Also starting March 3 is “Trending,” a new exhibit of multiple all-new paintings, ceramics, glass pieces and jewelry by our 24 regular members. Film Showcase to show ‘The Verdict’. The International Film Showcase’s February feature is “The Verdict,” from Belgium, and will have its U.S. premiere Friday, Feb. 27 at the Orinda Theater, where it will show for a week. The film also will show at the El Campanil theater in Antioch on March 22. The film deals with a flaw in Belgium’s justice system about a man losing his family to murder and the legal glitch that lets the killer go scot-free.
“I Feel Pretty” does succeed in its charming romance, new item----simple medium 3 inch hair bow----little dancer--ballet shoes--ballerina Standup comedian Rory Scovel makes his leading man debut, and he’s the breakout of the movie, His Ethan is also insecure, and what draws him to Renee is her sheer confidence, You watch him fall in love with her as she competes in a Coney Island bikini contest, in one of the funniest sequences of the film, thanks to Schumer’s unabashed dance moves and Scovel’s nervous reactions, “Can I be you when I grow up?” he asks in awe, The romance is a bright spot that feels real in an otherwise muddled film..
The dancers were in top form – clean lines, tight ensemble work and buoyant enthusiasm – as they burst from the wings in the first act, The Classical Christmas. Then midway through, dancers Lauren Pschirrer with Mengjun Chen, Terez Dean with Benjamin Warner, and Haskins with Needham-Wood relished abandoning themselves in Wheeler’s new “We Three Kings.” With swooping fluidity, it opened up the stage and sent dancers soaring both physically and emotionally. To judge from this first effort for Smuin, Wheeler deserves more such opportunities in the future. This one’s definitely a keeper.
