The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Haunting, Touching, Unforgettable

A deeply touching film. The director’s artistry in unfolding a fragment of unbelievable cruelty where the audience member feels he or she is experiencing the same event is a tribute to his understanding of human emotion without being manipulative.  I recommend this movie with the caveat that the twist of fate you will experience will leave its mark on you. ~Nilda Andrews, Living Life…Boomer Style Magazine

The Duchess

It is rumored…

The film was heavily marketed with links to Princess Diana (who is a direct descendant of Georgiana’s family, The Spencers), using her image in the trailers, and with a tagline (“There were three people in her marriage”) which is a play upon a quote attributed to the late Royal. Keira Knightley came out and denied the film had any links at all, stating that her character was interesting enough without any comparisons.
