Former ADL National Director Abe Foxman on the New Film ‘1945:’ “An astonishing new achievement.”

Based on the acclaimed story "Homecoming" by Gábor T. Szántó, 1945 is a haunting film about the deep undercurrents beneath the surface of a quaint village that's ultimately forced to face up to its "ill-gotten gains" from the Second World War. We open 1945 next week at the Royal, Town Center, and Playhouse and next month at the Claremont 5. Former National Director of the Anti-Defamation League Abe Foxman saw and loved the movie and wrote the following about it:"The Hungarian Jewish experience during WWII was unique among European countries.

Food Historian Linda Civitello on Terence Davies’ New Emily Dickinson Bio-Pic A QUIET PASSION.

The following post is by food historian Linda Civitello:Terence Davies’ masterpiece, A Quiet Passion, has a scene where Emily Dickinson bakes bread and later is informed that it won a prize. This is true. In 1856, Dickinson’s Brown Bread won second prize at a local fair. One of the judges was her sister Lavinia—“Vinnie”—played by Jennifer Ehle, who was Elizabeth Bennet in the mini-series Pride and Prejudice, and the miscalculating intelligence agent in Zero Dark Thirty. Dickinson’s prize-winning bread was made from rye and cornmeal because wheat did not grow well in New England. The bread, like New En [...]

MOONLIT Laemmle Oscar Contest 2017 Results!

The results of Sunday's Oscars were pretty ho-hum right up until somewhere around the 245th minute, when we all witnessed the most embarrassing accounting error of all time. Apparently the gentleman from PricewaterhouseCoopers was more focused on his star-struck tweeting than making sure he gave Warren Beatty the right envelope. However, let's not let this snafu obscure the fact that the Academy surprised everyone and honored a genuinely marvelous film, Moonlight, only the second Best Picture Winner about LGBTQ people (the first was Midnight Cowboy) and the first with an all-African American cast.Anyway, in our little Oscar contest, the winne [...]
