New Woman

Jonathan Rhys Meyers New Woman, December 2007 He’s not handy round the house, but the Irish actor sure gives good shoe When you first start seeing someone it’s a fantastic adventure. You can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. For a while anyway. But it only becomes a real relationship when you see one another’s flaws and love each other regardless. I miss having a girlfriend but I haven’t got time to do much about it. All I do right now is work, so I’ve been single...

August Rush

Lilting ‘August Rush’ is poetry in emotion By Claudia Puig USA TODAY, November 23, 2007 August Rush (* * * out of four) will not be for everyone, but it works if you surrender to its lilting and unabashedly sentimental tale of evocative music and visual poetry. If you choose to focus on the plot’s many contrivances, the film falters. But thanks to some wonderfully appealing and emotional performances by Freddie Highmore, Keri Russell, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Terrence Howard, this urban fairy tale/drama weaves a captivating spell.

We meet Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore), an 11-year-old who runs away from his...
