Theater Mania Juliette Binoche to return to the stage with Sophocles' Antigone

Playbill interviews Laura Benanti 

Variety the charming animated fable Song of the Sea takes Best Picture at the Irish Film Awards. Have you seen it yet? It was very nearly my favorite of last year's animated pictures. 

Guardian interviews Vincent Cassell on his disturbing Australian drama Partisan with a look back at his now-classic breakthrough in La Haine (which might get a sequel)

Brian Grazer Pays Tribute to ‘A Beautiful Mind’ Subject John Nash
