We are so pleased to be presenting Jenny Phillips and her remarkable documentary, "Dhamma Brothers," this Friday, May 30 at 7:15 in Amherst Cinema's main theater. Jenny is a Concord native, and in 2002 she turned her camera on the Donaldson Correctional Facility, Alabama's last stop for hardened criminals. There, 36 prisoners participated in an arduous 10-day program introducing Vipassana meditation techniques. After the film, Jenny will answer questions about the film and the program she helped to start.Could two films be more different? I strongly recommend the first. It includes my friend Jonathan Crowley as one of the two key protagonists.
And at Pleasant Street Theater, we have a special treat for those looking for a summer blockbuster without the superheroes and explosions: "Sex in the City: The Movie." Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte are back, a bit more mature, and this time on the big screen. With over 300 designer-label costume changes between the four leads, romantic dalliance never looked so good
Run and hide is probably appropriate for the second. Or at least peruse the Jezebel take. LINK
