“Snow Cake” (2006)

Snow Cake is a 2006 British/Canadian indie romantic comedy drama film directed by Marc Evans. Angela Pell, the screenwriter, wrote the role of Alex Hughes with Rickman in mind. It was also Rickman who read the script and made sure Weaver was contacted about the role of Linda. A drama focused on the friendship between a high-functioning autistic woman and a man who is traumatized after a fatal car accident.

Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver were brilliant in this movie. This movie was sad, happy, and romantic. It had everything!!!

Prickman’s Creek

Alan Prickman desperately needed to pass his physics course if he wanted to graduate from high school. He was stellar in English and History, so-so in maths and chemistry, but on the last test he took for physics, he only got 17 out of 100 questions correct.

“Damnation!” He bit his lip and adjusted his glasses. He had chocolate brown, ducktail styled hair, a long nose, hazel eyes and wore very nice, very clean clothes. He was known for being the nice kid, a little bit of a goof off, but overall smart and willing to help anyone. However, nobody could survive having to retake senior year unless you were a rugby player, so Prickman’s very life depended on getting a good grade. He had one last chance to redeem himself.

“Alright, class. I have assigned your partners for your final physics project.” Mr. Gruber announced to the dunderheads he had to teach. “Remember, this project is worth about 40 per cent of your grade, so don’t be an idiot and screw it up, mkay?”

Prickman twiddled his thumbs. Hopefully he would get Blalock as a partner, or maybe even Eli Michaelson over there. Prickman hated Eli, he was kind of a sexist piece of shit who thought he was on top of the world, but that boy knew his goddamn physics.

“Lily Evans, you are assigned to Linda Freeman.” Lily nodded, Linda only seemed interested in stacking her books evenly and in alphabetical order.

“Phil Allen, you will go with John Gissing.” Gissing seemed to grunt and sigh in response, but that man didn’t like working with anyone.

“Alex Hughes, you’ll work with Stephen Spurrier.” Hughes rolled his eyes. “Why do I have to work with the drunk kid?” He bemoaned.

Prickman was starting to get nervous. Who was he supposed to partner up with? He was running out of classmates.

“Eli Michaelson? You’ll be working with Hilly Kristal.”

“WHAT?!” Prickman thought, completely outraged. Kristal was so obviously eating pot brownies in the back and listening to idiotic rock and roll music, he wasn’t going to pass unless he fucked the goddamn teacher! Why couldn’t Mr. Gruber give Michaleson to someone who deserved to pass senior year?!

However, who did that leave Prickman with?

“Alan Prickman, you’ll work with Keira Black.”

Prickman bit his lip and shook. He nervously turned to Keira, who was sitting in the back with Kristal. She was smoking a cigarette as she turned to Prickman. She took the cigarette out her mouth, and put it out by pressing it into the palm of her hand. She didn’t even flinch. She tossed the cigarette aside and folded her arms, glaring at Prickman as though he were Hitler incarnate.

Maybe retaking senior year wasn’t that bad of a plan at all…

Ringgold began quilted artworks in 1980; her first quilt being “Echoes of Harlem."She quilted her stories in order to be heard, since at the time no one would publish her autobiography."Who’s Afraid of Aunt Jemima?” (1983) is a quilt showing the story of Aunt Jemima as a matriarch restaurateur.Ringgold modeled her “story quilts” on the Buddhist Thangkas, lovely pictures painted on fabric and quilted or brocaded, which could then be easily rolled up and transported. She has influenced numerous modern artists, including Linda Freeman, and known some of the greatest African-American artists personally, including Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, and Betye Saar.
