Do you think the approaching winter vacation made us lazy? NO way!
We have already travelled to Mars with Elon Musk. Now comes the time for us to conquer Hollywood! 🙂
We cannot lie: we didn’t know either of the songs, and we had never heard of the Doors before.
First, we discussed the feelings that the songs evoke, then we read and discussed the lyrics and saw how they matched the tune. Finally, our teacher told us to invent a movie story that would begin with the Riders on the Storm in the background and end with Here Comes the Sun.
It wasn’t easy. Some of us were quite playful already (remember it was almost winter vacation), so they didn’t give the story much thought and wanted to goof around, but our more focused pals helped us to concentrate.
So here’s our PG 13 Oscar-winning movie (all rights reserved!):
A family (father, mother, a 16-year-old daughter) are going somewhere by car. There’s a storm. It is raining and it’s very windy. Suddenly, the father loses control of the car and it rolls over. The parents die. The daughter survives. A boy who is the same age as the daughter, and who’s been walking his dog, sees the accident and helps the girl. He calls the emergency, and it transports the girl to hospital. After some time, the teenager visits her in the hospital. She is really grateful. He also brings her some sweets and a small pillow that he found near the accident scene. As it turns out, it’s her favorite pillow. There are some more visits in the hospital, the two fall in love, and when she is finally able to get up, they go to the hospital park. As they are walking, we can hear “Here Comes the Sun”.
Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese, feel free to get in touch! 🙂
