We are going to see Gran Torino tonight. I can't wait! Written by Minnesota native Nick Schenk and one of the 17 year old actors Thao (Bee Vang) is from Robbinsdale-Armstrong High School with no stage experience. Bee won the part at a May casting call at a Hmong community center. I know the high school well. My brother and sister went to Armstrong so that's kind of cool. I don't like that the movie's original setting was Minneapolis, but shifted to Detroit when Michigan offered Warner Bros. a 42 percent production rebate. But what can you do?
Are any of you going to go see this movie? Let us know what you think.
Have a super Friday!
