In The Lens
JOHN LITHGOW & ALFRED MOLINA
ON BIG SCREEN IN
LOVE IS STRANGE


The film about two men who wed after 39 years together, was inspired by co-writer Mauricio Zacharias' parents' 50 year marriage.

Actors John Lithgow and Alfred Molina have been friends for more than 20 years. That friendship lurks somewhere underneath their portrayal of Ben and George, respectively.



In the film, co-written by Ira Sachs and Mauricio Zacharias, Lithgow and Molina portray two gay men who finally tie the knot in an idyllic wedding ceremony in lower Manhattan after 39 years together. But when news of their marriage reaches the Catholic school where George teaches music, he's fired from his longtime job.

The couple are forced to sell their pleasant Manhattan apartment. When finding new lodging takes longer than anticipated, they ask their friends for a roof over their heads. This results in the separation of the two men, with Ben staying in Brooklyn with his family where he shares a bunk bed with his nephew. George is installed on the coach of neighbors, a pair of gay policemen. The film emphasizes that although plyscially separated, their strong emotional bond fuels finding a solution.

Ira Sachs, who also directed the film, used a directorial style that involved spending time with each actor individually instead of rehearsing together. By treating each of the actors with equal care let the chemical reactions happen when all gathered on the set. Thus allowing them to improvise and collaborate.

What results are performances that, says co-writer Zacharias, "tells a story about mature love. The inspiration for me was my parents who have been married for over 50 years. We rarely see this kind of love on screen and we wanted to do that." The film opens in Los Angeles and New York on August 22nd.

HOW YOUR BUSINESS CARD
CAN GET YOU NOTICED


It's no longer enough to hand over a simple piece of printed cardboard.

For more than three hundred years we've been handing out business cards with little thought to how boring they may be. So many enterprising companies have decided to transform the custom by coming up with more creative alternatives.

Unusual Materials
A European finishing school (yes, they still exist) with a sense of humor printed business cards on squares of sandpaper.





Then there's the landscape architect firm who created a business card impregnated with seeds. When watered, it was capable of growing a watercress garden.

Strange Shapes
Pop-up cards featuring photos of employees on the job work well. Extra points if the receipient can build something with a proffered card, such as a model car. As recently distributed by an automobile dealer.

...and would you believe, Tearable?
Surprising how much mileage can be realized from easily tearable cards. A divorce lawyer created such a card that tears in half. While a fitness trainer created a card printed with a man's torso. One tear removes the belly to create a sleek silhouette.





Who said business cards can't be fun?

THE ART OF SCARF APPRECIATION


Few can pull off the artless scarf looks of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly or Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

It's criminal to keep the exquisite silk squares of Gucci, Liberty or Hermes in hiding! A silk scarf is a treasure. But when was the last time you actually wore one?

In a parallel universe, we'd all be knotting our silken treasures under our chins and slipping behind the wheel of a Jag convertible. But we're not. So what to do with the scarves one is occasionally fortunate enough to be gifted with? Why appreciate them of course!



Fine Silk scarves are genuine artistic achievements. There's the screen printing, engraving and coloring. Not to mention the winding of the silk skeins. All of which are produced in Brazil from the approximately 15 pounds of Mulberry leaves it takes to fuel the moths that lays enough silk worms to make one silk scarf.

So the least one can do is use them. It seems criminal to lock them up in drawers. If you're uneasy with the fashionable art of scarving, find an art framer. Transform a stairwell, a hallway, any expanse of empty wall space with your Gucci's, Pucci's, Fendi's and Chanels.
