C2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, April 5, 2012 Entertainment i " PICKS OF THE WEEK "The Iron Lady" (PG-13) -- Meryl SWeep pulls a full- force Streep-a-thon in this scattershot biopic about Mar- garet Thatcher. England's controversial conservative prime minister. Framed by the quasi-coherent mutterings of the elderly Thatcher in her late-life mental decline, the film shows a highlight reel of Thatcher's life and career. This flick managed to rake in another Oscar for the vet- eran actress, but that about sums up the appeal. Those unfamiliar with Thatcher's bumpy political career won't get much enlighUnent from the muddled narrative. If the Academy Award brought this film to your attention, then you pretty much know everything about it you need to know: Streep is a good aow, ss, even when she's in a boring and Meryl Streep in obscure movie. "Miss Representation"-- Teenagers spend an incredible amount of time in front of the television or computer screen, in addition to being bombarded with advertising over every inch of the real world. This documentary explores how women are portrayed through the media, and how that affects the development of young people. It's not a singular study, but a general look at the role of women in the media, all punctuated with statistics. 'q-he Iron Lady" The film could he seen as an introduction into a broad and relevant discussion.

'All My Sons' to open April 12 Stillwater's Town and Gown Theatre is set to open the fourth produc- tion of its 61 st Season next week with Arthur Miller' s critically-acclaimed drama, "All My Sons." "All My Sons" is set following World War II. During the war, Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop, which made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, caus- ing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever, returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are John Thomas, Eric Reitan, and Chad Neilsen (I to r) in the opening scene of Town and Gown Theatre's production of "All My Sons." The show opens April 12 and runs for eight performances. Photo provided all set in a structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a son to his guilty father is fitting conclusion to a play elec- trifying in its intensity. Show dates are April 12-15 and April 19-22. Town and Gown patrons will recognize many familiar faces among the "All My Sons" and Micki White as stage manager. Susan Weber is handling costumes for the production. Tickets for "All My Sons" go on sale Monday, April 9. To purchase a ticket, call the box office at (405) 372-9122. Please leave a message if no one is available to answer your call. Tickets may also be purchased online at Jonas, voted off the Island? Really? Well, at least we got to see the really, really nice Jonas who once declared, 'Tll be Colton's bitch if it'll keep me in the game", come completely unglued with totally tetched Tarzan. He even threw the "F" bomb around a few times. Jonas's demise didn't seem fair, but then "fair" is a place to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and step in monkey poop! There really doesn't seem to be much that is "fair" in Survivor, except perhaps the fact that Christina has a brief stay of execution. Jonas almost always plays the card of being helpful and nice. so it was refreshing to hear him tell Crazy ale' Tarzan to shut up and listen. Of course, as predictable as the cows coming home, he apologized! Jonas's apology moved Tarzan to mild tears as he pledged his allegiance. NOT! Tarzan decided "to take his balls and go home!" "I don't like him anymore, so I'm gonna' remove my allegiance". PLEEAASSE! Waa-Waa-Waa. said the little piggy, all the way home! It really does seem like Tarzan's chromosomes slipped and fell on their butt somewhere along the beach Speaking of butts, did we really need to watch Tarzan try to convince Chelsea that the skid marks in his skivvies was chocolate? Does anyone believe that they boiled food in that pot after cooking doo doo outta' Tarzan's undies? I just don't know if the ale' boy is going to be able to join us back on Earth before the end of the show. If his Mama is still alive, someone should let her know that her son is depriving some poor village of their idiot ! Enter, stage left .... Jay! Alas, the country boy made a brilliant statement. STICK WITH THE PLAN! "When you set a plan in place and it gets broken, all hell can break loose and come back to bite you in the butt"! Obviously the plan to maintain the Salani alliance and take out the old Manono worked. It also worked to take out the strongest. player in the old Manono, even if he was the chief cook and bottle washer! Perhaps everyone will begin to get the drift regarding "alliances". Once formed, they are hard to break. The really good news for Jonas is that Colton won't be back at the Loser' s Camp to annoy the crap outta' him. Since Colton didn't make it to the Jury, he'll be shipped to some obscure place to wait out the plane ride back to Alabama where his Mama can lick his little wounds! Troyzan is getting a run of great luck. "The early bird gets the idol!" He's pretty much guaranteed a spot in the final four now. However. with six women and only five men. the women could so easily ban together to knock off the men. How- ever, let it be known that a "Women' s Allliance" has never taken hold in Survivor. Go figure! Alicia is behaving herself for the moment. However, demons don't go away. They just lie low for awhile.
