Ἀφροδίτη - is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus. She was born from the foam of the sea.
“Do you not see what a great goddess Aphrodite is? She whom you can neither name nor measure, how great she is by nature from how great a thing she comes through. She nourishes you and me and all the mortals. And as proof, so that you might not only comprehend this in words, I will show you by deed, the strength of the goddess.

In 2000, playwright-cum filmmaker-Kenneth Lonergan’s quirky little sibling drama You Can Count on Me broke out of the festival circuit and went on to be nominated for two Academy Awards (for screenplay and for actress Laura Linney’s star turn).

But he came back, again and again—auditioning, he once said, 800 times without booking a single role. READ MORE
