Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

The Company Men, John Wells' intelligent, involving film about the effects of corporate layoffs on an executive, a middle manager, and a salesman at a Boston shipbuilding conglomerate, is about how each responds to being thrown overboard. Will they sink, or swim?
Director Peter Weir, maker of such films as The Year of Living Dangerously, Witness, and The Truman Show, is one of film's master landscape artists. With the possible exception of Terence Malick, no one surpasses him in conveying the lure and awe of place and its transforming effects on people.
