    Winter’s Tale

    Jessica Brown-Findlay is the winsome heroine in the 1916 portion of the story, and it’s nice to see Eva Marie Saint in a lovely cameo, but I shudder to think what Valentine’s date night will be like for couples who choose to see "Winter’s Tale."

    Review: 'Winter's Tale' Starring Colin Farrell, Russell Crowe & Jennifer Connelly

    Akiva Goldsman is one of those Hollywood screenwriters who has accrued a fair amount of animosity over the years, both because of his perceived lack of talent (he did have a hand in scripting "Batman & Robin," "The Da Vinci Code," and "Lost in Space," amongst others) and for his almost unparalleled ...

    Will 'Winter's Tale' Revitalize the Career of Colin Farrell?

    Colin Farrell is in need of a career turnaround. After a string of misses including horror remake "Fright Night," the "Total Recall" would-be reboot, "Seven Psychopaths" (where Farrell was dull and flat) and the mixed reviews for "Saving Mr. Banks" (not Farrell's fault), the Irish actor has "Winter'...

    Review: Decent & Well-Acted 'Saving Mr. Banks' With Tom Hanks & Emma Thompson

    Though the general public doesn't always share their enthusiasm, Hollywood loves making movies about itself. Whether fictional or based in reality, it's rare for a year to pass without some kind of film about filmmaking, from classics like "Sunset Boulevard" and "Mulholland Drive" to, uh, not-classi...

    The encouraging scene in the trailer for Saving Mr. Banks has Emma Thompson as the recalcitrant author P.L. Travers, telling her agent why she does not want Walt Disney to put her heroine on screen. "I know what he'll do to her -- she'll be cavorting and twinkling," she says, with great derision.
