After the revelation of The Dark Knight, here is The Watchmen, another bold exercise in the liberation of the superhero movie. It's a compelling, visceral film - sound, images and characters combine into a decidedly odd visual experience that evokes the feel of a graphic novel. Rated R.

Deserts, camels, sand, oil, oppressed women, terrorists - from the charming to the not-so-charming stereotypes - this is what many Americans envision when asked about Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. When Kate Seichter recently traveled to Saudi Arabia, she learned first-hand that in this case, stereotypes just don't fit.
We invite you to join local resident and Sheehan High School social studies teacher Kate Seichter for an informative program on Saudi Arabia and her recent experiences in the Educators to Saudi Arabia program. Please register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.
