCRASTINATION AND A MOVIE

SCHOOL STARTS IN 1 1/2 DAYS AND I HAVEN’T FINISHED MOST OF MY HOMEWORK SO OBVIOUSLY I RESOLVE THIS ISSUE WITH WATCHING A MOVIE

I watched this German movie called Lore because it had a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is described like this ‘Left to fend for themselves after their SS officer father and mother, a staunch Nazi believer, are interred by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a harrowing journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents’ actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing journey across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting thecharismatic Thomas, a mysterious young refugee, Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact. (c) Music Box’ So I thought it would be  a nice art house movie about German kids on the road and a German girl falling in love with a cute Jewish boy (◕‿◕✿) BUT NO it’s SAD FULL OF SADNESS AND DEATH AND VIOLENCE AND RAPE OH GOD this poor girl had to see death and take care of a tiny baby and younger sister and twin brothers that were like 5 and live in the wilderness and go through so much shit and what’s most horrible is that it’s really believable and nazi kids after the war were left alone I REALLY HOPE I WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE WAR IN MY LIFETIME because how on earth would I travel across Germany with my 3 younger siblings?? We can’t even get through dinner or a car ride without fighting!! oh and the actress who played the girl was really good! This movie was so good so good but really really sad.

CURRENT OBSESSIONS

1) Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella 

a) THE 1997 VERSION I only JUST discovered 

ImageWhitney Houston! Bernadette Peters! Whoopi Goldberg! Racial diversity! (Cinderella is black and the Prince is Filipino) AND it contains magical lines like this:

Cinderella: I doubt he has any idea how a girl should be treated 

Prince: Like a princess, I suppose

Cinderella: No, like a person with kindness and respect.

OHHHHHH 

b) The current Broadway one!
