Arkansas’s first environmental education state park interprets the importance of the natural world and our place within it.
ARGENTA FILM SERIES: 'CHRYSTAL'
7 p.m. Argenta Community Theater. Free.
The story concerns a convict who returns to his small hometown after a long stretch in prison, seeking atonement for his past misdeeds. I don't want to give away too much, so I'll just say that it's a beautifully shot film that is strange and strangely affecting. All three stars turn in fine, nuanced performances, particularly Blount, who passed away nearly two years ago.
Her character, despite bleak surroundings and raw deals from life, emanates a damaged backwoods grace. Walton Goggins and Harry Dean Stanton are also enjoyable. The film has also got great music, and it was shot right here in Arkansas, specifically, up in my neck of the woods, outside of Berryville, a.k.a. Burvul.
Congratulations to an Arkansas Treasure. Good on you Ed. Dale Ch--who?
