The White Pavilion, part 27

A Journey into the Wilderness

The birth of Seymore and Bryhta's eldest children changes their lives as they shoulder the demands of caring for such a large young family. Seymore does his best to help, but it is Bryhta who willingly bears the brunt of the burden so that he can make the most of opportunities at The College.

Then dream away... Read more »


After-Christmas Gift Exchange: Taking Back Some Stuffed Shirts – Holiday and The Late George Apley

by Nancy Young

 In the post-Christmas and early January days of eating, shopping, and watching bowl games and parades, two films are well worth chancing after your favorite team has been knocked out of contention or the computation of how many daisies, roses, and gardenias went into making barge-sized parade floats just doesn't hold your interest. Both films are holiday-ish, without being overtly so, and therefore tuck very neatly into the after-Christmas days—particularly since they're all about happiness being more important than money (something it's good to remember when all the funds vanished under the Christmas tree)...
