  • Review: 'Waitress' serves up a tasty treat at Broward Center

    Review: 'Waitress' serves up a tasty treat at Broward Center

    “Waitress” is a smallish story with some big themes — breaking free and rebuilding a life. The production, now playing the Broward Center for the Performing Arts for a two-week run, admirably resists the urge to underscore all of that with a Broadway-ma-tized retelling of the hit 2007 indie film...

    She's a female Indiana Jones: Mireya Mayor explores rain forests with pink boots and machetes

    Mireya Mayor drank cow blood in Tanzania, swam with aggressive sharks in Mexico and faced a 400-pound silverback gorilla in the Congo.

    'The Endless' review: Brothers revisit their childhood cult in search for meaning

    Some directors need $100 million to make a movie, while others are more resourceful than MacGyver: Give them a camera, a location and the cost of one year's tuition at an Ivy League school, and they can make magic. Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson are just such wizards of ingenuity, to the extent...

    'A Bag of Marbles' review: Children escape Nazis in war-torn France

    There's scarcely a scene in "A Bag of Marbles" that you haven't seen already — but those scenes have worked on most of us before, and if you can put up with the Nutella-thick styling of Christian Duguay's child's-eye Holocaust drama, they'll probably do so again. Based on Joseph Joffo's bestselling...

  • 'Souvenir' review: Isabelle Huppert's chanteuse aims for a comeback

    'Souvenir' review: Isabelle Huppert's chanteuse aims for a comeback

    Isabelle Huppert as a has-been chanteuse is all a film fan should need to stoke the wanna-see factor for "Souvenir," and it probably doesn't hurt that there's a May-December romance as an extra incentive for devotees of the magnetic French superstar. But promise is all one's left with after Belgian...

  • 'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

    'I Feel Pretty' review: Amy Schumer's fable about fat-shaming is frankly depressing

    In a 2015 sketch aired on Comedy Central’s “Inside Amy Schumer,” the one called “New Body,” Schumer played a woman shopping for a wardrobe for the body she’s always wanted. The clothing store clerk, thin and deadpan, is the perfect foil for Schumer’s chipper, play-along reactions. With those two...
