One Nation, One King (2018)


One Nation, One King (2018)

This created a new level of boredom; naps are for the weaks. After the first 30 minutes, I felt my soul leaving my body and the theatre to run into a big truck. Then I spent the rest of the movie thinking why I was still watching it.

The sheer complexity of the French Revolution has made it a difficult topic for film-makers, and Pierre Schoeller fails in his noble bid to make it accessible by emphasising the role le peuple played in the fall of a royal dynasty. The sequences set at court and in the various assemblies formed after 14 July 1789 have a ring of solemn authenticity that is sadly lacking from the melodramatic (and sometimes musical) passages involving glass-blower Olivier Gourmet, laundress Adèle Haenel and chicken thief Gaspard Ulliel, who conveniently keep showing up at the most epochal moments in Louis XVI's decline and fall. Typical of Schoeller's populist pandering is the episode in which the residents of a benighted street experience sunlight for the first time in centuries, as the Bastille tower is demolished. But the National Convention vote on the king's fate sums up the textbook approach, as each speaker is identified by captions that fail to denote their historical significance.

Paris, 1789. The Bastille has been stormed and a breath of liberty blows through the streets of Paris. Françoise, a young washerwoman, and Basile, a drifter without a family or name, discover the unique exhilaration of love and revolution. Together with their friends and the people of the working-class districts of Paris, they begin to realize dreams of emancipation in a newly formed assembly where they witness, with both hopes and doubts, the creation of a new political system. Within their debates and the fury on the streets, lies the fate of their once sacred king and the birth of a republic. Freedom has a story.

If we keep this conviction at the center of our every word and action, if we look upon out countrymen as brothers with a shared home and a common destination, then instead of meaningless words rolling off of our tongue, we will truly create one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

ADL in Arizona will continue furthering the work of Dr. King and advancing our mission through our No Place For Hate initiative, which aims to create schools free of bias, bullying and bigotry. We are partnering with law enforcement for training on hate-crime identification, response and reporting. We are responding to hate crimes and incidents, and we are speaking out on behalf of marginalized and vulnerable communities.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

Can thirteen-year-old Arturo Zamora do it all or is he in for a BIG, EPIC FAIL For Arturo, summertime in Miami means playing basketball until dark, sipping mango smoothies, and keeping cool under banyan trees. And maybe a few shifts as junior lunchtime dishwasher at Abuela's restaurant. Maybe. But this summer also includes Carmen, a poetry enthusiast who moves into Arturo's apartment complex and turns his stomach into a deep fryer.
