A Review of Best Picture Nominee, Amour

If the emotional response evoked by a film is any measure of greatness, then Amour wins. After seeing the film, I cried most of the car ride home from the theatre, and then once in the bathroom when I got home. My eyes are welling up right now thinking about it. I am so incredibly sad. I was thinking, with the title being Amour , that I might see more of a traditional love story, albeit a senior citizen love story.

Exploring the Origins of the Charleston

My recent trip to Charleston, South Carolina was incredible. I have wanted to visit the city for years and I was delighted to partake in historical tours, hearing tales of the American Revolution and the Civil War, leisurely strolls and an abundance of delectable food and drink. The week-long getaway was exactly what the doctor ordered to cure the stresses, anxieties, and routine of day-to-day life.

About

Antoinette Weil

I earned my BA from the University of Massachusetts concentrating in Legal Studies and Communications. I am currently living and working in the Boston area but am looking to relocate this fall.

I write for a national LGBT news and entertainment publication with a readership of 1.1 million, called EDGE Media Network.

I also work for a travel and literature company called Literary Traveler, whose core mission is examining great authors and works of literature through the places that inspired them. This is a job of many hats. I am a writer, editor, marketing coordinator, event planner, and photographer.

Outside of writing, I enjoy the beach, travel, politics, talk radio, good food, cold beer, and strong coffee.
