Film: The End


Released: September, 2008


 


A gritty coming-of-age story from first-time director, Diana Leatherland, where the bliss of innocence and the indignity of inexperience go hand-in-hand. Phoebe and Evan have been together since before they knew where babies really came from. Now faced with the realisation that they want very different futures, the just-turned 18 year olds decide to end their relationship on a high. While Phoebe "borrows" her dad's car, Evan collects the money he's been syphoning from his deadbeat uncle and they embark on a three-week journey wraught with petty frustrations and big epiphanies. With no rules and nothing off-limits, they set out to challenge how well they really know themselves and each other.


 


[I thought this could go with either thatwasnotveryravenofyou's "Ephemera" or Marke's "ill-used" so I resourced them both.]

my heart didn't skip a beat


our eyes didn't meet across a crowded room


there were no butterflies in my stomach


& i definitely didn't lose my breath.


i can eat and i can sleep


& my knees don't feel weak at all.


you're not my other half


you do not complete me.


 


but having you around feels


better than not having you around 


and that feels far better


than wobbly legs,


or arrythmia,


or a shortage of breath,


or feeling like i might


throw up at any moment.

"quiet everyone! quiet!


it's an important call!"


yells my three year old nephew


holding a potato skin to his ear.


he waits for absolute silence


before continuing:


"yes, hello...?


is that mr potato?"

While I was looking through themes that people have contributed, I was struck with how many of them were opposing or partnered up quite well and I wondered whether it could be interesting to have a pair of related themes per episode for Season 2. 


[Plus it's a little nod to our second series - one theme each for season 1, two themes each episode for season 2.]


 


Some of the pairs I thought could be interesting to combine for episodes were:


 


* Beginning & Endings


* Chaos & Control


* Lost & Found


* Heroes & Villains


* True or False


* Day & Night


* Light & Dark


* Love & Hate


* New & Old


* The Same & Different


* Pleasure & Pain


* Virtues & Vices

under the dim lights
in the corner of the pub
huddled together
we take it in turns
to tell the histories
etched on our hands -
the day the saw cut
through my finger
in technology class
the way my teacher
didn't even look up
as he gestured at the sink
and the blood ran down
my finger and pooled in
the crevices of my palm.
and the backs of your hands
all adorned with crescent moons
from your sister's rage
as she dug in her nails.
they've faded now, you say.
mine too. soon they'll
just be stories without
souvenirs. and we'll
point at the smooth skin
and say, there,
that's where it hurt,
definitely there,
i think.
