Why You Have to See "Away We Go" This Weekend! 


I enjoyed this film! It's a bittersweet comedy about a couple (John Krasinksi and Maya Rudolph) looking for the perfect nest to raise their child. Director Sam Mendes ("Revolutionary Road," "American Beauty") knows how to make searing and memorable films. You will not be able to forget this couple taking a road trip in search of a perfect home.

It's the sweetest movie you should see this summer! The script by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida is smart and powerful, and I love the original music by Alex Murdoch.

Watch out for Maggie Gyllenhaal's scene-stealing performance as LN, a seemingly progressive mother who may be hiding a thing or two.

I will be posting my interviews with Krasinksi, Rudolph, and Mendes very, very soon. Wait 'til you see those interviews :happy

But for now, make a date for "Away We Go." It opens in limited release this Friday, June 5th.

Another generation, another "Hamlet" adaptation. This time, the William Shakespeare masterpiece is getting a makeover with a modern-day take ala Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

In "Hamlet," Emile Hirsch is on board to star as the doomed prince.

"Twilight's" Catherine Hardwicke is set to direct from a script currently being adapted by "Philadelphia's" Ron Nyswaner. Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen are producing.

Hirsch previously worked with Jinks and Cohen for "Milk," and the actor also worked with Hardwicke for "Lords of Dogtown."

As If It's a Surprise, Sacha Baron Cohen is Being Sued, Again! What Did "Bruno" Do Now? 


Can Sacha Baron Cohen ever work in peace? He was sued so many times for "Borat," and with his upcoming film "Bruno," more lawsuits are emerging, like this one. According to Variety:

LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) -- Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie isn't in theaters yet, but it's already producing the same sort of buzz and legal backlash that his last hit, "Borat," created. Richelle Olson sued the 37-year-old actor and NBC Universal on May 22, claiming an incident at a charity bingo tournament that was filmed for the upcoming "Bruno" left her disabled.

Olson claims she was severely injured after struggling with Cohen and his film crew at the event, held in Palmdale, Calif., two years ago. The lawsuit states she now needs a wheelchair or cane to move around.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages of more than $25,000.
