March 27, 2017

A number of us have pets: dogs, cats, fish etc. But imagine a world where no being was owned by anyone and yet communities, families and individuals who coexist with animals while considering them to be their own children. This reality is true in the city of Istanbul, the setting for the moving documentary...

Aware of Disney’s propensity for sappiness--yet ecstatic to see my childhood favorite Disney princess come to life in this live action rendition--I entered the theater to see “Beauty and the Beast” with one of my closest friends.
