7 Actors Who've Played Romeo Montague
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In anticipation of this month's theatrical release of Romeo and Juliet (from Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes), my "Twisted Lit" co-author, Kim Askew, and I have rounded up the Hollywood hotties who are always welcome at our metaphorical balcony (and those which, arguably, ought to be banished). See if you agree with our Shakespearean shortlist: Orlando Bloom Romeo Rating: 3 out of 5 Currently playing young Montague on Broadway, the man who made an elf seem sexy (Legolas!) can buckle our knees, no problem, even despite the fact that at 35, he's downright geriatric for the role. Douglas Booth Romeo Rating: 4 out of 5 Romancing Hailee Steinfeld's Juliet in the upcoming theatrical release (in theaters October 11), this Romeo's got the requisite "pretty boy" looks and a jawbone sharper than the sword he uses to (spoiler alert), slay Tybalt. Having also played Pip in a recent adaptation of Great Expectations, Booth is, in a word, any English major's dream. Nicholas Houl ...

James Ponsoldt: The 25 Best Coming-Of-Age Films Ever
Huffington Post - over 3 years
25. BIG WEDNESDAY: Good friends, giant Malibu waves, and Vietnam. Perfect movie combination. John Milius wrote and directed this beautiful 1978 film, and -- for whatever reason -- it doesn't seem to get nearly enough recognition (it's far more grounded and realistic than his '80s offerings, which include "Red Dawn"). The film is a real stunner, and Gary Busey gives one of his finest performances (for me, it's up there with "The Buddy Holly Story"). 24. APARAJITO: The second in Satyajit Ray's stunning "Apu Trilogy," which has always felt like a Bengali cousin to Truffaut's Antoine Doinel films. Made in 1956 (years before Truffaut's first film), "Aparajito" is one of the most timeless and pure coming-of-age films I know, and one of the most painful -- it deals unflinchingly with grief over the loss of a parent, and manages to gracefully depict a child's loss of innocence and awareness of mortality. Apu is a different person at the end of "Aparajito" -- alive, but scarred by l ...
