Grasshopper films giving Lodge Kerrigan’s beautiful movie Keane a 4K restoration and bringing it back to life on big screen across the US is a highlight on its own. And when the 4K restored Keane screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center is coupled with the director and the actor Damian Lewis intoducing the film together, watching it with the audience and doing a lively Q&A after the screening makes it a top moment! And I feel very privileged to have shared that special evening – full house at Francesca Beale Theater – with Mr. Kerrigan, Damian and my fellow independent movie fans. The evening felt like a collective celebration of independent cinema.

Helen McCrory was a class act not only in her acting career but also in life and death.

Her personality and life deserve a big celebration and we are thrilled to share with you the way Damian has kept celebrating Helen all year long.

I had a 72-hour lightning trip to London in November for a special weekend with fan friends and a fantastic evening of music at The Tabernacle London in Notting Hill with the one and only Damian Lewis! It was such a night that, more than a month later, I am still the under the spell of Damian’s spectacular performance and ready to tell you all about how our ‘Ginger Elvis’ ruled on the stage and off – he made time for everyone, VIPs and fans alike, after the gig. So please come join me in the beautiful and inspiring music hall that is The Tabernacle London, and live or re-live ( if you were lucky enough to be there) every single detail from that glorious evening.
