Dear Jing Jing
Did you enjoy the first movie which Daddy and Mummy brought you to see last nite? It was “Body of Lies” acted by 2 of whom I considered to be the best actors in Hollywood – Leonardo di Caprio and Russell Crowe (who’s also a Oscar winner I think).
Your daddy enjoyed the show very much cos he could relate to it. Guess it’s a man’s world – espionage, violence, intelligence. For me, I enjoyed the acting. I thought Russell Crowe was great as the #$%%&* intelligence boss – he’s such a natural in blending into the role which he plays, though I must say he has put on tremendous weight. Leonardo tries his best to look Arab and act mature. And I’ll give it to him for being as convincing as he tries to be. Who could blame him for having a boyish face? I gave him credit for not staying the pretty boy.
And what feelings did I have after the movie? The Americans have half the blame on themselves for making the world a scarier place to live in. Who’d ask them to cultivate terrorists and the guys who feeds from them return to bite the hand?
I hope the world will be a more peaceful place in your era. It’s still beautiful though we live in tumultous times now.
