I walked away from Daniels' film deeply moved. As obvious as this film can be in its messages -- bigotry and racism: bad -- it still touches on moments of history from the recent past that need to be recalled, over and over.

Lee Daniels' The Butler is some serious, probably effective Oscar bait. It is also -- these things so often go together -- audience-pandering History Lite.

My Second Chance

Terence Stamp | Posted 09.11.2013 | Entertainment
Terence Stamp

In hindsight, perhaps the only regret I really hold on to in all my years of acting is turning down the chance to play Arthur in Josh Logan's Camelot. It was 1967, Vanessa Redgrave was set to co-star as Guinevere, and I was terrified of musicals.

Unfinished Song is set in England. But this is not a pastoral view of England set in rolling hills or a period piece in frilly bloomers. This is the other England that one rarely sees on the silver screen.

In addition to his timeless observations on love and death and empire and pretty much every other aspect of the human experience, Shakespeare devoted quite a bit of ink to money and how it affects us.

Movie Review: Unfinished Song

Marshall Fine | Posted 08.19.2013 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

The film is part of a genre: cranky but lovable oldsters, either rediscovering life or simply loving it. In this case, it's a bit of both, with death as the reigning subtext.
