Stage Door: <i>The Cherry Orchard, Mr. Popper's Penguins</i>
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Adaptions are tricky. In the case of The Cherry Orchard, the Broadway revival now at the American Airlines Theater, the key is to retain sympathy for Chekhov's characters -- decadent aristocrats, materialistic bourgeoisie, student revolutionaries and serfs -- while retaining empathy for their specific circumstances. Actress Ranevskaya (a centered Diane Lane), the self-absorbed lady of the bankrupt manor, and her brother Gaev (John Glover), are forced to sell their estate and beloved orchard. Aristocratic wealth and power are changing; a middle-class is slowly emerging. Chekhov portrays the socio-economic class wars at a crucial crossroads in Russian history. Ranevskaya, who has returned from Paris, misses her childhood home, but is ill-equipped financially to save it. Neither can Gaev, an eccentric more obsessed with billiards than the bottom line. It is Ranevskaya's children, Anya (Tavi Gevinson) and Varya (Celia Kennan-Bolger), who will pay the higher price for paren...

A Semi-Modest Proposal
Huffington Post - about 2 years
I've watched 22 SAG nominated films this month, and I've come to the conclusion that instead of casting women in most studio releases, they should use life sized cardboard cutouts instead of real women. These flat cardboard women would have one of two expressions on their face 1. A supportive, proud and/or loving smile. 2. concern. Amy Ryan's character in Bridge of Spies could have been played by a pair of cutouts. Diane Lane's character in Trumbo could have been played by cutouts. All of the women in The Revenant should have been played by cardboard cutouts. These life sized paper dolls, could save the studio so much money. Besides not adhering to an 8 hour workday (the cutouts could work unlimited hours), they wouldn't have to pay for a stand-in when the film crew is lighting a scene. They'd also save money on trailers, food and personal assistants. When you think of the typical Hollywood studio movie, there's usually only one or two small female roles anyway. It m...

Top Ten Films of 2015
Huffington Post - about 2 years
When you read other Top Ten Film lists, consider that the journalists do not give equal weight to docs, animation and dramatic features, nor foreign versus American indies and studio pictures. Perhaps, they should call their lists "Top Ten Films That We All Generally Write About." 1. Wild Tales (dir. Damian Szifron) Argentine writer-director Damian Szifron has a darkly hilarious confection in these six wonderfully imaginative scenarios. Oscar nominated for Foreign film, Wild Tales also swept through the Argentine Academy Awards, its crazy tales of retribution due to road rage, infidelity at a wedding and the like connecting with the common man and woman. 2. Spotlight (dir. Tom McCarthy) Can Michael Keaton pick them or what? Last year, he headlined Birdman, the best film of the year. Now, he leads a tremendous ensemble cast, including Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci and Jamey Sheridan, in the story of the Boston Globe's expose of molestation in the Catholic Church. ...

7 Gift Ideas for the Writer in Your Life
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Several years ago, a writer friend told me what she asked her husband to give her for the holidays. "I said I'd really love him to leave, with our son, for a long weekend." This is a woman with a great marriage and a terrific relationship with her son. But she wanted what every writer wants: time alone to think and write. If you have a writer in your life, here are a few gift ideas that will guarantee your place in future acknowledgments. 1. Take a page out of Roald Dahl's book. Every writer dreams of having a backyard cottage, similar to Dahl's "writing hut." English cottages and charming huts might seem out of reach, but a good carpenter could build a modest cottage on the cheap. Maybe give your favorite writer a copy of Michael Pollan's A Place Of My Own: The Architecture of Daydreams, in which the author recounts the story of how he built a small writing studio in the woods near his home. The book could serve as a placeholder for the cottage you or a hired carpenter wil...

Should I Stay or Should I Go? How to Know When It's Time to Leave a Relationship
Huffington Post - over 2 years
There are actually many signs, if we pay attention. But signs or not, we might hesitate to leave a relationship out of insecurity or uncertainty. We may doubt ourselves and wonder if it's really the right thing to do. We wonder if we should give our partner one more chance, even though we've already given him a hundred before that. In a bad relationship, we can lose sight of our direction, get derailed from our life, disconnected from our friends, our family, and our work, and still find ourselves struggling to make that difficult and FINAL decision... even though in our heart of hearts... we know. The truth is, if we get quiet within ourselves, and really listen, we always know if something or someone is right for us. Not only that, we probably have known right from the start. If we remember back to when we first met, we can remember that those doubts and concerns were there in the first two or three meetings. But as time went by, we may have downplayed those concerns, covering th...

"Trumbo": Blacklisted Again!
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Dalton Trumbo is back! The United States' best screen writer, black-listed and imprisoned during the 1950s McCarthy era witch hunts, has returned full of life, politics and attitude in Jay Roach's smart, funny unrepentant film "Trumbo." Trumbo clearly had many lives. In 1939, he won the National Book Award for his anti-war novel "Johnny Got His Gun," the story of Joe Bonham, a young soldier who lost his arms, legs and his face to an artillery shell explosion. Unable to kill himself, Bonham wanted to serve as an example of the horrors of war. Bonham enabled Trumbo to do just this, as the book, read in schools around the world, has been twice made into movies and performed as well in theaters internationally. Beyond his novels and many short stories, Dalton Trumbo was most successful as one of Hollywood's most sought after and highly paid screen writers. Prior to the end of World War II, Trumbo scripted a variety of films including the popular war epic "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" (...
