FAMILY COMES first at Remnant Ministries, the Las Vegas church where former Eagles quarterback Randall Cunningham serves as pastor. "The family unit is the most important unit in the universe," the church's Web site states. "Healthy families are the closest thing to heaven on earth. " Cunningham's universe was shattered late Tuesday afternoon when his youngest son accidentally drowned in the family's back-yard hot tub - the same tub in which Cunningham, an ordained minister, reportedly performs baptisms.

James White opens with its title character's drifting restlessly through a club, his ear buds pulsing music, sweat on his brow. The camera, as insistent as a gnat, tracks the bearded twentysomething as he downs drinks and moves around the dark, throbbing bar, maybe in the company of a woman (maybe not - they're not talking), and finally emerging on the New York street. It's daylight. And this stark study in self-destruction is underway. An accomplished and compelling film by writer/director Josh Mond, James White is also pretty much a bummer.

One night, in Larry and Nina's room, a mural grew. A joyful procession - a dog, two boys, two birds, a lion, a girl, a bear, and a sun - was being painted by a dear family friend, who spread paper and paint jars on the floor and sometimes stood on their beds to work. It was 1961, and the family friend - Uncle Moo Moo - was Maurice Sendak, 33. Fifty years later, the mural - in two hefty slabs - has made its way from the 13th-floor apartment overlooking Manhattan's Central Park to a new home: the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Center City, which houses Sendak's papers, books, art, and ephemera.
