Movie: Foreign Letters

Sunday, May 05, 2013, 02:00pm - 04:00pm

A bittersweet coming-of-age film set in the pre-email era of the 1980s, Foreign Letters is itself a love letter to the unshakeable bond between friends. Young Ellie, newly arrived to the US from Israel, waits anxiously for letters from her best friend back home. She suffers from homesickness, language difficulties and rejection at school but life brightens when she meets Thuy, a Vietnamese refugee her age. As the two bond and become inseparable, they eventually hurt each other and Ellie must find a way to restore their trust. The film is based on director Ela Thier's personal immigration experience. Foreign Letters is a film about poverty, prejudice, shame, and the healing power of friendship.

Quotes About Libraries

A public library is the most enduring of memorials, the trustiest monument for the preservation of an event or a name or an affection; for it, and it only, is respected by wars and revolutions, and survives them.
