So, Cranky is 16. Like most 16-year-old girls, she is focused on a few priorities: clothes, boys, texts, One Direction and homework—if the last item is not on that list, please don't shatter my belief system. So it comes as no surprise that when a diet miracle appears on social media, Cranky would be quick to jump on it.
This film is based on a true story and marks the directorial debut of funnyman and The Daily Show host Jon Stewart. The reasons for Stewart's career shift seem apparent when it becomes clear that an appearance by Maziar Bahari, the subject of the film, on Stewart's late night talk show may have unwittingly triggered the events that followed. The story seems to be as much a tribute to Bahari's triumph of spirit as a mea culpa from Stewart.

I'll give you the bad news first. The big movie opening last week was Dumb and Dumber To. A sequel that in 1994 then A-lister Jim Carrey scoffed at as preposterous. Who needs $10 million for a crap movie when people are beating down your door with offers? I guess when it's that or a reality show, the choice is a bit more tempting. The good news: a lot of terrific options were released this week as well. Perhaps studios sensed people steering clear of the cineplex. Who knows.
Story: An original, found-text performance created entirely from postings on the website Craigslist, which runs posts varying from classified ads for buying or selling merchandise to lonely hearts entreaties and sometimes graphic sexual notes.
Story: Five months after the outbreak of World War I, a number of British, French and German troops positioned in trenches alongside “no man’s land” in Europe stopped their fighting for a brief but poignant period on Christmas Eve, 1914. Tentative and leery at first, they slowly emerged from their rat-infested trenches to extend holiday greetings to each other. They sang songs, exchanged simple gifts and even participated in an impromptu soccer game on the frozen terrain.
