I’ll Wait for the Next One: Desperately Conjuring Up True-Love Illusions

I’ll Wait for the Next One: Desperately Conjuring Up True-Love Illusions

J’Attendrai Le Suivant (I’ll Wait For The Next One) is a contemporary French 4-min. short film about single people who are trying to find true love in today’s urban world.  In the film’s opening scene, a very lonely woman who appears to be in her thirties takes the subway home, where she encounters a young man who claims to be looking for true love. The issue of being single in this modern world is never as starkly emphasized as when the woman eagerly gets off the train in response to the man’s plea. It’s a perfectly told story, with a very unexpected twist at the end!

Seventeen-Year-Old Melanie Oudin Stuns Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open!

Seventeen-Year-Old Melanie Oudin Stuns Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open!

It has been an amazing summer for seventeen-year-old Melanie Oudin, who hasn’t quite finished growing up but who’s in the midst of a life-changing season of big emotions and pulling off very big upsets.  Melanie is still very much a teenager from Marietta, Ga., enjoying the trip of her life in the Big Apple, playing foosball in the players’ lounge and using words like “amazing” and “cool” as she works her dizzying way through the draw at the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows.

Now, despite standing just 5 feet 6 inches, she’s standing tall at her country’s most important tennis tournament.  Oudin’s latest win was the biggest so far: She knocked off three-time Grand Slam Champion and former No. 1 Maria Sharapova 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 Saturday to reach the U.S. Open’s fourth round.  “I just had a blast,” said Oudin, who buried her face in a towel and sobbed on the sideline when the match ended.
