It's not every day that you see an older adult with mental disabilities as the star in an internationally distributed film.

When the children speak for themselves, 'Promises' is very powerful.

Frailty (2002)

Moody, perverse, and full to busting with metaphorical cautions.

The White Stripes: 3 April 2002 - Boston

The White Stripes are the real deal. No bass guitar, no samples, no click tracks, no "exploratory jams" -- just monster tunes, earth-shaking guitar, a telepathically intuitive drummer, and a vocal delivery that can evoke Iggy Pop as easily as Gene Vincent.
