This is the story of a boy and his dream.
But more than that,
it is the story of an American boy
and a dream that is truly American.
怎么了 你去哪 小黑
What's the matter? Where ya goin', Black boy?
Black boy, we're the welcoming committee.
You'd better get outta here.
-不 爸爸 -快走
- No, Daddy. - Go on.
It just makes it tougher having you here.
The year, 1928.
The time, spring.
If you were a young man,
your thoughts were undoubtedly turning to those of love.
But if you were a young boy,
your thoughts were of one thing...
I got ya, kid.
Just going over another bridge
named after some dead slave owner.
Finally made it to the promised land.
Good riddance to old Jim Crow.
I heard a noise before...
All right, folks, this is our ride into the next town.
Let's get our luggage and load up.
-小心 小心 -谢谢
- Very carefully, very carefully. - Thank you.
Let me get those for you.
What's that book you been readin' about?
- "A Princess of Mars"? - Mm-hmm.
It's about this man named John Carter...
who goes from being a captain in the army of Northern Virginia
to becoming a Martian warlord.
Starts with him running from Apaches
and hiding in this magical cave,
which transports him to the Red Planet.
- That's when it starts to get good. - Hold on.
You said the hero was a Confederate officer.
He fought for slavery.
You don't get to put an "Ex" In front of that.
Stories are like people.
Loving them doesn't make them perfect.
You just try and cherish 'em,
overlook their flaws.
Yeah, but the flaws are still there.
Yeah, they are.
But I love pulp stories.
I love that the heroes get to go on adventures in other worlds,
defy insurmountable odds,
defeat the monster, save the day.
Little Negro boy from the southside of Chicago
don't notoriously to get to do that.
Unless they join the army.
I didn't join for adventure.
I joined to get away from my father.
Which is the real funny part,
'cause he's also now the reason I'm coming back home.
Is he sick?
He's gone missing.
What are you looking at, George Freeman?
And why you looking at your wife?
You waiting for her to fix you breakfast?
- I'm leaving tomorrow on the guide trip. - I'm aware.
I'm looking at my wife because
I feel I've been spending too much time on the road
and not enough time in bed with her.
Why, George Freeman, you got me blushing before God.
If he's watching, I think we should give him a show.
What has gotten into you?
You're only gonna be gone for a few days.
Used to be you couldn't wait to go on some grand adventure.
You know, I could go.
Make the trip instead of you.
- Is that idea so crazy? - No, no.
- Is it? - No.
You know, I've written more than my share
of reviews for the guide.
Arguably, the best ones.
The best ones.
And all of them based on your notes.
imagine how good they could get
if I could take notes on my own.
You know the road is a dangerous place
for a woman traveling alone.
You know the shit I deal with out there.
It's dangerous out there, Hippolyta.
Where you going?
My party starts at noon,
and those pecans in the kitchen
are not gonna turn themselves into pies.
Stay with me.
What are you doing?
You know Dee is up.
You know these walls are thin.
I can't remember the last time we made love in the light of day.
I want to see my wife.
- Get over here. - George, baby,
what's going on in there? Is that Dee?
She's fine. She just got surprised, is all.
Your nephew is back.
Oh, Tic's back!
I wasn't scared.
- I know you weren't. - You sounded scared to me.
Tic's back! Yes!
Thank you for your business.
Heading through that part of the country in a couple months.
Welcome home, Tic.
Oh, the tip is solid.
My cousin bought smokes from there just last week.
I believe, but I still have to triple-check.
A bad tip in the guidebook gets someone killed.
Okay, I got you.
Getting reacquainted with old friends.
Something like that.
I'm surprised that one caught your interest.
Horror is usually my thing.
"On the Creation of Niggers."
Now that's one of Lovecraft's we don't hear mentioned often.
Pops made me memorize that poem word for word
after he caught me reading this.
