Morning, and the NPR announcer is filling in the details of the day ahead – new outbreaks of something called the Necroambulist Virus are down 30%. A young girl is stopped by police for missing curfew. Later we see a man, Wade Vogel, driving an old truck into town and visiting a quarantine area.

They, like le Carré know how to build the mundane to make that one percent that isn’t mundane harrowing.

02

An alcoholic English teacher faces off against a partially disabled artist in a challenge to discover which is more powerful – a piece of art, or a piece of prose or poetry. Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche play the agreeably disagreeable pair as they set out to win their students to their respective views.

In a World… Lake Bell Crashes Through The Glass Ceiling!

02

Lake Bell wrote, directed, produced and stars in In A World… – a very personal but completely accessible movie about a woman who faces the glass ceiling of the movie trailer narration biz while surviving as a vocal coach to actors like Eva Longoria. What makes her struggle more intense and funnier, is the fact that her father is the king of trailers.
