The Five-Year Itch

The Five-Year Itch

Marital drama stumbles in atmospheric 'Take This Waltz' 

Is there something innately unsatisfying about long-term married love? Does familiarity breed contempt or content? These are some of the issues raised in Take This Waltz, the second feature film directed by Canadian actress Sarah Polley. (The first was the poised, heartbreaking Away From Her.)

Heart in the Highlands

Heart in the Highlands

Mother, daughter bond in fresh, funny, feminist 'Brave' 

There are so many fairy tales that feature a wicked stepmother, or absent or negligent parents, it's refreshing to see one devoted to the loving, if sometimes fraught, relationship between a mother and daughter.

Real ‘People’

Real ‘People’

Chris Pine opens up about chance moments, lessons learned and the cool factor of his new film ‘People Like Us’ ALSO Writer-director Alex Kurtzman on ‘People Like Us’

Writer-director Alex Kurtzman’s new film People Like Us (★★★out of four) is one of those rare big screen comedy-dramas that manages to effectively pull you into its universe—and keep pulling you in deeper until you cannot help but care about the people who occupy it.

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
