Review: It’s Complicated

It’s Complicated, written and directed by Nancy Meyers (2009), starring Meryl Streep, viewed at the Wilton Town Hall Theatre on January 15, 2010.

Review: Summer Hours

Summer Hours, directed by Olivier Assayas (2009, in French, with English subtitles), viewed at the Wilton Town Hall Theatre on July 10, 2009.
