Another Year

Strong acting and little story transform Mike Leigh’s film into a poignant slice of life.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
Nothing much happens in Mike Leigh films, at least not in the strictest sense of Plot Mechanics 101. There are no car chases or explosions, not even a juicy epiphany in the final reel.

What’s up? Docs

You’re in for a mostly gripping marathon of global challenges with this year’s Oscar nominees for documentary shorts.


Features

Rod Lott
Some suggestions before 7:30 p.m. Thursday, when the Oklahoma City Museum of Art screens this year’s five Oscar-nominated documentary short films, each roughly 40 minutes in length. Visit the restroom first. Get comfy. Have some Kleenex handy. And perhaps a handful of St. John’s wort.

Munn ho!: Fifth in a series

Even non-newsworthy weeks are newsworthy


CFN

Gazette staff
’Twas a quiet week on the Internet for former Oklahoman turned actress/ model/geek icon Olivia Munn. But at least the holiday gave her the chance to share her ideal Valentine’s Day with OpposingViews.
