Two-time Oscar nominated director Tim Burton (“Frankenweenie”, 2013) brings another eccentric storyline to the big-screen, albeit minus Johnny Depp. “Big Eyes” follows the true story of Walter and Margaret Keane, played superbly by both Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”) and Amy Adams (“American Hustle”), as newlyweds in the 1950s with a shared fondness for art. As Walter and Margaret bond over their novel paintings depicting children with extremely large eyes, their talents take each of them in opposite directions. One delves deeper into her widely successful art production while the other attempts to claim, market and manipulate those paintings through lies.

Every year around this time, my wife and I make a $400 donation to public schools and I write a column about it. It may sound like I’m bragging about my generosity, but I’m not. See, I get the entire $400 back at income tax time. And you can do the same thing: give $200 as an individual or $400 as a couple to a public school – or spread it out over a few schools if you want – and get all your money back when you pay your state taxes. I highly recommend it. It’s a great deal, everybody wins. You get to do something good for school children, you get to feel good about yourself, and it doesn’t cost you a dime.
