Remember Sunday



The story follows the characters of Molly (Bledel), a struggling waitress, and Gus (Levi), a jewelry store employee. Gus and Molly meet through a chance encounter when Gus is at Molly's diner waiting for his best friend. Molly sees Gus reciting notes into his pen recorder and when he goes to take a phone call she leaves a message on it for him. Soon after, Molly and Gus begin to date. Molly does not yet realize it, but Gus is unableto make new memories due to having had a brain aneurysm years before. As a result, he forgets the day's events every time he goes to sleep. Molly soon finds out that he has been recording all of their conversations on his pen. Gus tries to explain, but Molly mistakes it for being a disturbing and creepy habit. A few weeks later Molly returns to the apartment to find Gus's sister Lucy who explains everything and gives Molly the file folder Gus had filled with mementos and notes of their time together. Molly visits the hospital where Gus is under observation and introduces herself as his girlfriend. She shows him the folder so he can learn more about their relationship. We learn that prior to having his aneurysm, Gus was meant to be the next Einstein working at Caltech and the Mt. Wilson telescope in southern California. Molly takes Gus there, where he visits with his old colleagues. While visiting, they let him know that his work will help them to better understand the universe. Molly also meets Gus's ex-fiancée (one of his former co-workers) who explains why things had ended between them and warns her of the difficulties that any sort of serious relationship will have. Gus also tells Molly to leave him if an operation to fix his brain damage does not work. Gus's sister tells Molly that Gus has actually already had this operation, but it did not work. That night Molly sees a note on Gus's laptop to ask her to marry him the next day. Molly deletes the note after reflecting on what Gus had told her to do and Gus wakes up the next day without any memory of her. Molly continues her life with almost a quarter million dollars that she finally received from her great aunt's inheritance. With those extra funds she pays off her student loans and achieves her long standing dream of starting her own flower business. One day, while working at a wedding, a shooting star appears and Molly is reminded of Gus. She visits him at the jewelry shop he works at the next day. He recognizes her name from an envelope he had kept containing an antique ring that had belonged to Molly's great aunt. Shortly after they had originally met, Molly had come to the shop and had sold the ring to Gus for $200 that she had desperately needed. At the time the ring was in bad shape and missing half its stones. Gus had repaired the ring and kept it to return to Molly someday at no expense. He gives it back to her and she begins to cry tears of happiness and hints to him that they know each other. Gus is remembering something - her name - when he goes to retrieve the ring from the back of the store where he put it for safe keeping. We may take this as a hint that his ability to remember is slowly returning or, romantically, love has not forgotten her. Molly asks Gus if he would like to go out for coffee with her and says she knows a great place.




Remember Sunday



A lonely, down-on-her-luck waitress meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk and thinks that maybe, finally, she's met Mr. Right. The more Molly gets to know Gus, the more she's intrigued by him. But she's also mystified. Gus is absent-minded, preoccupied. Is he hiding something? The short answer is: yes. He's reluctant to share with her that since suffering a brain aneurysm, he's totally lost his short-term memory. Every day is a brand new day, his life starts anew. Every day he sees Molly he struggles to remember who she is and what she represents. Every day, he has to fall in love with her all over again.


I watched this because it takes place in New Orleans. In my opinion the location hasnt been used very well.The plot is very constructed but quite cute. The actors are doing a good job and if you liked "Gilmore Girls" you might be pleased to see Alexis Bledel (Rory) as the woman who falls in love with a man without a short term memory.For what it is its pretty charming. But at minute 70 I found it so much overdone (the man is the greatest scientists in the world and everything is just extremely fantastic) that it almost destroyed the whole movie for me. But the end was a compensation and so all in all I dont regrett having seen "remember sunday".


These brave souls put their bodies on the line for the right to vote, and their sacrifice was remembered yesterday as "Bloody Sunday." Partly due to their sacrifice in Selma and the commitment of local people throughout the South sacrificing day in and day out, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law later that year.


And of course the overwhelming majority of those whose votes are being cast aside are African Americans. John Lewis and the hundreds of others who bled 46 years ago suffered to guarantee the right to vote for every citizen. But the battle is not over. The threats to our rights as voters are still under assault. We in Cincinnati, Ohio remember the sacrifices of those who bled on the Edmund Pettus Bridge 46 years ago as we labor on to make sure that every vote counts in Hamilton County in 2011. 041b061a72
