The Words

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Well, how about that: a grown-up picture, lacking utterly in CGI and superheroes. And not a bad one at that. Dennis Quaid plays a novelist reading his latest work, The Words. It tells the story of a struggling novelist (Bradley Cooper) married to a woman (Zoe Saldana) with whom he honeymoons in Paris. She buys him an ancient satchel from a consignment shop, and it just so happens to contain an unpublished manuscript on the level of Hemingway. He passes it off as his own and hits the big time. Until the original author (Jeremy Irons) shows up.

Darby O’Gill and the Little People

By Lindsay Hornsby

The 11-year-old local Irish folk-rock band gained possession of the night with a broad spectrum of cover songs (including Flogging Molly, Pat Benatar and Mumford & Sons) and a few unforgettable originals, such as “I Got So Drunk (I Crapped Meself).” Vocalist and fiddler Tristan Moyer (a.k.a. Nancy Whiskey) offered fierce yet effortless vocal articulation. She was accompanied by front man Andy Morris (a.k.a., Darby O’Gill) and the busking spells of accordionist Joseph Brailsford (a.k.a. Ringo Malarkey). In this packed house, the audience also became the show.
