I went to the film theatre yesterday, full of obnoxious 15-18 year old teens . I was probably the only adult there (20 years old).
The three girls in front of me talked, texted, and laughed inappropriately loud at every single opportunity they had. Close to the end of the film, They ran out of the theatre, and I overheard them planning to sneak into the showing of "SPRING BREAKERS" without paying.
Needless to say, I alerted some of the authorities (that movie hadn't begun yet, and due to the light from the one girl's phone I was able to give clear descriptions off all three). I didn't stay to see their reaction, but I was very satisfied with myself.

A Dutch organisation, Mars One, is seeking volunteers for a flight that would take them to the Red Planet and leave them there. The costs (6 billion dollars to first launch) would be covered, it's hoped, by TV rights and corporate sponsorship
So they are still going, despite more and more people calling this a hoax.

AnnaSophia's name was attached last year but there's no mention of her since, so she might not be attached still.
Possible points of discussion:
Do you think this is a good vehicle for AnnaSophia's talents?
What do you think of the recent trend of youth in dystopian environments in films (The Hunger Games, Ender's Game, After Earth, etc)?
