Public Service Announcement: Liam Neeson's Sons Are Pretty Hot

24 March 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Liam Neeson brought two very special dates to the New York Rangers game against the Boston Bruins in NYC on Wednesday: his sons, Micheál and Daniel. The two, whose mom is the late Natasha Richardson, had a blast cheering and talking animatedly with their dad while also managing to look pretty damn fine. Micheál, 20, has Orlando Bloom's shaggy, mid-2000s hairstyle down, and Daniel, 19, looks like he just stepped off the set of The Wolf of Wall Street (in the best possible way). Liam, who recently lost quite a bit of weight for his role in Martin Scorsese's Silence, isn't out and about often, but it seemed like he was really enjoying the game with his sons. Check out more photos of their outing ahead, and then watch the trailer for Liam's enchanting animated movie! »

Review: "A Month In The Country" (1987) Starring Colin Firth, Kenneth Branagh And Natasha Richardson; Twilight Time Blu-ray Release

25 February 2016 3:32 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Doug Oswald

Two men find peace and friendship as they uncover a mystery in the Yorkshire countryside. “A Month in the Country” is one of those elegant movies about a bygone era in post Victorian England that has become enormously popular in movies such as those produced by Merchant-Ivory and in TV series like the recent “Downton Abbey.” The exploration of class distinctions and gender roles has been a staple in English drama in movies and TV for decades and the audience appears to always be hungry for more. The likes of Austen, Bronte and Dickens and stores of England through WWII have provided fertile ground for countless tales that continue to fascinate and entertain.  

A Month in the Country” features early career performances by Colin Firth and Kenneth Branagh. Both actors went on to enormous success and in the case of Branagh, as a successful director, too. Firth »
