LOS ANGELES - Nine women were honored at the annual Women in Hollywood event, yet two in particular stole the show. Viola Davis surprised her fellow honorees and an audience of Hollywood insiders Monday night by announcing she had adopted a baby girl. And Barbra Streisand was repeatedly credited by fellow honorees such as Michelle Pfeiffer, Evan Rachel Wood, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, and Davis with being the inspiration for their success. It was a lovefest that continued through the evening at the 18th annual celebration of the industry's leading ladies sponsored by Elle magazine at the Four Seasons Hotel.

What a fabulous idea, to transpose Tess of the D'Urbervilles - Thomas Hardy's tale of manners and morals in 19th-century England - to modern-day India. The trip from Hardy's fictional Wessex to Rajasthan and Mumbai - where class mobility, tradition, and globalization clash with dizzying vividness - presents a tantalizing opportunity to infuse the classic with new verve, color, and relevance. In the case of Trishna, the enterprise is even more promising because it has been written and directed by Michael Winterbottom, one of the most protean and inventive filmmakers working today (and one who knows his way around Hardy, having adapted The Mayor of Casterbridge and Jude the Obscure )

Any film as politically specific as Miral needs to be addressed on two levels, as a movie and as, from a certain viewpoint, a polemic. If a viewer can separate one from the other - and some may not - there's an intense, novelistic drama here. In 1948 Palestine, following the implementing of the United Nations' two-state solution, social worker Hind Husseini (Hiam Abbass) takes in 55 Palestinian orphans displaced by military action. Almost by accident, she starts a girls' orphanage and school.

It doesn't happen often, but when it does, look out: a movie that rocks and rolls, that transports, startles, delights, shocks, seduces. A movie that is, quite simply, great. Slumdog Millionaire, the epic yarn of a Mumbai street urchin who grows up and goes on the Indian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - and then keeps getting the answers right, one stunner after another - is that movie. It's exhilarating. It's life-affirming. (Am I gushing enough?) It's about true love and destiny, about raging poverty and vast wealth, about the global powerhouse that is India in the 21st century.

Among the bleaker and more laughless of Woody Allen endeavors, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger begins with a narrator paraphrasing Macbeth : "Shakespeare said life is full of sound and fury, and in the end signified nothing. " And in the end, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger signifies pretty much nothing, too. Revisiting ideas and issues that Allen has kept in heavy rotation for decades - infidelity, death, art, the allure of youth - his 44th (44th!) film has been shot (pristinely, by Vilmos Zsigmond)

A photo of a battered Rihanna The Los Angeles Police Department is beside itself over a photo purportedly of Barbadian singer Rihanna apparently taken the night a complaint of domestic violence was lodged against rapper Chris Brown. The heartrending photo surfaced Thursday on TMZ.com. It shows a woman who appears to be Rihanna, her badly swollen face covered with welts and cuts. The picture appears to have been taken during an official investigation. If so, and if it was leaked by an LAPD member, consequences could be dire, including, the department says, "termination.

LOS ANGELES - Beneath a crystal chandelier, Dev Patel ponders budget car-buying. The 22-year-old actor, clad in a soft cotton V-neck T, relaxed jeans, and dirt-scuffed green sneakers, surveys two publicists, a photographer, and a photographer's assistant at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons. "How much do you pay for car insurance? How much do you pay?" Patel, who earned his driver's license in London last year, has cruised Los Angeles for months in a rented Toyota Corolla while costarring as blogger Neal Sampat in Aaron Sorkin's latest creation, The Newsroom , which ends its much-discussed first season on HBO on Sunday.

THE GUINNESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS has named Samuel L. Jackson the highest-grossing actor of all time. Since Jackson debuted in Spike Lee 's "Jungle Fever" in 1991, his 100 movies have made more than $7.4 billion. The Hollywood Reporter says "Jurassic Park" ($914 million), "Pulp Fiction" ($212 million) and the "Star Wars" prequels ($2.4 billion) were big contributors to the record. Tattle's box office guru David Bleiler says the record is a little misleading because Jackson wasn't the star of many of the films in question.

"Miral is a red flower. It grows on the side of the road. You've probably seen millions of them. " So reads a subtitle at the outset of director Julian Schnabel's "Miral," supposedly to announce that this story of a young woman, Miral, coming of age amid war and violence, is one that has occurred countless times before. But "Miral" gives no real evidence to support why this particular story deserves screen time. A film like "Miral," about a young Palestinian's view of Israeli-Palestinian relations, is going to be contentious for anyone with the least bit of feeling for either side of the conflict.
