Boorman Hasn't Figured Out Where Whimsey Ends and Sappiness Begins.

Film critic Stephen Schiff reviews John Boorman's new movie, "Where the Heart Is." It's a farce about three rich kids forced by their father to make it on their own. It stars Dabney Coleman, Uma Thurman, Joanna Cassidy, Crispin Glover, and Christopher Plummer. Boorman's earlier films include "Deliverance," "The Emerald Forest," and "Hope and Glory."

'Brothers': Family Ties, Unraveling In Wartime.

Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal are Sam and Tommy Cahill, one an upright Army captain on his way back to Afghanistan, the other a delinquent, newly paroled after a three-year sentence for robbery. But the real center of Jim Sheridan's movie isn't the brothers, but their whole teetering clan, which will collapse and rebuild itself in complicated new ways.
