    Viola Davis & Jeffrey Wright Join 'Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close'

    After a superb debut a decade ago with "Billy Elliot," it looked like theatre director Stephen Daldry could become a real force in the cinema world. But while his films have undoubtedly become regular awards bait, the quality seems to slip with each picture: "The Hours" has a rich ensemble, but they...
