For the third installment of Foreign Film Friday I’ve picked a family movie, The Secret of Roan Inish. This is a wonderful Irish story of a young girl who discovers the history of her family, and takes them back to their ancestral island in order to save them. Watching Fiona learn about her family, and their stories, and trying to decide what is real and what is just a fairy tale is delightful. In the end it’s all about family and love and staying true to who you really are.
Alica McKenna Johnson writes about snarky girls, kind boys, and the adults trying to keep them alive. After day dreaming for the first thirty years of life, Alica finally began writing her stories down, much to the delight of her readers. As Alica sits in her armchair at home dreaming of traveling the world, her diverse characters explore for her listening to music, seeing the sights, and eating exotic foods.
