Clip from ‘New In Town’

posted by Nell Minow

I’m thrilled to be hosting the Washington DC-area screening for New in Town, a new romantic comedy with Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick, Jr.
Here’s a clip showing Zellweger getting some comforting advice from Siobhan Fallon Hogan.

    Congrats on getting to host the DC screening!! How exciting that will be. Thanks for posting that neat clip, too.
    “New In Town” looks like it is going to be such a fun movie. Harry Connick, Jr. is my favorite guy in the whole wide world and Renee Zellweger is a wonderful actress ~ I simply can’t wait until the release!

    Thank you, Heather! I am a huge Harry Connick, Jr. fan, too, and am very excited about the movie!

    Always thought Connick, Jr. would be a big movie star … and I bet he would have had he been born 50 years ago. Good looking, can sing, can act … a comfortable on screen presence.
    Yet his career really hasn’t clicked on the big screen.

    You are so right, Christian! He can do comedy and drama; he can even be creepy (“Copycat”). I loved him as Leo on “Will and Grace.” I really hope this movie shows Hollywood that he has true star quality.

Movies' Greatest Mirror Scenes

How Do Movies Show Time Passing?
Someone once said that movies are "pieces of time." A few take place in "real time." Alfred Hitchcock's experiment, "Rope," unfolds in just the time it takes us to watch it, all in what appears to be one seamless shot. But others take place over days, weeks, years, even generations. Slavko Vorkap

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)
