Trouble With the Curve

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

Clint Eastwood plays Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout whose eyes are failing and whose contract is up. Amy Adams, who is getting better by the movie, plays Gus’ workaholic lawyer daughter, Mickey, who has daddy issues. Mickey joins Gus in North Carolina and attracts the eye of another scout and former player, played by Justin Timberlake. A wholly predictable and yet serenely enjoyable film.

Matisyahu

By Ross Martin

Wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, Matisyahu walked through the crowd and to the stage unnoticed—many fans were still unaware of his new lighter-colored hair and clean-shaven appearance since he shed his “Hasidic reggae superstar” label in 2011. This incarnation of Matisyahu (the musician has always experimented with different sonic styles) put on a good—not great—show, one that was nothing like the last three times I saw him.
