Coffee is King

Larry Crowne stars Tom Hanks as a longtime, loyal employee who expects a promotion, but ends up being laid off. With no job prospects or life plans in sight, he enrolls in a college course to build self-esteem. What he finds is that he learns more about life than schoolwork thanks to an outspoken teacher (Julia Roberts) with issues of her own. One thing is constant – his favorite coffee mug sporting a crown. Here is a project to make your own crowned cup!
