Splendor in the Grass

I supposed to talk now on pontiac accessories, however I realized, it’s more interesting to talk about love, sex and heart break. Hehe. I believe car parts accessories are always there, they wouldn’t run except the car itself. LOL. But being emo, changes. Mood change. So I better stick on my emo mode today. Just bare with me. Smiley
Lately, I haven’t been emo-ing in my room with all those emo movies. I missed having movie marathon. And one movie which I am really dying to watch now is the Splendor in the Grass. Believe it or not, I just settled for movie reviews in more than an hour browsing over the internet to have an overview of this movie.
Splendor in the Grass is actually an American film released in 1961. See? Look how oldie this movie is? But I am still looking for a copy. Hehe. I really want to watch this movie because of its theme – love, sex and heart break. Emo, isn’t it? Smiley This movie was directed by Elia Kazan. And this actually won the Academy Award for the Best Writing, Best Story and Screenplay. Oh yeah! These awards convinced me to have a copy of this film real soon. Smiley Here’s more, the leas actress, Natalie Wood, was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Though I didn’t know who she is, I might Google her more.

The movie was success as it managed to find itself in Entertainment Weekly’s list of 50 Best High School Movies. Splendor in the Grass

However, in our Family and Community Medicine class, we were tasked to watch Philadelphia. Though I am a big fan of Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington, I haven’t watched this film yet. But I guess I have to now. LOL! If not a required movie, why would I watch it then? Hehe. The film talks on HIV and homosexuality and more related to it. We are actually required to make a reflection paper about the film. Haha. So I guess, Splendor in the Grass might be set aside for now, Philadelphia here I come. Hehe.
