Those not wanting to brave the long lines and crowds of Avatar have an alternative.
And it’s a Swedish film. Tri-Cities doesn’t get many of them.
Based on the true story of Swedish pioneer photographer Maria Larsson, Everlasting Moments has the stiff, brownish look and feel of a photograph from the early 1900s.
Like the process of decades ago, the film takes time and patience to develop into the perfect picture. This is not a bad thing. Even the instant digital types will find the film fulfilling.
This is a very, very good movie with unexpected twists and turns that give a fascinating glimpse of Scandinavian social and political history.
