I work at night. While everyone else is asleep. During that time, I can do things that are definitely un-work related, like watch TV.
Last night I watched the movie, Shallow Hal. It was good. I enjoyed it. It came out in 2001 but I had never seen it.
As I always do after watching a movie, TV show or documentary- I look it up on the computer when I get home. The internet can be a wonderful thing! I check out the actors in the movies, other things they have done. I look up a location or whatever else relates to whatever it was that I watched on TV.
So, when searching Shallow Hal on google, I just went to Wikipedia. There is always a list of actors, so I checked out a few that I hadn't heard of and the young boy who played Young Hal is Sasha Joseph Neulinger. His history and what he is doing with his life now is fascinating to me!!
He was abused as a very young child and is now making a documentary called Rewind to Fast-Forward which is an autobiographical film about his life surviving multi-generational sexual abuse, which will have a lot of home video of his childhood.
I found his TEDx Talk. He is such a brave, smart, articulate young man!
I find this whole thing sad and interesting at the same time.
I look forward to watching this upcoming documentary!
