Code Pink: "Senators Kirk, Schumer, and Menendez have sponsored an AIPAC-written bill S. 1881 that will impose new sanctions on Iran. The Administration has said this bill will kill diplomacy with Iran and President Obama has called it a "march to war" since it will effectively end nuclear talks. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid can stop this bill by not allowing it to come up for a vote. Don't undermine this golden chance for diplomacy to work; ask Senate Majority Leader Reid to keep the bill off the floor. "

“Krzysztof Kieślowski’s international breakthrough remains one of his most beloved films, a ravishing, mysterious rumination on identity, love, and human intuition. Irène Jacob is incandescent as both Weronika, a Polish choir soprano, and her double, Véronique, a French music teacher. Though unknown to each other, the two women share an enigmatic, emotional bond, which Kieślowski details in gorgeous reflections, colors, and movements. Aided by Slawomir Idziak’s shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner’s haunting, operatic score, Kieślowski creates one of cinema’s most purely metaphysical works. The Double Life of Véronique is an unforgettable symphony of feeling.”
