    On the Move: Jessica Paré Finally Hitting "Stardom"?

    Now that actress Jessica Paré is moving up in the world of TV's "Mad Men," perhaps she'll also be able to get better film roles than her recent stint as a random topless blond in a hot tub in "Hot Tub Time Machine." She's had a few decent indie gigs in the past decade -- in spite of her big teeth, which were mentioned as being non-Hollywood-friendly in last night's "Mad Men" season finale -- including parts in Deepa Mehta's "Bollywood/Hollywood" and the 2001 boarding school drama "Lost and Delirious." But I continue to think of her mostly from her lead role in Denys Arcand's "Stardom," which should have been her true breakthrough back in 2000...

    "Conviction" - The Tear-Jerker That Could Have Been

    For a movie that features Hilary Swank crying a lot, "Conviction" doesn't really give its audience much to weep about. It's a fairly drama-less drama, similar to "Secretariat" in the way its plot direction is expected and possibly foreknown more than merely predictable.

Yes, Swank and Rockwell -- and in very, very minor roles, Melissa Leo and Juliette Lewis -- give unsurprisingly good performances. But there could have been more (a lot more, as I'll explain later). For instance, as far as I can tell the film is supposed to ...
