The Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle would like to extend a thank you to a Chicago film critic we consider a professional peer and colleague.  Enjoy the work of CFCA member David J. Fowlie of Keeping it Reel, his review, and his advance coverage highlighting our first annual CIFCC Showcase.  Much appreciated, sir!  Here’s an excerpt:

Is it easier for younger children to handle their parents divorcing or is it better for parents to stick together “for the kids” as long as possible? Remember being told or hearing “suck it up” or “don’t be a crybaby”, either from your parents or other adults, when you were growing up? Were you smacked around constantly as a form of punishment or told to “shut up!” when you were a child? Chances are you survived by building a resilience to the childhood trauma you experienced, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re came through those experiences unscathed. James Redford’s revealing and important documentary, “Resilience”, looks a couple very different types of resilience, one that humans naturally develop as a way to cope with trauma or grief and another kind that must be taught, in order to develop an overall health body, mind and soul.
