Forever Takes a Bow

Actor Nathan Lang, 78 years old, died in his sleep last night in his house. Nathan Lang started his acting life in the 1970s. He was most known for playing Justin Maud in Young Hours. The movie made the world swoon over him. Women wanted a husband like him; men wanted a brother like him. Forever Justin, his fans called him. After Young Hours, Nathan Lang was seen in several big movies: Fallen, After Tonight, and Killing Jules. The last one won him a best actor award. In the 1980s, Nathan Lang lost his shine on the big screen. During this time, his movies never entered the top 20 list. Nathan Lang’s last movie was Dreams. Though the movie won him two best actor awards, it did not bring his fans back to the theater.

review 評論
likely 可能
nothing new in the story; Nathan Lang clearly didn’t do enough homework about his part in the movie. It was no surprise that the movie didn’t make it into the top 10 list the first week it was out
it became Nathan Lang’s second best-selling movie and also this year’s third best-selling movie in the country and may even get him another best actor award
the story is fresh and interesting, but the acting is not. However, it has been the country’s best-selling movie for the past three weeks. Clearly Nathan Lang’s fans cared less about his acting than his handsome face
see him not as the actor Nathan Lang anymore but as the poor old man in the movie. However, good acting does not always help with the ticket sales
