match point"Match Point" is a Woody Allen film masquerading as something entirely different until the climax when it is revealed to be, if nothing else, a Woody Allen film. As with most of his films, "Match Point" is beautifully shot, well-acted, and superbly directed. The hermetically sealed milieu, and characters, featured in some of his weaker films, supports, rather than undermines, the story here. Set in modern-day London, "Match Point" follows the upward mobility of Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers)

In Irish playwright Jimmy Murphy's "The Muesli Belt," at Theatre Banshee in Burbank, a struggling pub owner and his neighbors face encroaching gentrification and the real estate feeding frenzy that was part of the stratospheric (and doomed) 1990s economic boom referred to in Ireland as the "Celtic Tiger.
