  • Jolie: New film should make people uncomfortable 


     Angelina Jolie said Monday she hopes her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will provoke a wider discussion about rape — something that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor said could be extremely valuable in helping bring perpetrators to justice.
    Jolie, who received a Cinema for Peace award for her film and the group’s “honorary award for opposing war and genocide” for the movie focusing on the war in Bosnia late Monday, said she wants viewers to be “uncomfortable” when they see the film.

  • Triumph, tragedy dominate Grammy Awards 


    The splintered music world truly coalesces only one night of 365 for the Grammy Awards, and this year was united in the triumph of recovered British soul singer Adele’s trophy haul and the tragedy of Whitney Houston’s death.
    Adele swept the major honors of song, record and album of the year Sunday for her lost-love epic “21” and its driving single “Rolling in the Deep.” She picked up her final two awards after making her first public performance in months after being sidelined for throat surgery. Her total of six Grammys matched Beyonce for most ever by a female act.

  • Two more autism-friendly shows planned

    NEW YORK (AP) — Two more autism-friendly performances of Broadway musicals will be offered this spring and fall following the success last year of the first showing of a Broadway show specially altered for those diagnosed with the disorder.
    The Theatre Development Fund, a nonprofit organization focused on providing access to live theater, said Tuesday it plans to offer specially designed matinee showings of “Mary Poppins” on April 29 and “The Lion King” on Sept. 30.
    The move comes after the Fund got enthusiastic feedback from grateful families when it launched a pilot effort in October with an autism-friendly showing of “The Lion King.”

  • Verizon and Redbox team up

    NEW YORK (AP) — Phone company Verizon Communications Inc. will challenge Netflix and start a video streaming service this year with Redbox and its DVD rental kiosks.
    Verizon and Coinstar Inc., Redbox’s parent company, said Monday that the service will be national and available to non-Verizon customers as well. It adds another dimension to Verizon’s quest to become a force in home entertainment, and it looks set to compete to some extent with the cable-TV services it already sells.
    Unlike competing services from Amazon.com Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the new service will combine Internet delivery of movies with DVDs, the way Netflix does. Dish Network Corp. also offers a similar bundle through its Blockbuster subsidiary.
