Touched with Fire: Movie Review

by Christine F. Anderson


Touched with Fire: Not your conventional love story.
Carla (Katie Holmes) is a bipolar poet who struggles to remember what she was like before she got sick. Marco (Luke Kirby) is also a bipolar poet, off his meds, who walks around New York City obsessively drawing chalk images of the moon as he talks endlessly about the Apocalypse. When the two find themselves checked into the same mental institution, the stars align and a romance is formed, the attraction being the similarities of their respective psychoses.

Finding Yourself – in Film

by Christine Autrand Mitchell



I used to write and edit for KRL, until I moved to Portland, Oregon. If you ask me what I do, I’d have a hard time answering you, hence my handle on Twitter: @dilettantegal! I’m an optioned screenwriter as well as a script consultant/coach. I have published fiction and non-fiction and am a freelance editor and writer. My film and television credits include Screenwriter, Producer, Director, Casting Director, and a bunch of other crew jobs. I also work with arts organizations to get their business side functioning properly. This is my second career; I used to be a business consultant.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: Movie Review

by Christine Autrand Mitchell



The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a retirement community in India where the Brits can “outsource” their “elderly and beautiful.” Directed masterfully by John Madden (The Debt, Shakespeare in Love, Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown) with some of the best older generation actors Britain has to offer: Dame Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Tom Wilkinson, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, and I could go on. I’ve been waiting months for this film and it didn’t disappoint.

Millenium Trilogy – Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson: A Writer’s View

by Christine Autrand Mitchell



I am a literary fiction fan, both as a reader and as a writer, but I needed a break. Something in the universe led me to Stieg Larsson’s Millenium trilogy: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest. I am so grateful for it. As a teenager I read through the Agatha Christie books but pretty much abandoned mystery/thrillers since then, other than film.

Thread: Original Short Story

by Christine Autrand Mitchell




Our lives unraveled off a circular stairwell that spun upwards into eternity, made up of a large turquoise dome, like the heavens painted on ceilings in cloisters and monasteries across Europe, where I once fell in love with the color. It was encircled in a giant gold band, to protect it from the visceral. A polished wooden railing held up by fragile, narrow rungs accompanied you on the way, the corporeal matrix of our design cast below the heavens. I never looked up when traversing the stairway because I knew I didn’t have to, not there. I was safe there. But we each finished alone in the end, completing our journey in our own mysterious shells just as we started.

Finding Hope

by Christine Autrand Mitchell



So sometimes art mirrors life, and sometimes it’s the other way round, but the local feature film, Finding Hope Now, has done both, passing through some sort of prism. It was shot in Fresno in 2009 and I was privileged to work on this film as Producer as well as the chance to wear several other hats. This is the film’s amazing story thus far.
