Movie Info

Writer-director Sophia Turkiewicz based Silver City on her experiences as a young child, when her parents moved from post-World War II Poland to settle in a migrant hostel in western Australia's Polish community. Nina (Gosia Dobrowolska) is a young refugee who wants to be a teacher. She meets Julian (Ivor Kants), a young law student, and the two fall in love. The problem is Julian is already married, but he leaves his wife (Anna Jemison) for Nina. However, when Julian's wife announces she is pregnant, Julian abandons Nina and returns to her. Nina is then forced to go it alone in a new and strange country. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Silver City

[font=Franklin Gothic Medium][size=3]"Silver City" flew over my head. I liked Sayles' "Sunshine State," especially Timothy Hutton and Edie Falco's scenes, but didn't get this one. [/size][/font] [size=3]I saw it at a matinee. The audience members got it; they laughed almost too hard at the jokes. [/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]Now that I can't afford leisure time, Netflix offers me another discount with promises of improved service. I subscribed since I felt suffocated by ... well, boring story. "The United States of Leland," "Twister" (the Tim Robbins one) and political documentary "The Party's Over." But I did subscribe, the DVDs arrived on time, and they're sitting, unwatched, in my apartment. Timing can make a situation better or worse.[/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]On a non-film note: [/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]Am reading "Caleb Williams" in class. I enjoy William Godwin's prose. It flows easy and goes down easy, especially after the long Butler essay. The class discussions merit another entry, which I won't indulge.[/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]I re-read Rowlandson for the American Lit class, although I apparently read it last year in American History. I guess I didn't pay much attention to words on the page last year, among other things, or everything. [/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]I think I'm getting far-sighted. Although this gives me the false mark of an intellectual -- or of a prematurely-aged person -- I need to take better care of my eyesight. Seriously.[/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]Looking forward to a productive weekend, hopefully balanced with DVD-viewing and my Sims. And hoping my sad, sad self can keep me in check. The oxymoron is that my sad self is a happier one, or at least more evasive. I feel like I sidestep stuff more often. [/size] [size=3][/size] [size=3]I'll buy the brunette Bitty twins someday.[/size]
