Upcoming Film: A Five Star Life PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 21 August 2014 11:04

A Five Star Life is the sophisticated story of one woman's quest for personal and professional fulfillment set against some of the most stunning cities and opulent hotels of the world.

The film will hit the big screen in Knoxville at Regal Downtown West in late August.

Stylish and independent, Irene (Margherita Buy) is a single career woman in her forties with a job to die for. As a luxury hotel critic, she checks into the world's finest establishments incognito to assess their standards, meticulously judging every detail from the concierge's manners to the temperature of the food to the quality of the bedsheets. Her elegant, unattached lifestyle affords her the freedom to jet around the globe at a moment's notice to experience a world of luxury, but doesn't leave her with much of a personal life.

On the rare occasions she's not working, Irene's world revolves around her absent-minded sister Silvia (Fabrizia Sacchi), two lively young nieces, and best friend--and former lover--Andrea (Stefano Accorsi). But when Silvia begins to deal with marital problems and Andrea faces an unexpected life change, Irene's small support network is fractured and she struggles to balance a glamorous career with the growing desire for something more. After a chance meeting shakes up her worldview even more, she's compelled to reexamine her choices and charts her own path to happiness despite the expectations of others.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Colin Farrell is a finalist for one of the four central roles in the highly anticipated second season of True Detective. Other names that have been thrown around recently are Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund.

The show's anthology format cycles through an entire stand-alone story each season. The first eight episodes wrapped up an involving and gut-wrenching story that featured Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Monaghan along with a myriad of role-players to script one of the finest first seasons of any show in television history.

The second season will not only feature an entirely new cast but most likely a new director. Since the show aired its last episode in March, fans have been vehemently searching for any clues about what to expect for the second season of the HBO drama. Finally, after several dead-end rumors emerged, Farrell's name seems to have some legitimacy.

One person who could take the director's chair is William Friedkin. Friedkin is best known for directing films like The French Connection, The Exorcist, To Live and Die in LA and Blue Chips (Penny Hardaway's debut film!). His most recent film, dark comedy/thriller Killer Joe, featured McConaughey in the lead role. If Friedkin does get tapped as director, it will be a bit of a passing of the torch between two former colleagues. There is a small chance that season one director Cary Fukunaga will be involved with season two as well.

Where are you reading this right now? Home, work, at a restaurant or bar, on the john? Wherever it is, think about the building you’re in. Have you ever considered what was there before? Maybe it’s new and the answer is “a parking lot.” In this city, though, the odds are good that there was something else there before.

We’d notice if we opened our eyes, if we looked up beyond the entryway of our favorite bar or coffee shop. But who does that regularly? I know that I don’t. We look at the old buildings that house new restaurants, clothing stores and clubs, but never consider the story these building have to tell. The rich history of the concrete roads we cross, never once considering the cobblestone, or even dirt, that may have lain there once before.

Without our history, we merely exist. Without a desire to leave behind a legacy, or appreciate what our predecessors have left for us we’ll only ever be here and gone without any lasting impression. Heavy, I know, but no less true.

It’s exciting when some new establishment opens in a building that has stood vacant for years. And with Downtown and the Old City coming up the way they have in the last ten years, we see more and more of that each year.

Last month we talked about the need to eat naturally grown foods, and this month we go a bit deeper into the details.

Not only do I need to find a lifestyle that will work for me where I live but one that will work with my busy life.  I am committing to start with 7 changes in my lifestyle and diet. Here are my goals:

1. Eat whole foods - Organic whole fruits and vegetables, GMO free whole grains, local grass-fed and free-range meats, local low-fat dairy products, unsalted nuts, and seeds.

2. CSA- Since we cannot grow our own vegetables at the moment we are getting signed up for a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program where we pick up Organic Vegetable boxes weekly or bi weekly. Basically it’s a weekly surprise gift box. We don't pick what vegetables will be in our box but it’s great because we get to eat only what’s in season (like Grandma Johnston would have done) and get to try new recipes! Am I the only one stuck on broccoli, zucchini, and spinach when picking vegetables at the store? I'm ready for some new things.

3. Blending - Now I’ve never been one to get on this whole juicing trend because you can consume A LOT of sugar if all you juice is fruits. So I will be incorporating some juicing into my lifestyle. Well, actually "blending," not juicing.  I will not be skipping main meals but replacing some snacks with well-balanced drinks AKA not all fruit!!  I will juice to get all the veggies I need in a day as well as juicing to fight illness and colds by boosting my vitamin intake. I can’t wait to get my skin glowing because you know what you eat comes out of your skin, hair, and nails.

Clean Eating with Ashley Johnston from the Biggest Loser

I have been into "clean eating," or a more natural way of living for years now, even at my heaviest and before Biggest Loser, but at that time I was also still driving through the fast food lines.

At that time, I was in my early twenties and worked for Origins, a natural skin care company. That’s when I started to sell Dr. Andrew Weil's skin care line. I went through several training sessions to get educated on the importance of his line and his belief system of integrative medicine, and what he teaches about living a healthy, natural lifestyle. That's when my interest was first sparked into educating myself on what it all meant. After working for Origins (which P.S I still love the Dr. Weil line and still use it to this day), I became an esthetician and got a job working for Natural Alternatives, an Aveda spa. Through trainings and learning about the Aveda Lifestyle I became even more interested in this natural way of living. I guess you could say I lean towards a "hippie" state of mind.

I’ve tried it all. I’ve even been Vegan for 9 months, but threw in the towel when I only lost 15lbs and couldn't get the full lifestyle down. I know now I was living on packaged soy foods and carbohydrates, which is not what I'm going for either. While filming the Biggest Loser we were only allowed clean, organic food in the kitchen and my "clean eating education" only grew.
