Winnie the Pooh

(G) ★★★☆☆

Disney’s latest revival, and musical homage, to A.A. Milne’s lovable bear is longer on charm than it is on laughs. Sad old Eeyore (voiced by Bud Luckey) has lost his tail, and the gang makes various plans to round up a replacement. Voice actor Jim Cummings does a great impersonation of Sterling Holloway, the original Pooh, and the direction makes for a gentle and warm introduction to the cineplex for all the little tykes out there.

The Names of Love

By Tribune Media Service

Director Michel Leclerc and his co-writer Baya Kasmi illuminate the ethnic, racial and religious issues that have beset France from World War II to the present—through, surprisingly, the unfolding of a classic romantic comedy plot. Le Nom des Gens (The Names of Love) is so inspired and insightful that it is frequently hilarious yet does not shy away from tragedy. Leclerc and Kasmi’s ability to explore complex, volatile social issues with such exuberant humor won them a César (France’s Oscar) for Best Original Writing this year.
