Australian cultural programs
Last week, I had at least 2 very Australian cultural programs, as I went both to the theatre and cinema.
The play I watch was a very strange adaptation of the Peter Pan story. It was interesting to challenge my world view, but I didn’t really like it, as it was quite aggressive and odd (in my perspective).
The movie, on the other hand, was very, very good. It’s called 2:37 and it talks about many issues faced by teenagers: homosexuality, sexual harassment, anorexia, drugs, relationships and suicide. As I said, it’s very good, but also very heavy. I went with Sid, my Indian friend, and arrived home kind of speechless. Alex (my flat mate) talked to me for about 40 minutes or so, until I was recovered. More about the movie at http://www.smh.com.au/news/film-reviews/237/2006/08/16/1155407887243.html.
