Rebellious at about ten years old a stayed up all night watching Channel five's Movies Till Dawn! The Norming of Jack 243 was on it and I was riveted! A controlled society where everyone has to go into a "norming chamber" every so often just so they don't get any ideas. Don't stray too far from normal. Wonderful! Our hero, Jack, finds the back door of the enclosed living environment and sneaks out and meets people outside. People who dance and sing and live and are full of life! One eats an apple in front of him. He reacts disgusted, as if they are making numero dos. I remember being AMAZED at this. I was ten. She convinces him that there is joy in eating in front of one another and of course, she shares the apple with him.
He can gain no converts on the inside, even among his wife and best friends. Soon the police are trying to shove him into a norming chamber and he is scrambling now for his very life.
I will not spoil the end for you but it is so good I have remembered it my entire life and I WANT TO SEE THIS FILM AGAIN! email me: firstname.lastname@example.org if you know where I can buy it.
