Tacoma to Alabama via Huston (take 2)

ahaha! I remembered what I was going to post about...I'm so proud of myself...

Two great movies you guys have to see:
Sweet Land is a beautiful movie about a mail-order bride. She comes to america after WWI only to have her fiancee discover her German heritage. Together, they battle all the distrust and prejudice against Germans, while falling in love. PG (2005)


The Great Debaters is still in theatres, it came out on Christmas Day. It is the story of the Wiley College Debate team, in 1935 in Marshall, Texas. The story follows the team, but also dives into each of the members lives, show just what it was like to be a black teenager in the south in 1935. Their goal is to debate the white college of Harvard, and in order to do that, they must win against the two most prestigeous black colleges. I highly recommend this film, not only because it's about debate, but because of the powerful way each of the characters is portrayed and the problems they must face. PG-13 (In theatres)
