【英语口语】美语情景对话 第17期:经典电影 Good Movie
Todd: OK. Jamie, We’re going to talk about movies.
Jamie: OK, Great!
Todd: What is your favorite movie?
Jamie: My favorite movie is kind of a heavy movie. It’s a called Sophie’s Choice with MerrylStreep and Kevin Cline.
Jamie: It’s a, it’s a movie, it’s set in World War II. Meryll Streep plays a Polish woman who hascome to America and she’s met a man, Kevin Kline, who has a series of problems of his own, mostly psychological, which she is not 100 percent aware of and she does a bunch of sceneswhere she thinks of the past and the very difficult decision she had while, during the war, livingin Poland, she had to decide between two children, which one would be murdered by the Nazis, and which one wouldn’t, and it’s an ethical delimma she faced at that time, and she made andimmediate decision on, and affected her the rest of her life.
Jamie: It’s a fantastic movie, not the story in itself, of course the story was brilliant, but theacting, the fact that she speaks Polish, she speaks German, She speaks English with a Polishaccent, which is amazing, a writer who is actually a narrator in the movie as well, his characteris great. Kevin Kline is a basically a psycho character. He is a little bit deranged in itself is prettyneat. So, all in all, the characters, the plot line, the movie, it’s fanatasic.
Todd: OK. Great. Sophie’s Choice.
Jamie: Sophie’s Choice. I think it actually won an academy award in 1985 or 84.
Todd: OK. Great. Thanks a lot.
Jamie: My pleasure.
