Nice concept, shaky execution–that about sums up the mixed blessings of British actor Peter Howitt’s intelligent but forgivably flawed debut as a writer-director. It’s got more emotional depth than most frothy romantic comedies, and its central idea–the parallel tracking of two possible destinies for a young London professional played by Gwyneth Paltrow–is full of involving possibilities. It’s essentially a what-if scenario with Helen (Paltrow) at the center of two slightly but significantly different romantic trajectories, one involving her two-timing boyfriend (John Lynch) and the other with an amiable chap (John Hannah) who represents a happier outcome. That’s the film’s basic problem, however: The two scenarios are so romantically imbalanced (one guy’s a total cad, the other charmingly sincere) that Helen inadvertently comes off looking foolish and needlessly confused. Still, this remains a pleasant experiment, and Howitt’s dialogue is witty enough to keep things entertaining. It’s also a treat for Paltrow fans; not only does the svelte actress handle a British accent without embarrassing herself, but she gets to play two subtle variations of the same character, sporting different wardrobes and hairstyles in a role that plays into her glamorous off-screen persona. –Jeff Shannon

The Free Church of Saint Mary-The-Virgin

The Free Church of Saint Mary-The-Virgin
Midtown Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States

The Free Church of Saint Mary-the-Virgin complex, including the church, Clergy House, Mission House, Rectory and Lady Chapel, was designed by Pierre L. LeBrun of Napoleon LeBrun & Sons in 1894. The church, long a center of Anglo-Catholic worship, is a physical realization of the tenets of the Oxford Movement which sought to better the lives of the urban poor through nursing care, inspirational activity and the ritual of the Pre-Reformation Church in England. Built in 1895 to make full use of an irregular site, St. Mary’s was designed both to realize the programmatic goals of its trustees and to evoke, in the church and Lady Chapel, the 13th- century French Gothic Style. The Clergy and Mission Houses, and the Rectory were cast in the 14th-century French Gothic style.

The result is one of the finest Gothic-inspired designs of New York’s late 19th century. The steel frame construction of the church can be said to have made the building the first of its kind and size in the world, thus redefining the conventional methods of church construction. Among the building’s several specific Anglo-Catholic characteristics are the subjects selected for the sculptures of J. Massey Rhind whose academic naturalism complements

LeBrun’s architecture.

The Society of the Free Church of Saint Mary-the-Virgin

The Society of the Free Church of Saint Mary-the-Virgin has its origins in the growth of Anglo-Catholicism within the Church of England and the Protestant Episcopal Church of North America. In the third decade of the 19th century, a group of theologians – dons of Oxford’s College House of Saint Mary-the-Virgin (Oriel College) – initiated a religious movement to enhance the lives of the disaffected of the Industrial Revolution.

Reasserting an identity with the Pre-Re format ion Church of England, the founders of the Oxford Movement emphasized the importance of the sacraments, stressing the ideal of the priesthood and the authority of bishops but still rejecting the autocracy of the Pope.

This Anglo-Catholicism was characterized by a reintroduction of ritual and its accompanying furnishings, a dedication to mission work, a revival of religious orders, and a development of church architecture and art. Conceived in academe, Anglo-Catholicism, garbed in the mystery, color and richness of ceremonial worship, also manifested itself in the construction of new church buildings in slum neighborhoods.

This reassertion of ancient ritual found a sympathetic audience within the Camden Society (1839), subsequently the Ecclesiological Society, which, through its publications, The Ecclesioloqist and a variety of architectural tracts, advocated the restoration of ancient churches and the building of new ones strictly according to the principles which they believed guided the medieval English builders.

In the 1860s the Ecclesiologists also had begun to accept certain French architectural elements — apses, in place of the traditional English flat ended chancels, for example.

By the 1860s Anglo-Catholicism had found a sympathetic audience among adherents of the American Episcopal Church. St. Mary’s early history is inseparable from the life of the founder of the parish, the Reverend Thomas McKee Brown (1841-1898). Born in Philadelphia, the son of James Brown, he attended the Episcopal Academy (Philadelphia) for seven years and then matriculated at Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, with the class of 1863.

The Civil War interrupted his academic career and he went to work. But soon after he resumed his studies – by arrangement with Trinity College – at the General Theological Seminary in New York. He received his Bachelor’s degree from Trinity in 1864 and his Masters from the General Theological Seminary the following year. Before his ordination by Horatio Potter, Bishop of New York, on February 25, 1866, he served as curate at the Church of the Annunciation (then on 14th Street, Manhattan) and at St. John’s, in Brooklyn.

Following his ordination he was Rector of Trinity Church, East New York, for a year before returning to Manhattan to became curate for the Reverend Ferdinand C. Ewer of Christ Church, New York.6 At both the Church of the Annunciation and Christ Church the exalted ritual characteristic of Anglo-Catholicism was practiced.

Concurrently, Brown and a group of interested lay people combined to establish a new parish on a thoroughly Anglo-Catholic foundation. Although at this time such ritual was contrary to canon law, Bishop Potter not only suggested how the group might incorporate, he pointed out t±ie working class neighborhood where their church would be most effective.

The Society of the Free Church of Saint Mary-the-Virgin was incorporated on December 5, 1868, under a provision of a New York State law. John Jacob Astor III, learning of the group’s objective, gave the Society three lots on West 45th

Street (the site of the present Booth Theater).8

Leaving and adjusting.

Though there wasn’t much of a crowd, cabs lined up on the street in front of the station. Drivers in old trousers, weathered polo shirts and sandals, stood with their arms crossed while leaning against their passenger doors. There was a thick humidity that made the air feel stale. Maybe it was the ocean mist. We were just off the coast. Like all coastal towns in Asia, the air settled on your skin and stayed on you for the rest of the day.

She found a payphone and called the hostel while I stood next to our luggage. We had called earlier that morning but they told us to check back with them in the afternoon. The room might be available by then, they said.

This would become our pattern. I’d stand by and watch our luggage while she went off in search of payphones and reservations. Not just for this city but every city. If we could not find one, we’d spend the night in a 24 hour McDonald’s if we had to. Our phones were useless without local sim cards. We were effectively cut off from the rest of the world, back-packing without the wilderness, station by station, city by city.

“Did you get it?”
“Yeah. They said it’s quite close to here. It’s the same we saw online.”
“Good. Let’s go then.”

“This city is not a city at all,” I said. Just hundreds of meters away from the station, we had passed some kind of threshold. The streets were completely empty. Stores were open on the inside but the fronts were closed. It was eerie but peaceful. I told her I liked this place. In the quiet, memories of Hong Kong were much further away.

I kept my eye out for cafes or places that we could go to in case we needed to get online. Two long academic journals needed to be edited and published by the end of tomorrow I reminded myself.

After a row of narrow side streets, the driver dropped us off in front of what looked to be a two story house. With its sliding wooden front door and adjacent shoe-case, with slippers for guests, I thought of Japan.

Before Taiwan, we made a list of places we wanted to go to – Stockholm, Seoul, Reykjavik and Sendai. “Why Sendai? Why not Tokyo or Kyoto?”
“Because it’s quiet and green. It’s better for wandering.”

The innkeeper came out onto the porch to greet us when he was the cab pull up. He wore thick round circular glasses and a flannel shirt and had a gentle soft spoken voice. “Are you Xiao Jun?” he said. He took our luggage and stacked them on a chair and table just on the other side of the door. We stepped into the sleepers he gave us. A pink one for her. A blue one for me.

It was homely inside. A square TV sat on top of a stool behind the counter and was showing local Taiwanese drama. A simple dining table with chairs rested against the opposite wall, next to a water boiler and a tea kettle. Everything smelled herbal and wooden in nostalgia.

The inn-keeper paged through a three ringed binder and looked for our names. He marked it with a pencil. “Sorry. We’ll have your room ready soon. It’s being tidied right now,” he said.
I took a mint and popped it into my mouth and listened. It was all I could do as I tried to pick up bits and pieces of their conversation.
“It’s okay. We can just drop our luggage in the room first,” she said.
The innkeeper turned his head slightly and smiled with some embarrassment. “You don’t have to trouble yourselves. Just leave them there and I’ll take them up for you when everything’s prepared.”

“You said you were coming from Taipei early this morning.” He went to the other side of the counter and brought back a map of the city. “Do you have any plans?”
“We don’t. We’re just traveling down the coast.”
“That’s wonderful. Well, there are a couple of things you can see in this city.”

I was lost in the conversation. He pointed to different places on the map and circled them with a blue ball point pen. He spoke in length about each place that he marked. Occasionally, she’d turn towards me and translate. I knew it was a silly feeling, but I was slightly irritated.

I watched the drama on TV: a couple dressed in crisp blue and white school uniforms arguing on screen. I nodded once in a while.

“The two of you have to be tired then? Have you eaten? If you haven’t, maybe it would be a good idea for you to get something while you’re waiting for the room.”
“Do you know anywhere we can go?”
“Well, it depends on what you want.” He pointed out places for us. “You can get xiao long bao here. This place is famous for them. If you want something else, you can also go here for barbecue and rice. But I think they’re closed now. I can call a cab for you.”
I tapped her shoulder, “We can just go for a walk and find something on our own.”
She looked at me with bemusement.
“Are you sure? It’s no problem at all,” he said.
“Thanks, we’ll just see what’s out there. We’ll be back when the room’s done,” she said to him.
I took the map, folded it into fours and put it into back-pocket of my jeans.

We walked down the same path that the cab too
