Old age is usually seen as a sad time to reflect on your life's work and morn you past friends. For Carol (Blythe Danner), an elderly widow, this is the case. That is, until her friends force her back into the dating game. She is beginning to realise that her day to day life is becoming monotonous, yet she soon enough meets Bill (Sam Elliot). A retiree himself, Bill reminds her that even at the supposed twilight years of your life, there is still a chance to begin all over again.

Blythe Danner admits to be confused by her daughter's term for divorce but praises the way they've handled it
Gwyneth Paltrow and her ex-husband, Chris Martin, got the world talking when they decided to 'consciously uncouple' last year and not just because the Hollywood and musical dream team had divorced but because of the strange term that had chosen to call it.
Gwyneth Paltrow confused a lot of people with her 'conscious uncoupling'
And it seems that it wasn't only the world that raised an eyebrow in confusion at the phrase with Gwyneth's famous mother, Blythe Danner, recently revealing that she wasn't sure what to make of the term either.
Oscar and Grammy winner Barbra Streisand is honoured at the 40th Anniversary Chaplin Award Gala at Avery Fisher Hall at the Lincoln Center, New York.

Henry (Brody) takes a month-long assignment teaching at a tough school run by beleaguered principal Carol (Harden). Unflappable in the face of the unruly students, he calmly tries to get through to the teens. He clicks with fellow teacher Sarah (Hendricks). As a substitute, Henry's job is to maintain order, which seems like an impossible challenge.

After three tours of duty, shellshocked Marine Logan (Efron) heads home with no plan for the future.

Without telling her how he knows her, he takes a job and reluctantly falls for her while charming her smart son (Stewart) and sassy granny (Danner).

The catchy pop ballads found on the soundtrack for Tony Goldwyn's The Last Kiss will break your heart in two. The movie these songs support only wishes it could make such a claim.
Back to the music for a minute. Coldplay, Cary Brothers, Fiona Apple, Snow Patrol, and a smattering of other fashionable artists - each handpicked by leading man Zach Braff - croon (and sometimes whine) about infidelity, loss, and life-changing mistakes that target the love of your life. Sample lyrics include, "She's moving on... without you." Sentiments rarely deviate from this norm. It's a nice place to wallow on a rainy afternoon.
Braff worked similar musical magic for his directorial debut Garden State. His ear for stirring, soulful melodies earned him a Best Compilation Soundtrack for a Motion Picture Grammy award. But where Braff's Garden mix tape enhanced his quirky and personal little comedy, this new song collection can't lift Goldwyn's somber material from the doldrums.

The story of a young girl who, after being changed into an elderly woman by an evil witch, joins forces with a petulant playboy wizard against a nefarious sorcerer, Howl's is akin to a cluttered, cacophonous childhood dream come to life. However, as with dreams, Miyazaki's film is also far-too-often a bewildering jumble of intriguing ideas and ingenious images that never fully coalesce into a moving or compelling whole.

It all reminds me, with flashback-like intensity, of meeting my own father-in-law-to-be, a guy so stern he makes De Niro look like Jim Carrey. Picture Ben Stiller as Focker (or me) and De Niro as himself, and, like magic, you've got yourself one hell of a comedy that will see few equals this year or any other. (Note to Dr. Carder: This is just a joke that I know you'll laugh about because we have such a great relationship! See you this Christmas!!!)
