Posted: Monday, October 16, 2017

ATTLEBORO — It was a different city and a different world in 1956 when Attleboro Garden Club was founded.

Busan Film Review: ‘Glass Garden’ – Variety

Posted: Sunday, October 15, 2017

We’ve all been told that the Lorax speaks for the trees, but Dr. Seuss’s mustachioed conservationist has nothing on the fragile, dendrology-fixated protagonist of “Glass Garden.” A pretty, peculiar fable that slowly takes the term “green-fingered” to alarming extremes, South Korean writer-director Shin Su-won’s fourth feature centers on Jae-yeon (Moon Geon-young), a brilliant but unworldly Ph.D student whose innovative research into human photosynthesis leads her on a deranged quest to…
