本期主播:Sean-多伦多大学硕士在读 本期文章:小说One Day节选 录制地点:加拿大 多伦多 究竟什么是爱情,每个人心中或许都有着自己的答案。而在电影 One Day(《一天》)中,也给出了一个答案,爱情是邂逅,是牵挂,是分离,是错过。 聪慧狡黠、出身平凡的Emma Morley与俊美自恋的花花公子Dexter Mayhew原本像两道平行线,不会有任何交集。 大学毕业前夕的一天7月15日(July 15),两人短暂邂逅,称不上甜蜜,却深深印入彼此心中最柔软的部分。 此后每年同一天,伦敦、罗马、巴黎、爱丁堡,时空变换,他们焦灼、倾诉、挂念、幻想、安慰、伤害,总是在最需要彼此的时刻,一再错过。 And so Emma Morley walked home in the evening light, trailing her disappointment behind her. The day was cooling off now, and she shivered as she felt something in the air, an unexpected shudder of anxiety that ran the length of her spine, and was so intense as to make her stop walking for a moment. Fear of the future, she thought. She found herself at the imposing junction of George Street and Hanover Street as all around her people hurried home from work or out to meet friends or lovers, all with a sense of purpose and direction. And here she was, twenty-two and clueless and sloping back to a dingy flat, defeated once again. ‘What are you going to do with your life?’ In one way or another it seemed that people had been asking her this forever; teachers, her parents, friends at three in the morning, but the question had never seemed this pressing and still she was no nearer an answer. The future rose up ahead of her, a succession of empty days, each more daunting and unknowable than the one before her. How would she ever fill them all? She began walking again, south towards The Mound. ‘Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance. That was her general theory, even if she hadn’t made a very good start of it. With little more than a shrug she had said goodbye to someone she really liked, the first boy she had ever really cared for, and now she would have to accept the fact that she would probably never see him again. She had no phone number, no address, and even if she did, what was the point? He hadn’t asked for her number either, and she was too proud to be just another moony girl leaving unwanted messages. Have a nice life had been her last line. Was that really the best she could come up with? She walked on. The castle was just coming into view when she heard the footsteps, the soles of smart shoes slapping hard onto the pavement behind, and even before she heard her name and turned she was smiling, because she knew that it would be him. ‘I thought I’d lost you!’ he said, slowing to a walk, red-faced and breathless, attempting to regain some nonchalance. ‘No, I’m here.’ 影片根据英国作家大卫尼克尔斯David Nicholls的同名小说改编,今天Sean要为你读的是原著小说最后一章的节选,Dexter与Emma在毕业晚会的畅谈之后,Dexter父母突然出现,打破了Dexter和Emma接下去的一切计划。落单的Emma漫步街头,其失落之情弥漫在字里行间。 ------ One Day介绍 1988年7月15日,艾玛(安妮·海瑟薇饰)和德斯特(吉姆·斯特吉斯饰)在毕业晚会上一见钟情,一夜缠绵之后,他们即将踏上新的人生旅途。临行之际,他们约定成为好朋友,并在之后每年的7月15日那天见面。工人家庭出身的艾玛梦想着能让世界变得更美好,而有钱的花花公子德斯特则希望游戏人间。 20年中,曾经朝气蓬勃、怀揣理想的他们也不得不向残酷的现实低头。艾玛的工作际遇和感情生活都不理想,德斯特成了一个小众的电视名人,终日沉溺在酒精、毒品中,婚姻也岌岌可危。当他们的人生道路不断交汇时,他们的关系也随之改变,友情和争吵,希望和失落,泪水和欢笑。在这段人生的旅途中,两人蓦然回首,终于发现一直寻寻觅觅,最好的其实早在身边。 后期,编辑:永清 垫乐: All I Want-Kodaline 电影《星运里的错》插曲 July 15;We Had Today-Danny Elfman电影One Day配乐 Long Way Down-Tom Odell
