Hitting Stands Now: The Clooney/Michael Shannon Holiday Indie Preview

Hitting Stands Now: The Clooney/Michael Shannon Holiday Indie Preview

Pick up the new issue of Ace, on stands now with the George Clooney, Michael Shannon coverstory. Between them, these two Lexington-born actors steal the holiday indie movie scene with Descendants, and Take Shelter. (Ace film critic Raj Ranade saw both when he covered the Toronto Film Festival earlier this Fall.)

On page 4, we revisit our 1998 Shelby Lee Adams coverstory, on the occasion of his new book’s Sunday New York Times feature. Here’s a look back.

The centerspread includes a sampling of photos from The Ace Eleven Project. On 11.11.11, we invited Ace readers to capture a moment in the life of Lexington, Kentucky — two actually — at 11 am and 11 pm (many readers were awarded extra points for 11:11 on 11.11.11).

In the back of the book, you’ll find Abby Laub’s overview of Lexington area cooking classes this holiday season, along with a glimpse of Azur’s Night-Before-Thanksgiving class with Chef Jeremy Ashby. Next is Chef Tom’s imaginative take on what to do After The Bird. Then Heather C. Watson’s hopes and dreams for Coach Calipari’s Wildcats this season.

And as always, there’s Ace Picks for the upcoming week’s gigs and events; Astrology; classifieds and more. Grab it.
