Before Sunrise 愛在黎明破曉時 (Richard Linklater)

中英韓泰文字幕,英文發音,101 min.


Before Sunrise is romance for the slacker generation. Richard Linklater's romantic drama is an offbeat telling of a dream come true for most people. The film depicts romance in all it's glory, but without any of the pitfalls that befall most couples; and in short the film is about two people that have a relationship that's as close to perfection as relationships will ever come to - with just one problem, the problem of time. While most relationships wind down with time, this one keeps going strong throughout and time itself is the only thing that wears out. Before Sunrise is certainly not the typical sentimental 'Hollywood romance', which is another aspect that puts this film leagues ahead of the pretenders. The story follows two people, Jesse; an American and Celine; a French girl that meet on a train into Vienna. They instantly connect, and after telling her his awful idea for a television show and almost getting off the train, Jesse asks Celine to join him for the day in the picturesque city of Vienna.
Before Sunset 愛在日落巴黎時 (Richard Linklater)

中英西葡韓泰印尼文字幕,英葡文發音,82 min.


Not a movie but life. Amazingly simple and deep! They were in love 9 years ago. Now when they've met again, there's a lot to remember and tell each other. Jess (Ethan Hawke) is already married and more – he's a father and Celine's dating a guy she really loves who's fortunately out of town right now. At least this is what they tell each other. You see, some parts are really left to our imagination. Perhaps Celine's just trying to prove she's a strong girl to live without Jess saying she has had many lovers after him and each of them after getting married said "thank you" to her for "teaching love" as she says. Perhaps Jess lies either about kids but his marriage and Julie's new love are probably true. The question is could they refuse all that for each other.

The Great Debaters

791.43 / W317

Inspired by real events, the fascinating The Great Debaters reveals one of the seeds of the Civil Rights Movement in its story of Melvin B. Tolson (Denzel Washington in a captivating performance) and his champion 1935 debate club from the all-African-American Wiley College in Texas. Tolson, a Wiley professor, labor organizer, modernist poet, and much else, runs a rigorous debate program at the school, selecting four students as his team in ’35, among them the future founder of the Congress of Racial Equality, James Farmer Jr. (Denzel Whitaker). Washington, who directed The Great Debaters from a script by Robert Eisele (The Dale Earnhardt Story), anchors the story with the team’s measurable progress, but the film is also about the state of race relations in America at the height of the Great Depression.    From Amazon   <http://www.amazon.com/Great-Debaters-Denzel-Washington/dp/B00125WAWS>
