This image, released by A24 Films, shows Scarlett Johansson in a scene from "Under the Skin."

ICYMI: Take a look at 'Under the Skin' on Netflix If I hadn’t read a review of Under the Skin prior to seeing it, I would likely have abandoned ship after approximately half an hour, wondering what in the world I’d gotten myself into. As it was, though, I had an inkling when I approached the film, so I toughed it out. In fact, I toughed it out not once, but three times, and with each subsequent viewing, I liked it more. The film, released in 2014, is available on Amazon Prime and stars Scarlett Johansson as a foxy seductress who also just so happens to be an extraterrestrial. She combs the Scottish countryside in search of virile young hitchhiking men, to whom she offers a ride and delivers a death sentence. The film is a quiet one, peppered throughout with terrifying violin and painfully awkward getting-toknow-you banter, which helps her to establish which of her various, unfor-

tunate passengers are least likely to be missed. Those men who have no families, no girlfriends, no jobs or are transient become her targets. She seduces them each through a bizarre chiaroscuro striptease, during which the men are subsumed by an inexplicable black void where, we can only assume, they are left to die. When the alien snatches a kindly, deformed man off the street on his way to the supermarket, everything changes. She asks him probing questions about how long it’s been since he touched someone and she places his hands on her face. She then invites him to her place, where she decides last minute to release him, naked, back into the world. Suddenly, she has lost faith in her mission. She abandons her creepy kidnapping van and takes off into the

Eagle baseball is headed to the Sun Belt And you can thank the math for that one, because this season has been rough Well, one-and-done wasn’t exactly how the Eagles drew it up. Georgia Southern softball dropped the opening game of the Sun Belt Softball tournament to No. 8 seed UL-Monroe by a score of 2-1, and saw its season come Alex to an abrupt end Wednesday. The tournament is single-elimination for the first round and then moves to a double-elimination format from there. Georgia Southern gave up a two-run, two-out double in the top of the first inning, which proved to be enough for the Warhawks. The Eagles managed a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth, but could not push the tying run across after loading the bases later in the inning. Georgia Southern finishes its season with a 30-27 overall record, but lost eight of its last 11 games to close out the year. On the baseball diamond, Georgia Southern split a midweek, home and home with North Florida last week. In Wednesday’s 2-0 home win over the Ospreys, Head Coach Rodney Hennon picked up his 600th career victory at Georgia Southern, which moved his overall career record to 681-371-1 and 600-412 during his tenure in Statesboro.

Congratulations, Coach Hennon! The Eagles welcomed No. 23 Clemson to town for a three-game series over the weekend, and it did not start well for the home team. The Tigers jumped all over Eagle starter Evan Challenger Brown Friday night to the tune of nine earned runs on seven hits in five

innings of work. Clemson cruised to a 12-1 win. Saturday night’s game was much more entertaining. Clemson struck for two runs in the first, but the Eagles quickly answered by tying the game on a Ryan Cleveland two-run homer. The Tigers plated three runs in the third to take a brief 5-2 lead, but Southern responded once again with three runs in the bottom of the frame to tie the game at five. Clemson took the lead with a run in the top of the sixth and it held until the bottom of the ninth, when things got really wild. Kent Rollins led off with a ground-out to short. Cal Baker walked, but was forced out at second on a fielder’s choice by CJ Ballard. Evan McDonald singled to right, and the Eagles were in business with runners on the corners with two outs. The next batter, Logan Baldwin, struck out swinging, but the pitch got past All-American catcher Chris Okey. Baldwin beat out the throw

and Ballard scored on a not-soroutine, game-tying RBI strikeout in the bottom of the ninth. Cleveland then walked to load the bases and gave Jordan Wren a chance to be the hero. Wren came through with a single to right and the Eagles won 7-6 in dramatic, walk-off fashion. Southern could not ride the momentum through Sunday’s rubber game, however. Clemson posted four runs in the second inning and hung a six spot up in the fifth inning to take a 10-1 lead. The Eagles cut it to 10-4 in the sixth, but the Tigers tacked on plenty of insurance and cruised to a 17-4 win. Despite the loss, Georgia Southern (31-22, 14-13) did get some good news on Sunday. By virtue of UL-Monroe’s loss to Little Rock on Sunday, the Eagles have mathematically clinched a berth in the Sun Belt tournament next weekend. If the season ended today, the Eagles would be the No. 5 seed, but there are games to be played this weekend. Georgia Southern hosts Georgia State Thursday, Friday and Saturday as the regular season comes to a close. The Panthers will be fighting for their postseason lives, but they will need to sweep the Eagles and get some help from other teams in the conference, so State is a long shot to make it to San Marcos for the tournament. This weekend is the last chance to see the baseball Eagles at home this year. Next week, we’ll preview the conference tournament as final seedings are decided. Southern needs to put State out of its misery this weekend and pick up some momentum going into the tournament.w

Scottish countryside, all busty and coatless and vulnerable. Alone on a random bus, she understands as a result of the bus driver’s interrogations that no human could withstand the wet winter without outerwear, and accepts the coat of the man sitting behind her. From here, she spends a few days in silent, awkward courtship, trying her hand at romance. She is stiff as a doll on the bed, though, and becomes aggressively frustrated as the encounter progresses, reaching for a table lamp and wielding it like a flashlight at her genitals. Apparently disgusted by what she finds there, she throws the lamp to the floor, and off she goes again into the wild. When the alien is not wiping men off the face of the planet, she’s busy trying to understand what it is to be human, and this is one of the film’s most attractive features. Seen through the alien’s eyes, “human” becomes a question — and one not easily answered. She observes city dwellers that hustle and smoke on sidewalks, and watches families swimming in the ocean. She falls on a sidewalk and when kindly strangers lift her up, she stares at them blankly. She wanders through a shopping mall, overwhelmed but easily catching on to consumer culture. When she attempts to eat cake in a quiet bistro, forking it reverently, she spits it back up onto the plate almost immediately and with very little gusto. The other diners go mute, stare at her briefly, and resume their distracted mumbling. Flatware clinks against plates. Her episode was just a ripple in the pond.

9 which goes into much more detail and leaves very few questions unanswered. The film is a loose adaptation of the book, but one that, without much dialogue or explication, still does a lovely job of representing the way it must feel to be so very alone in a crowd, the only one of your kind. Under the Skin is essentially what would happen if Stanley Kubrick and Bjork had collaborated to make a movie. It is painfully slow and phonically disturbing. It’s also very dark — sometimes problematically so. It is a baffling film and in most ways, it’s too subtle, but it is really stunning, too. I won’t spoil the ending for those who are patient enough to reach it on their own, but it is one of the more visually arresting experiences I have had in the cinema. It is eerie and horrific and gorgeous. It is unsettling and unexpected. It is desperately sad, and it’s surprisingly human.w CONNECT STATESBORO

Q: How long do dental sealants last? A: A sealant is a plastic coating that is flowed into the grooves and crevices that are on the tops of the tooth. First, the tooth is cleaned thoroughly, and any debris is removed from the cracks and crevices. Then the tooth is treated with a bonding agent by flowing the plastic into the grooves. The excess can be seen on the tops of the tooth. Often the plastic is colored white to aid in monitoring the sealants at the cleaning appointments. The top part of the sealant often wears away in 3-5 years. However, the part of the plastic that is in the grooves seems to last much longer than 3-5 years.

Explore 'Forgotten History' in CVB exhibit said Dr. Tharp, director of the Georgia Southern Museum and instructor of the course. Thus, as a final project, Public History students created an exhibit brief, conducted in-depth research, wrote copy and worked with local exhibit designer Deborah Harvey to fully develop the exhibit’s design. “It’s about as hands-on as you can get during a course,” Tharp said. “We even built a mission wall, which was a lot of fun,” said Dr. Michael Van Wagenen, associate professor of history and founder of the Public History certificate program. “It has a cut-away into what missions would have looked like in Georgia, what they would be made from.” Spanish settlers arrived in Georgia a century before James Oglethorpe, the

North and Central America on folklore, religion, art and history. Dr. Van Wagenen’s favorite artifacts from The Spanish in Georgia are both from what was first New Spain, then Mexico, and is now the United States. The first is a steel-bladed dagger that probably belonged to someone of a religious order. Discovered hundreds of years later by a farmer in central California along the Camino Real, “the handle has three souls chained together, possibly burning in hell, or possibly captives,” Van Wagenen said. “Three souls in chains.” The second, found in New Mexico, is a “crude, primitive, iron-link belt worn by the Penitentes, a religious order that practices self-flagellation as a way of showing their devotion to God.” Likely from the 1770s, it is heavily spiked and would have been worn “under clothing as a reminder of [the wearer’s] devotion to God and sorrow for his own sins.” Dr. Brent Tharp’s favorite artifacts are two crosses, painted in a traditional Mexican floral style, set into the recreated mission wall. “They are my favorites in part because they are such clear signs of the Christian and European tradition blended with Native elements,” he explained. Also of particular interest to Tharp is a drum, fabricated in the traditional style of central Mexico. The drums are often carved into the form of an animal, such as a panther and leopard. “But this one is carved with the face of a lion,” he said. “There were never any lions in historic times here in Central America, so this wild and whimsical lion is likely based on images from the missions, or the Bible.” This final project for the Public History certificate program serves as “essentially a lab for students, and then a product for the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau,” Tharp said. “It’s great that the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau has included this museum element for students to have professional experiences and share their budding talents with the community as a result,” Van Wagenen said. “This is great material for their portfolios, as professionals in the field,” agreed Dr. Tharp. “It’s a really exceptional exhibit, I think.” The Museum on Main is located at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau at 222 South Main Street. There is no cost to visit the museum, which is open for all visitors Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and Fridays from 9 a.m.–4 p.m.w

For the past two years, graduate students in the Public History certificate program of Georgia Southern University’s Department of History have conceptualized, designed and implemented museum exhibits of local interest. This year’s class has produced The Spanish in Georgia: A Forgotten History, on display now at the Museum on Main at the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau. The Public History certificate program is designed for students who are interested in working with history outside of the traditional academic classroom, in settings such as museums, historic sites and archives. “While museums are all very different organizations, one thing they have in common is interpreting original artifacts, generally through exhibits,”

colony's founder, which is where most public-school knowledge of Georgia history begins. “The people who wrote the histories descended from English settlers, so those Spanish stories were forgotten,” Tharp said. He expects that as demographics continue to shift, there will be renewed interest in the Spanish history of the area. The exhibit shows visitors how the first Spanish attempt at settling in Georgia proved unsuccessful: Early settlers did not bring “the right tools and equipment, weren’t familiar with the North American environment, and didn’t particularly know how to deal with the native populations here,” said Dr. Tharp. But “while the first settlement didn’t make it, ultimately what does become important and successful is the mission up and down the sea islands of Florida and Georgia,” Tharp said. Where later English settlements were “more economically-oriented, the Spanish brought with them this mission of converting the Native Americans to Catholicism." Missions, or religious outposts, were usually established in towns already established by Native Americans, where trade became an important way of communicating and cooperating. The Spanish traded metal tools, glass beads and other items that Native Americans had never seen before for things the Spanish “desperately needed,” Tharp said, “such as corn, gourds, deer and hides to keep warm.” These trade relationships gave the Spanish the opportunity to talk about their faith and, gradually, friars began to approach conversion as a piecemeal process, understanding that they could not “whole-sale turn the Native Americans away from strong religious traditions of their own,” Tharp said. The artifacts within The Spanish in Georgia reflect this “amalgamation of belief systems” and help to demonstrate that Catholicism “wasn’t always imposed,” Tharp explained. “As the artifacts show, there was a definite cross-over: the Spanish changed Native culture, but the Native Americans also changed Spanish culture in North America.” The Public History class chose exhibit pieces from the personal collection of Monica Delgado and Dr. Michael Van Wagenen. Both grew up in California and were influenced by the aesthetic, cultural and historical import of the missions and adobe structures. They later spent years together as ethnographic filmmakers, focusing in

The pulse of Cannes, which already beats at a frenetic pace, was quickened by Arnold's throbbing and sensory American odyssey into a poor Midwestern underbelly seen through a traveling van of wayward teens trying to scam suburbanites. The exuberance of the film and Arnold's merry band of youngsters — including breakout star Sasha Lane, Shia LaBeouf and a number of nonprofessional actors picked up along the way — spilled across the festival's red carpet Sunday. At the 69th Cannes Film Festival, there are only three female directors out of 21 in competition for the Palme d'Or, but their impact has been outsized. Midway through the festival, two of the most lauded films of Cannes are the ones helmed by Arnold and German director Maren Ade, whose "Toni Erdmann" is that rarest of birds: a 162-minute-long, crowd-pleasing German comedy. That Cannes has been led by a pair of female filmmakers is not notable in

and of itself. It's no shock that Arnold, the shape-shifting director of "Fish Tank" and "Wuthering Heights," has crafted something blazing in her first U.S. film, nor is it surprising that the unexpected, humanistic turns favored by Ade ("The Forest for the Trees," ''Everyone Else") are so effective (and funny) in "Toni Erdmann." But such a midway state has been uncommon at Cannes, where female filmmakers have persistently lagged in representation. In 2012, there were no women filmmakers in competition at Cannes, prompting protests and outrage. Festival director Thierry Fremaux has pledged to do better while also calling on the industry to improve. But change has come slowly — some would say too slowly. Last year there were just two female filmmakers in competition, and 2016 improved that figure by just one. (The third is French filmmaker Nicole Garcia's "From the Land of the Moon," which made less of a splash in its premiere Sunday.) Some countries have set goals to improve gender equality in the film business. On Sunday, the Swedish Film Institute touted its program, launched in 2012, that aims to have state-supplied

film funding split between men and women filmmakers by 2020. It has already reached that goal. A similar program was unveiled Sunday by the British Film Institute and other United Kingdom film groups to balance their funding between genders in the coming years. Meanwhile back in the United States, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced last Wednesday that a year after urging the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate discrimination against female film and TV directors, it was "encouraged by the scope of the government's process." Asked at a "Women in Motion" talk in Cannes whether 50/50 quotas should be considered in Hollywood, Jodie Foster (whose fourth film as a director, the hostage thriller "Money Monster," premiered out of competition) was hesitant to go that far. "It's an experience," she said. "Let's see how it goes." While gender equality in moviemaking has been a running conversation at the festival, it's been overshadowed by the quality of the films.

After "Toni Erdmann" debuted, all anyone could talk about was what an unexpected delight it was. "Not only does German humor exist, it might just save your life," wrote the Guardian. The film is about a father-daughter divide in which a bearish, jokester dad (Peter Simonischek) tries to close the gap with comedy and pranks. He visits his 30-something daughter (Sandra Huller) at her high-powered corporate job in Bucharest. When his first efforts at warming up to her fail, he takes to posing as an alter ego ("Toni Erdmann") in increasingly outrageous encounters. As the comedy gets more extreme, the film manages to get emotionally deeper, too. "American Honey" is much wilder. Arnold, first intrigued by a New York Times story about such traveling bands of teenagers, prepared for the film with her own road trip across the U.S. "I find real life and real people inspiring," Arnold told reporters, adding that she avoids referencing other films or filmmakers. "I try to find my own way. I try to find my own voice."w

Holli Deal Saxon IT’S NOT THE SUGAR, SUGAR — A woman who ran into a ditch on Zettwell Road claimed to be diabetic and having a sugar issue. However, she was found have a blood alcohol level of .224, but normal blood sugars. She was found with an open beer and came to law enforcement's attention after someone reported her as a reckless driver. After she ran into a ditch, someone called a wrecker and then followed her as she continued to drive erratically after being extricated from the ditch. More empty beer cans were

found in the car, and she told deputies she just wanted to go to sleep. She was charged with DUI and other charges. REPEAT OFFENDER — A deputy stopping a vehicle on Hwy. 67 saw it “rocking from side to side” during a traffic stop and found the driver to be switching sides with a passenger. The driver had 14 license suspensions — seven for failure to appear in court, four for driving on a suspended license, two mandatory suspensions and one for no insurance. He was taken to jail with yet

another suspended license charge, as well as a window tint citation. JAIL OR SCHOOL? — A Burkhalter Mobile Home Park woman called deputies when her juvenile daughter yelled and threatened to punch her in the face because she didn’t want to go to school. The juvenile told deputies she was not a morning person and her mother was yelling at her to get up. When the deputy told her she had a choice between going to school or going to jail, she chose school. UNSUPERVISED — A deputy saw a four-year-old child riding his bike

near dark in the middle of Old Leefield Road. Another child, 12, arrived on a dirt bike looking for the younger one, who had shoes on the wrong feet. The children’s father was located and said the children were not supposed to be out of the yard and said this had never happened before, but deputies reminded them they had been at the home several times regarding the fouryear-old being missing. The father became angry and asked what deputies suggested he do with a child that likes to run, and deputies told him to watch his children better. Deputies also told the man social workers would be notified of the incident.w


Metaphor(s) for grief

13 ‘Grief is the water, or shock, or my body, or the weeds below me. More honestly, though, grief is none of these. Metaphors are imprecise, none quite right. ... Grief is a wordless place, and I keep trying to write my way through it anyway. It is inexplicable, and yet here I am, trying to explain.’ Katherine Fallon, Connect columnist

Two years ago, we gathered in Atlanta to bury my grandmother. A little over a year ago, Heather stepped in front of a train. And one year ago this week, my father took five breaths a minute, then four, then none. The coroner folded a brilliant white sheet over his face like a fan, and he was gone. Then, we began the work of grieving. Grief is a wordless place, and I keep trying to write my way through it anyway. It is inexplicable, and yet here I am, trying to explain.w

One I in it, he was diminished, nearly green in watched and smelled and lifted and fed the flesh, out of his mind and past the by hand, by straw. One I held after the cold set in. Over the past year, I have considered a lot of extended metaphors for grief. Depending on the day, it might be a veil, a lens, an escape room, or a Jell-O mold rife with floating canned fruit. Sometimes it is a stuck elevator, a wet coat, a cement shoe. It’s a miserable summer road trip with no air conditioning, and I always have to pee. Grief is a hunter in shadow, or is a shadow itself. Most commonly, though, I go back to Lake Marion. As a girl, I went to summer camp, where we practiced archery and fired rifles and climbed fake rock walls. We had co-ed dances and talent shows for which we prepared by gathering around communal bathroom mirrors with cans of Aquanet and wands of Bonne Belle. Nothing was better, though, than swim time, when we peeled off our ratty camp shorts and charged into the murky, opaque waters of Lake Marion in order to escape the midday heat. The first few feet of earth beneath us were gritty sand, like any beach, but after wading in up to our shoulders, the lake floor dropped suddenly into

want of food or water. He had hours to live, then minutes. And just as it transpired last May, my sister put her hand on my foot to wake me from sleep in the early blue morning hours, and said, “It’s time.” In the dream, as in life, the worst wasn’t his death but its aftermath. No one warned me that giving it voice would cause me to relive it, over and over again: My father died; Jeffrey passed away this morning; My father/ your friend is dead. Naturally, the frequency of these mourning episodes has begun to diminish, and I expect that trend to continue. There are long stretches of time where my grief does not occur to me, but each time I say that my father, my grandmother, my dear Heather, is gone, I realize it anew, myself. Suddenly I’m a child again, floating in water so thick with silt I can’t see the bottom. I am shy about my bathing suit and am covered in freckles. Here, it never rains, and the water is like tepid soup. I hover one step past the steep drop of the lake floor, in the liminal space between what I can and cannot comprehend, and at the moment I believe myself buoyant, I sink into unseen weeds. Grief is the water, or shock, or my body, or the weeds below me. More honestly, though, grief is none of these. Metaphors are imprecise, none quite right.

That's what I loved most about Elsa, and what I still love about her. She hasn't had a whole lot of practice with relationships by the time Frozen ends, but — while, again, falling in love is a fantastic experience — she is still whole and happy without any romantic entanglements. If any Disney character could live her life happy and fulfilled without a love interest, Elsa would be it. And I'd love to see a female character whose arc is never, not even once, defined by romance.

To be honest, I don't think I'll care what Disney decides to do with Elsa's narrative when Frozen 2 blows into theaters. And if Disney concludes that the time is right to work in a same-sex relationship, then I wish Elsa and her girlfriend every happiness. But I hope that a few movies in which the development of close, intimate and completely platonic friendships follow close on its heels, and that we can see some protagonists ride off into their sunsets without needing anyone else in the saddle.
