There is something kind of groovy about "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. " The mellow yellow comedy stars Jane Fonda as a 70-something hippie with a passion for pot and protest suddenly dealing with the prodigal daughter who is back in the picture after revolting against that lifestyle years ago.

Cannes is upping its "Q" score. The official selection for the 2009 Cannes Film Festival was announced Thursday morning in Paris, and while it will be hard to beat last year's excitement of a whip-cracking Indiana Jones on the Croisette, Quentin Tarantino's take-no-prisoners personality may just be big enough to give old Indy a run for his money.

While Hilary Swank was making the inspirational drama "Freedom Writers" with writer-director Richard LaGravenese, he told her that for her next film, "I want you to do something lighter and funny and girlie.

Unlike her crime-fighting counterpart with the laser focus, Sedgwick has chosen to look at the bigger picture.

The comparisons will be inevitable between the Starz drama "Magic City" and AMC's critical darling "Mad Men. " So let's get a few of them out of the way. Each is populated with drop-dead-gorgeous dames and rakishly handsome fellas. Both take place in the glamorous Rat Pack era — late '50s, early '60s — when stylish folks drove cars the size of luxury liners and ordered highballs for lunch. They name-check real historical figures like the Kennedys and Frank Sinatra, and social upheaval bubbles in the background.
