"It was fun to be platinum. I think we forget, because so many
photographs are in black and white, that women were very ris-

Sometimes I write about films way in advance. In the case of Ira Sachs's Married Life, I posted something in January as that's when the Seattle press screening took place. Also, I wanted to compare and contrast Sachs's period piece with Bela Tarr's Prefab People, which was playing around the same time. Click here for the full review.

Coming soon: An interview with writer/director David Gordon Green, whose Snow
Angels
opens today at the Harvard Exit, and Douglas Gordon & Philippe Parreno's Zidane, A 21st Century Portrait, which opens at the Northwest Film Forum on 4/4. McAdams image from Canmag, Kate Beckinsale (Snow Angels) from Allocine.com.
