3º – Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, 2015)We’ll enter the lives of Greg, a creative teenager focused on spending school time without standing out from the crowd, his friend Earl, a kind of mirror of his friend’s constructs, and Rachel, a teenager who had recently discovered cancer. The film has an assertive rhythm, exploring each nuance of adolescence in the American context, separating its story into two distinct strands, one joyful and the other dealing with the pain of certain facts of the plot.
2º – Fruitvale Station (Ryan Coogler, 2013)We will spend some time following the daily life of a young black man before a tragic event in his life. Based on a recent actual event, ‘Fruitvale Station’ is a film that is not recommended for all audiences, given its sad and discouraging compendium. However, this work also presents an accurate view of the veiled presence of racism in an American society.
1º – Schindler’s List (Steven Spielberg, 1993)After witnessing the persecutions of the Jews by the Nazis in World War II, a businessman ends up facing moral dilemmas about the right thing to do about the situation and the consequences that eventual acts could cause for his safety. Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece is one of the best films about an exacerbated historical period of the 20th century.
