    Great Character Study of Making Bad Choices (Film)

    I watched this movie tonight starring Stanley Tucci. It’s a great character study of a male college professor who makes bad choices and has a short affair with one of his students.  A lost soul, the character falls for the seduction of a young college girl’s novel she is writing.  We watch as she pulls him in, trying to use him to get what she wants.  He is not a bad guy, but just a lost person who makes bad choices that he regrets.  This is not a love story.

    A New Look at Arranged Marriages (Film)

    If you have been opposed to the idea of arranged marriages, then you need to watch this film: “Arranged” by Cicala Filmworks As part of my spiritual and religious quest that I have been on since Dec 2013 to understand God and the differences between the world religions, I stumbled across this movie on Netflix while searching for something interesting to watch that had a spiritual theme to it. See trailer below I first thought this would be a movie showing the horrors of arranged marriages.  But instead it was a tender film about a Jewish woman and a Muslim woman who are both at the age where her parents…
