WOMAN IN GOLD is the remarkable true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family.
Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s famous painting ‘Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I’. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.

Roman Polanski: ‘Odd Man Out’ Trailer

Following the success of ROMAN POLANSKI: WANTED AND DESIRED, director Marina Zenovich planned to make a short film about how that film reopened the case.
She was scheduled to interview Polanski in November of 2009 after he completed THE GHOSTWRITER. Polanski was arrested unexpectedly in September of 2009.

ROMAN POLANSKI: ODD MAN OUT explores the motivations behind Polanski’s 2009 arrest and his 10 month house arrest in Switzerland.
In 2009, celebrated director Roman Polanski was arrested at the Zurich Film Festival. His weekend jaunt turned into a 10 month imprisonment. A follow up to the Emmy award winning “Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired” — which some say was one of the reasons for his arrest —- explores the bizarre clash of politics, celebrity justice and the media.

“Gangster Squad” Review by Kirk Honeycutt

“Gangster Squad” is a western masquerading as a gangster movie. It takes place in the Wild West — a virtually lawless 1949 Los Angeles — and some very bad dudes hold the town hostage.
All the law can do is round up a bunch of good guys willing to be as bad as the bad guys and then run ‘em out of town.
As these things go, this Warner Bros. production has an unusually starry cast and striking look with vintage cars and glistening period effects that pop off the screen.

Chris Brown not charged in cell phone stealing case

HollywoodNews.com: Chris Brown is breathing a sigh of relief as he is off the hook in a case where he was accused of stealing a cell phone from female in Miami when she was spotted taking a picture.
However, as the case was investigated, it was determined that no criminal activity took place, states TMZ. Brown’s girlfriend at the time, Karrueche Tran, commented during the investigation that the woman put the phone in their car and struck her on the head.
Brown allegedly later tossed the phone out of the car as it didn’t belong to them. Prosecutors reportedly determined that this was possible in the case.
