Here’s How ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Addresses Social Issues That Matter

34 minutes ago

“Grey’s Anatomy” has a way of pulling at our heartstrings, but it also has a way of keeping its pulse on hot-button issues like gay marriage and gun control, not mention the way feminism and civil rights are engrained in nearly every story. The show uses its specific brand of tear-jerking to address these issues without putting itself of a soap box. Who didn’t cry along with Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) when hospital shooter Gary shot intern Charles Percy (Robert Baker)? And who didn’t shed a few happy tears at the site of Callie and Arizona, both in white wedding. »

‘Roman J. Israel, Esq’ Film Review: Denzel Washington’s Lawyer Doesn’t Quite Close the Case

4 hours ago

Usually a film’s title offers at least a clue as to what it’s about. Not so with “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” Even the ads show only the back of Denzel Washington’s head with a fuzzy Afro. That’s the first tipoff that writer-director Dan Gilroy (“Nightcrawler”) may be more concerned with character than story. Fortunately, as a civil rights attorney mired in the activism of the ’60s and ’70s, Washington’s performance as Israel is quirky and charming enough to almost pull it off. It’s not just the hair, dorky oversized glasses, gapped teeth, and rumpled »
