GENIUS staring Colin Firth and Jude Law as the legendary book editor Maxwell Perkins and the author Thomas Wolf

GENIUS : ......whew!

We went to a press screening of GENIUS director Michael Grandage .. and it reminded me of the time when publications and publishers had full time editors that actually helped writers, THEY STILL EXISTS BUT ARE A VERY ENDANGERED SPECIES .. GENIUS  is a bio-drama about MAXWELL PERKINS a legendary book editor who worked with Fitzgerald, Hemingway and Thomas Wolf .. the film  centers around the relationship between Thomas Wolf (Jude Law)  and Max Perkins (Colin Firth) . While Laura Linney plays Mrs Perkins and Nicole Kidman Wolf's paramour (knockout performance) it is what happens creatively and emotionally between these two characters and the actors playing them that me that had me riveted to the screen.   . Sparks of all kinds fly . TBC  opens June 10th

Essential viewing : The Corporation if you are yet to vote in the remaing primaries . Please educate yourselves before you make your choice

 Now that Citizen United has given CORPORATIONS the same rights as HUMAN BEINGS it is important to understand just what a corporation is and how it evolved .. This documentary accomplishes teaching while entertaining at just the moment you might think you are drowning in data.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED  for all but of particular for those trying in the five remaining states with primary voters  to make a choice between Sanders and Clinton. Educate yourself and make an informed choice. I hope you will vote for Sanders. . But the choice is up to you.
