Help me decide, TOWELHEAD vs LAKEVIEW TERRACE
Folks, I have a decision to make... your help is appreciated...
Next Tuesday, September 16th. I've been invited to watch two movies, I'm more inclined towards watching Towelhead. I wonder if my readers can help me decide.
To help you, here are quick notes about the two, let me know what you think
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Alicia Erian and written for the screen and directed by Alan Ball (creator of HBO's "Six Feet Under" and Oscar® winner for Best Original Screenplay for AMERICAN BEAUTY), TOWELHEAD stars Aaron Eckhart (THE DARK KNIGHT), Toni Collette, Maria Bello, Peter Macdissi, and newcomer Summer Bishil.
Jasira wants something she can't define; attention, love, acceptance or a normal life. Unfortunately she doesn't know the right way to find it. When Jasira's mother exiles her to Houston to live with her strict, quick-to-anger Lebanese father, she quickly learns what aspects of herself to suppress in front of him. In private, however, she conducts her sexual awakening with all the false confidence that pop culture and her neighbor's magazines have provided. The result is a funny, dark, bold and harrowing look at the confusion and misguided exploration of youth in America's track houses, public schools and suburban wastelands
A young couple (Patrick Wilson and Kerry Washington) has just moved into their California dream home when they become the target of their next-door neighbor, who disapproves of their interracial relationship. A stern, single father, this tightly wound LAPD officer (Samuel L. Jackson) has appointed himself the watchdog of the neighborhood. His nightly foot patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort to some, but he becomes increasingly harassing to the newlyweds. These persistent intrusions into their lives ultimately turn tragic when the couple decides to fight back.
Now the reason I want to watch Towelhead is mainly because of it's relation to my culture, and the acclaimed novel by Alicia Erian. Even the name itself feels offensive a bit. But let's wait and see before we judge. The father looks exactly like my cousin.
As for Lakeview Terrace, I want to see it because of the interracial controversy behind it. So it might be very interesting as well
The sad part, they're on the same day, same time
Will you help me decide?
