2012 London Olympics:
Siblings Honor Gold Medalist Uncle
For Beyond 50's "Travel & History" talks, listen to an interview with Derek Ewell from Portland.  He'll talk about his travels to the 2012 London Olympics with his sister to honor their gold and silver-medical winning Uncle, Barney Ewell, who medaled in the 1948 London Olympics. You'll learn about the invitation-only reception to celebrate the 1948 Olympians.  Their late Uncle was a local legend (in Lancaster, PA) and USA Track and Field Hall of Famer. He grew up in poverty and overcame polio to become one of the world's leading sprinters in the 1940s. Barney Ewell's Olympic dreams were put on hold by World War II when the games were pre-empted in 1940 and 1944.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green
A modern fairy tale story, it accurately highlights the challenges of adoption and integrating a child into a family and community.  Cindy and Jim Green have made attempts at having a child through fertility treatments.  They channel their dreams of a child into
written notes of what they'd like their son to be like and bury them in the garden.  One stormy night, 10-year-old Timothy shows up on their doorstop.  He seems to have grown out of the grass.  (Available in Theatres Everywhere; Genre: Science Fiction & Fantasy, Comedy; Running Time: 2 hrs., 5 min.)

The Queen of Versailles
This is a fascinating and tragic story of how the superrich have been impacted by the housing crisis and recession.  Filming began when billionaire David Siegel and his trophy
wife, Jackie, begin construction of the biggest house in America, a 90,000 sq. ft. palace modeled after Versailles to house their family with seven biological children.  Two years into the project, the nation's economy collapses and construction comes to a halt.  David, the "time-share king" must lay off thousands of employees, along with other cuts in response. (Available in Select Theatres; Genre: Documentary, Special Interest; Running Time: 1 hr., 40 min.)

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry
Powerful and enthralling, this documentary features Ai Weiwei, an icon both in China and internationally for his use of art as activism against the injustices of the Chinese government.  The designer behind the "Bird's Nest" stadium of the Beijing Olympics, he also boycotted the event after what he saw as his government's dictatorial policies.   His defiant artwork has led to his arrest in April of 2011 and was detained for several months and handed a tax bill for $2.4 million.  One of his bold stunts was compiling and blogging the list of more than 5,000 children who died in the flimsily constructed government schools in Sichuan, which was made more obvious after a major earthquake.  (Available in Select Theatres; Genre: Documentary, Special Interest; Running Time: 1 hr., 31 min.)

The Well Digger's Daughter
Beautifully nostalgic, it's an old fashioned story that's a remake of a 1940 film set in rural Provence of France during World War I.  A beautiful peasant girl, named Patricia, is the daughter of a widowed well-digger who becomes pregnant out of wedlock to the son of a wealthy grocer - a dashing young pilot who loves her.  Out of honor, the father is compelled to toss his daughter out for her sinful behavior, even though he adores her.  (Available in Select Theatres; Genre: Drama, Romance; Running Time: 1 hr., 45 min.)
