Stolen Life (Sheng si jie)


A young girl's lonely life seems to be looking up when she's accepted by a university, but her joy is short-lived. Having been raised by indifferent relatives in Beijing, naive freshman Yan'ni (Xun Zhou) finds it hard to resist when a charming deliveryman starts to pay attention to her. But she's soon on a downward spiral, as she becomes pregnant, drops out of school and ends up living in her lover's drab room. - Netflix


Stolen Life is fast paced and engaging right from the start.  I had how it was going to end but it has nice unexpected little twist in the end.  Chinese films are so rich and full of depth and this is no exception.  It's a very modern story with a very modern style.  China feels so foreign to us in America but this somehow makes the distance seems thinner.


Goes to show you, there is love, disappointment and heartache no matter where you come from.

I am looking forward to this one!  I grew up listening and loving Janis Joplin.  For a minute there I though Lindsay Lohan was going to play Joplin.  Phew.  I think I might have had to boycott the film if she had.

Although, being a fan of Zooey Deschanel I could have been just as happy to have watched her in the role of Janis Joplin as much as Nina Arianda.

Any how it's about time!

James Franco: Girls and Gatz

I like Franco more and more (maybe even love.)  Who doesn't love Girls or The Great Gatsby?

Did you know there is a new film coming out starring DiCaprio - The Great Gatsby?

First, watch the original if you haven't already seen it.  It's one of my favorites and if you have Prime you can watch it now for FREE.

:)
