Have Dreams, Will Travel

De By Star Filmes

Also known as "A West Texas Children's Story", is a lovely movie from director Brad Isaacs. One of its charms is the music by Glen Ballard "Dream it Out Loud", sung by Lissie. The movie was released on DVD in Brasil, but never in USA. Originally set for a US theatrical release in late 2007 and then 2008, it languished in a vault secondary to the production company going bankrupt after post-production was already completed.

Chilly Rio

Today is so cold in Rio! Cold for "cariocas", of course. When thermometers show 18ºC, we begin to shiver and complain. Particularly, I rejoice. Cups of tea, good books and movies are always available to help us enjoy these rare moments. A chilly breeze suggests its polar origin and I can imagine glaciers, penguins, and seals it kissed before freezing my cheeks. Lovely day!

Charles John Vaughan (1816 - 1897)
