In an era when women were allowed to be ornaments, mothers or drudges, young Marie Sklodowska of Poland dreamed of something more. She defied convention to study physics and mathematics at the Sorbonne and – with Pierre Curie, the professor who became her husband – to make one of the greatest breakthroughs in 20th-century science. Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon reunite after their Mrs. Miniver triumph to portray the courageous couple who won the 1903 Nobel Prize for their discovery of radium. This stirring biopic captures the challenge of research, the triumph of achievement and the profound bond of love they shared. Madame Curie is "a lasting inspiration [that] makes the quest for knowledge aromantic and thrilling pursuit" (Bosley Crowther).

Based on Savannah Knoop's memoir Girl Boy Girl: How I Became JT Leroy, this captivating true story goes beyond the headlines to tell the story of the most compelling literary 'hoax' of recent times. Laura Albert (Laura Dern) writes as her "avatar," a disenfranchised young queer man named JT LeRoy. When her debut novel becomes a best-seller and JT becomes the darling of the literary world, she comes up with a unique solution to preserve her anonymity but give life to her nom-de-plume. Enter her boyfriend's androgynous fun-loving sister Savannah Knoop (Kristen Stewart), who connects with Laura's punk, feminist, outsider universe and agrees to be JT in the public eye. Together, they embark on a wild ride of double lives, infiltrating the Hollywood and literary elite, only to discover who they are while pretending to be someone else.

Josanin the Heartless just wanted to conquer the world, not save it. Josanin has been an ambitious schemer all his life—a calculating wizard who has matched wits with countless heroes over the years. Dwarves, humans, halflings and elfin folk have all borne the brunt of Josanin's desire for power. But an accidental discovery reveals that the Free Folk are the least of his worries. A terrifying legend out of antiquity, Alimnazer the Hearteater, is real and about to unleash total annihilation on the world. Much to his consternation, Josanin must play the hero for a change. Josanin may be the chosen one, but he can't stop an evil of such magnitude alone. To succeed, he'll need the help of his most resilient foes, the fire paladin Prince Wilelm, his equally fiery wife, Princess Ambre, and all the champions with whom they've surrounded themselves. Unfortunately for him, these battle-tested heroes will never believe a word their old enemy Josanin says, much less volunteer to help. Against such impossible odds, only a truly heartless manipulator like Josanin has the evil cunning to bend the champions to his will and set up a final battle that gives the world a sliver of hope against a would-be god.

Véronique Leroy Resort 2016

Véronique Leroy made it clear that her resort collection was about real clothes, not fashion in any grand directional sense. She concentrated on fabrics she loves: cotton poplin, seersucker, silk crepe and knits. Shapes were based on a geometric square patterns, alluring and feminine on elongated, loose silhouettes. She morphed trenches into short jackets in an offbeat shade of salmon seersucker and used ribbed knits accents — suspenders, waistbands and collars — to inject a graphic contrast to voluminous silk-crepe styles.
