A Belgian drama with bluegrass music may seem like an unlikely combo, but director Felix van Groeningen pulls it off spectacularly in his heart-wrenching new film “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is already garnering whispers of Academy Award recognition. While other foreign-language Oscar hopefuls such as “Wadjda” and “The Hunt” have come and gone from theaters (with others such as “Gloria” and “The Past” not making their way to Phoenix until early 2014), “Broken Circle” is arriving this month, opening at Harkins Camelview 5 in Scottsdale this Friday, Dec. 6.

Like many of its ilk, the purpose of the Filmstock Film Festival is to showcase the talents of independent artists to a broader audience. What makes Filmstock different, however, is that all the films shown during the three-day event are shorts produced in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico or Utah — the Four Corners states.
NEW YORK — He's the toddler who always bites. She's the 6-year-old drama queen prone to "it's mine" fits and hair-pulling. The problem, for you anyway, is they belong to your best friend, your neighbor or your exceedingly lenient big sister.
Ask any good chef: why do some recipes work, while others, with the very same ingredients, do not? Ah, but it's the QUALITY of the ingredients that matters, that chef will probably say.
A child is born, a family is healed, and a sermon on forgiveness is delivered with sledgehammer subtlety in "Black Nativity," a bold but clumsy attempt to bring Langston Hughes' popular musical to life onscreen.
What’s not to love about “Downton Abbey” on PBS? There’s drama, romance, intrigue and a steady stream of clothes to-die-for.
Ever since it took home the coveted Palme d’Or at Cannes (the festival’s top honor) in May, “Blue is the Warmest Color” has been heating up the conversation among film critics and aficionados alike.
Rarely has a story about an angelic schoolgirl been narrated by Death. But such is the case in the dark, yet wondrous Nazi Germany-set "The Book Thief." ''Here's a small fact: You are going to die," we're told via voiceover by the Grim Reaper as we meet our young heroine, Liesel Meminger, played exquisitely by 13-year-old French-Canadian newcomer Sophie Nelisse.
Wakeup calls come in all shapes and sizes this time of year. For No.6-seeded Pinnacle, it came in the form of a 12-second deficit.
With football taking such a predominant portion of the stage, it’s worth noting the girls volleyball state tournament got underway on Tuesday night — not to mention cross country and swimming/diving state championships are coming up this weekend — and just because there’s been an unfortunate lack of ink, doesn’t mean the tournaments are going to lack talent, excitement or drama.
It's not unusual for your average 77-year-old man to lose some hearing in one ear.
After plenty of haggling, and a fair amount of political theater, Congress reached a last-minute agreement to raise the debt ceiling and end the partial government shutdown. Most people would agree that a fully functioning government that can pay its bills on time is a positive thing — and it’s certainly good news for investors, because a default on the part of the U.S. government could have had serious repercussions in the financial markets. But what’s next?
Long before the 20-second sound bite was even a gleam in CNN founder Ted Turner’s eye, Cliff Hillegass began serving the needs of the impatient, the overwhelmed, the confused, or just in a hurry among us all.
No. 6 Pinnacle at No. 3 Hamilton: This is shaping up to be this week’s honest-to-goodness toss up. Of course, that was Red Mountain vs. Highland in the first round and it turned out to be anything but a pick ‘em. Still, there’s no doubt Pinnacle can play with the Huskies, they did so in early September (and it can be argued Pinnacle should have won at Hamilton on Sept. 12). Hamilton believes it’s recent return to health and growth on offense is tangible. Pinnacle believes QB Brian Lewerke is playing significantly better than he was two months ago (Huskies coach Steve Belles raved about him back then and again this week). If Hamilton can control the ball and clock with its running game - and score touchdowns - the Huskies can keep Pinnacle’s offense off the field, which is the best bet because Cules Rose and Daniel Galindo (pictured) are big-play threats at WR as the Pioneers can score quickly. The Pioneers are capable of negating Hamilton’s offense. Expect a few tweaks, but no massive transformations from the first time around. In other words, expect something similar to the first game’s drama.
Prediction: Hamilton 24, Pinnacle 21
Ripped from headlines that still feel wet, "The Fifth Estate" dramatizes the fast, controversial rise of anonymous-whistleblower website WikiLeaks and its figurehead, Julian Assange.
"You will know her name," scream the posters for the new big-screen version of "Carrie," as if anyone could forget it after seeing Brian De Palma's brilliant 1976 movie or reading the original Stephen King novel.

PHOENIX — The superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park said Thursday it will not reopen during the government shutdown, even if others come up with the operating cash.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
Maybe, just maybe, Ron Howard and screenwriter Peter Morgan are perfect opposites: one a swinging playboy, the other a cold calculator.
There’s a new place to catch live comedies and dramas in Mesa, and it’s backed by the city’s oldest community theatre company.
