Published by
Reuters

By David Morgan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Hoping to retake both houses of Congress in elections a year from now, Republicans plan to follow a strategy Glenn Youngkin used to win Virginia’s governor’s race, making schools the front line in U.S. culture wars, several lawmakers said on Wednesday.

‘Finch’ review: Tom Hanks battles the elements alone. Didn’t he do this in ‘Cast Away’? Yes, but this time it’s the apocalypse!

Published by
Chicago Tribune

A surprisingly upbeat apocalyptic tale, “Finch” stars Tom Hanks in the title role as a man who, sensing his days are numbered, builds an android to look after his dog. Judging by the barren landscape empty of life (human or otherwise) and his own wheezing and coughing, Finch’s last breath probably isn’t too far off. But until then, it’s Tom Hanks versus the elements — including his own frazzled psyche — and if that sounds familiar, like a dystopian version of “Cast Away,” well, the film itself doesn’t offer many counterpoints in this solo survival story of a man who manages to retain a modicum… Read More “‘Finch’ review: Tom Hanks battles the elements alone.
