Movie Review: The old Redford and the sea

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"All Is Lost" is a harrowing tale about a sailor lost at sea.

What's the big deal about that, you might say?

The big deal is that the sailor is played by none other than Robert Redford.

And, at 77, the filming of "All Is Lost" was also likely a harrowing experience for Redford.

"All Is Lost" is all Redford. The character he plays, simply called "Our Man," is the only person in the film, and he's on-screen for virtually the entire film.

The film begins with a voice-over narration by Redford and then a title card tells us it's "Eight Days Earlier."

The Backpack Project: Self-respect in place

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by BATHSHEBA MONK Special to The Press in Focus

"When children enter foster care, it is a crisis. They are scared because everyone they meet is a stranger," says Pamela Buehrle, Director of the Lehigh County Office of Children and Youth Services whose office works in the community with children and families.

"They are missing family, separated from their siblings, moved from school, friends, daily activities. Children long for their mother or father, no matter how difficult the situation is at home," Buehrle says.
