    Cannes Review: Death Lingers & Lifts In Thoughtful 'Miele'

    If Michael Haneke's "Amour" presented death as a sobering inevitability, one that will test the bounds of our ability to love, actress Valeria Golino has a slightly more nuanced perspective in her directorial debut "Miele."

    Cannes Review: 'Fruitvale Station' Recounts A Tragic True-Life Story With Good Performances & Intentions, But Little Subtlety
