Theater: Helen Mirren -- The Queen of Broadway

Michael Giltz

The Audience is polished to a fault, proceeding with clockwork efficiency from a little comedy to a little drama, from the personal to the political and back again. Not a moment of the play will actually surprise you. But the production of the play is faultless.

Movie Review: Philomena

Her name is Philomena Lee and, as played by Judi Dench in what should be an Oscar-nominated performance, she's a deceptively ordinary older woman with a mission.
