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.

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.
