As a warm summer day began to fade behind the Rocky Mountains, casting shadows upon the Roaring Fork River pulsating downstream in Aspen, Colo., a beautiful young woman in a flowing white gown stood on the edge of land as the water moved southward. Lauren Alanna Lyon reached out her hand for the tall, handsome Jack Krawczyk , who was dressed in black tie and standing in the natural splendor of the Coldstream Trout Lodge. Jack took Lauren's hand and pulled her close to him, their lips meeting.

"Songs for Amy," the debut feature film from Irish director Konrad Begg that premiered this week at the Newport Beach Film Festival, opens with a quotation. "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. " Begg treats Aldous Huxley's epigram more as hypothesis than comment. His movie is as much about that silence as it is about the music. His protagonist, Sean O'Malley (played by Sean Maguire), is an inarticulate singer-songwriter. Sean falls in love with a girl called Amy (Lorna Anderson)

It's not surprising that "La Traviata" was the most performed opera during the 2012-13 operatic season. Not "Don Giovanni. " Not "Carmen. " Not "La Boheme. " Not even "Madame Butterfly. " But "La Traviata. " Audiences in Southern California were able to understand its enduring relevance recently when the titular opera — which was written by composer Giuseppe Verdi and debuted in 1852 — had a three-day limited engagement with the Pacific Symphony at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County under the direction of maestro Carl St. Clair.

Louis W. Nockold I viewed the movie, "Pearl Harbor," with a critical eye to see how well the script followed the events of the morning of Dec. 7, 1941. I liked the prologue to the real story, which showed the relationship between the two principal male characters and built the background for the love story angle that was interwoven into the primary thrust of the movie. I felt the love story was somewhat overplayed and the actions of the Navy nurses were not particularly indicative of the way Navy nurses would have acted in the circumstances, but I felt this did not detract from the enjoyable aspects of the overall movie.

Director Miguel Arteta knows about semi-dark comedy with a cutting edge. He directed episodes of HBO’s offbeat series “Six Feet Under.” He also took charge of the sharp Jennifer Aniston effort “The Good Girl.” With “Youth in Revolt,” based on the book by C.D. Payne, he takes on the familiar subject of a virgin teen (played by Michael Cera) who is desperately trying to come of age with his babe of choice. Cera had some good training for this role in novel films about teenage angst like “Juno” and “Superbad.

On one of his routine pickups, Su picks up a shady character who jams a pistol in his face. His life "flashes before his eyes" -- the affair with the officer (Hsiu-Ying Cheng)

Valentine's Day didn't end Friday on Balboa Island. On Saturday, about a dozen love letters were taped to the windows of a small cottage tucked just across the island's bridge on Marine Avenue in Newport Beach. The building houses the Balboa Island Museum and Historical Society, and through the weekend, docents are collecting stories like the one that belongs to Summer and Dennis Brees. According to their letter, the two met 28 years ago on the island when Summer's car broke down on the ferry and was pushed onto Agate Avenue.

After 10 months of writing and researching five hours a day, spilling umpteen thousand words and creating 66 chapters, I'm pages away from completing my book. I'm hoping to finish today. However, I must complete this column, teach at the Leadership Institute in San Francisco and bring back in one piece each of the students who accompanied me. It's funny how you'd write a sentence with a particular focus and then serendipitously turn a corner only to find that leads to another turn and yet another after that.

The chupacabra is just a legendary monster, but what if it weren't? That's what author Michael Hebler, owner of Newport Beach-based Night After Night Publications, asks readers in his new 300-page novel, "Night of the Chupacabra," the first in a five-part series. "It's such fascinating folklore, and it's only growing by leaps every day," Hebler said of the creature, whose name translates to "goat sucker" and was originally reported in the 1990s in Puerto Rico. The fictional Western-thriller, set in a post-Civil War backdrop, follows a father hunting the legendary beast to right the wrongs committed against his family, Hebler said.

Browsing cookbooks is a fun and useful way to find new recipes and ideas. But in addition to learning new ways to cook, cookbooks also are being published as combination memoirs and blogs. The Newport Beach Public Library has found them to be a popular source of nonfiction reading, especially for those who love to cook (and eat!). Ree Drummond published her cookbook, "The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story " after her Pioneer Woman food blog became extremely popular.
