June 30, 2015

Director Stephen Frears and Michelle Pfeiffer first collaborated together on Dangerous Liaisons (1988) and the result was a commercial and critical success, as well as one of the actress’ strongest performances to date as a vulnerable woman at the mercy... 

Revolutionary Road

May 29, 2009

Between The Reader and Revolutionary Road, it’s safe to say that 2008 was been a very good year for Kate Winslet. She won or was nominated for all of the major acting awards for either one of these two films. She also won the big prize that she’s...

Fried Green Tomatoes: Anniversary Edition

June 14, 2006

Every decade has its chick flicks that define those years and feature a who’s who of up-and-coming actresses mixed with veterans. In the 1980s, it was Steel Magnolias (1989) and in the 1990s it was Fried Green Tomatoes (1991), a southern folktale based... 

Rumor Has It

May 25, 2006

Since her highly publicized break-up with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston has wisely kept busy making movies. Alas, they haven’t been that good. Both Derailed (2005) and Rumor Has It (2005) came and went from theatres relatively fast. The latter film was...
