KurzbeschreibungWas macht man mit einem halbwüchsigen Sohn, der nicht mehr zur Schule gehen möchte? David Gilmour schlug seinem Sohn einen ungewöhnlichen Handel vor: keine Schule, keine Verantwortung, aber drei gemeinsam geschaute Filme pro Woche, das sollte seine Ausbildung sein. Drei Filme pro Woche und sehr viele Gespräche über Freundschaft und Liebe, Familie und die Schwierigkeiten erwachsen zu werden.
BeschreibungIt was an unconventional deal: Jesse could leave school, sleep all day, not work, not pay rent - but he had to watch three films a week...of his father's choosing. Week by week, side by side, father and son watch the world's best (and occasionally worst) films - from "True Romance" to "Chungking Express", "A Hard Day's Night" to "Rosemary's Baby", "Showgirls" to "La Dolce Vita". The films get them talking - about girls, music, heartbreak, work, drugs, money, love, friendship - and they open doors to a young man's interior life at a time when parents are normally shut out. Gradually, the son develops from a chaotic teenager into a self-assured young adult, but as the film club moves towards its bittersweat and inevitable conclusion, Jesse makes a decision which surprises even his father..."The Film Club" is a book that goes straight to the heart. Honest, unsparing and poignant, it is the true story of one man's attempt to chart a course for his beloved son's rocky passage into adulthood.
KlappentextJesse didn't want to go to school anymore. After much deliberation, his father offers him an unconventional deal: he can drop out, sleep all day, not work, not pay rent, but on one condition - that he watches three films a week, of his father's choosing. What follows is an unusual journey as week by week, side by side, they watch the world's best (and occasionally worst) films - from True Romance to Chunking Express, A Hard Day's Night to Rosemary's Baby, and La Dolce Vita to Giant. The films get them talking: about girls, music, heartbreak, work, drugs, money, friendship - but they also open doors to a young man's interior life at a time when a parent is normally shut out. Gradually the father's initial worries are set aside as he watches his son morph from chaotic teenager to self-assured adult - who even starts to get up before noon. As the film club moves towards its poignant and inevitable conclusion, the young man makes a decision which surprises even his father...The Film Club is a book that goes straight to the heart. Honest, unsparing, and emotive, it follows one man's attempt to chart a course for his beloved son's rocky passage into adulthood.
