Resolved Question: What is my name in
My name in English is David Otto. I have some questions with regards to how to write my name in Chinese.
Looking at a dictionary, "David" is 大卫 and "Otto" is 奥托, but I wonder if I were to write my full form name in Chinese, whether it would go 奥托 大卫 (surname first, as normal Chinese names go) or 大卫 奥托 (surname last, as people in anglophone countries say and Chinese people may want to imitate). Which way is more common for writing Western names in China?
I would also like a Chinese-style three-character name. My part-Chinese girlfriend insists that I just use 大卫 as anything else would just sound weird, and maybe she has a point. Nonetheless, I'm sure there are many Daweis in China already and I'd still like to have a character to represent my surname.
She says 托 大卫 and 奥 大卫 sound strange. Does anyone have a suggestion that either sounds vaguely like "Otto" or means "wealth" (the original meaning of the name)? Thank you.

Resolved Question: What is this film?
I watched a film about 2 years ago on Sky, and now my friend wants to watch it but I really can't remember the title!! This film is a real story.
I think it was an Australian film, where there was a teenage girl who was a dancer and had a 'perfect' family. Across the street lived a troubled girl who hated her mother and herself and really wanted a life like her neighbour, and the plot is, when she's about 20 something and the 'perfect' girl is a teen, she phones her up saying she wants to do something and she'll give her $300 for it and the girl wants to buy shoes with the money she'll get. She's not allowed to tell anyone about meething the woman. When she gets there, the mad woman strangles her with a phone cord and hides her in the bathroom? and then she pretends she's her, wearing her clothes, using her name etc. and finally gets arrested in her flat?
What is this film? Thank you! x
