Hats off to Mick Jagger and his Jagged Films producing partner, Victoria Pearman ("Not Unlike a Rolling Stone," by David Gritten, July 30). It sounds like Jagger possesses all the qualities of the old-fashioned creative producer. As the daughter of filmmaker Stanley Kramer, I think it's nice that a hands-on producer is not a dying breed. What surprises me is that the majority of people assume that for a rock star of his status, producing movies "might be a fleeting distraction." Jagger has literally "produced" the Rolling Stones for 30 years and has always been creatively involved, whether it be in the studio or on tour.

"I played music in high school, I worked in record stores, music was my No. 1 fix," says Stephen Kijak, adding it all up. "I don't know why I'm making films, I should have been in a band." As a filmmaker, director Kijak has done the next best thing. He's made "Stones in Exile," a gorgeously entertaining documentary premiering at the Cannes Film Festival that provides a fascinating window into the Rolling Stones experience via a detailed look at the making of one of their albums.

Chadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in "42," will portray James Brown in an untitled biopic of the soul singer. "The Help" director Tate Taylor will helm the Universal Pictures movie from a script by "Fair Game" writers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth. Brian Grazer will produce, as will another backer who knows a thing or two about stage presence -- Mick Jagger, under his Jagged Films banner. The long-gestating project, which has been in the works since before Brown died in 2006, will chart the singer's ascent from poverty in Augusta, Ga., to his place as the Godfather of Soul, tirelessly performing such hit songs as "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and "I Got You (I Feel Good)

Even though "Enigma" has a plot almost as hard to crack as the Nazi coding device that gives this World War II thriller its name, it is such a grand, romantic entertainment that it sweeps the viewer along in its swiftly escalating suspense. More unpredictable than it first seems, "Enigma" crackles with Michael Apted's vigorous, perceptive direction from a superior script by Tom Stoppard from the 1995 Robert Harris bestseller.

He has survived the usual travails of stardom--a drug bust, failed marriages and a paternity suit--but this may be more than an aging rocker can bear: A British magazine for seniors, Saga, has put Mick Jagger on the cover of its September issue. Granted, it is a 5-year-old, softly lit photograph of the Rolling Stones singer sans wrinkles and wearing a boyish blue and pink rugby shirt to highlight his eyes.
