Haiku Reviews: Mythology, Twinkies and Iraq (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 06/10/11 05:56 AM ET   Updated: 08/09/11 06:12 AM ET

HuffPost Arts' Haiku Reviews is a weekly feature where invited critics review exhibitions and performances in short form. Some will be in the traditional Haiku form of 5x7x5 syllables, others might be a sonnet or a string of words together. This week, Peter Frank, Laurence Vittes and George Heymont give quick takes on music, theatre and visual art from Los Angeles to Warsaw. Is there a show or performance that you think people should know about? Write a Haiku with a link and shine a light on something you think is noteworthy too.

HAIKU REVIEW: Written by Paul Marcarelli and directed by Steven Williford, this gripping new film examines what happens when a gay teacher (Jason Butler Harner) in a small Connecticut town is falsely accused of inappropriately touching a student. The accusation is wildly off base because (a) Michael has been trying to save Jason's scholarship from getting cancelled, and (b) along with another faculty member, Michael rushed to intercede when Jason was being bullied by some other students. The Green (which features Cheyenne Jackson and Illeana Douglas) packs an emotional wallop.
