  Seduction in small town QuebecPDF files may take a moment to load

I'm going to tell you straight up that I'm torn over this review. Part of me wants to rip Seducing Dr. Lewis to shreds because it's godawfully boring, derivative and just plain unfunny. The other part of me, the angel on my shoulder if you will, is telling me to optimistically support independent Canadian cinema.

Vive Canadiana?

Set in Afghanistan during the Taliban's rise to power, Osama follows the unhappy circumstances surrounding a young girl's attempt to disguise herself as a boy in a society built on male supremacy. Because of strict laws against women working or even venturing into the streets alone, there is little hope for survival without a male provider.

"The change was initially put in place last summer," explained Residence Director Jim Dunsdon, who is new to the University of Calgary this year. "From what I understand, there has been a problem with students partying [in residence]. It was quite a problem for those who [were] studying."

Students could see their fees go directly to the services they are using such as the Registrar or Career Services.

  Holocaust survivor shares storiesPDF files may take a moment to load

Between 1939 and 1945, millions of people--the majority Jewish--were systematically tortured and murdered. Miles of recorded film and enough archived documents to fill libraries carry the heavy, irrefutable evidence of one of humanity's greatest atrocities.

Still, there are some who insist the Holocaust never happened.
