這段影片是半年前美國演員伊森霍克（Ethan Hawke）為了宣傳電影 First Reformed 去上「史蒂芬柯貝爾深夜秀」（The Late Show with Stephen Colbert）的一段訪談。當中他提及一段往事，多年前他曾應邀參加在倫敦環球劇場（Global Theatre）舉辦的一場義演活動。當時負責安排節目活動的人請伊森表演莎劇《哈姆雷特》（Hamlet）最有名的獨白 To be or not to be，不過在他的前面和後面表演的凡妮莎蕾格烈芙（Vanessa Redgrave）和保羅史考菲（Paul Scofield）都是比他還要資深的演員。繼續閱讀 “年尾來個勵志小故事"
最近看了一部電影名叫 First Reformed ，是由伊森霍克（Ethan Hawke）及亞曼達賽佛瑞（Amanda Seyfried）演出。這部電影好像沒排上院線，在串流平台上的片名翻譯得有點奇怪（「首次自新」是甚麼意思？看完了也想不出甚麼為什麼要翻成這樣），但這個片名其實是故事中伊森霍克飾演的托勒牧師（Rev. Toller）所主持的那間教會的名字，是一間沒甚麼會眾、比較像是觀光景點的沒落教會。（故事中的「第一歸正教會」First Reformed Church 說是位於紐約州首府阿伯尼 Albany附近。不過查了一下，導演實際上借用了位於皇后區道格拉斯頓的「錫安聖公會」（Zion Episcopal Church）來拍攝。）繼續閱讀 “First Reformed"
Based on the trailer it seems to be worth watching. There’s Ethan Hawke, and the duo from Ender’s Game again, Asa Butterfield and Hailee Steinfeld. They look great to be a couple. I’m going to read the novel…soon. Hope the library texts me soon.
This interview is a great, I think I am like the host, watching “Before Sunrise" at 19, then “Sunset" came out when I was 27, 28, and then, at the age of 36, 37 I watched “Before Midnight." It’s amazing that the entire cast, director, audience, everyone grows with the characters. I don’t know if they would like to have another “Before," or maybe like some people said, Richard and Ethan have made a prequel by “Boyhood."
When I first knew the movie was shooting/finished shooting last year, I was surprised but also happy that we can see the lovely couple again. Finally, the movie is in theater, but it takes me a while to adjust myself to the mood of a movie-goer, as that part of me has been left aside since I left school. 繼續閱讀 “Truth about Happy Ever After: Before Midnight (愛在午夜希臘時)"
