Make sure to view this important movie trailer focusing on Metastatic Breast Cancer
Decoding Annie Parker is a feature film based on the real lives of two remarkable women. It is the story of Anne Parker, played by Samantha Morton, a sharp witted, funny and irrepressible young woman who watches her mother, then sister, fall victim to breast cancer. When later, she herself is diagnosed with the disease she believes that her cancer must be hereditary in nature. She is resolved to fight back against immeasurable odds. The film is also the story of Dr. Mary-Claire King, played by Helen Hunt, the Berkeley based geneticist whose discovery of the BRCA1 gene and its link to hereditary breast cancer forever changed the understanding of the disease. Hers is considered one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century. SOURCE The Theresa Harpole Foundation for Metastatic Breast Cancer Web Site: http://metastaticfoundation.org

It’s the most mythic of all American emporiums – a one-of-a-kind Manhattan institution where over the last century, the view of fashion has been transformed into modern art. But behind Bergdorf Goodman’s magical window displays lies a very real world where the rich and famous wield their power and eccentricity, where young and talented designers have their dreams granted and denied, and where money and ambition co-mingle with radical ideas of beauty and provocative style. Now, for the first time, audiences get a chance to peek inside this world, as Matthew Miele’s Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s explores the history, inner workings and untold stories behind the store’s rise from a modest ladies’ tailor shop to a mirror of contemporary culture.

Linda Sinclair (Julianne Moore) is a forty-year-old unmarried high school English teacher in the small town of Kingston, Pennsylvania. She shares a small apartment with two Siamese cats and her rich collection of great literature. She maintains no close personal relationships aside from those she has with her favorite authors and stories. But Linda’s simple life turns an unexpected page when former star pupil Jason Sherwood (Michael Angarano) returns to Kingston after trying to make it as a playwright in New York. . Linda can’t stand the thought of Jason giving up on his dreams so she decides to mount his play – a dark, angst-ridden, ambitious work – as a Kingston High School production, with flamboyant drama teacher Carl Kapinas (Nathan Lane) directing.
As Linda, now well out of her normal comfort zone, takes further risks in life and love, the stage is set for highly comic downfall. With the play, her reputation, and her teaching career on the line, Linda finds an unlikely ally in herself. Amidst the ruins of her formerly perfect life, can she find a way to her own unique storybook ending?
Beatles Stories DVD Review of a a Fab Four Fan’s Ultimate Road Trip $19.99The Chief Blonde Remarks: Welcome to the Beatles Stories DVD Review Giveaway which is part of Ringin in the New Year Giveaway Hop hosted by Simply Sassy Media. My daughter and I watched this DVD together from start to end. FASCINATING. I was 3 when the Beatles debuted on the Ed Sullivan so obviously I wasn’t old enough to appreciate in the peak of the Beatles wave. Yet, who could grow up in the Beatles era without being affected in your own personal way? I remember watching all the Beatles movies on TV over and over. I loved the “Keystone” cop nature of HELP the most. I also remember going to see the Beatles music inspired “Sargent Peppers Lonely Heats Club Band” (1978) in my junior year of high school..I went to see it at least 10 times. While not “The Beatles” per se, it turned me on to their music all over again. I think that’s the point of this documentary “Beatles Stories”. The fascination of this group and their music creates and holds memories for all who experienced it. The people interviewed for this documentary share their first hand memories with all the rest of us who are a bit more distance from the source. Yet we are hungry, for the morsels that make these FAB Four into real life talent and real people. BEATLES STORIES: A FAB FOUR FAN’S ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP
Seen on Rollingstone.com, VH1, USAToday.com and nationally syndicated radio show “Breakfast with the Beatles”
About the DVD Beatles Stories
Songwriter Seth Swirsky grew up in the 1960s idolizing the Beatles –their songs, their sound and their style. In 2004, he set out, video camera in hand, to talk to people who had crossed paths with his heroes. From Sir Ben Kingsley to Sir George Martin, and Beach Boy Brian Wilson to astronomer Brian Skiff, Swirsky filmed hundreds of personal recollections from people who knew them well to those who just had an unforgettable encounter. Swirsky found stories in unexpected places getting Beatles intimates to open up–neighbors, tour mates, business associates, even former girlfriends–all telling stories you’ve never heard before! Longtime Beatles friend and personal assistant Tony Bramwell calls Beatles Stories, “A Magical Mystery Tour de Force!
