For 50 years, America sat in the dark, listening to romantic lines from Humphrey Bogart, Paul Henreid, John Garfield, James Cagney and Cary Grant. But the words that turned on the country frequently came from a skinny-legged former fighter by the name of Julius Epstein. "Julie" got his due Monday night, as the Writers Guild Foundation honored him with dinner.

"Nobody Walks" is one of those fishbowl films: an idea is tossed in like a crumb, then we wait and watch what happens. A dark story unfolding in sunshine, the movie wonders what might happen to a beautifully blended but bored California family when a pretty young thing shows up. The copacetic ensemble toying with all the emotions include John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, Rosemarie DeWitt, Justin Kirk, India Ennenga, Rhys Wakefield and Dylan McDermott....

Julie can't make up her mind, which is not unusual for a person 19 years old. "Maybe higher," she says to a bored Martin Robson. She is an attractive woman with short, dark hair and a complexion to rival Snow White's. Tight jeans and a brief halter call attention to the little extra God gave her in all the right places. "Higher would be nice," Martin replies in a soft British accent. "What do you think?" Julie asks one of two young friends waiting for her.

It's a law of nature that every generation believes they bring unprecedented insight to the balancing act of child rearing and marriage. Far less certain is whether, in the second decade of the third millennium, there's anything new to say about the whole affair. Jennifer Westfeldt tries to get a fresh slant on the matter in her ensemble comedy "Friends With Kids. " The mildly engaging, often exasperating feature poses a few good questions and offers some well-observed moments. Yet even as it zeros in on radical shifts in the mechanics and mores of parenthood, it sits quite comfortably in a well-worn romantic-comedy groove.

In the contemporary ballet “Liliom” -- based on a 1909 play of the same name, which Rodgers & Hammerstein turned into the musical “Carousel” -- Hamburg Ballett choreographer-director John Neumeier sends the audience home with a surprising hopefulness surrounding the iconic, central couple. The German company gave “Liliom” its American debut this weekend at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. The carnival barker Liliom bestows his final kiss on the innocent Julie, and this confirmation of shared love had particular power and promise Friday night.

"I have some questions about Obamacare," she continues. "If we can't pick our own doctor, how do I know my family is going to get the care they need?

NEW YORK - The East River has never been as beautiful or famous as the Hudson, so it was especially stinging when Macy's moved its spectacular July 4 fireworks show from the eastern waterway to its western rival, like a prom date jilting a mousy sister for her elegant sibling. But five years after a snub that raised howls of protest from Queens to the state capital, the East River is back with a bang - or a few thousands bangs. On Monday, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Macy's announced that on this July 4, the fireworks display reputed to be the nation's largest will return to the East River.

WASHINGTON - Negotiators for Iran and six world powers said Wednesday that they have completed preliminary discussions on Iran's disputed nuclear program and are dashing to finish a long-term comprehensive agreement by July 20. Wrapping up two days of talks in Vienna, the negotiators said they would meet next month to draft a final deal in hope of reaching an accord before the midsummer deadline. The results are hardly assured because the process will entail difficult decisions on a number of contentious issues.

TEHRAN - When Iran's leaders signed a preliminary nuclear deal with world powers in November, they promised the six-month agreement would quickly start "melting the iceberg" of Western sanctions, lead to new trade ties and lift the lives of ordinary Iranians. Opponents of the deal in the United States and the Middle East said much the same thing, warning that it would rapidly erode the international sanctions that have crippled Iran's economy. It hasn't worked out that way. More than four months into the deal, many Iranians think the interim accord has done little to help them.

In documents filed with federal accident investigators, Asiana Airlines stated Monday that flawed automatic throttles and the pilots themselves failed to maintain enough speed and altitude to safely land at San Francisco International Airport in July. Asiana's assertion about the throttles was immediately countered by Boeing Co., which lodged its own report with investigators, saying that the pilots were solely to blame and Boeing 777's automated throttle system was working properly.

As deputy director of the Office of Public Engagement, Rodriguez runs Obama's organizing efforts in support of immigration reform and supervises Latino outreach.

O.J. Simpson got me invited to USC the other day. It wasn't O.J., the man, but O.J., the Story of the Century. The occasion was a "business-in-society" seminar for high school seniors staged by a group called the Constitutional Rights Foundation. They wanted somebody to talk about "media hype." It was my job to do some more tsk-tsking over the obvious. In this Super Bowl of media events, journalism has been flagged more than the Raiders. I reminded students of just a few of the fouls.

A war of words erupted Tuesday between two Los Angeles City Councilmen vying for control of the annual Fourth of July fireworks show at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In a blistering press release, Los Angeles City Councilman Bernard C. Parks accused Councilman Curren Price and USC of “continuing what has become a petty retaliation effort” to force Parks out of the Fireworks Extravaganza he founded more than a decade ago. Parks said the university and some Coliseum Commission members have been at odds with him since he publicly opposed a deal giving USC control of the Coliseum, which he argued gave the community “little to nothing in return.” After Price proposed a Fourth of July fireworks show and fair of his own at the Coliseum, Parks accused USC of working with Price to cut him out of the celebrated event.
