Have you been reading all the features on whether New York is dead or not? I took a walk today and every street on the Upper East Side was bustling with outside dinners and a new bodega had opened in a location that was left empty when another bodega closed this past winter. A lot […]

It’s the Fourth of July holiday weekend but it doesn’t feel as celebratory this year especially since many people can’t travel or see their family. I’ve put together some things to get you through this weekend whether you will be spending it at home or the beach. My first trip post quarantine was to Sag […]

I wish movie studios would release all new films on demand as well as in theaters now so people have the option of staying home. I ventured downtown last weekend to see The Burnt Orange Heresy but after I saw a girl put lip gloss on her finger and they apply it to her lips […]

Someone online asked if we really needed another version of Jane Austen’s Emma but this one is the colorful, amusing, charming, and delicious version we didn’t know we needed. Time declared that it “strikes just the right balance of modern and authentic” and I have to agree. Since my first post on Emma last week, […]

The newest film version of the 1815 Jane Austen classic Emma hits theaters in the United States tonight. I’m very excited to see the movie based on all the beautiful images I’ve seen so far from director Autumn de Wilde’s adaptation of Emma. According to AD, “de Wilde explained to her production crew that the […]

This week was not as busy as last week due to snow and the ending of fashion week but I still managed to miss a few things. I’m hoping to catch up on some of them over the long holiday weekend. If put a few new stores and events happening around New York, Los Angeles, […]

Home Again

09 . 07 . 17

It’s fitting that the word “home” is in the title of Home Again since homes play a major part of the films by Nancy Meyers such as The Holiday, Something’s Gotta Give, and It’s Complicated. This time though she’s the producer and her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer is the writer and director. Home Again stars Reese Witherspoon […]

Valentine’s Day weekend seems like the perfect time to announce that a documentary about the venerable jewelry house Tiffany & Co. will be released on February 19th. Crazy About Tiffany’s was fully authorized by Tiffany & Co. and was written and directed by Matthew Miele who also made Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorfs who spent three years making […]

By the Sea

11 . 13 . 15

I’m not really a fan of Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt but I was intrigued enough by their new film to put aside my prejudices and see the film last night. By the Sea is set at a seaside hotel in the South of France in the 1970’s which is really what peeked my interest. […]

LA FRENCH

03 . 14 . 15

One of the great things about flying Air France, besides the delicious meals, is the selection of films. I was finally able to see Birdman and thoroughly enjoyed Reese Witherspoon in Wild but it was the French film, La French, the really impressed me. It stars Jean Dujardin as Pierre Michel, the magistrate of Marseille in the […]

Summer is the time of blockbuster movies but there are also a few small films that are making their way to a theatre near you.  One that looks very promising is The Hundred Foot Journey based on the novel The Hundred-Foot Journeyby Richard Morais and produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.  It centers on […]

Magic in the Moonlight

06 . 02 . 14

The one bad thing about living in Europe is that you feel a bit behind the times when it comes to films and television.  (Or at least until you figure out how to unblock Netflix in France.) I just saw the trailer for Woody Allen’s new film Magic in the Moonlight and I’m very jealous […]
