Men and women are shown in various states of partial undress after being discovered in a private wing of the court during festivities. Women breasts are briefly shown, men are bare chested, and others are partially covering themselves. No sex is seen, however it is obvious that licentious activities are occurring. Then one of the men appears cross-dressed in women’s clothing.
A woman is dead lying in bed and there is brief full frontal nudity.
A woman is seen walking and then standing in a sheer white gown with nothing underneath. Her breasts and nipples are clearly visible and the side of her hip. Her front lower region is a bit obscured by the angle of her body to the viewer.
There is a graphic sex scene between a man and a woman while the guards kill the men. The man is shown thrusting between the woman’s legs and there are close up shots of nudity including their legs, her breasts, his buttocks and the thrusting.
A man and woman have sex standing in a dark hall. Moaning is heard and explicit sexual sounds with movement but no actual nudity is seen. As the sexual activity becomes more vigorous, the woman is heard screaming, but there is an overlap between this being a potentially sexual sound and this leading into a situation of peril where she is screaming from fear/discomfort.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


People need to travel. There are often two reasons. I hope someone is waiting for you in the distance, or someone around me can accompany you on the road.

The best illustration of this sentence is the film Elizabethtown. However, it seems that this film is also the one that subverts this sentence.

Drew, a sneaker designer who was originally at the peak of his career, suffered the biggest “Waterloo” in his life. The new sneakers were criticized and ridiculed. The company lost nearly $1 billion. His beautiful girlfriend said “goodbye” to him mercilessly.

Seeing this beginning, you must think it is a Hollywood style inspirational film – the hero encounters a heavy crisis, suddenly ushers in the dawn, returns to the peak, left-handed career, right-handed beauty. I thought so, but it wasn’t.

The battered drew decided to go home and commit suicide. Just when he had tied his knife, the phone rang. His father suddenly died in his hometown. As the eldest son, he had to pick up his father’s bones. Under such double attack, he has to go to a completely strange hometown and play a successful designer from a big city surrounded by a bunch of strange relatives and friends.

The hometown of the strange father is Elizabeth town.

Elizabeth town, relative to California and famous designers, represents the family affection, friendship and adherence to tradition of life. It adheres to the tradition of burial for more than 200 years, and is required to be buried in the family cemetery. Drew’s mother, however, insisted on the customs of California, cremation and returning to the sea.

It turned out that many years ago, drew’s father, handsome Captain Mickey, who graduated from west point, accidentally met the beautiful California girl Holly in the elevator of the business hotel. He had a fiancee and she was engaged, but they fell in love at first sight. In this way, the handsome captain of Kentucky was abducted by the bad girl in California and moved away from Elizabethtown. Drew’s mother, therefore, formed a knot with her relatives in Elizabethtown and did not communicate with each other for decades. Now, due to serious differences over their husband Mickey’s funeral, they have to face each other again.

What kind of person is Mickey? What kind of father is he? The director uses many flashback memories and other people’s descriptions to show a man who is “simple, loyal, optimistic and humorous”. His mantra is: “it wasn’t this, it will be something else”. If this road doesn’t work, you will find another way.

He is loyal to love and family affection. For his wife and children, he moved away from Elizabethtown, but he couldn’t forget the people in his hometown, and finally returned to his hometown like a fate.

Drew, who had been busy working for eight years, realized at this time that he had such a good father. His father has a hometown he loves so much, and he is connected with the people here.

It’s like there’s a huge corner hidden in your life, and you never know or want to uncover it. You turn a blind eye, until you have the luck to touch it, you find that a corner is like a new chapter in life.

Because you found this forgotten corner, you have found new energy hidden in your blood, just as Columbus discovered the new world.

When his heart was still bitter and shocked, a ray of sunshine came with fresh air. It was Claire, the stewardess he met on the plane.

The director completely endows the heroine with an elf like temperament, a god woman like perception ability, and has her own theory of life. Blonde, sweet smile, tolerance, enthusiasm and optimism are enough to save a boring man immersed in failure.

Everyone should take a road trip. At least once in your life, just yourself, with music. Claire said.

She planned his first road trip in his life.

After the funeral, he opened the five-star map from Claire. Every page inside is her hand-painted map, where there are delicious food, where there is the hotel where Martin Luther King was shot, where there are bartenders full of stories, and where there are new scenery around the corner. What’s more amazing is that each page comes with a DVD, including jazz, blues and all kinds of travel music she prepared for him. She said to him: don’t dance songs.

He followed the hand-painted map, passed the Mississippi River and the black river, and scattered his father’s ashes in every scenery he thought was worth staying.

“The sun is setting at this time.”.

“At this time, please roll down the window, because some music needs air.”.

I don’t know if this idea is because the director married a music elf as his wife. This film is also said to be his semi autobiographical film.

If you can meet someone who travels with you, it must be a wonderful thing. However, if you can meet someone who can lead you to appreciate the scenery, it is not only beautiful, but the greatest luck in life.

It’s just that not everyone has such luck. Most people encounter a bad partner, and they can’t lead others.

of course. They were finally together. In the bustling crowd, he was reborn. They met again. They hugged each other tightly, as if they had never loved so much.

Love is the final outcome of the film, and music travel is the final climax of the film. So what is the answer to the movie?

Why do we need to travel so much now, even infatuated with it. I think that’s because we have too many questions and we want to find too many answers. Here, the answers to these questions are in chaos and nowhere to be found. We have to find a hypocritical “clarity” after escaping from the status quo and a “sincerity” in a state close to clarity by living elsewhere.

There are too many problems. The places of travel are overcrowded. The answer is more and more illusory.

Therefore, the farmer’s market in the end is more like the answer. Where is the answer? In this bustling crowd, it is corn, soybean and wheat, cotton candy barbecue string, not in Martin Luther King, not in rivers, not in fields and forests.

Sometimes escape is not clear, and travel may not be close to the heart. True love is related to whether you love yourself again in travel. Only by falling in love with yourself again can you have the ability to love others and life.

Travel is not salvation. There is no savior like Claire in your distance. What we have is just a self, a self that accompanies us from birth to death.

Even if you go to the ends of the earth, to Elizabethtown, to Utopia, what you can’t escape is yourself.

If you don’t love yourself, everything is meaningless. If music and travel, if love, if the departure of relatives can arouse your love for yourself, then we still have hope?

I hope everyone can find Elizabeth town in his life.
