In what will hopefully be a blissful mawage, Disney has announced plans to work with William Goldman on a theatrical production based on both his book “The Princess Bride” and on his screenplay for Rob Reiner’s 1987 classic film.
In less than 48 hours, I visited Mount Everest, on the border between Nepal and Tibet, and Beaufort Castle in southern Lebanon. The unlikely juxtaposition was the result of attending screenings of quite different films: the flashy Hollywood premiere of "The Bucket List," followed by an understated private screening of indie Israeli film, "Beaufort."
"Match Point" marks a notable departure for Woody Allen, and not just because its story is set and was shot in England. Reminiscent in theme of "Crimes and Misdemeanors," though without the humor, there's a new tone to this film. Enough so that anybody entering the theater not knowing who made this picture would be hard pressed to guess it was Allen.
