The Proposal is the story of a tough editor Margaret Tate (Bullock) who forces her assistant Andrew Tate (Ryan Reynolds) to marry her so she can stay in the U. (Interestingly, in the movie Bullock plays a Canadian and Reynolds an American while in real life, the reverse is true).What happens next will not surprise viewers but they will get many laughs along the way.
Betty White (from the Golden Girls) almost steals the show as Andrew's 90 year old "Gammy".
A Foreign Policy Association blogpost last month points out one of the great ironies of Arctic environmental activism: the fact that all too often, environmentalists seek justice for the environment and animals like polar bears while Inuit and other indigenous peoples living in the Arctic are left out of the conversation.
