Today I went to see an Indonesian film titled Sang Pemimpi ("the Dreamers"). Based on a best-selling book and being a sequel to another successful film, it is about friendship, strength, pride, and - as the title suggests - dreams. Set in the 1980s in a small Indonesian island, it tells the story of two best friends who have big dreams of seeing the world (ultimately to one day study in Sorbonne, Paris). They go through a lot of hardship, some are hilarious while others are heart breaking. It is an emotional and inspirational story, which I wish I could describe in a much better way - because it deserves it, and I'm not just saying that because I'm biased. Although I admit I felt a tad nostalgic for my own Indonesian high school days when I saw the classic white/grey school uniforms in the film. Not sure how much the movie will be distributed internationally, but if you ever get a chance to see it, I recommend that you do.
