Nonna: You know what movie my cousin was talking about, the movie where the guy make music (gestures like a conductor) and singin and he is very successful and his son is deaf or mute or something and he sing…beautiful beautiful COLE.
Me: Mr. Holland’s Opus?
Nonna: Yes. I tellin her I seen this movie 3-4 times and she no need to tell me about it.
Me: Yea. I like that movie.
Nonna: You know what other movie I like?

Me: Ok, what movie then?
Nonna: The one with the football kid that dying.
Nonna: Banna songin?

Nonna: Yes. I like that one too.
