Movie review: First Man

First Man.jpg

First Man — Running Time: 2:18 — Rating: PG-13

“First Man,” the story of Neil Armstrong’s successful moon landing, is both a technical triumph and a deeply personal portrait of a couple. The degree of your enthusiasm for it will probably be determined by your interest in the subject itself. If you have no interest in the moon landing you may feel lukewarm because the film is focused entirely on the people and the feat.

Editor's note: The response from Ruth Hardy that we published in Thursday's print edition and here on addisonindependent.com mistakenly left off the last two paragraphs of her response. It was our mistake. We are printing the enitre respone below. Appologies to the candidate.

The six candidates for the Senate seats representing Addison County, Huntington and Buel’s Gore were asked to comment on five important issues.

Today, for the third issue, we asked each of them to address climate change with the following prompt:

Fair Haven independent in the mix for governor

Chuck Laramee.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Twenty-seven years ago, Chuck Laramie had reached his personal abyss.

A slave to alcohol and recreational drugs, he was so intoxicated one night that a police officer insisted on driving him home.

“He asked me what I was going to do when I got home, and I told him I had a loaded .38 (handgun) in my drawer and I was going to stick it in my mouth and get it all over with,” Laramie recalled. “That was my plan if it got real bad — that’s how I was going to end my addiction.”

By October, many people assume all the flowers in the garden are finished for the year. This is the season for the trees and forests to bask in their colorful glory — and for the leaf peepers to take to their cars.

But do not write the garden off too hastily. October has plenty of delights in store for gardeners too.

Movie review: A Simple Favor

Posted on October 8, 2018 |
By Joan Ellis



Movie Review.jpg

A Simple Favor— Running Time: 1:57 — Rating: R

“A Simple Favor” hands us the gift of unpredictability. After dutifully trying to follow its early twists and turns, we realize there’s no point to that so we settle in to enjoy its craziness. What unfolds is quite like movies of the ’40s and ’50s when audiences didn’t ask comedies to make sense; they just asked them to make fun. That happens here.
