I watched Hugo this weekend – a heartwarming story about a boy (Asa Butterfield) who becomes an orphan and finds a father in a broken old man (Ben Kinsley); but first he has to fix him. Am I talking about the boy or the father? You will need to watch Hugo for yourself to find out. But I will tell you that his trail is fraught with danger on every side from constables to child services. The triumph of the story resides in a lost dream that is re»

"The Artist" won 5 awards Sunday night. Copryright: La Petite Reine The 84th Academy Awards, presented on Sunday, February 26, 2012, was a mixed bag of treats and surprises.

After watching his introduction, pretty much made everyone wonder why it took so long for him to come back. Incidentally, the only person to host the Award more times was Bob Ho»

If you wanted to find an illustration of what the Gospel is, you couldn’t do much better than going to see the latest film version of Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. As old as this story is, this is the first time I’ve ever been through it. I have never finished reading the book, nor have I ever seen a film or performance of this most incredible of stories. The Gospel comes out in this story as powerfully (perhaps even moreso) as it does in C»

Here's my Tapestry post for the week:  I love watching Downton Abbey, the mini-series with a chronology that begins the day the Titanic sank. And I’m a fan of the latest musical version of Les Misérables, Victor Hugo’s magnificent story set during the June Rebellion in Paris. If you’re anything like me, one of your favorite ways to learn history is to watch or read it in story form.I especially like learning about New Testament background»

The Cast of "Pippin: The Musical." Photo by Pamela M. Campi. You’d never know by looking at the outside of Hugo House on Capitol Hill, but there is a carnival going on inside of it. It’s true. The innocent looking structure holds within a different world from another timeat least for a few more days. Just past the ticket booth, you are suddenly thrust into a dark space. A friendly woman offers you a box of Cracker Jacks. As you make your way»

The upcoming adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel, Les Misérables, won’t release in theaters until Christmas. But the movie will need more than our Savior’s birthday to upstage my favorite adaptation. (Photo: from Columbia Pictures, Inc. 1998) I love the 1998 film, starring Liam Neeson. Even though the acting is superb, and the costumes, music, and scenes look first-rate, there is another element that outshines them all. The grace of God. Bef»

My three girls were sick on Easter so we stayed home and watched Hugo instead of contaminating our whole family.  The movie has an underlying theme of determination, revisiting a painful past, and restoring hope and the ability to dream again.  The young orphan is on a quest to discover what he believes will help him understand why his dad died and he is all alone.  He has a light bulb moment..."E»
