S: Hello, everyone. Welcome to today’s English-pie .I’m your friend Sunny.
R: Hi, This is Rosie.
S: Hey Rosie, I just saw an impressive film yesterday. It’s named Begin Again. How fantastic is the film. Have you ever seen it before?
R: Oh, amazing! I have heard it recently. John Carney is the director, right? I know his musical ‘Once’ received wide acclaim from the critics and audience, particularly for its original score and the actors' spontaneous performances.
S:It’s really a well-received film, starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Maroon 5 leader singer Adam Levine, the story centreson a talented young girl who suffers a setback in a cherished relationship. She meets amiddle-aged man, who is undergoing a bit of crisis of his own, but happens to be a gifted/music producer. The man recognizes her musical talent, and convinces her to record an album.
R: I feel I can figure out the ending of the movie. The recording process helped the troubled characters walk out of the shadow to begin a new chapter of their lives. That's what chick flicks do, they try to highlight the positive side of life and make viewers feel good.
S: Yeah you’re right , I really like this story about love and music dream. It told me that we should never lose heart with our life, the god will send us surprise gifts whatever happened in the past.
R: That’s true. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, and whoever will belong to us in later time. However, we ought to enjoy our lifetime, look forward to love, and cherish every opportunity.
S: Well said. Moreover, there is a song from the movie named ‘LOST STARS’ is very worth listening. Let's enjoy it.
R: Wo-oh, such a beautiful song, it seemed that the lyrics remained me of the love between Greta and Dan again. So I think about another movie which released recently. I’m concerned that it’s similar to ‘Begin Again’,
S: Really! So what’s that?
R: I don’t know if you have watched it, the movie is ‘Mr. Right ---Book of love’.
S: Sure I know it. One thousand missing, but it will return a love at first sight. It sounds like a romantic and impressive love story, right? Cause …… I haven’t seen it actually. Why not share the details about the movie?
R: Ok, I’d love to. The story took place in the male leading role Daniel and the heroine Miss. Jiao. Through the book named ’84 Charing Cross Road’’, they contracted each other by means of letter writing. They became friends from strangers.
S: Don’t tell me they fell in love with each other just by the several letters. They even haven’t seen each other.
R: No, no, no. A romantic story can’t be so easy. During the period of writing, Daniel had two girlfriends, unfortunately he has been hurt by love twice, it is because that Daniel doesn’t believe in anyone any longer and he will not trust there is eternal love between man and woman.
S: From your words I can see Daniel is a rational person, or he is a cold fish. And ……what about Miss. Jiao ?
R: Yeah you got my words. Miss. Jiao!? I have to say she is really an innocent girl, in other words, she even doesn’t know what is love , how to choose the right one, and how to love! So the poor girl received the three feeling hurt.
S: Oh bad news! But I think they will realize who the right one is for their each other by the heartbreaking loves.
R: Yep, but unluckily another bad news came to us. They can not receive the letters from each other.
S: Why this happened? They change their addresses?
R: No, because the boss of bookstore on the 84 Charing cross road passed away, and they lost the letter delivery man, then they lost contract. But you know what, they passed in Las Vegas, in London for many times, I have thought that they would not meet.
S: But they did it, there is a happy ending. Daniel and Miss. Jiao met at last, am I right?
R: Yes they identified each other in the bookstore, the last place where they thought they can find each other.
S:OMG, it’s really an artistic love story, Daniel and Jiao looking for each other in London is more like a tour of finding their own soul mate, even though they had no idea about the face, the job, the identities and so on, all that doesn’t matter, they just know they attract and love each other.
R: That’s it, so I was deeply moved by them. Maybe that is the so-called Platonic love. I think everyone might look forward to the love that has nothing to do with reality and substance, at least I am.
S: Sure, there is no one does not expect eternal love. You know, find a soul mate is more like to find the other half of yourself, although is not easy, we do can find it.
R: It definitely can’t go wrong. We can see it by the old couple in this movie. Their love for each other will never stop until the end of the life. The grandpa didn’t give a wedding to grandma, so they made it in the church in Las Vegas when they are more than eighty years old, and nobody thinks it was late.
S: That’s right, I watched that fragment, it made me impressive and deeply moved. Grandpa said lots of bad habits of grandma, such as: you’re timid, you’re stupid and lazy, and you like to cry and so on. And grandpa also said that darling don’t worry, no matter how annoying you, I never abandon you. They are soul mate for each other, and I firmly believe that is true love.
R: I can’t agree more. The old couple is lucky enough to find each other, also they are smart enough to know how to cherish the right person. So we need to know that we surely can meet our own soul mate, and it will be the biggest lucky in our life, then we are supposed to cherish the person who you decided to be with , in your whole life.
S: Yeah. So whether you are going to be through the music or letters, do believe you can have your own love story , even there will be a thousand missing.
R: Indeed is this, you should get that all your missing and waiting do have their meanings, maybe don’t always find, learn to wait for, can be helpful. Ok finally, I wanna say wish every single of you can wait for your soul mate in your best years.
S: Including us !
R: Sure. I’ve been looking forward to that.
S: Me too. However, It’s just time to say goodbye, that’s all for today’s English-pie, hope you guys will enjoy it. This is today’s broadcaster Sunny 郝张瑶
