DINING GWINNETTTASTES A selection of local eateries recently featured in the Gwinnett Daily Post: • Luciano’s Executive Chef John Soilis revamps the menu of the upscale eatery every three to four months to coincide with seasons and what ingredients are available fresh. A popular dish is the scallops and artichokes which is made with

linguine, pancetta and a garlic lemon butter sauce. Another popular menu item is the flatbread, which comes with a variety of toppings, including pepperoni, smoked chicken, prosciutto and more. Pasta, salads, steak and seafood dishes round out the dinner menu, while the lunch menu includes paninis. 6555 Sugarloaf Parkway, Suite 309, Duluth. 770-255-1727

• Three Blind Mice The restaurant uses all fresh ingredients and makes all dishes from scratch, requiring menu changes to keep with what is in season. The breakfast menu changes daily, and each day they write what is on the menu for the morning on the large chalk board in the bar. This gives the restaurant more of a coffee shop feel in the

morning. If you are looking for a large breakfast, try their Sunday brunch. They offer many great items including eggs Benedict. Dinner and lunch are their busiest meals. The food has a homemade quality. Some of the customers’ favorites include the Steak Diane, lump crab cakes and the iceberg salad. All three of these items have survived menu changes.

1066 Killian Hill Road, Suite 101, Lilburn. 770-696-4139. www.tbmrestaurant.com • Maracas Cantina Maracas Cantina, known for its various fish platters, combines Dominican, Mexican, Portuguese and Cuban flavors, resulting in an exotic and rich Latin fusion. One popular menu selection is the Pescado Culiacan, a

tilapia filet marinated with herbs and garlic in spicy chipotle-habanero sauce and bacon wrapped shrimp smothered in jalapeno pepper cheese. The California Burrito, another popular item, is stuffed with rice, black beans, lettuce, tomato, avocado, sour cream and a choice of meat. 320 Town Center Ave., Suwanee. 678-765-6611

ART BEAT Aurora Theatre takes home 3 ‘Suzi Awards’ for excellence The best of metro Atlanta’s theatre productions were honored at the 6th annual SUZI Awards on Nov. 8 in a gala evening presentation which glittered with the region’s theatrical royalty. Among those in attendance were representatives of Gwinnett’s own Aurora Theatre, which took home three SUZI Awards. The Aurora Theatre shared the spotlight with such prominent organizations as the Alliance Theatre, the Georgia Shakespeare Theatre, Kenny Leon’s True Colors and more. In total, 17 theatres were represented. The Aurora was nominated for 11 SUZI Awards. The three SUZI’s awarded to the Aurora were: Best Featured Actress in a Play, which went to Nita Hardy in “Boeing Boeing;” Best Lead Actress in a Musical, which went to Ingrid Cole for “A Catered Affair;” and Best Music Direction which went to Ann Carol Pence for “A Catered Affair.” The award for Pence, Aurora’s associate producer, was especially appreciated. She said, “I am especially thankful that the SUZI Awards chose to single out a category for ‘Best Musical Direction.’ For some incomprehensible reason, Broadway does not acknowledge the accomplishments of the music director. Hopefully in the next decade, we will see Broadway finally acknowledge the hard work a music director lends to creating a great final product.” Pence had been nominated almost every year for a SUZI in this category with Aurora and other area theaters. “I did not expect to win,”

she said. “We do not operate at the same budget as the Alliance Theatre, and they are singled out every year for musical excellence. This year, they had two music nominations, so it was an honor being nominated with them. Lisa Cremin of the Metropolitan Atlanta Arts Fund

announced the winners in my category, and when she said my name, I was just thrilled. “Winning this award for ‘A Catered Affair’ puts many of my beliefs into perspective. I believe Gwinnett County deserves professional theater. I believe new musicals deserve a place in the catalog of great American Theatre. And, I believe that the ‘correct’ key in which to sing a song is the key that an actor sounds best singing.” “On a national level, receiving accolades for our work demonstrates to composers and playwrights that they can trust Aurora with their work. We will pay close attention to their

words, to their musical intentions. Art is all we have. We are desperate to create great theater.” Aurora won the first SUZI of the night when Nita Hardy was honored for Best Featured Actress in a Play. After starting off so well, the evening only got better. Each of the nominees for best musical theater performed a number during the show. Both Ingrid Cole and Glenn Rainey, who was also nominated for “A Catered Affair,” got to sing. “I love this part of the evening,” Pence said. “It is the only time I get to sit back and enjoy the moment as an audience member. I always sit behind the piano for Aurora’s musicals, so I miss

the opportunity to enjoy the level of talent we cast.” Audiences can appreciate the Aurora’s multi-talented artists throughout the holiday season in their annual “Christmas Canteen” which runs from Nov. 26 through Dec. 23. Also, be sure to put their next musical on the

calendar. “Academy” will open in March. For more information, visit the website at www.auroratheatre.com. Holley Calmes is a freelance writer and public relations consultant specializing in the arts. E-mail her at hcalmes@mindspring.com.

LOCAL EVENT Dream House holding country-themed event to raise funds BY KAITLYN PEEL Staff Intern

Scoot your boots on down to the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds on Saturday for the sixth annual Boot Scootin’ Barn Raiser for the Dream House. The Dream House was created to give children with complex health care issues the chance to live their childhood in a dream home. Dream House for Medically Fragile Children Inc. was incorporated in 2001, and is a nonprofit charity organization. It is the first and only licensed Children’s Transition Care Center in the U.S. The event has a country theme and there will

be a BBQ dinner, drinks, dancing and auction items for the attendees to bid on. “(The Boot Scootin’ Barn Raiser) is a fun event that is put on with a country theme to help the Dream House,” said Lauri Wood, Dream House events manager. Reservations are required, and you must be 21 and up to attend. Reservations and sponsorships range in price from $75 to $1,000, all of which include dinner and bar access. General admission is $75 per person, the bronze-level sponsorship is $250 and includes two VIP reservations, the silver-level sponsorship is $500 and includes four VIP reservations and the

gold-level sponsorship is $1,000 and includes VIP table and eight reservations, event promo and table signage. To purchase a sponsorship or make a reservation, call 770-717-7410. Last year this fundraiser alone raised more than $30,000. Most of these proceeds go to treatment of the medically fragile children at the Dream House in Lilburn. This can really make a difference to the house; on average it costs $500 to fund a child a day. The Dream House also puts on two other large, local fundraisers a year, a golf tournament and a concert in Lilburn City Park.

don’t know it yet, but someone has been murdered and all signs indicate the culprit is Lara Brennan (Elizabeth Banks). At no point does Haggis ever include details of an investigation or a trial and only pays lip service to details of the crime. In the space of mere seconds three years pass and we next see Lara in a Pittsburgh jail being visited by her husband John (Russell Crowe) and their standoffish young son Luke (Ty Simpkins). After an intolerable stretch of subsequent visits with Lara and the realization she’ll never get a retrial, John decides he’s going to bust her out of the slammer.

criminal these days, does Internet searches to flesh out the remainder of his master plan. The only thing missing is Haggis’ inclusion of the non-existent “Jailbreak for Dummies” how-to book. The one thing Haggis regurgitates ad nauseum is John’s need for lots of folding cash, something he has little of as he is an English teacher at a local community college. More time is killed as John tries to procure black market passports and other illegitimate forms of identification in order to escape the country after springing Lara. Up to this point, Haggis gets us to root heavily for John who, although fumbling and bumbling the entire time, wins us over

with his sad, puppy-dog eyes, endless devotion to Lara and his loping, shuffling gait. Out of options and believing he has nothing left to lose, John decides to break bad and goes from being a loving husband with a cause to a deranged criminal. Although some audience members will remain empathetic, John’s severe course of action will transform him into just another thug in the eyes of most viewers. It won’t spoil anything for you to know that Lara has no idea what John has been up to but her reaction when she finds out isn’t quite what we’d expect or want. The further the story lurches forward, the more we come to not caring at all about what happens to

her. Like John, she pulls a stunt that completely negates any compassion we might have felt. As impossible and implausible as it may seem, Haggis is also able to write the Luke character — a child who says next to nothing the entire time — in a mostly negative and unflattering manner. Normally, a movie like this would be an excellent counter-programming alternative when opening opposite a new “Harry Potter” movie. Because it is the only other new major studio release this weekend, many people — mostly intelligent adults who love thrillers — are going to pay good money to see it. Man, are they ever going to be extremely disappointed. (Lionsgate)


Franco superb in style-heavy ‘127 Hours’ 127 Hours (R) ★★★★ ★ BY MICHAEL CLARK Movie Critic

In “127 Hours,” real-life rock climber Aron Ralston (James Franco) falls into a deep crevasse in the middle of nowhere somewhere in Utah and has a standoff with the elements. Actually it’s just one element — a boulder that fell down with him and pinned the lower half of his right arm against a wall. Ralston spent five days trying to figure out a way to escape and ultimately came to the same realization many animals do when caught in traps. He severed off part of his arm in order save his own life. By most accounts, “127 Hours” is a 90-minute exercise in style impersonating an inspirational drama. Everything in it that’s pertinent to the story and worth watching could easily fit into a 30-minute Discovery Channel special with room left over for commercials. Man falls into ravine, man cuts off arm, man escapes. By no means a waste of time, “127 Hours” does show just how much can go wrong when a director picks material completely unsuitable to his style. Beginning with “Shallow Grave” and right up to his Oscar win two years ago for “Slumdog Millionaire,” Danny Boyle has established himself as one of the industry’s most daring visual artists. Boyle’s hyper, ultra-flamboyant approach works well within an arthouse or horror framework (“A Life Less Ordinary” “Trainspotting,” “28 Days Later”) but becomes the Achilles’ heel for more contemplative fare such as

and Kate Mara) where they frolic scantily clad in a natural underground pool and just the slightest whiff of sexual adventure is released only to immediately dissipate. With Ralston planted, Boyle must resort to dream and fantasy sequences or place micro-sized cameras in the most intrusive of locations. Want to see the pimple inside of Franco’s nose or perhaps see urine filling a water bottle from the bottle’s perspective? Boyle’s got it covered. Though interesting in its own way but totally unrelat-

ed is a condensed history of a failed relationship Ralston shared with an unnamed woman (Clémence Poésy) that is used to symbolize a lifetime or regret and missed chances — or maybe not. We’re not sure if its dream or a fantasy. It doesn’t matter — it has nothing to do with a guy stuck in a cave. For everything bad hap-

pening to him and his character, Franco is never less than astonishing the entire time and is already on most people’s short list for a Best Actor Oscar nomination. If had been paired with a director with more patience, Werner Herzog or Win Wenders perhaps, there’s no telling how much better he and the film could have been. (Fox Searchlight)

MICHAEL CLARK

The World at War (Blu-ray) (NR) Movie: ★★★★ Disc: ★★★★ With more than 26 hours of material spread over nine discs, the documentary “The World at War” contains everything you could possibly want to know about World War II and then some. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier and originally broadcast in 1973 on PBS, the exhaustively detailed production covers both famous and obscure events with the same unbiased eye while also putting heavy emphasis on the causes and aftermath. Considering the iffy quality of most of the original footage, the restoration is remarkable and wholly deserving of this new Blu-ray overhaul. Technical specs: aspect ratio: Widescreen (1.78:1), audio: English (Dolby DTS-HD MA 5.1, 2.0 Stereo), subtitles: English. Special features include: • Eight bonus documentaries • Three making-of featurettes • Biographies and photo galleries • Famous songs, speeches, quotes and maps (A&E Home Video, $149.95)

Diane Keaton is also in a familiar role, complete with histrionics and what lately seems like her at least once-permovie frustration scream. I thought that there would be more interaction between Ford and Keaton, which is probably what the older audience members thought I enjoyed this fun come- as well. The obvious main player in this movie is dy starring the talented Rachel McAdams, a very Rachel McAdams.

MOVIES NOWSHOWING Recently reviewed films now playing in theaters: • Due Date (R) Director Todd Phillips’ follow-up to “The Hangover” is an occasionally funny road flick in the vein of “Trains, Planes and Automobiles.” “Hangover” sick puppy Zach Galifianakis gives us more and less of the same while paired with a rigid Robert Downey Jr. 21⁄2 stars — Michael Clark • Fair Game (PG-13) This engrossing political thriller about former C.I.A. agent Valerie Plame (Naomi Watts) and her ambassador hus-

band Joe Wilson (Sean Penn) — based on their own books — chronicles one of the most blatant misuses of power in American history. 31⁄2 stars — MC • For Colored Girls (R) Filmmaker Tyler Perry’s adaptation of the landmark abstract play gets minor points for good intent and acting but is ultimately torpedoed by Perry’s exaggerated melodramatic tendencies, an overlong running time and a tonally erratic screenplay. 2 stars — MC • Inside Job (PG-13) Charles Ferguson’s exhaus-

tively thorough documentary about the 2008 worldwide financial meltdown and its causes is slickly produced, plainly explains complicated financial practices and it is guaranteed to making you boiling mad — again. 31⁄2 stars — MC • Megamind (PG) This clever riff on the “superhero origins” genre at times resembles the first “Shrek” and “Despicable Me” and features great voice talent, especially Tina Fey. The 3-D is far less than spectacular and there are just enough clichés to knock it down a notch. 3 stars — MC

Director wanted to show disease can hit early in life BY MICHAEL CLARK Movie Critic

Next week marks the release of “Love and Other Drugs” starring Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal and directed by Edward Zwick. Having first gained notoriety as the creator of the landmark TV shows “thirtysomething” and “My So Called Like,” Zwick went on to amass an impressive feature film resume, including “Glory,” “The Last Samurai,” “Courage Under Fire,” “Legends of the Fall,” “About Last Night...” and “Blood Diamond.” Zwick recently toured the country promoting the film which included a stop in Atlanta. Michael Clark: Was it just me or did this movie bear more than a strong resemblance to “About Last Night...?” Edward Zwick: I think they’re cousins. It looks closely at a sometimes testy relationship without any easy answers. MC: You’re mixing a bawdy sex comedy with a drama about disease. That’s an odd pairing. EZ: I wanted to show that Parkinson’s can begin early — in this case with someone in their 20s — like my friend Michael J. Fox. He self-medicated and was in denial for a long time, and generally speaking movies focusing on a disease like this concentrate on older individuals. That it can happen to such a vital, sexually charged woman like Anne’s character I think makes it all the more poignant. Being that it is set

in the mid-’90s just after the FDA removed restrictions regarding the advertising of prescription drugs on television also played into the story. We chose Viagra because it was the most obvious and recognizable, but there were many drugs advertised for other ailments that began suggesting a quick fix for everything and it affected our society in a huge way.

overlook. It was my approach — and she agreed completely — that if you’re making a serious movie about disease, drugs and sex, you can’t sanitize the nudity and show people in bed with the sheets pulled up to their chins. She also understood that the character used her beauty and sexuality to protect herself against intimacy and letting anyone get to close to her.

EZ: They were real patients and almost all of it was unscripted. We had met with them over the course of a couple days and the thing that struck me about them as a whole was just how upbeat they were. Humor was a constant thread in their stories and by poking fun at themselves, I think the audience will walk away with a different opinion about the disease.

MC: Anne Hathaway has quite a few nude scenes in this movie. Was that ever an issue for her? EZ: Anne is the real deal and a very serious actress, something people often

MC: There’s a scene in the movie where you feature a Parkinson’s support group sharing what are some rather hilarious stories about themselves. Were those actors or real patients?

MC: Are you worried that you might not be reaching your desired audience with the “R” rating? EZ: Not at all. I think this is an “over 17” type of film, which is what we

wanted and how it is being received. “About Last Night...” was rated “R” and it did pretty well. MC: Were you aware during casting that Anne and Jake played a married

couple in “Brokeback Mountain?” EZ: Not until after they had been cast. Yes, they were married in that movie, but not in the traditional sense and certainly not like they are seen in this film.

Outgoing Fla. gov. wants Jim Morrison pardoned BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON The Associated Press

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Outgoing Florida Gov. Charlie Crist wants a state pardon for long-dead rocker Jim Morrison, who was convicted of exposing himself at a raucous 1969 concert in Miami. Crist said Wednesday he’s convinced that prosecutors at the time were trying

to make an example of The Doors lead singer rather than try a legitimate case. Crist said, ‘‘We all have a responsib i l i t y Jim Morrison w h e r e appropriate to seek forgiveness.’’ Crist will need the sup-

port of at least two other Cabinet members to approve a pardon, which may be more ceremonial since Florida doesn’t have procedures for posthumous pardons. Morrison died in 1971 in Paris while appealing his conviction. Crist, a Republicanturned-independent, lost his bid for a U.S. Senate seat earlier this month.

Welcome to... If hot wings, cold beer and amazing service is what you’re looking for in Gwinnett County, YOUR ORDER’S UP at Twisted Tavern. The two, newly remodeled locations in Suwanne and Sugar Hill have quickly become the hot gathering spot for young and old alike and continues to satisfy an array of appetites. Twisted burgers, Tavern sandwiches and Gnarly nachos are just a sample of the creative items that can be enjoyed from the menu. But according general manager, Chris Shaffstall, the true key to the success of both lively pubs is the entertainment. “There’s something to do at both locations every night of the week,” said Shaffstall. With over twenty years in the

restaurant industry, Shaffstall has made sure Twisted Tavern is not your average watering hole. “We have much better quality ingredients on our menu and the best looking staff in the state. Our average entree cost around $6.00 because I made sure to keep our prices lower than other places around”, Shaffstall stated. And if you missed last week’s boxing main event, Pacquiao versus Margarito, at the Suwanee location, you can catch Ultimate Fighting Championship 123 this Saturday at 9:00 PM when Rampage takes on Machida. Or if you’re in the mood for live music, you can listen to homegrown celebrities, Full Frontal, jam at the Sugar Hill tavern also this Saturday night. “We also have Texas Hold ’Em, NASCAR and Football, karaoke, trivia and live music going on at both locations every night of the week,” Shaffstall stated. And to all the car truck and motorcycle enthusiasts, Shaffstall invites you out every Friday for the Friday Night Cruise-In at Twisted

Tavern Sugarhill from 6:00 to 9:00 with an entry fee of only $5 per vehicle. We have everything you need at either location. Whether you’re a sports fanatic or a business man or woman looking for a good spot for an after work happy hour, we have it all at Twisted Tavern great food, great drinks and always a great time. We’re an over 18 tavern, Shaffstall stated, “and smoking is permitted. We offer enjoyment in an adult setting. So, check us out online at twistedtavern.net when you’re looking for something to do. We guarantee you’ll enjoy the experience.”
