    'The Paperboy': Nicole, Zac and Alligators

    On screen in The Paperboy and on stage at the New York Film Festival press conference afterwards, Nicole Kidman seemed – and this is compliment though it may not sound like one—less plastic than she has in the recent past. She is fearless and pretty convincing in the film. If she lo...

    Telluride Review: Dennis Quaid, Zac Efron and a Tense Final Act Nearly Salvage Ramin Bahrani's Middling 'At Any Price'

    "Expand or die" is the mantra spouted by farmers in Ramin Bahrani's "At Any Price," a menacing slogan that reflects the explosion of the cornfield market into a $2 trillion industry. It also provides a reminder of the movie's production conditions when compared to everyth...

    With Zac Efron using his good looks to try and carry "The Lucky One" earlier this year, the actor has been keen to take some risks as well.
