Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

I don’t know how many of y’all have seen the new Lucy movie but…
but did this scene not remind you of a Hoveround commercial?
Now you’re free to see the world!!!
Lucy was a decent movie. 3.5/5.0
I noticed some obvious influences from The Fifth Element, in terms of pacing, the way specific sequences played out, and the way technology is displayed.
While the concept is totally implausible - the movie turned supernatural very quickly, it was nonetheless consistent in delivering it’s action with flare.
Towards the end of the experience, once things went full on Akira/power level 9000 crazy, the positioning of some of the higher concepts of the story took second place to epic visuals seemingly designed to enthrall viewers with a mind-bending cosmic displays in an effort to mask the more overt messages found throughout.
