    Yates' Revolutionary Road: Novel to Film

    Oscar Watch 2008: Kate and Leo, Not Boleyn Girls

    I'm so glad the Oscar season is over that the idea of professional Oscar watchers already predicting next year's awards makes me feel, well, tired. But this is their life, 24/7, while I move on to such mundane annual rituals as the ShoWest exhibitor convention in Las Vegas.
