A korean movie Sunny was publicized in May, 2011.
Starring not many of famous actors, or very beautiful ones, the movie itself did not attract much interest beforehand such as the 4th episode of The Pirates of the Caribbean. However, the reviews were beyond expectations.
Sunny is the name for a group of 7 girls gathered under the name of “friendship”. The movie simultaneously displays modern lives of those seven girls as grown-up women along with flashbacks of their high school memories. This movie is not one of those modern-technology, nerve-wrecking, Hollywood-scale films. Nor is it revolved around the truth of one’s birth, a triangle romance, or some ridiculously rich and handsome guy falling for the ugliest and most unattractive girl. The plot itself is very typical, daily-life, and on a rather small scale. However, there is much more than just laughing at the hilarious jokes the actors make. This movie is one of those rare movies where one can laugh their belly out and cry their souls out at the same time. Although the actors provide the audience with endless laughs at their comical acting, most of the people leave the theatre with tears in their eyes. What is so great about this movie?
First and foremost, friendship. These days, friends have a very broad range of various definitions. To some, friends are someone to talk to in school. To some, they are who study with you or play sports with you. To others, they are just targets to talk bad about. But to others, like in the movie, friends are everything; if someone hurts your friend, you are hurt as well. School meant friends and friends meant their happiness and sadness. As you watch the movie, it would be inevitable for you to think of your own friends. Next, it sends a message of how important oneself is in his own life. The main character, is lost in her life supporting her husband and daughter until she meets her old friends again. If one knows what true happiness, love, and emotions are, then one’s life begins to bloom. One of the most significant quotes in the movie was “You are the star of your life”. Apart from such main messages, there are also many trivial entertainments that are memorable such as the comical fashions, dancings, the first love of a teenage girl, and the feisty language the actors use.
This movie, with all guaranteed, is most certainly recommended to be watched, especially to those in high school right now. One would realize how to spend their high school life most valuably.
