Sunday, June 2, 2013, a Finnish musical drama “Beauty and the Bastard” with English subtitles will be shown at the Scan Center, Valhalla Room at 5 p.m. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. Admission $7.00 / person for coffee/tea and pastry.
Its original Finnish title is Tyttö sinä olet tähti, which means “Girl you are a star”. “Beauty and the Bastard” is about opposites attracting between naïve, well-off young female singer Nelli, and rap DJ Sune, a promising but uncompromising rap DJ in the offices of a major record company.
A woman dulled with praise, Nelli, is well on her way to Med-School thanks to her parents, but dreams of a career as a singer. She is desperate to find a demo to show off her talents.
Playing each other they end up falling in love. This causes troubles for both. The beauty has to learn how to not please everybody and the drifter has to begin considering others in his life and his art. Nelli’s father and her boyfriend are not wild about the idea.
