    Hello I am a friend if Tyler and brennen’s who you may have noticed as an actor in some of their films. I don’t go to foothill but I occasionally stop by this list and look for a good movie or two. I just wanted to offer a movie to you that I thought was a really good movie. The movie is called Europa Europa, it is a German foreign film about self preservation during World War Two (much like the pianist.) the only setback is that the movie has frontal male nudity, but otherwise it is great. Another movie I immensely enjoyed would have to be a movie called “music within.” It is the true story of a man named Richard pimentel, a Vietnam veteran who receives a life changing injury that affects his hearing. He discovers that the only person he can understand is a genius with cerebral palsy named Art. The story branches off from there but I believe that these two movies would be great additions to your list. Thank you.
