    Oscar Watch: Horse Whisperer Brannaman Talks Crying at Buck, Reuniting with Redford

The guy's a star: the magic charisma that works on horses, no matter how disturbed, shines out of him in person, too.

    Transformers 3 Set to Slaughter 2-D Field; Plus Terri, Aurora, Perfect Host, Uninspired Larry Crowne
