Heistbox (popularly known as Dropbox) has now permanently altered the accounts of its original users. (See my post, “Dropbox and the Snake Oil Sales Model of Tech Firms,” June 12, 2015). I think I have removed or updated all of my original Heistbox links; please write or tweet if you click somewhere and cannot get to the review or feature you would like to read. Thank you.

"The Little Prince" now a Girl's Quest Film

Mark Osborne's The Little Prince had its premier yesterday in theaters and on Netflix.
If Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry’s children's book, "The Little Prince," never appealed to you as a girl, perhaps it was because you felt a man's nostalgia for his boyhood, rather than a world seen through a child's eyes. And, you would be right. Actually, "The Little Prince" was for the French author (and real-life pilot) a mid-life return to his boyhood wisdom. It is the story of a boy and a man, but now it is a girl's quest movie. You can read my review of of the film here: http://www.filmjournal.com/reviews/film-review-little-prince.
