Set in Singapore during the 1997 Asian financial crisis, Ilo Ilo chronicles the day-to-day life of the Lim family – troublesome grade-schooler Jiale and his overstressed parents. Comfortably middle-class and with a baby on the way, they hire Teresa, a Filipino immigrant as a live-in maid and nanny. An outsider in Singapore, Teresa struggles to manage the boy’s antics and find her footing within the family. The two eventually form a unique bond but unforeseen circumstances will challenge the new normal yet again.

Indie World Film at Owatonna Library: Gloria

Owatonna World Film

Gloria (Paulina Garcia) is a Santiago divorcee, a “woman of a certain age”, looking for love in the city's swank nightspots but finding only disappointment and one night stands. She's old enough to have a grandson but she still feels young inside and refuses to give up on life or the idea that someone might share it with her. To her great satisfaction she finds Rodolfo (Sergio Hernandez), who's middle-aged and divorced like herself, but their good times are hampered by his family baggage and peevish, unpredictable behavior.


Indie World Film at Owatonna Library: Still Mine

Still Mine

Former Oscar nominees James Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold star in Still Mine, a tender love story based on actual events that proves love is the ultimate triumph. "We're still here, we have each other and isn't everything else a bonus?" Craig and his wife Irene are in their 80's and beginning to feel it. Craig is being hit with new regulations on his farm and is unable to adapt as fast as he needs to. Irene is beginning to show signs of dementia and, rather than admit they need to enter a home, Craig decides to build a smaller, more manageable house on their land.


Mankato Hip Hop Artist Joey Bones Teams up with Bobby Faerber for New "Fingertips of God" Music Video

Mankato Hip Hop artist and known freestyler Joey Bones has teamed up with Bobby Faerber on the official music video for "Fingertips of God", a single by Bones.

Bones and Faerber shot the video in Mankato and scenes from the shoot are surreal and flow well with the overall vibe of the video. Hip hop's roots are in the streets, which was portrayed well in the video, with scenes of local people from local neighborhoods around Mankato and North Mankato.

Guardians of the Galaxy Review

Guardians of the Galaxy

We said they were crazy. We said that it could never happen. Yet here we are two years later and a movie based on the "Guardians of the Galaxy", Marvel's cosmic D-list heroes, exists. So how did Marvel, at the height of their success, take one daring step further and deliver a movie where a talking raccoon and tree seem right at home?

Simple: milk the Marvel formula for all it's worth and make the film as fluffy as possible. Some audiences clearly dig that; this is a case from the other side that sees all the so-called "fun" as misplaced priority if done wrong.
