Review: Thank you, Denzel Washington!

There are people who you automatically associate with Pittsburgh, such as Wiz Khalifa, Andy Warhol, Bill Nunn, George Benson, and Mark Cuban. If you were to make a full list of notable Pittsburghers, August Wilson would undeniably be at the top of the list.

The Pulitzer Prize winning playwright manifested 10 iconic plays and Denzel Washington brought one of them right to our backyard. Washington, 61, should be commended for bringing “Fences” back home. He should also be admired for directing August Wilson’s “Fences” for mainstream media.

“My job was to take care of August Wilson, first,“ said Washington to a group of local cast and crew members who gathered in the South Side for a special screening on Tuesday.

Silence Passes

images-1

Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) – at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director’s 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo’s 1966 acclaimed novel to life will be in theaters this Christmas.

The Silence screening will be on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at AMC Waterfront 22, beginning at 7:30 PM.  Please comment below telling us what your ‘passion project’ is for a chance to win two tickets.  

My Passion Project is simple!  I’ve always been an advocate for premier public education.  But, in 2017, I also want to pay it forward through generosity and kindness.  I started with a kind gesture at a concert last night, but the idea is my selflessness and gentle spirit will be infectious and spread widely.

Live By Night Passes

Directed by and starring Ben Affleck, Live By Night is an action thriller set in the Prohibition Era and centered around a group of individuals in the world of organized crime.  What you put out into this world will always come back to you, but it never comes back how you predict. Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the WWI vet is a self-proclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen.

Warner Brothers’ Live By Night will be screening in the Waterfront on Monday, January 9th at 730PM.  Please comment below with your favorite Ben Affleck moment.
