365 day movie challenge | 38. Gran Torino (2008) ★★★★☆
“Oh, I’ve got one. A Mexican, a Jew, and a colored guy go into a bar. The bartender looks up and says, ‘Get the fuck out of here.’”
Walt Kowalski is a widower who holds onto his prejudices despite the changes in his Michigan neighborhood and the world around him. Kowalski is a grumpy, tough-minded, unhappy old man who can’t get along with either his kids or his neighbors. He is a Korean War veteran whose prize possession is a 1972 Gran Torino he keeps in mint condition. When his neighbor Thao, a young Hmong teenager under pressure from his gang member cousin, tries to steal his Gran Torino, Kowalski sets out to reform the youth. Drawn against his will into the life of Thao’s family, Kowalski is soon taking steps to protect them from the gangs that infest their neighborhood.
My thoughts; So we watched this movie in my film comp class and it was so fantastic. I literally cried in class at the end! Clint Eastwood is an amazing person, and this is a movie that everyone should know and see. The acting was a little bad, probably because English may not have been a lot of the Hmong actors’ first language, but it hardly takes anything away from the movie.
