Frank, Wolfie & the Gang Return to Celebrate 20 Years of Stages

Posted on 23 October 2014

For 20 years, Helene Leonard has offered the children of the East End the chance to find their voice onstage. I know, because 20 years ago I was a kid who stumbled into her workshop, and she gave me the confidence to step into the spotlight.

Keanu Reeves Talks About Playing “John Wick”

Posted on 23 October 2014

An action-revenge thriller with a high body count, John Wick opens theatrically this Friday, and the advance word is good.

Payman Maadi on the Small but Powerful Camp X-Ray

Posted on 16 October 2014

Camp X-Ray fits my category “Movies That Should Play in Sag Harbor.” This Friday Peter Sattler’s beautifully acted, troubling, touching, and important debut feature–which makes it clear why America must close Guantanamo–opens theatrically in New York City and on VOD. The synopsis in the press notes: “A young woman (Kristen Stewart, giving her most mature performance, excels as Amy Cole) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots, but ends up as a rookie guard at Guantanamo Bay. Her mission is far from black and white, as she is surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive male squad mates. When she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (Iranian actor Payman Maadi, who follows the Oscar-winning A Separation with another extraordinary performance), both of their worlds are forever shifted.
