Dhamma Brothers and Sex, May 30

Films at our local cinema (LINK). From the cinema:
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.

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
Could two films be more different? I strongly recommend the first. It includes my friend Jonathan Crowley as one of the two key protagonists.

Run and hide is probably appropriate for the second. Or at least peruse the Jezebel take. LINK
