    The Kids are All Right

    Lesbianism is hardly the point.

    "Marriage is hard." Jules in The Kids are All Right

    Lesbians don't dominate in the love that owns The Kids are All Right. By that I mean if you want hard-core lesbian love, then go to the back of your video store because this film is about the challenges of marriage and family life. It's not Medea; rather it's the best family romady I've seen since Little Miss Sunshine, and not even as funny.

    Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky

    Not as hot as expected with two icons

    If you think Audrey Tautou's Coco in Coco before Chanel is a restrained performance, Anna Mouglalis' Coco in Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky will seem downright glacial. But not cold in a romantic sense, just careful and controlled as you might expect from the iconic head of a fashion house and perfume.

    The Girl Who Played with Fire

    Family unfriendly

    If you want to see another dysfunctional family film without the usual zany humor, then see The Girl Who Played with Fire, the fiery sequel to the acclaimed Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and second in the three adaptations of the Swedish novel trilogy by Stieg Larsson. The family history of computer researcher Lisbeth (Noomi Rapace) lies under the thriller like an old rug reluctantly to be replaced because it has so much history.

    Inception

    Imaginative espionage

    "You're asking me for Inception. I hope you do understand the gravity of that request." Cobb


    Grave it is: Inception is a dream within a dream and maybe more layers than that as Memento's Christopher Nolan plays this time not just with time but with the confluence of appearance and reality in a Freudian world of dream manipulation and regret. Is it also about the movie-watching experience? Of course.

    No easy answers for next budget shortfall

    Columbus, OH – A special panel of Ohio legislators is trying to grapple with the projected $4 billion to $8 billion hole in the next state budget. The commission held its second meeting this week and heard about what their counterparts in other states have been doing to fill their money shortfalls. As statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports, that information wasn't particularly re-assuring to the Ohio lawmakers.
