Susan Sarandon plays the Stage Mother from Hell in her new movie, The Last of Robin Hood: Her character turns a blind eye when her 15-year-old daughter (Dakota Fanning) starts an affair with a middle-aged Errol Flynn ( Kevin Kline).
You know it's a feel-good weekend at the movies when Melissa McCarthy and Susan Sarandon hit the road trip together and Keira Knightley sings Mark Ruffalo back from the brink of despair.
Susan Sarandon, Alfonso Cuaron, Bruce Dern, Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Mary Steenburgen are just a few of the actors and directors who will be celebrated at AARP's Movies for Grownups Awards Monday in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Greetings from New Orleans. I've just spent the evening strolling around the French Quarter, which for those of you who have never been is something of a cross between Downtown Disney and the Innermost Circle of Hell.But most importantly, this afternoon I was at the Louisiana Theatre at the New Orleans Convention Center watching the final preparations for our Movies for Grownups Film Festival. It's all part of AARP's Life@50+ Member Event, which is drawing tens of thousands of folks from all over the country.
If you haven't yet seen Laura Linney's "The Big C," this would be a good time to sample the audacious dark comedy that, over its first two seasons, made viewers laugh out loud and cry cathartic tears. Showtime launches the series' third season tonight (4/8) (along with new seasons of its "Nurse Jackie" and "The Borgias"), accompanied by free viewings of the premiere episode on the internet. Linney's cancer-stricken character, Cathy Jamison, gets some good news from her oncologist (Alan Alda), setting off a season of bargaining in her cancer journey. What will she do with her priceless gift of more time? Maybe a joyologist can help her find the answer.
