Starring Dwayne Bartholomew, Nathan Sapsford, Shawn Parsons, Kristina Guerrero, Corrin Evans

Directed by J. Rick Castaneda

Written by J. Rick Castaneda

USA, 2014

Writer-director J. Rick Castaneda’s indie film Cement Suitcase has an off-kilter winning spirit that soars above its quirky pathos. Infectiously witty, irreverent and bouncy, Castaneda’s nifty narrative takes a charming approach to spotlighting one young man’s dalliances in wine and life lessons decline. Beautifully shot and fortified with solidly impish performances, Cement Suitcase is a reminder that our existences–no matter how stable, stagnant or scattered–are unpredictable and can never be as definitively defined as a vintage bottle of Merlot. Castaneda’s adventurous direction and smart writing arms this soothing dramedy gem with the right kind of gently wacky reflection and radiance.

Wine salesman Franklin Roew (Dwayne Bartholomew) leads somewhat of a dreary livelihood in Granger, Washington…a small-town rural hamlet situated in the Yakima Valley. »

Nando's fan still in quest for free food for life award after offer lapses

1 January 2014 10:26 PM, PST | | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, Jan. 2: A UK man splashed about 1,000 pounds trying to win the coveted Nando's black card, which guaranteed free meals for life, only to realise that the competition had closed.

The chicken chain had run a promotion campaign over two years ago, which offered a black card to anyone who could provide evidence that they had feasted at every one of their 1,031 outlets around the world, reported.

However, Christopher Poole realized his mistake only after visiting 85 branches in the UK and spending 1,000 pounds along the way.

It isn't all bad news for Poole, as the chain restaurant has agreed to honor its old promotion if he could complete the global challenge. (Ani) »
