  • Cumming Brothers to sing June 24

  • Perhaps some view movies that are not documentaries as interesting, but far from true. I do not. I see them as I see any art form, purveyors of truth clothed in fiction. I believe they hold verities that would make us cringe if they were presented as nonfiction. This is the case with the film, “A Better Life.”
