…now that I’m officially done with this semester of school I feel like I can actually step away from mi Espanol libro y classe and see what else is happening around me. I have a long over-due date with free-time.
Me: “Hello world, how ya’ doing?”
World: “I’m great, Neve, thanks. I’ve missed you though.”
Me: “Yes. I know. I’ve missed you too. How can I make it up to you, baby?”
World: “I’ll think of something.”
Me: “Sounds intriguing. Should I come over?”
My social life has suffered greatly because of my heavy work load these past few months, but I’m ready to get back into the social saddle and hopefully spend some of this extra free time by reading, writing and catching some fabulous flicks this summer, like these two gems below that I’m currently re-arranging my new free-time schedule around so I can see them:
Gigante: Uruguay/Argentina/Germany/Spain, 2009, Adrián Biniez -
While working his usual night shift, a shy, lonely, 35-year-old supermarket security guard falls for a 25-year-old cleaning woman he spots on a store surveillance camera. He continues to watch and follow her—at the store, to the cinema, to the beach, even when she’s on a date with another man. But will he ever speak to her? This unpretentious gem won three major awards at the 2009 Berlin Film Festival.
Britain, 2009, Jon Amiel-
Real-life couple Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly play Mr. and Mrs. Charles Darwin in “CREATION”, a new period drama by British director Jon Amiel (The Singing Detective, Sommersby). In the movie the famed naturalist tries to strike a balance between his revolutionary theories on evolution and the relationship with his devoutly religious wife, who doesn’t share his beliefs.
