Here is “The Greatest” plot description:

An award-winning drama that represents Shana Feste’s debut as a writer and director, “The Greatest” stars Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon as Allen and Grace Brewer. They’re a grief-stricken couple whose family has been pushed to the breaking point by the death of their older son, Bennett, in a car crash.

When a young woman, Rose, (Cary Mulligan) shows up a few months later announcing that she is pregnant with Bennett’s child, the Brewers are forced to take her in. At first, Rose’s presence threatens to tear the family even further apart. Eventually, her interaction with each of the Brewers proves to be the very thing that brings them back together.

“The Greatest” trailer can be watched now below.

The Greatest Movie - Silver Lining

The Silver Lining is that when a tragedy occurs, it helps one to put things into perspective, helps one to appreciate what one does still have, and brings out the best in some people.

I have been lucky enough to not personally experience any tragedies in my life.

Learning how fragile life really is and apreciating each day.

There is always a silver lining to any situation

… all you need to have is a perspective to view it.

I hold the belief that there is something to learn in everything that happens. 5% of life is what happens to you, and 95% is how you react to it.

Right now, where I currently stand, screams “You’ll leave, if it hurts you bad enough.”

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019. Click here for details, including ticket information.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
