That’s Mayor Jimmy Smits To You, Thanks Very Much!

Jimmy Smits has been cast as the mayor of Los Angeles in Stephen Gaghan’s NBC drama pilot “S.I.L.A.” The actor, who also starred in NBC’s short-lived “Outlaw,” plays a mayor with aspirations to run for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat — but who may be undone by a reputation for womanizing and ties to a criminal overlord. The show is similar in structure to “Traffic,” for which Gaghan won an Oscar for best adapted screenplay. It examines Los Angeles from the persective of an elite law enforcement unit. As in “Traffic,” the personal and political are closely interlinked. The cast of the series also includes Noah Emmerich, Danny Pino, Daniella Alonso, Matthew Levy, Madchen Amick, and Luis Chavez.

The Notable Films of 2010: Part Four

Georgia

Opens: 2010

Cast: Val Kilmer, Andy Garcia, Rupert Friend, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Johnathon Schaech

Director: Renny Harlin

Summary: An American journalist, his cameraman, and a Georgian native get caught in the crossfire of the five-day Russia-Georgia conflict in August 2008, and then have to deal with their obligation to be impartial.

Analysis: A timely parable on war, or Hollywood propaganda filmmaking at its worst? Wherever it goes, especially in Europe and the former Soviet states, "Georgia" will cause a lot of talk and controversy as the incidents depicted are still so fresh in many's minds.

Shot on-location in Tbilisi, the project also marks a potential return to form for Finnish director Renny Harlin. Given the right material the skilled action director delivered three

If holiday madness has got you a little stressed, be thankful you’re not in the shoes of Della (Kim Basinger), the heroine of While She Was Out. In the film, opening in limited release today (see details at its website here) from Anchor Bay Entertainment, crowds, long lines and family unpleasantries are the least of the Yuletide pressures she confronts.

Well, Ok, family is one source of the tension, specifically her emotionally and physically abusive husband Kenneth (Craig Sheffer). Partially to escape him for a couple of hours and partially to pick up some last-minute wrapping paper, Della drives out of her home in a gated community to visit a nearby shopping mall on Christmas Eve. In the filled-to-bursting parking lot, she discovers a car taking up two spaces and lets its owner know just how she feels about it via a note on the windshield. Unfortunately, said owner
