No matter that you're weeping buckets (and you will). Tears cannot tarnish the sterling performances in Marvin's Room, a sandwich-generation stressfest relieved by truly magical acting. Lee and Bessie are sisters. That they are played by Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton tells you something about a gene pool that can produce a hard-bitten beautician who shrugs off new burdens and the cuddly caregiver whose arms are always open. The two, who have avoided contact for 20 years, have been busy doing the responsibility juggle.

Stock flippers and ratholes: That was the dirty business of true-life Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort, says Gregory Coleman, the FBI special agent who ensnared the notorious criminal. The real story is even better than the movie. And, like every good story, it has lessons for us. Coleman was invited to tell the tale at the recent Economic Crimes Conference at the Philadelphia FBI offices by Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge John Brosnan, formerly of Coleman's old New York squad.

The 11th Hour . 1/2 Directed by Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. Distributed by Warner Independent Pictures. 1 hour, 31 mins. PG (some violence). Playing at Ritz East. Why Al Gore is a great movie star, Exhibit A: The 11th Hour. Even with no less celestial a presence than Leonardo DiCaprio producing and occasionally showing up on screen, this compendium of talking heads and (mostly) stock footage, sometimes oddly juxtaposed, feels like a lecture compared to An Inconvenient Truth, which was a filmed lecture.

The scraggly West Philadelphia beard and its scruffy hipster cousin have some well-groomed competition. The trendlet Full and impeccably cared for beards growing on faces that never fancied facial hair. That means the smooth baby face - once the signature of the conservative corporate gent - has more or less gone the way of pleated, baggy khakis. Where does it come from? Beards were standard facial fare until the 18th century, when razors became widely available. Beards came back in style in the 1800s, but when men traded field labor for office and manufacturing work at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, they fell out of favor again.

Let's begin with a couple of citations: "All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream. " - Edgar Allan Poe "What if nothing exists and we're all in somebody's dream? Or what's worse, what if only that fat guy in the third row exists?" - Woody Allen Inception , Christopher Nolan's epically silly, overwrought noir, is all about dreams, and about an international dream thief - Dom Cobb, played with his customary white-knuckle intensity by Leonardo DiCaprio - who enters other people's subconsciousness and comes out with valuable secrets.

Conscious uncoupling pays off We mocked Gwyneth Paltrow when she declared in 2014 that she and then-husband Chris Martin were parting ways in a super-amicable process called "conscious uncoupling. " There will be no acrimony, the duo said, but a harmonious divorce that would save their kids, Apple and Moses , from unnecessary trauma. The strategy worked wonders and the duo are still close friends, Gwyn says. "If you can't stay married, wouldn't the ideal be that you could still be a family and you could put aside your own stuff long enough to explore - what is this new family and who am I in it?"

Of the pope, Leo & Bosch I said it the first time I saw Leonardo DiCaprio as poet and lapsed Catholic Jim Carroll in 1995's The Basketball Diaries , his breakout film. "This young man," I said to Some Random Dude , "has something to teach the pope. " I'm certain the pontiff has a great deal to impart to Leo. So they did. Leo and Pope Francis had a tête-à-tête Thursday at the Vatican. "Your Holiness, thank you for granting me this private audience with you," DiCaprio said, according to the Associated Press.

Stamos: I have no secrets After decades in the public eye, John Stamos says he no longer has any secrets of the dark kind. "I really don't have anything to hide anymore," Stamos, 52, told schlock jock Howard Stern on Monday. Stamos spoke of his rehab stint in July. He entered a facility a few weeks after he was arrested for DUI. The Full House and Grandfathered star told Stern he doesn't drink or drug anymore. Stamos said he went off the rails after reacting badly to two events.

Adele: Music's superbeast! Know how they said Adele 's new album, 25 , might sell 4 million copies by Christmas? Not gonna happen. It's going to blast that figure right out of the duck pond! As of Monday, it had sold 4 million units in the United States alone . As of Tuesday, it was approaching 6 million. Worldwide sales aren't in, but they won't subtract. It's unprecedented, no matter how you slice the head cheese. In an era when no one's s'posed to be buying albums anymore, 25 destroyed and mutilated the old first-week sales record of 2.4 million set by NSync 's album No Strings Attached back in prehysterical 2000 - in its first four days out!

The best con artist movies - The Grifters , The Sting , Matchstick Men , David Mamet's The Spanish Prisoner and House of Games - bamboozle the mark and the audience at the same time. You're left in awed disbelief. How'd they do that? (And how did the word bamboozle come into being, anyway?) Focus , a glossy cruise down Scammery Road, aspires to the above-mentioned company. It certainly struts the strut. But for all the combustible chemistry of its two leads - Will Smith and Margot Robbie - the movie pulls off the worst kind of con: the one that disappoints.
