Day 2 of 21. Today's choice is a dramatic movie. Saw this some years ago, but it truly left an impression on me
This is based on the true life events of Sandra Liang during Apartheid
Born to white parents, Sandra was visibly, black. The movie chronicles what happens during the course of her life
From her mother being accused of having an affair, being kicked out of her primary school that only allowed white children, to the court battle initiated by her father to have her recognized (reinstated) as white, and how she had to find her place in the world .
The lead actress, Sophie Okonedo, is such an amazing performer. If she looks familiar, she was the tribal woman in the second Ace Ventura movie, the wife in Hotel Rwanda, as well as in several other movies or tv shows (mainly in the UK). The range of emotions she portrays, you can feel what the character (Sandra) went through at any given moment
This movie gives just a glimpse of what it was like living during Apartheid. Some may see similarities with the Jim Crow era, though I'm not trying to compare, just making a possible observation
Off topic, but on topic, comedian @trevornoah has written a book "Born a Crime: Stories from a South AfricanChildhood" that also discusses growing up durning Apartheid. This shows the male perspective of what was going on at that time
It was a really good movie. Full disclosure, I love and gravitate towards dramatic movies. It is an older movie, but was done well. Some slow parts, but that's to be expected with dramas
Want a heartfelt movie, a movie that will get you thinking, see the struggles of someone other than yourself, then I recommend Skin
Also, check out some of the other things Sophie Okonedo has done. She is an amazing actress
"And then I read that private life is a stage, only I'm playing in many parts that are smaller than me, and...
Yet I still play them,
I can't exist by myself because I'm afraid of myself. Because I'm the maker of my own evil"

Another amazing release from @shoutfactory. John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness has never looked better! This is one solid, scary film and the transfer is beautiful. Also, there are some awesome new special features and killer artwork by @joelrobinsonart. Do yourself a favor and revisit this classic ASAP!
I wanted to check out Possession after watching @uptomyknees1985 rave about it in an episode of Trailers from Hell. It’s been out of print for awhile but I was able to find a copy that Mondo Visions put out a couple years ago through third party sellers. It’s fucking nuts, but it’s also brilliant. #editeverydamnday Day 210/365 🎼 @deardross
Just had a blast at the #LFCC this year!! Finally meeting Mr @davidduchovny and well at least I have a hug! The signing was a little awkward because it seems I was the first one after his talk and he was texting and I has to wait a little bit and also even he wasn't really busy I felt his team was pushing me to go (also don't letting him write 'Never give up' when I asked him) but I had the courage to tell him how #TheXfiles helped me in my life, although I don't remember well what I said so I may be babbling! So yeah not really the best experience but I get (almost) what I wanted! Then of course meeting people like @loupalm_cheg and the kinglets @silviabgn and @charleybungle!! And stalking guest on the autograph table (cause I'm poor and I can't meet them) failing to have a picture 🤣🤣
Day 2 at #LFCC didn’t get a chance to get much pictures today as spent most of the time in the signing halls getting my autographs I wanted. Managed to meet Sam Neil, Jason Mamoa, Peter Weller and Ray Park! The coolest part of today is that I got to meet @sonia.leong, she was asked by Toyota to make an Initial D style story board using an AE86 and a GT86 in celebration for an Initial D style GT86!
