    SPLICEDwire is on hiatus

    Dear friends and readers,

    Due to several converging circumstances, including family obligations and hitting a wall of exhaustion after 10 years of 70-hour work weeks (and more than 2,500 reviews and interviews), I'm putting SPLICEDwire and my content service on indefinite hiatus beginning September 30.

    I will still be attending some screenings, as I will probably to return to film journalism -- perhaps in a new format or with a new focus -- once I've rested and my obligations are resolved.

    If you would like to be notified when I return to writing about movies, please use this link to send me your email address

    Be seeing you!

    @:)

    IN THE MEANTIME...

    Here's the scoop:

    In the wake of a failed marriage, Josey Aimes (Theron) returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota hoping to build a better life for herself and her two children. Encouraged by her friend Glory (McDormand), one of the few female miners in town, Josey takes a job at the local mine. She's prepared for the back-breaking and often dangerous work, but coping with the harassment she and the other female miners encounter from their male coworkers proves far more challenging. Josey's attempts to carve out a better future for her family put her at odds with her children, her disapproving parents (Spacek and Six Feet Under's Richard Jenkins) and her community. It is through this struggle that Josey finds the courage to stand up for what she believes in ­ even if that means standing alone. Ultimately, her journey takes her farther than she could have ever imagined and inspires countless others to follow.
