Dylan and Ethan are extraordinary in their love for film, and everything about film.  These boys are serious–they make films, write screen plays, and review films on their blog.  They do their homework, too.  I remember once seeing stacks and stacks of books on film and film criticism in their room, and I know they can’t wait for the New York Times Sunday paper so that they can pore over the movie reviews there.

Last night, at the boy’s annual family Pre-Oscar Party (I told you they were serious–they once held the party Oscar night, but the adults were too noisy and they couldn’t hear the show, so now the party is the night before) we were treated to great food, conversation, and movie screenings of two Academy Award nominated films, 20 Feet from Stardom, and Frozen.  And, a moment we all look forward to:  Dylan and Ethan’s Oscar winner predictions.  […]
