“I went through puberty late. When I was in high school I easily got irritated by parents. However, my high school friends frequently stopped me from doing so.”
“How did they stop you?”
“They told me I shouldn’t act that way towards my parents, and they would send apology messages to my parents on my phone instead of me. At that time I really hated sending my parents messages. However, as my friends continued to influence my actions, I changed. Now I’m very close with my parents. My high school friends have greatly changed my life.”

"제가 사춘기가 늦게 와서 전 고등학교 때 부모님한테 막 짜증내고 그랬는데, 고등학교 친구들이 옆에서 많이 잡아줬어요."
"어떻게 잡아줬어요?"
"부모님한테 그러면 안 된다면서, 저 대신 제 핸드폰으로 부모님께 사과 문자 보내드렸어요. 그 때 전 정말 부모님한테 문자하는 거 싫어했거든요. 하지만 친구들한테 계속 영향을 받고 변해서 지금은 부모님과 정말 살갑게 지내요. 고등학교 친구들이 제 인생을 많이 바꿔놨어요."

“However small we are, we should always fight for what we believe to be right. And I don’t mean fight with the power of our fists or the power of our swords…I mean the power of our brains and our thoughts and our dreams.

"And as small and quiet and unimportant as our fighting may look, perhaps we might all work together…and break out of the prisons of our own making. Perhaps we might be able to keep this fierce and beautiful world of ours as free for all of us as it seemed to be on that blue afternoon of my childhood.”

Mélanie Laurent as Shosanna reading and smoking in Inglourious Basterds (2009).

Most and best of all there’s the luminous Mélanie Laurent as Shoshanna, running a cinema in German-occupied Paris. A German war hero tries to court her (she’s repulsed) by convincing Goebbels they should premiere the fictional version of the war hero’s story at Shoshanna’s movie house. When Hitler himself decides he’ll attend the premiere, Shoshanna and Aldo launch separate and equally insane schemes to turn that premiere into a night the Nazis will never forget—-that is, if any of them survive.
