Theater in a match box. On a tabletop. Paper actors on a teeny proscenium stage. Toy theater, not primarily child's play, dates back to early 19th century England and is enjoying a resurgence of interest. Audiences can take a look this weekend in Disney Concert Hall at the Music Center's "Toy Theatre Festival" for families, and at an adult event in Disney's REDCAT space. The free family festival, aimed at ages 6 and up, takes place during the day throughout Disney on Saturday and Sunday.

Yet another cinematic slice of suburban dysfunction, "The Family Tree" works better as a serious look at a family's second chance at happiness than when it pushes its darkly comic agenda about an Ohio community's various peccadilloes. Director Vivi Friedman's inability to successfully reconcile the film's duality undercuts an eclectic cast gamely committed to Mark Lisson's thematically ambitious, if scattered, script. An ill-gotten clonk on the head gives bitter, two-timing wife Bunnie Burnett (Hope Davis)

The first prime-time dramatic special of the new TV season turns out not to have been produced for prime time at all. "The Drug Knot," airing at 8 tonight on Channels 2 and 8, was made as a "CBS Schoolbreak Special" for a weekday afternoon slot on the network, but with growing attention being paid to the national drug problem, CBS moved it to a more visible time period. Good idea.

Does the story of Edward Snowden not scream political thriller? The 29-year-old analyst disappeared from his Hong Kong hotel room a day after his identity was revealed as the person responsible for leaking secrets about U.S. government surveillance programs. In his 12-minute video interview with the Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, Snowden said the CIA could grab him at any moment or pay off a Chinese triad to kill him. PHOTOS: Famous document-leakers...

Picture Clint Eastwood blundering into a David Lynch movie and you'll have "The Rambler," Calvin Lee Reeder's hallucinatory hitchhiker horror about a taciturn ex-con (Dermot Mulroney) who keeps stumbling across strangers - and corpses - that might not actually exist. Either way, he doesn't much seem to care. He's just a cowboy trying to make it to his brother's pony farm in Oregon, but like Odysseus in blue jeans - albeit, a much less talkative Odysseus - he's beset by a dozen devils, including a fight promoter who forces him to battle a man with a hook, a traveling magician with a dream machine that makes people's heads explode, and a nameless beautiful blond (Lindsay Pulsipher, the star of Reeder's equally incoherent "The Oregonian")
