Mister D: Can somebody from Down Under take the time and tell us who these stars are and what they’re famous for? You can use the message board here or the Facebook Comments on FB.

Some of Australia’s biggest stars have revealed which films changed their lives and some of their answers are very surprising (we’re looking at you, Waleed Aly).


IS there a movie that had such a profound effect on you you’d say it changed your life?

That’s what we asked some of Australia’s biggest stars, including Lisa Wilkinson, Waleed Aly, and Vince Colosimo.

LISA WILKINSON

Movie: Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner — 1967

It was set at the height of the 1960s civil rights movement in the US, so I came to it late, but it has everything: truly magnificent acting from Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy and Sidney Poitier, a stunning setting, searing writing with beautiful comedic moments, and the most perfect final speech in any movie I’ve ever seen. It still brings me to tears every time I see it. Read More

CARPE LIBRUM: Taking on the best beach reads this season, Including “Beaches II”

Encore
CARPE LIBRUM: Taking on the best beach reads this season
By GWENYFAR ROHLER
JUL 17

Welcome to Carpe Librum, encore’s biweekly book column, wherein I will dissect a current title and even old books—because literature does not exist in a vacuum but emerges to participate in a larger, cultural conversation.

“Footloose” by Kenny Loggins (“Footloose”)
The movie musical quickly became one of the biggest hits when it was released in 1984, in no small part thanks to Loggins’ now-iconic song. It’s impossible not to dance when you hear it, which is probably why the song topped the charts for three weeks in a row on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming such a massive hit that Loggins himself was blown away by its success.

They say what’s old is new again, but in this case, it’s also retooled, reimagined and racing with eyes toward Broadway — times two.

Iris Rainer Dart, author of “Beaches,” is hoping to bring a theatrical version of the novel to Broadway. She also has a Tony Award-nominated production, 2011’s “The People in the Picture,” now making its West Coast premiere in hopes of returning to the Great White Way. Read More
