Eastern European immigrants Janos and Karina Kovac should be flourishing, but their American dream is vanishing quicker than the colours on their new country’s sun-drenched flag. Janos is fatigued following a decade of twelve-hour hours at the local mill, seven days a week. Meanwhile, Karina believes she has found an escape from their run-down ethnic neighbourhood in the modern home of a mill manager—until she realises she is required to do both housekeeping and mistress tasks. Though she dislikes her boss’ approaches, they are preferable to being touched by drunks at the town’s boarding house.
The Kovac family begins to crumble when Janos sees a horrible accident at his furnace on the same day Karina learns she will lose her job. Janos discovers that there are individuals at the mill who are a larger danger to his life than the labour itself, while Karina, terrified of returning to work at the boarding home, becomes unhinged and wreaks havoc so broad that her children are swept up in the storm. Janos must reconstruct his damaged family with the assistance of an unusual ally in the aftermath.
Beneath the Veil of Smoke and Ash, an impeccably researched and genuinely human film, presents a timeless message about mental illness while paying honour to America’s immigrant forebears’ sacrifices.

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus
Elizabeth Zott, a chemist, is not your typical woman. Elizabeth Zott, for example, would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an ordinary woman. But it’s the early 1960s, and her all-male Hastings Research Institute staff takes an unscientific approach to equality. Except for Calvin Evans, a lonely, smart, Nobel-prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with her brains, of all things. The end outcome is true chemistry.
Life, like science, is unexpected. As a result, a few years later, Elizabeth Zott is not only a single mother, but also the reluctant star of America’s most popular cookery show, Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unconventional cooking method (“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”) is groundbreaking. But as her fan base develops, not everyone is pleased. Elizabeth Zott, it turns out, isn’t simply training women to cook. She’s challenging them to deviate from the status quo.
Lessons in Chemistry is as distinctive and lively as its protagonist, with laugh-out-loud humorous, astute observations, and a sparkling ensemble of supporting characters.
