MOVIES Gwyneth Paltrow's destiny is determined by whether or not she makes it aboard an about-to-depart London subway train in "Sliding Doors." Writer-director Peter Howitt tells it both ways.

Even though the festivities began at what many attendees think of as nap time, this event was geared toward guests under four feet tall--the Los Angeles premiere of Disney's latest animated epic, "Pocahontas," at El Capitan theater in Hollywood on Sunday, followed by a party in the parking lot behind the theater. The event benefited California Institute for the Arts, which appeared to be well-deserving of the attention as more than 30 of the people who worked on the film are Cal Arts graduates.

TORONTO -- Grabbing a smoke on the patio of downtown Toronto restaurant Terroni at the “Argo” party the other night, we were talking to actor Scoot McNairy about downtown L.A. French dip institution Cole's and the lost art of the three-martini lunch. McNairy introduced his friend, Jake, who told us he was in town to see the premiere of his dad's new movie, his first as a director. With the Toronto Film Festival's lineup of 289 feature films and 83 shorts, we smiled and nodded and thought it was nice that Jake's dad's debut movie found a home among the crowded lineup.

Troy Duffy went from a bartending screenwriter to Harvey Weinstein's golden boy in the '90s with his calling-card script "The Boondock Saints" -- a brash action comedy about twin vigilantes. His resulting bad-behavior flameout in Hollywood was humiliatingly turned into a cautionary documentary ("Overnight"). But the best revenge is a fan base. "Saints" took off on home video. Now, 10 years later, Duffy has reemerged with a sequel, "The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day," reuniting Connor (Sean Patrick Flanery)
