'Why Is This Happening to You, Mom?' Kimberly Williams-Paisley Writes Candid, Emotional Book About Her Mother's Struggle with Dementia

30 March 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kimberly Williams-Paisley started noticing odd changes in her mother's behavior when she got engaged to country superstar Brad Paisley in 2002. When the Father of the Bride actress excitedly told her mother, Linda Williams, that she was getting married, she was met, in part, with silence - not exactly the reaction Williams-Paisley expected, she tells People. "We are such a close family and I was the first kid to get engaged and I thought, 'That's what it is,' " says Williams-Paisley, 44. After she and Paisley wed in 2003, her mother embraced her son-in-law wholeheartedly, but continued acting in ways her family had never seen before. »

9 Screen-to-Broadway Disney Musicals

17 March 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Disney Theatrical Productions, sometimes known as Disney on Broadway, is responsible for some of the most magical moments you’re likely to experience on the Great White Way. When Disney vet Ron Logan first founded Walt Disney Theatrical in 1993, fresh off the success of “Beauty and the Beast,” he could only have imagined how far the onstage empire would extend; with musical greats such as Alan Menken and Tim Rice writing brilliant tunes for big-screen hit after big-screen hit, theatrical productions were a logical—yet thrillingly ambitious—next step. Today, Disney’s run of critically and commercially successful screen-to-stage shows continues, and not just on Broadway. “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” has enjoyed several regional productions, and “The Jungle Book” has bowed in Chicago and Boston. Meanwhile, a slew of other movies are in varying stages of development as Disney musicals: “The Princess Bride,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Freaky Friday,” “Father of the Bride, »

29 February 2016 12:57 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Nancy Meyers

Written by: Nancy Meyers

Starring: Anne Hathaway, Robert de Niro, Rene Russo

Nancy Meyers has been working within her specific niche in the Hollywood movie market for quite a few years now and while similar themes continue to weave through her work, and could be seen as repetitive, she manages to keep it fresh every time. Her previous titles include The Holiday, Something’s Gotta Give, It’s Complicated and she wrote the screenplay for 1991’s Father of the Bride. Her new movie, The Intern, stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro and brings forth the charm and feel-good factor again.

De Niro plays 70-year-old Ben Whittaker, a widower who’s introduced to us through the video he’s made for a job application. After finding a ‘Senior Internship’ flyer in his local neighbourhood of Brooklyn, we quickly learn that he loves to explore, is up for »
