    Big Screen | Duvall Gets High Marks For "Get Low"

    After picking up the film at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, Sony Pictures Classics held back Aaron Schneider's "Get Low" so as to not let it get lost in a late 2009 awards slate that was already quite stacked for the distributor.

    REVIEW | Gender Division: Looking Back at Sally Potter's "Orlando"

    Eighteen years after its initial theatrical release, "Orlando" returns to theaters with all of its original allure intact, and then some.
