    Stephen Daldry Gets 'Wicked' While Jon Favreau Will Hang With 'Jersey Boys'

    Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close—movie review

    I doubt that anyone who lived through the events of September 11, 2001 could remain completely unmoved by the story of how one boy deals with the death of his father, who was trapped in one of the World Trade Center towers that morning.

    Review: 'Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close' Is Often Moving But Insufficiently Effective

    Oskar Schell, the protagonist of "Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close," isn’t like other boys. Sure, he likes laughing and junk food and having a good time like the other kids. But this overly precocious ten year old is more of an Encyclopedia Brown in training. With the guidance of his father, he p...
