4/17 (Sat) Little Big Women (Host: Holly)

文章 hollywang1991 »

Hi everyone :D As the subject line indicates, "Little Big Women" is a Taiwanese movie produced by Vivian Hsu(徐若瑄) and Shu-Fang Chen(陳淑芳) won the best leading actress at Golden Horse Awards because of this film.

If you haven't seen this melodrama or never gonna give it a try, it's fine 8). Great if you can have a look at the trailer & enjoy the theme songs though, I believe they may help you to have a big picture of today's meeting.

:idea: Official trailer :idea: Theme song #1 :idea: Theme song #2
For the meeting, please read the movie review here :arrow: https://dailytrojan.com/2021/02/08/soft ... struggles/

<Session I>

1. What's family loyalty to you? Is that something people do on purpose or unconsciously?
:arrow: Family loyalty refers to the feelings of mutual obligation, commitment, and closeness that exist among family members (e.g., parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, siblings).

2. In the story, three daughters of Lin Shoying (played by 陳淑芳) have forgone opposite paths to cope with their father’s absence. Do you have a specific way to cope with beloved/ significant ones' physical or emotional absence?

3. Family dynamic means unique patterns of relating, or interactions, between family members. Try to reflect on the family dynamic you are involved in, and do you like it?

<Session II>

4. Can you think of any Taiwanese family culture that relates to the complex relationships and struggles within the family?

5. "Little Big Women" digs into the traditional female virtue and gender role expectations. Can you think of some examples and do you it's changing a bit over time?

6. This is an extremely easy one! Introduce a movie you recently watched to your group members and tell us why do you recommend it (or not). :D

Hey, Holly, but I remember you said that you don't speak Taiwanese, then how do you enjoy that movie with so much Taiwanese? BTW, anyone picked up how they say "karma" in Taiwanese in that movie trailer? :shock:
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
