People occasionally ask me how I choose the films I see at a film festival. There's a long, complicated answer to that but let's go with a short one: Sometimes the films pick me.
Bernie Sahlins died Sunday at home in Chicago. He was 90 years old. And if there was a flicker of darkness on every single stage across the world, the scope of the tribute would be justified.
The funny woman wields humor in such a way as to remove one gag (through her refusal of silence), even as she makes another -- a joke. Thus, she simultaneously resists shutting down and shutting up.
How many men and women are ready to commit to marriage at 21? Remember, the only time you can change a man is when he's in diapers. The Princeton mom's retro rhetoric is reminiscent of the "ring by spring" mandate for coeds to get engaged by graduation.

As a fan of Tina Fey, Paul Rudd and director Paul Weitz, I looked forward to hearing what words of wisdom they would impart about parenting and the college admissions process. Here are some snippets.
The star-studded opening was enough to cause the nine cigar-chomping, beer-drinking guys I was playing poker with to actually freeze an "All-In" raise, mid-hand, in order to watch it as it happened.
I'm proud to be a woman and nobody's ever accused me of being too accommodating, but there's a few conversations around women that have been amusing me lately.
