Saw "Whale Rider" last night with my talented friend Brian Colonna of the illustrious Bunport Theater (http://www.buntport.com). A little theater where they occasionally allow me to grace the stage. Although grace may not be the right word. Anyway, the movie was great. Although you can easily figure out the ending, it is more of a fable than a complex tale. Great for young girls. Moving story. Great scenery. Brian and I both got a little teary-eyed. Go see it. ASAP. And take a kid with you. It has a great "girls can do anything" message.
