If you are of a certain age, which I am, then director Paolo Virzi's "The Leisure Seeker" is certain to resonate anywhere from sentimentally positive to depressingly negative, depending of course on how you view the last few chapters of the life experience. It is not an easy subject, especially in these overindulged times when even the closing of a favorite restaurant is reason enough for extended mourning.    Shrouded in mystery, hope, despair and every other word the poets have employed to describe the inevitable, it is, along with love, the ultimate inscrutability.   We don't even like to say it: Old Age. There, I did it. Yet the realization that it is

STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Donna Hassler, executive director of Chesterwood and administrator of the Historic Artists' Home and Studios (HAHS) Program, has been awarded a National Trust for Historic Preservation Affiliated Fellowship of the American Academy in Rome during the month of April.

While at the Academy, Hassler, an art historian and authority on American sculpture, will retrace the steps of distinguished 20th-century public sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850-1931) in Italy when he was a young student, as well as subsequent trips there later in his career. French, who was a founding board member of the Academy, maintained diaries of his European travels, now in the

While director Greg Berlanti's "Love, Simon" is at once funny, serious and important, it's a darn shame that it is so very apt ... that this astute tale about a teenage boy's struggle to make his gayness known is revolutionary at all. Memo of inquiry to American civilization: It's the spring of 2018, and this fact of life is just making the mainstream? Well, better late than never.    Truth is, attitudinal changes come slowly, especially to the narrow-minded. But the seed of tolerant reformation, boosted during the enlightenment of the '60s, has finally gained pragmatic traction. Today's kids, who have of late heroically evidenced that they'll

'A Wrinkle in Time': Folds, Spindles and Doesn't Exhilarate   2 popcorns By Michael S. Goldberger film critic   I expected more from director Ava DuVernay's "A Wrinkle in Time," an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's 1962, adventure-fantasy novel.    The book has been touted by a couple generations of youngsters, including my own moppet, Erin, who in retrospect adds that the freaky ideas were also a bit terrifying to a 9-year-old who hadn't to date "given that acid trip-type stuff much thought." Well, that's gratifying. But in any case, I saw my critiquing mission as a sort of command performance and wanted to bring news

'Death Wish': What this World Doesn't Need Now

"Death Wish," essentially a reboot of its 1974 namesake starring Charles Bronson, is problematic at best. For gosh sakes, there's tons of fear, loathing and guns -- the deadly sum of which the world doesn't need, especially at this incendiary and anguishing juncture in our history.    But you can't blame MGM or director Eli Roth for the untimely release of this heir apparent to what became the standard of vigilante ethos. Considering the ceaseless conveyor belt of mass shootings bloodying our landscape, there is never a good time.   You watch and wince. The casual mention of an AR-15 when Bruce Willis' Dr. Paul Kersey makes inquiries at a gun shop

As the film critiquing tumblers in my brain jumbled about during a viewing of Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther," one heck of an astute action-drama courtesy of Marvel Studios, I contemplated the complexities regarding one's point of view. Granted, this white, would-be silk stocking liberal was gratified by the racial and political wish fulfillment represented by the semi-secret, technologically advanced African kingdom of Wakanda where T'Challa, aka Black Panther, has just been elevated to the throne. But what remains of the kid in me took it a bit further.   I thought about heroes and what they meant to us in that portion of growing up that reveled in playing make
