Movie Diary 6/28/2011

Sarah’s Key (Gilles Paquet-Brenner, 2010). Genuinely old-fashioned story with roots in the Holocaust. Kristin Scott Thomas is the star, effortlessly. (full review 7/29)

Larry Crowne (Tom Hanks, 2011). Middle-aged life changes, with director Hanks being very casual about the whole thing. He does let loose some of that crazy-ass energy Julia Roberts generally saves for talk-show appearances. (full review 7/1)

At What a Feeling!, the much-beloved pairing of Tom Selleck and Paulina Porizkova is recalled, with a review of Her Alibi.
