At the Movies

Cloud Atlas complex, but fantastic storytelling

Special to The Wilson Post

Sitting in a very empty theater, I realized that Cloud Atlas is a film thats less about conveying a singular idea or story, but rather more about the way in which the stories of six events spanning across thousands of years are relatable to one another through the human spirit.

It would be nearly impossible to convey what Atlas is about because it tells six different stories, from time periods ranging from 1850 to 2344 and everything in between. Based on the 2004 novel of the same name by David Mitchell, Atlas really is a wonderful experience, but most likely wont make very much money as its form isnt massively appealing.

Written and Directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer, the film opens with just enough from all six stories to get hooked on each of them. It bounces from one to the other, but not in an incoherent way.

They are all stories of love, freedom, finding the truth, overcoming societys boundaries and how the actions of one individual can affect countless lives. I couldnt possibly name every member of the amazing cast, nor the characters they play.

Since the stories jump from one time period to another, every actor portrays multiple characters and sometimes those characters are of different age, race or sex than the last. Atlas really is an unbelievable feat of acting and directorial skill, as well as writing.

MJPD urges parents to keep their little ghosts, goblins safe this Halloween

Halloween can be a wicked good time for the whole family in Mt. Juliet as residents and children swamp the neighborhoods in creative costumes racing to see who can get the most candy. However, safety must be a top priority for parents and children.

Amongst the spooky fun, it is important to make sure everyone stays safe and accounted for as they lurk to trick-or-treating. Mt. Juliet Police Department is significantly increasing patrol officers and their presence in neighborhoods during the witching hours, but they need the help of residents so Mt. Juliets streets can be as safe as possible. Any unsafe mischief or driving behavior should immediately be reported to the police department so it can be stopped.

Terry Ashe honored by friends

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe surprised those around him when, in September, he announced his resignation from the position after more than 30 years of service.

Friends gathered this time to surprise him. A crowd honored the local hero on Monday evening at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center on what will forever be known as Terry Ashe Day. Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead and Watertown Mayor Mike Jennings presented Ashe with the proclamation on behalf of themselves, Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto and Mt. Juliet Mayor Ed Hagerty.
