So as some of you know, I don't have cable so I always use my netflix. Anyway, I netflixed this movie based on the description. It sounded interesting, it's called "hula girls" and it's about these girls who leave japan for hawaii to become hula dancers to support their families when a local coal mine closes.

Well, I got the movie in the mail today and it thought, "yay! I can finally watch this!" Well, it's all in japanese! Lmfao it's subtitled which is good, but I didn't realize it was in japanese haha I watch subtitled/foreign films often, but I'm usually expecting them to be subtitled. I guess I should've paid attention to what I was reading. I'm not disappointed at all though. So far this is a good movie and I really like the story of this one girl in particular. She desperately wants to help her family survive and begs her best friend to go with her. It's so sweet! They're more like sisters and they meet a new girl who's tall like a basketball player who's raised her single father (her mom was gone).

Anyway, I'm just rambling now... Trying to distract myself from stress.

Awww sounds like a good movie, but I can't stand reading subtitles through a whole movie :-(

Haha it wasn't that bad. But I think I've gotten so used to reading subtitles, that I don't even notice it anymore. It's like a 2nd nature to me now after having watched and owned so many. I can't even remember the first subtitled movie I saw at this point.

I had a similar experience with the movie "Ben X". It's about a boy with Asperger's Syndrome (which my ds has) and his struggle to overcome bullies. Anyway I went to watch it and it was all ina  foreign language but it did have subtitles lol! I still enjoyed it though!
