    July 17, 2015
    Buried in a news item yesterday about the movie "Lego Batman," The Hollywood Reporter mentioned offhandedly that actor Michael Cera has acquired the rights to "Masters of Atlantis," the brilliant, absurdist cult-farce by Little Rock author Charles Portis.

  • New Jeff Nichols film announced, 'Loving'

    June 19, 2015
    I'm late to this, but Deadline Hollywood has reported that Little Rock native Jeff Nichols ("Mud," "Take Shelter") has settled on his next project, a film he wrote and will direct titled "Loving." Inspired by the documentary "The Loving Story," the film is to be based on the story of the couple, Mildred and Richard Loving, who instigated the landmark 1967 Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia, which struck down laws prohibiting interracial marriage — a case commemorated every year on June 12, Loving Day. /more/

  • Come watch Hitchcock's 'North by Northwest' with us Thursday at Ron Robinson

    June 15, 2015
    With spies, triple crosses, an icy blonde, mistaken identity, a murderous biplane and Cary Grant wearing the most dirt-repelling gray suit in all of film history, Hitchcock's 1959 thriller "North By Northwest" may well have invented the modern thriller, and it's still a hell of a good time at the movies. Now's your chance to see it on the big screen, with this week's Thursday night screening at Little Rock's Ron Robinson Theater, part of the Arkansas Times film series. /more/
  • What's not to love about the Bentonville Film Festival? Walmart.

    May 19, 2015
    The Bentonville Film Festival, launched this year by actress Geena Davis and held earlier this month from May 5-9, earned a number of largely positive notices from major outlets like the Huffington Post ("At the Bentonville Film Festival, Women Are Playing in the Major Leagues"), the L.A. Times ("Bentonville Film Festival pushes diversity message from year one") and the New York Times ("Bentonville, Ark., Hosts a Film Festival Without a Movie Theater"), most of them centering on its unique and vital agenda — promoting diversity and gender equality in filmmaking — and its celebrity cache (e.g. an acting workshop taught by Robert De Niro, a softball game led by Rosie O'Donnell, etc.). /more/

    We've been reading a kergillion books lately at our house. Scrambling to make it to 1,000 books before kindergarten. Don't tell them I said this, but I did the math and I don't think we'll make it. Regardless, we've read some wonderful books, but one that has moved me the most in the last few weeks is "Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes." It is amazing at putting the little things into the context of enormous planet earth. It is beautifully illustrated and handily written.
