Bad Words

Jason Bateman makes his directorial debut in the irreverent comedy Bad Words. Bateman also stars in the film, playing “Guy,”  a middle-aged eighth grade dropout. “Guy” enters a spelling bee as an adult by way of a technicality, seeking his redemption, and leaving a wake of foul-mouthed hilarity behind him. We don’t think Bateman’s ever been better!

We’re going to…

Degenerate Art

Thanks to the excellent and deeply moving pieces of this exhibit, visitors of the Neue Galerie not only see art as it was exhibited during the rise of Nazi Germany, but also experience the human toll  on the artists and curators of the period. This cultural clash of global proportions is written across gallery walls.

Bronfman Haggadah App

The handsome Bronfman Haggadah, a modern hardcover guide to the seder, now has an app that picks up where the book left off: animation, narration, singing, and a glossary of terms. You can download this 21st century Passover essential from the App Store here.

Everything is Perfect When You’re A Liar by Kelly Oxford

Fans of author Chelsea Handler’s novels need look no further for their next read. In her unapologetic anecdotal book, Kelly Oxford spares no details, from laugh out loud funny to cringe worthy embarrassment, and everything in between.
