    Although its title implies either a whimsical journey of self-discovery or an ironic riposte to the vacation from hell, the story of “Wish You Were Here” is, in either context, a disappointingly pedestrian experience. The story of a husband and father trying to return to his normal life after a vaca...

    'Precious' Author Geoffrey Fletcher Talks Eccentric Girl-Assassin Debut 'Violet & Daisy,' Starring Ronan and Bledel

    “Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire” was Geoffrey Fletcher’s first professionally produced script. “The irony,” he said back in 2009, “is that I feel like I’m a veteran at the same time.” After all, he was directing homemade, stop-motion thrillers -- starring his toys -- when he was 14.

    Weekend Preview: Delightful 'Much Ado About Nothing,' Unfunny 'Internship' and More

    Joss Whedon's jazzy, black-and-white version of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" is going down smooth as silk with reviewers. The film, which Whedon shot at his Santa Monica home in a 12-day period before "Avengers" post-production began, is easily the critical winner for the weekend.

    Review: 'Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie' Charts the Rise and Fall of One of TV's Most Controversial Figures

    When he was a teenager in Edison, N.J., Daniel Miller’s friends used to pile into cars and go to tapings of the incendiary “Morton Downey Jr. Show,” reporting back on developments “to our utter glee.” Miller never went himself, but he was a regular viewer of the seminal trash-TV talk show host and n...
