In my diary entry Earnest in Paris, guest blogger Miles Stephenson delved into the differences between the writing of Ernest Hemingway and film director Wes Anderson. One wonderful evening in Paris, Anderson appeared with one of his favorite muses, Tilda Swinton.. In The Architecture of Tango, I admit envy regarding Sally Potter and her films, This post presents The Tango Lesson, a sensuous exploration of the Argentine Tango with Pablo Veron.
In A Midcentury Cougar on the Prowl, Anne Bancroft is the femme fatale; and in Heaven Shall Be Here, Alan Rickman stars in his own directorial debut alongside Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts.

In How to Set a Mood, Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway play chess.
It’s the cast of the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival I celebrate in Celebrating Shakespeare.
