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.

Inception Christopher Nolan's puzzle film focuses on dream invaders (Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page) who plant ideas in the unconscious.

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.

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.

Hair was slick, cheekbones were chiseled, and gowns swirled into icy, jewel-toned pools on the red carpet at Sunday night's 88th Academy Awards. The culmination of the 2015-16 awards season brought with it a bevy of over the knee-length slits, and deep décolletage. And, oh, how we loved the sparkle and origami-drama. Optic white continued its clean rule, as did emerald green and navy blue. But soft pops of lemon yellow and commanding red oranges made armchair fashionistas everywhere take serious notice.

The 88th Academy Awards honored a wild, woolly tale of frontier vengeance, a newspaper procedural about the investigation of a Catholic Church sexual abuse scandal, and a full-throttle post-apocalyptic feminist action pic Sunday night. The big Oscar prize went to Spotlight , winning best picture, and The Revenant won for best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro G. Iñárritu as best director. But the most trophies - six - went to the gloriously crazy Mad Max: Fury Road . The ceremony's host, Chris Rock, wearing a white tuxedo jacket, opened with a deft and scathing monologue addressing the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, calling this year's ceremony "the White People's Choice Awards" and then skewering the hypocrisy of both the Hollywood establishment and some of the high-paid African-American stars who opted to boycott the event.

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.
