Tom Hanks in California Typewriter: "I probably have 250 plus typewriters in my collection."

What do Pulitzer Prize winners Sam Shepard (Buried Child, 1979) and David McCullough (Truman, 1992 and John Adams, 2001), two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks (Philadelphia, 1994 and Forrest Gump, 1995), and seven-time Grammy Award winner John Mayer have in common?

Structured around the story of the California Typewriter repair shop in Berkeley, Nichol takes us on an energetic journey with collector Martin Howard, explores the work of sculptor Jeremy Mayer, and reenacts the Ed Ruscha and Mason Williams' Royal Road Test execution.

Following the opening night theatrical 7:30pm premiere on this Friday, August 18 at Metrograph in New York there will be a discussion and Q&A with the. »

Laura Linney: 'Having a child later in life has been wonderful'

28 July 2017 3:17 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

She was a lying needy sister in Savages, an apple pie innocent in Tales of the City – and now, in Ozark, she’s fleeing Mexican drug barons. The star talks about Hugh Grant’s career, working with the wrong people, and the joys of late motherhood

It is a mark of how resistant she is to typecasting that when someone stops Laura Linney in the street and says “I love you in … ” she never knows how the sentence will end. “There are the Tales of the City fans, and they’re rabid,” she says. “There are the Love Actually fans, who are fantastic.
