There’s Something About Brad Brad’s Status
Book Review and Author Interview by: Jennifer Parker

September 15, 2017

Film - There’s Something About Brad, Brad’s Status

Ben Stiller is all grown up. I mean it. He plays the role of Brad Sloan in Brad’s Status with absolute gravitas. It isn’t an easy role. Much of the dramedy (gag, someone please come up with a better word!) relies on Brad’s interior dialogue. Round shouldered, slow to smile, introspective, self-critical but not self-loathing is a lot to put on a protagonist... read more >

Book Review and Author Interview by: Jennifer Parker

September 7, 2017

Film - Move Over Hogwarts—The Practical Magic Is at Headfort, School Life

Maybe it’s the fairytale castle in the verdant lushness that can only exist in Ireland. Perhaps it’s the somewhat beatnik headmaster telling a roomful of children between the ages of seven and thirteen that they are already in charge of their own lives and discovering that his words are anything but trite... read more >
