The Nightingale Movie Review

Brutal 'Nightingale' Worth Listening To

Be wary of "The Nightingale," a powerful new movie worth seeking out should you choose to do so. It's a brutal and deeply upsetting film at almost every turn, but director Jennifer Kent ("The Babadook") handles the film's unsettling moments with purpose and conviction. Even so, be warned before entering the film.
Set in colonial Australia in 1825, Clare (Aisling Franciosi) has been enslaved by British commander Lieutenant Hawkins (Sam Claflin) for seven years. She is treated as a servant by Hawkins and his men, serving them food and drinks and being subjected to their crude comments and gestures.

Such is largely the scenario with the redesigned Apple iPad 2. Following up an absolutely insane launch of the first generation iPad in 2010, with long lines, sellouts and extended backorders, Apple has introduced a new and improved lineup. The iPad 2 is available in the same three capacities as last year (16, 32 and 64 gigabytes of embedded flash memory) and in both basic Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models. But this year the compatible carrier choices have broadened to either AT&T or new partner Verizon Wireless.

Apple iPad Review

iPod XLCan a piece of consumer electronics hardware be the third party in an illicit love triangle? Case in point, my cousin, who played with the Apple iPad 64GB on and off for two days during my loaner period, fell for it so hard that he immediately put his name on the waiting list, and shortly after it arrived, his wife suspected that he would be leaving her for it. While my professional reaction wasn't quite so severe, I admit that the iPad is, shall we say, seductive.
Whenever I get in the really cool gadgets, I solicit the opinions of family and friends, starting with my nuclear brood and working outward. My wife is now figuring out all the ways this thing could fit into her busy life. My kids keep asking me "Where's the iPad?" And even the techno-phobic older generation picked up the touch interface almost immediately, then asked me to leave them the hell alone so they could explore.
