Family re-creates movie scenes with cardboard boxes
Sealey declined to name the facility, but said it was in the “Greater Bay Area.” “It looks like we may have found a miracle to keep Jahi alive and to give her another fighting chance to wake up,” Sealey said. Family members have been locked in a battle withChildrens Hospital & Research Center Oakland, which they accuseofbeing callous in pushing to take Jahi off a ventilator, despite their wishes to continue her life support.

The couple now manages a blog titled Cardboard Box Office and theyve completed 15 photo shoots featuring movies ranging from Jaws to Die Hard. The charming images have been a huge hit and garnered media attention across the globe. The media attention has been overwhelming from The Today Show to financial papers to Disney, Lilly told SFGate. Leons favourite message was one from NASA saying that they were enjoying the photos. Its quite funny to think of a bunch of astrophysicists examining our makeshift space capsule in Apollo 13. We have received some really lovely messages from people saying that they were alone over the Christmas break and that our photos brought a smile to their face. I think thats what we appreciate the most. Leon and Lilly welcome suggestions from their fans and say the majority of the requests are for movies from the 70s and 80s.

‘August: Osage County’ brings drama to family table
The stagy nature of the story can make for claustrophobic as well as cringe-inducing viewing. The story teeters on melodrama, yet it can be bitterly, bleakly funny, full of devastating one-liners. As much as the brilliant Streep rules the movie, as she does the Weston roost, Roberts powerfully holds her own in their scenes together. While Streep’s Violet is an unrepentant harridan, Roberts’ Barbara is recognizably human, frustration furrowing her brow, weariness in her every move. She flushes away her mom’s pills, but that doesn’t lessen her seething. We can feel Barbara tempering her antagonism in moments when she experiences tenderness for her mom, just as she unleashes her bitterness when her mother”s brutal diatribes become too much. One of Roberts’ finest moments comes when Barbara feels her father’s loss most acutely.
