Leave No Trace

ROTTEN TOMATOE'S RECENT EDITORIAL "100 BEST MOVIES OF 2018 (THUS FAR)" RANKS LEAVE NO TRACE AS THE #2 BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR.  SEE THE FOLLOWING SITE:        

       https://editorial.rottentomatoes.com/guide/best-movies-of-2018/ 

 

Will (Ben Foster) and his teenage daughter, Tom (Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie), have lived off the grid for years in the forests of Portland, Oregon. When their idyllic life is shattered, both are put into social services. After clashing with their new surroundings, Will and Tom set off on a harrowing journey back to their wild homeland. The film is directed by Debra Granik from a script adapted by Granik and Anne Rosellini.

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "Debra Granik's drama about a damaged war vet (Ben Foster) living off the grid with his teen daughter, brilliantly played by breakout star Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie, is hypnotic, haunting and one of the year's best."

 

Kenneth Turan  Los Angeles Times:  "Fiercely involving in a way we're not used to, made with sensitivity and honesty."

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "The director, Debra Granik, made a stunning feature eight years ago: "Winter's Bone,"... Here's another stunner, and another revelation in the calmly radiant person of Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie."

 

Stephanie Zacharek  Time Magazine:  "Leave No Trace is a gorgeous story about adolescence, about basic human kindness, about separation and reconciliation, about the limits of what parents can teach their kids."

 

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score:  100%

Crazy Rich Asians

 

"Crazy Rich Asians" follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend's wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick's family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country's wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick's arm puts a target on Rachel's back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick's own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can't buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "The result is hugely enjoyable, and hooray for Hollywood for making it happen."

 

Stephanie Zacharek  Time Magazine:  "It's simply great fun, a winsome romantic comedy and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags."

 

Richard Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "Crazy Rich Asians glimmers and sparkles, gives us characters to root for, and is pure escapist fantasy fun."

 

Colin Covert  Minneapolis Star Tribune:  "Here's a love story with genuine stakes, grown-up characters and a great sense of fun. Having radically exceeded my hard-hearted expectations, it should leave romcom fans feeling as delighted as children on Christmas day."

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "In the guise of a bouncy romcom about insanely gorgeous rich kids, the pointedly entertaining Crazy Rich Asians is making history as the first Hollywood film in 25 years to feature an all-Asian cast. It's also "the" comedy to see this summer."

Eighth Grade

Thirteen-year-old Kayla endures the tidal wave of contemporary suburban adolescence as she makes her way through the last week of middle school--the end of her thus far disastrous eighth grade year before she begins high school.

 

Peter Travers  Rolling Stone:  "First-time director Bo Burnham's tender take on teen angst, starring an incandescent Elsie Fisher, is a flat-out triumph-a film that is both indelibly of the moment and achingly timeless."

 

Joe Morgenstern  Wall Street Journal:  "Poignantly funny, wrenchingly wise and meltingly beautiful, "Eighth Grade" is a not-so-small miracle of independent filmmaking."

 

Chris Nashawaty  Entertainment Weekly:  "It's heartbreaking, heartwarming, and a total charmer."

 

David Edelstein  New York Magazine:  "If there's a more haunting portrait of what it's like to grow up now, I'm not sure I could take it."

 

Justin Chang  Los Angeles Times:  "More than anything, this emotionally unsparing but never-punishing movie feels like the work of someone who kept his eyes and ears wide open."

 

ROTTEN TOMATOES TOMATOMETER SCORE:  98%

 

Rotten Tomatoes' recently released "100 Best Movies of 2018 (So Far) ranks EIGHT GRADE as the 9th best movie this year.  PADDINGTON BEAR 2 was ranked first and our now showing LEAVE NO TRACE was second.

 ECSTATIC DANCE

SUNDAY   (4:30 PM)   Sept 16

 

Come and treat yourself to the experience of free-form movement to world-rhythms mixed live at the event.

Ecstatic Dance is a place to dance “from the inside out” and connect with like-minded people of all ages in a safe and non-judgmental space. Given the large amount of people that may show up to the event and the nature of our free-form movement, for liability purposes this dance is open to anyone aged 13 years or older only.

In its most basic definition it is free-form movement/dance inspired by music, allowing our bodies to move freely without judgment or concern for the grace or beauty of the dance. This is the dance you dance as if nobody is watching! It is an inner/outer journey of moving meditation that develops a direct body-spirit connection. Let your body and inner guide be your teachers.

No dance experience or partner is necessary. It's a perfect outlet for those who think they can't dance and for experienced dancers alike. It is free-form, not a structured dance. It is also not a social dance. It is an environment without observers or conversation, where you can feel safe to try new things and really push yourself out of your comfort zone.

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines:
1. Move however you wish.
2. No talking on the dance floor or altar - low whispers off the floor please.
3. No shoes on the dance floor.
4. Water breaks to be taken off the dance floor.
