Saving Mr. Banks Singalong at The Four Seasons
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Disney scores again! First it was multi-Oscar winning Mary Poppins, now Saving Mr. Banks, a biopic of Mary Poppins writer P. L. Travers. In the person of Emma Thompson she's stern, a bit of a frump, Britishly out of step, yet endearing as she comes around giving Walt Disney the rights to make this classic musical. Let's face it: who can say no to Tom Hanks? Set in two time frames, the 1960's when Disney finally got Travers to agree and the 1930's back brush Australia where Travers nee Helen Goff grew up, a daughter of an alcoholic with lofty dreams played movingly by Colin Farrell. Featuring a stellar supporting cast of Jason Schwartzman, Paul Giamatti, Rachel Griffiths, Kathy Baker, B. J. Novak, the miracle of this movie is its tone: with sad and funny in equal measure, Saving Mr. Banks will surely top award season lists.

Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Thursday, July 21, 1983 was a sweltering hot and sticky 95-degree day in New York City. It was the ninth day of 90-degree weather in 10 days. Ladies on the street fanned themselves below noisy air-conditioner window units. Hot steam rose from the pavement. Below ground, subway cars were boiling. After days of suffering, the unrelenting heat had finally pushed resilient New Yorkers to their breaking point. Even ice became a commodity. Savvy street vendors started charging 50 cents for a cup. That morning, weather forecasters predicted thunderstorms for New York, but no one could have anticipated what was about to come. In 1983 there were few stars who could command attention like Diana Ross. Since she first began her career with the Supremes in the '60s, Ross consistently broke down barriers and set an example for others to follow. With 18 number-one hits, an Academy Award nomination, a Tony, and the title of Billboard's Female Entertainer of the Century, Ross' success was ...
