Chad Michael Murray,
A Latina spin on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," where two spoiled sisters who have been left penniless after their father's sudden death are forced to move in with their estranged aunt in East Los Angeles.
In 1943, inventor Nikola Tesla died penniless in the New Yorker Hotel. Within 24 hours the U.S. government seized everything in his room. But one design was missing. 70 years later in Buffalo, NY, a brilliant young engineer has found it.
The story follows three young men who are willing to do anything to reach their dreams, even to prostitute themselves to gain money for the bussines they want. They obviously get themselves into trouble and various funny situations.
THE GIRL KING paints a portrait of the brilliant, extravagant Kristina of Sweden, queen from age six, who fights the conservative forces that are against her ideas to modernize Sweden and who have no tolerance for her awakening sexuality.
This is a visual feast and a wonderful film. I drifted into the cinema accidentally while on holiday in Buenos Aires and was enchanted to be taken on an exquisite sensual and almost spiritual journey where the acting is precise and almost theatre like, allowing you to taste each word like a rich delicate patisserie. The decor, colour, texture and mood is so captivating that you are plunged into Amapola's world and it is a little difficult to re-adjust to drab normality after wards. This is what I have always wanted in great cinema making: a subtle story, visual enchantment, layered and intricate detail and a glimpse of another reality.
