Adapted from Melissa de la Cruz's bestselling novel, "Witches of East End" follows the lives of a mother and her two daughters. The supernatural drama series from Lifetime, premiering Oct. 6, stars Julia Ormond, Madchen Amick, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Rachel Boston and Eric Winter. Here is a Q&A with Julia Ormond and Madchen Amick. How closely does the TV show follow the novel's plot? What is different? Julia: It's fairly close; however, there are a bunch of aspects that are different too. For example, Wendy, who is played by Madchen, is a character who is brought in; she didn't exist in the novel at all. The novel is really just used as a springboard for the show.

She sprang from obscurity like a rocket a couple of years back, snagged the lead female role in three high-profile Hollywood movies--then seemed to drop out of sight as fast as she had emerged. No sooner had people stopped asking "Julia Who?" than they began to ponder: "Whatever happened to Julia Ormond?" The answer? The British actress has spent much of last year working in Europe on a film that triumphantly ushers in Phase 2 of her film career.

"A lone black car with dark tinted windows made an eerie sound, like echoing thunder, as it rolled over cobblestones past solemn guarded gates. Just outside, the gigantic GUM store stood completely empty of wares for shoppers. And here we were, filming in the fairy world of the Kremlin, with its opulent buildings and extraordinarily beautiful churches, a closeted world within another world, out of touch."

Everything about "Legends of the Fall" shouts epic filmmaking and it is not an altogether unpleasant sound. Bursting with big country Montana landscapes, big music, big emotions, even big hair, this is highly romanticized, old-fashioned sentimental filmmaking of a type we haven't seen in a while, the kind of movie where ringlets turn white overnight and no one rides in quietly on a single horse when leading a galloping herd is an option.

"Nostradamus" is a rather conventional film bio of a highly unconventional man, Michel de Nostradame, the French 16th-Century physician and astrologer whose prophecies, which he first published in 1555, continue to fascinate multitudes. Filmed largely in Romania, "Nostradamus" is a handsome, intermittently involving large-scale period epic that presents Nostradame's turbulent life and times with conviction and clarity, and it is sparked by several stunning performances.
