Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words.

The film reminds us why she was one of the greatest, most radiant actresses to grace the screen. No MPAA rating Where to Invade Next. Filmmaker Micheal Moore tries to find solutions for America's ills by examining how European governments restrict the power of corporations to control our lives.

On Sunday night at the Painted Bride Art Center, tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano proved that comfort level is the difference between high-concept and gimmickry. Playing selections from the self-explanatory Viva Caruso, Lovano's quirky Street Band, which closed the Mellon Jazz Festival, never once forced the issue. In the truest spirit of improvisation, the group used Enrico Caruso-related selections as the jumping-off point for variations, creating not only unexpected solos but also an ensemble sound that responded to the demands of the moment.

Bridget Jones's Baby The hot-mess Brit returns for the third installment with the same love-triangle high jinks that characterized the first film, this time with added morning sickness. After two unprotected hook-ups, Jones (Renee Zellwegger) finds out she's pregnant, but she doesn't know who the father is: either tech billionaire (Patrick Dempsey) or longtime love (and now ex) Mark Darcy (Colin Firth). The film is not as good as the first go-round, but it's much better than the dreadful second.

Jury selection remains underway in the civil trial of defendants being sued in the deadly Center City Salvation Army thrift store collapse that killed six people and injured 13 others three years ago. Common Pleas Judge M. Teresa Sarmina has imposed a strict gag order on the parties and their lawyers to prevent tainting the pool of prospective jurors and the 12 jurors and eight alternates selected. A First Judicial District spokesman said Thursday he could not even reveal how many jurors have been selected so far in Courtroom 253 in Philadelphia's City Hall.

Alon Goldstein is always searching for beauty, and he nearly always finds it in no fewer than a dozen varieties. The pianist played a recital Tuesday night at the Curtis Institute as a faculty member for this summer's Philadelphia Young Pianists' Academy. The repertoire was choice. And though the program was constructed of familiar composers, it seemed to make several points all at once. Goldstein told the audience the theme was orchestral, and his playing certainly supported the claim.

A jury of six men and six women was selected Monday to decide the fate of Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane, clearing the way for opening arguments Tuesday in Norristown.

She said Kane's trial on perjury, conspiracy, obstruction, and other charges would last a week. Earlier in the day, the judge read a list of people who will either be witnesses at the trial or whose names may come up in testimony.
