Stonehearst Asylum


Directed by Brad Anderson
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Jim Sturgess, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley 

Watch the trailer:

Millennium Entertainment will release STONEHEARST ASYLUM in theaters and On Demand October 24, 2014.

PG-13 | 110 minutes
England, 1899. When young doctor Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) arrives at Stonehearst Asylum in search of an apprenticeship, he is warmly welcomed by superintendent Dr. Lamb (Ben Kingsley) and a mesmerizing woman named Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale). Edward is intrigued by Lamb’s modern methods of treating the insane…until a series of unusual events leads him to make a horrifying discovery, exposing Lamb’s utopia and pushing Edward to the limits of his conscience. 

Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s short story The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether, STONEHEARST ASYLUM is a tale in which nobody is who or what they appear to be.

Review: In a world where most movies rely on nudity, bad language and explosions to cover for poor writing and lack of good story, telling this Movie stands out as what a great movie should be. This one pushes all my happy buttons. Great cast, amazing writing, twists and turns you never expect, mystery and a little love story.  Not to mention that I love a good costume drama. This reminds me a little of Shutter Island. All the twists and turns. Who is is telling the truth who is crazy. And just when you think you have it all figured out...BOOM something totally unexpected makes you question everything again. This is a movie you can watch over and over. It has all the elements to make it a modern classic. This is what moving making should be.

My Sienna Story- #LetsGoPlaces

When I drive around town every third mini van seems to be a Toyota Sienna. When I talk to other moms, they all seem to have a Sienna Story. I even had a guy talk fondly to me about taking his drivers test in his moms Sienna when he saw my Sienna. So I thought I would share My Sienna Story.

Toyota and I go way back. One of my first cars was a 1977 Toyota Celica 5 speed. That was one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. When I passed it on to my brother it had over 200,000 miles on the engine and was still running like a top. I paid $500 for the thing and when my brother traded it in on his new Toyota in 1996 he got $500 for it. That is what I call a good value.

Making a Memorable Visit to Heavenly Seychelles

Whenever I think of the most heavenly abode I have been to, I am reminded of Seychelles with its beautiful islands off African eastern coast of Africa. But we also know that isolation and immaculate environment come with price. The trip to Seychelles may cost you quite a fortune. It certainly is not budget destination. The country primarily caters for the honeymoon goers, celebrities and the luxury tourists.

Mom Said It Was Okay

 I do not drink soda. I stopped a few years back upon discovering that the aspartame in my favorite diet soda was the source of my migraines. Seven years later I am migraine and soda free. A few years back I bought a Soda Stream so my kids would not be drinking High Fructose Corn Syrup. I figured I should probably care as much about their health as I do about mine. Over time I have noticed that they are frankly too lazy to make their own soda. I
