Rebel in the Rye

“It is the tale, not he who tells it.” — Stephen King In so many words, Columbia University professor Whit Burnett (Kevin Spacey) gives this proverb to his attentive classroom during a lecture.

Sleeping With Other People

The disastrous minefield that is the current dating arena is a tough one to navigate, as Leslye Headland’s Sleeping With Other People so humorously demonstrates.
