Art Beat: Pens to Lens simply a great idea

One recent event I was sorry to miss (for a profound reason) was the Pens to Lens gala May 29 at the Art Theater in downtown Champaign, when children whose screenplays had been made into movies by local filmmakers walked the red carpet into the movie house.

There they saw on a big screen what their imaginations had wrought.

Summaries and mini-reviews of movies playing now, from e3 magazine:


Chuck Koplinski: 'Mud' shines as one of year's best films

While many critics have compared Jeff Nichols' new film "Mud" to Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," primarily because of the movie's Mississippi River setting, it is, in fact, far closer to Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations" in theme and purpose.
