I have always loved the opening of the Charles Dickens novel about the French Revolution and the two worlds of the peasants and the aristocracy.

I am glad i did, as it is quite an amazing movie on several levels. The personal story told by the actor representing the man who had to do this in real life was revealing and very reflective.  Read More

If you see this film playing near you, RUSH to see it! It starts slowly and takes a shattering turn about a tenth of the way in. The rest keeps you on the edge. This lost girl/woman with Down syndrome encounters a world she has never been in or understood. Read More
