The Richard Neutra-designed Staller House in Bel-Air has come on the market at $10.9 million. Commissioned in 1955, the home is classic Neutra with walls of glass blurring the lines between the interiors and the natural setting of more than an acre. Features include a 4,200-bottle wine tasting room, an office and a swimming pool. The restored 6,674-square-foot house, which has ocean and city views, contains four bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The seller is film producer Gary Levinsohn, whose work includes "Saving Private Ryan" (1998)

As a depiction of a small Midwestern city undergoing a major flood during a furious rainstorm, "Hard Rain" is as convincing as James Cameron's sinking of the Titanic. This documentary-like realism, alas, only underlines the preposterousness of its plot with its torrent of contrived, credibility-defying cliffhangers. A lighter touch, a sense of not taking itself too seriously, could have helped, but this Paramount release is basically a standard action-adventure.

In 1974, the Emmy Award-winning writing-and-producing team of Richard Levinson and William Link made an unforgettable TV movie, "The Gun," in which they traced the history of a single handgun as it passed from person to person. Swift, economical and devastating under John Badham's terse direction, it was as entertaining as it was a powerful, implicit plea for gun-control legislation.

Imagine an alien life force that is electrical rather than protoplasmic in nature, and you've got the gimmick that energizes "Virus," an unpretentious, amusing thrill-a-minute sci-fi horror thriller / monster movie that plugs right into fears of a Y2K crisis.

"Angus" takes us right smack back into the hell that was high school for all of us who didn't fit in for one reason or another. It's a journey made many times over in the movies, but this film, although uneven, has an uncommon honesty and a beguiling young actor, Charlie Talbert, in the title role. Angus describes himself accurately as "a fat guy who's good at science"--and therefore, the guy least likely to make an impression on the prettiest, most popular girl in school (Ariana Richards).

Not since Nicole Kidman followed the Camille-like dance hall entertainer of "Moulin Rouge!" with "The Hours," in which she portrayed Virginia Woolf, no less, has a star attempted such a stretch with such success as Heath Ledger, who has gone from playing a taciturn, tormented gay cowboy in "Brokeback Mountain" to the title role of Disney's scintillating "Casanova" (which opens Sunday), the tireless 18th century seducer of countless beautiful women.

Patrick Swayze is caught between the pedal and the metal in "Black Dog," a movie lacking the charm and style to raise it above a demolition derby with a country music soundtrack. Deliver a truckload of illegal guns to Newark with the FBI and double-crossing transporters on his tail or lose his wife and daughter to the really bad guys and his house to the bank. And all this without a driver's license.

Actress Jennifer Aniston has sold her Beverly Hills estate, which had been listed for $42 million. Weeks or months can pass before a sales price appears in the public records, but area real estate agents report the Trousdale Estates home went for $35 million to $38 million. At the lower end of the price range, that's $3,500 a square foot, an area record. Designed by Hal Levitt, the restored 1970 house is nearly 10,000 square feet. It contains two living rooms, two kitchens, a gym, five bedrooms and 71/2 bathrooms.
