Movie Review: ‘A Little Chaos’

(2½ stars out of 4)Kate Winslet, who has established herself as one of our most dependable and accomplished screen actresses with six Oscar nominations and one Oscar, is so effortlessly commanding and authentic from her first moment on.

Movie Review: ‘The Butler’

This is a soundly made film, downright old-fashioned in its narrative confidence and technical simplicity, unerring in its period detail and behavior.
