Women crush it! How wonderful to have women leading the pack in an action flick.
The best evening out that you probably haven't heard about is going on every Wednesday night at Minton's, an old-fashioned supper club with equal emphasis on both words.
For one night, the regal and majestic qualities of royalty have you wondering about a world that never before felt so close at hand.
Just now, on two different stages roughly five blocks apart, on and off-Broadway, two different actors are playing Winston Churchill more or less wreathed in smiles.
In an episode of Prime Suspect, the gripping 1991 TV crime series, the remarkable Helen Mirren, playing DCI Jane Tennison, snaps at a detective who ad...
In Peter Morton's clever and humorous work of historic fiction, the queen moves in and out of time, not chronologically, waxing wise on world events, and with the wizardry of dressers, changes costume onstage.
The Audience gives us Ms. Mirren, but is likely to be a one-shot arrow. The star's performance is more than enough to carry the day, and carry the play, to surefire success; while Elizabeth The Queen has her supporters and her detractors, Mirren's canny and well-rounded performance is sure to garner unanimous huzzahs.

It took watching a recent Academy Award nominated film to put forth the following question. Are British actors superior in both talent and desirability, in most cases, than American actors? And it is such a question, which certainly is not the first time it's ever been asked.
Just in time for the ideal reflections on the new year ahead, I sat down with filmmaker Lee Daniels on a terrace overlooking the splendid Arabian Gulf during the recent Dubai International Film Festival.
There's an entire genre -- Vulture calls it British Women Getting It Done -- where women take matters into their own hands to solve crimes, save lives and sometimes, God forbid, knock a few strands of hair out of place. These ladies aren't your mother's Miss Marple.
This has a lot of cooking with a bit of love spiced in with the cooking, there are some fantastic one-liners that make the audience roar with laughter and this is all included in a fantastic adventure.
Everything comes alive in this film from the delightful differences in the characters to the golden glow of the french countryside.
