Empire of the Sun Reviews
this movie is AWESOMETACULAR
"Steven Spielberg's acclaimed account of an English boy's life in a WWII internment camp in Japanese-occupied China.
Christian Bale, John Malkovich"
American, capitalism uncaged, for whom the war is primarily an opportunity for gain. Richardson is a British socialite, forced against her will to look at real life and none too happy about it. And Bale, the star, is a Brit of privilege too, but barely manages to make do. This piece had two things against it as I went in, Spielberg and Bale, but both rise above their comfort zones to deliver an exceptional story.
A harrowing coming of age tale of life during World War 2 occupation and all the nightmares that entails. If you haven't seen it, I do recommend it.
