    The Woman In Black—movie review

    As ghost stories go, this one isn’t bad, but the filmmakers take an awfully long time getting to the actual plot, content to spend the first half of the movie doling out “boo!” moments…more than I’ve ever experienced in one motion picture! Most of them are pretty effec...

    'The Help' & 'The Artist' Lead The Field At Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

    In the seventeen years that they've been running for, the annual Screen Actors' Guild Awards have proven to be a pretty reliable precursor for the acting categories at the Academy Awards. And why shouldn't they? With the actors who nominate their peers for the Oscars overwhelmingly being...

    Where are the Women at the Indie Spirit Nominations?

    TIFF- Albert Nobbs

    It was so great to see Glenn Close back on the big screen in Albert Nobbs. It's been too long. She, like many other actresses of her generation, have found TV to be the place where she can play richer characters than in film.
