The film Gran Torino, directed by Clint Eastwood, is about an old man named Walt. After the loss if his wife and barely any contact with his son, Walt decides to take on the korean family that lives next door. Their son, Thao Vang Lor tries to steal Walts Gran Torino for his cousin,spider, who is in a gang. In return for the accident that Thao had made, he started working for Walt doing any spare chores that be may have. Over time Thao and Walt become very close with one another, so close that Walt gives his life to save Thaos family from the gang.
My favourite character i Sue, Thaos older sister brings a lot of joy to Walt and is always making sure he is happy. If it wasn't for sue, Walt would never have become close with the Vang Lor family. Sue has a very strong personality and shows no fear, even when others would.
A scene that i quite like is where Sue has a date, and they are walking down the street when they come across a gang. They guys in the gang try to grab hold of sue but she stands up for herself by being smart to them. "Oh great, another guy with a Asian girls fetish. God, this is getting so old!"
I would recommend this film to older teens and adults. The film has a lesson that makes you realise that not every body is the same. It proves that under the right circumstances, people can change for the better or worse.
In a story with such a vast variety of ethnic groups and rivalry, a light shines through with the friendships and bonding that is made.
