In Review: The Adjustment Bureau and Beastly


I reviewed two films opening this weekend -- and even got to interview one of the directors. Check it out.


The Adjustment Bureau

Is the course of your life solely a result of your choice, or are there other, larger forces at work? These are questions theologians and philosophers have been debating for centuries. And these are the questions at the heart of this romantic thriller. Read more ...





The Patron Saint of Single Women


As a former singles columinst who now works for a Jewish-ish organization, I found this take on singleness intriguing. Hope you do too. (And for my fellow Gentiles, haftorah refers to the section of the Hebrew Bible read aloud in the synagogue that day.)

An Unmarried Woman

I first learned about Devorah—the judge, prophetess, and heroine of this week’s haftorah—as a fourth-grader at an all-girls yeshiva in Brooklyn. Sharing a name with her, and learning of her successful military campaign against the Canaanites, made me tremendously proud.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1

this slow, dark film was waiting

Like the singing thugs,

this Disney flick surprised me

in delightful ways





In Review: Eat Pray Love


I recently reviewed Eat Pray Love. I enjoyed the book well enough -- well, I should say I enjoyed the Eat section a lot and then kind of got through Pray and Love. So I was curious to see what they'd do with the movie.

Check out my review. And I'd love to hear what you thought of the book and/or movie, too.


In Review: Babies


I recently had the fun assignment of reviewing Babies, a film documenting the first year of four fresh little lives in Mongolia, Namibia, Japan, and the U.S. Not only was it a cinematic cute-fest, it was also a fascinating peek at life in these four vastly different cultures.

Check out my full review.
