Thanks to eTV and O Shucks I’m Gatvol, I have a very tired and cranky almost-11 year old this morning!
Luke’s bedtime is at 9 PM. Last night we started watching the movie and when it got to bed time he begged and pleaded to watch just a little more. And then just a little more and then some.
Eventually I caved (bad parenting I know) and by the end of the movie we were both crying. After I managed to calm Luke down, he said that he wanted to write Mr Schuster a letter:
Dear Mr Schuster
Thank you so so very much for your wonderful movie. I wish we could see more movies like this one. Even if it made me very sad, I really enjoyed it. It made me cry but I laughed more, the farting guy in the plane was the best prank ever! I also wanted to move to Australia and even support their rugby just because our country is sometimes a very ugly place with a lot of hate and fighting. But you made me remember me that this is still the most perfect place in the whole world. Because of your movie I remember why I love South Africa. I love your movie and will buy the next one you make.
There you have it folks, through the eyes of a child. South Africa is not so bad after all, just stop and smell the roses from time to time!
