    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."

    TIFF Review: 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him & Her' Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Viola Davis & More

    You’d think that with all the sappy romantic comedies that exist, "When Harry Met Sally" and Richard Linklater’s 'Before...' series (just to name the most beloved), that relationship films have run their course and said all they’ve got to say.

    It's a good week for dream projects with Akiva Goldsman involved, with Warner Bros. helping to make them come true.
