Amazing Grace, the movie
This is the ledge in Kauai where Harrison Ford through Anne Heche in Six Days, Seven Nights, or at least their stunt doubles.
We began our movie season at SLCC on our 9 ft screen in the office. Amazing Grace was a drama of the English Parliment in the 1800s, but the actors, and the theme of abolition were so well presented that I found myself really involved with the story and so impressed that England had a man like William Wilberforce to end slavery without a civil war. They did a fine job of paying homage to John Newton, slave trader converted to pastor, whose song has been the favorite hymn of all time in most polls, and has been performed by hundreds of people in all musical styles.
We also were entertained by Toy Story 3, which is one of the most charming trilogies ever produced by Disney Pixar. I was laughing out loud and a six year old behind me was laughing out loud and she made me laugh out louder. Good times.
