Eve and the Fire Horse is a whimsical Canadian drama written and directed by Vancouver-based Julia Kwan. The film serves as a true melting pot of story telling as it uses imagination and honesty flawlessly. It explores faith from a child’s perspective and dives right into multiculturalism, religion, innocence and childhood. The great thing is that anyone, from any religion or at any age, should be able to both understand and relate to the film.
Laura Dern is back for the second season of Enlightened on HBO. She plays Amy, “a self-destructive woman who has a spiritual awakening becomes determined to live an enlightened life, creating havoc at home and work” (IMDb). Enlightened is a sophisticated mix of drama and comedy; dramedy. It definitely enters the realm of a ‘dark comedy’ as it depicts issues like depression and spirituality. Enlightened may seem a bit dry or light at times, but that’s when the writing, acting and themes flaunt their heaviness and pull on your heart strings.
Season 2 of Enlightened premieres January 13th 2013 on HBO.
