The challenge of any historical drama is to engage us so that we’re not passively observing a pageant of events but actively involved in the characters and their story. Screenwriter Julian Fellowes has drawn on many sources to create a witty, often gripping screenplay that tells a story many people may not know about the teenage girl who was crowned Queen of England in 1837—and how her life was often cruelly manipulated, both before and after...

The best part of being asked to serve on the jury for the AFI Awards is that I get to attend an elegant luncheon for the honorees. Once the doors of the Four Seasons Hotel banquet room close, there are no television cameras inside, no publicists, no press. It’s meant to be a celebration of outstanding work in film and television during the past year, and that’s just what it is. Part of the fun is the schmoozing—getting to meet people whose work I’ve admired—and a personal pastime of mine is...matching up interesting pairs of filmmakers for snapshots. Here are some of the results from today’s lunch.

A preview of the incredibly opulent Civic Theater in Auckland, New Zealand. More photos and videos to come! Please forgive my delay in grabbing hold of 2010. I've been on a long, and long-overdue, vacation to New Zealand and Australia, and I'll be sharing some of my movie-related experiences and pictures with you in the weeks to come. (Here's a teaser: a detail from an incredible movie palace I visited in Auckland.) I'm also learning to become a blogger, which is very different from maintaining a quiet website, which I've done for the last decade. Sometimes weeks would go by without an update, because I was...

At the outset of a "life celebration" for the late Roy E. Disney on what would have been his 80th birthday on Sunday, Disney chief Robert Iger surprised and delighted a packed house at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood by announcing that the studio's animation building in Burbank--the one with the whimsical Mickey Mouse Sorcerer's hat--will now bear Roy's name. A long, loud cheer went up from the crowd as an artist's rendering of the new building facade was beamed onto the theater screen. What a perfect tribute to the man who rescued Disney animation from possible extinction in the 1980s and oversaw its renaissance. John Lasseter also pointed out that it was Roy who was responsible for...
