Movie review: A king stands up to the Nazis It’s hard to stand out among the plethora of World War II movies, but director Erik Poppe miraculously finds a way with "The King’s Choice," a refreshing recount of how Norway’s reigning monarch once daringly jabbed a thorn into Hitler’s side. It happened over a roughly 72-hour period in April 1940, as German soldiers – claiming to be Norway’s friend – stormed into Oslo looking to claim its strategic harbor and rape the nation of its abundant natural [...]

Music scene: McMurtry tour hits area next week James McMurtry is a master at writing songs that capture the struggles and sometimes doomed tenacity of forgotten Americans, the middle classes and lower classes battling a changing economy and changing world around them. McMurtry’s current tour has only one New England stop, next Wednesday at Brighton Music Hall.His 2004 song "We Can’t Make It Here" deftly captured the desperation of people whose livelihoods and future seemed lost in the [...]

Movie review: 'Christopher Robin' gets lost in... "Goodbye Christopher Robin" might depict the origins of the much-beloved Winnie-the-Pooh, but it is definitely not a kid’s movie, despite some precocious mugging from the mop-topped tot (Will Tilston) of the film’s title. On one level it’s a cautionary tale about what happens when parents pimp their kids for fame and fortune. You could say Alan Alexander Milne (the ubiquitous Domhnall Gleeson) and his beautiful socialite wife Daphne (Margot Robbie) were early practitioners [...]

Movie review: 'Breathe' doesn't take your... Motion-capture maestro Andy Serkis (Gollum from "The Lord of the Rings" and Caesar from "The Planet of the Apes") displays significantly less dexterity in his directorial debut, "Breathe." It’s yet another triumph-of-the-human-spirit story that checks all the boxes in telling how disability advocate Robin Cavendish refused to allow a crippling bout of polio prevent him from leading a "normal" life.Stricken at age 28, Cavendish was paralyzed from the neck down and given only [...]

Bluegrass band Southern Rail in Mansfield on... Southern Rail, an award-winning New England bluegrass band known for its tightly woven harmonies, original and traditional songs, and high-energy performances, returns to the Rose Garden Coffeehouse in Mansfield, Mass., at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Theater review: Tragedy, comedy meet in... What can a child demand of a parent? And what does a parent owe to a child? Despite the emphasis on a father who is a closeted gay, and his daughter who grows up into a lesbian cartoonist –unlikely subjects for a musical– "Fun Home" sets them center stage to listen or not hear each other: parent and child, husband and wife."Fun Home," winner of five Tony awards in 2015 including best musical, has landed at the Boston Opera House in a superlative production on its first [...]

Football, history, science collide in 'Gridiron... Boston is home to the five-time Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots, so we know a lot about gridiron greatness. But a new exhibition at the Museum of Science, aptly titled "Gridiron Glory," a traveling Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibit, shows there is a lot more greatness across professional football than what transpires at Gillette Stadium.Comprised of more than 200 photographs, documents, clips from NFL Films and other artifacts from the 125-year history of professional [...]

Theater: New Rep's 'Oleanna' takes on renewed...   By Iris FangerFor The Patriot LedgerIf, as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then so is evil intent, at least according to playwright, David Mamet. His play, "Oleanna," premiered in 1992 when the nation was still roiled by Anita Hill’s testimony in the U.S. Senate against Clarence Thomas. As luck would have it, the serendipity in timing for New Rep’s newest production coincides with another furious debate about [...]

Theater review: 'Lizzie' revival remains a... Did Lizzie Borden brutally kill her father and stepmother on a hot August Fall River morning 125 years ago? Lacking any witnesses, direct evidence or confessions, a jury found her not guilty, but given the circumstances and tension between daughter and parents, the question lingers."Lizzie of Fall River," written by local playwrights Steve Dooner and Marc Songini, uses transcripts from the pre-trial inquest and flashbacks based on the evidence, to examine what might have happened, [...]

Stay Tuned: Fall TV review: ‘SEAL... David Boreanaz, formerly of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” and “Bones” is back this season as the superstar leader of an elite Navy SEAL team. Boreanaz’s man’s man swagger is a perfect fit for his latest TV character, Jason Hayes, a military hero who puts his team and his country before his family. It’s a choice that has personal consequences of course, and Jason’s issues, complicated by the death of his friend during a [...]

30 years later, 'Witches of Eastwick' continues... COHASSET – The opening to Michael Cristofer’s screenplay for "The Witches of Eastwick" sets the scene: "A picture-postcard New England village. Peaceful and just a little mysterious in its stillness."The camera swoops down through the clouds and alights on this seaside paradise dotted with a graceful white church, lush green common, white clapboard houses and cozy inlets all bathed in a golden glow. It’s charming – and it’s Cohasset, a town that after [...]

THEATER PREVIEW: 'Fun Home' explores secrets... At the start of the musical “Fun Home,” the narrator tells the audience the startling truth about her life.

Movie review: Adam Sandler is a revelation in... Many, including me, have taken a perverse joy in kicking Adam Sandler to the curb. But it’s Sandler who gets the last – and best – laugh by punching us in the schadenfreude with a career-best performance in the "The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)." The only thing better than him is the movie itself, a dark, cerebral comedy written and directed by Noah Baumbach, who out Woody Allens Woody Allen with an acerbic, yet tender story of three neurotic siblings crippled by [...]

Movie review: 'Florida Project' is more magical... It’s probably a stretch to compare wunderkind filmmaker Sean Baker with author John Steinbeck, but hear me out. For one, the two auteurs share an affinity for people and families living on the edge of poverty. And two, they see grace and nobility in the ability of the downtrodden to never yield to their plight. They may have little or no money, but they aren’t going to let that stop them from embracing life the best way they know how. And so it is in the masterfully made "The [...]

Movie review: Film shows civil rights titan... Contrary to what you might think, "Marshall," from director Reginald Hudlin, isn’t a full-on biography about Thurgood Marshall, the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. Instead, Hudlin ("Boomerang"), working from a script by father-and-son scribes Jacob and Michael Koskoff, narrows the focus to show one of Marshall’s career-defining cases – and it’s a doozy. Salacious, even by today’s standards, with its triple whammy of sex, violence and race. What [...]

Music: Peter Wolf belts out the blues, rock in... Long before Peter Wolf embarked on a solo career, singing with his current band the Midnight Travelers; well before he gyrated and growled and spouted out epic blasts of seemingly off-the-cuff rhymes – while showing off his prowess for rock and blues – as the front man for the J. Geils Band; before he was singing soul numbers with Boston Tea Party regulars the Hallucinations, Wolf was a painter. Oh, there was music in his life from a very young age. His [...]
