" Mulroney will be reunited with his "My Best Friend's Wedding" co-star Julia Roberts.

Showtime's "My Louisiana Sky," an appealing coming-of-age story set during a summer of change and growth for a young girl of the '50s, offers simple pleasures about salt-of-the-earth people. Nicely directed by actor Adam Arkin, this pleasing family film generates minimal conflict among the characters yet captures its time and place with an understated approach that is not condescending or judgmental.

"August: Osage County" has its six Oscar winners and nominees (oooh), its basis in a Pulitzer- and Tony-winning stage production (aaah), its Academy Awards dreams (gasp) and its reviews (blah). The movie opens wide in theaters Friday. The film was initially set to go wide on Dec. 25 amid holiday hoopla, but the Weinstein Co. reportedly pulled it back. Meantime, "August" the film (as opposed to the play, which scooped up five Tonys) has a 58 out of 100 on Metacritic. Will you see it?

The combo of faith healing and showbiz occupies an indelible place in Los Angeles history, a dark vein of razzmatazz. For his first stint in the director's chair, actor Mark Ruffalo dives into that volatile mix with a contemporary vision set amid downtown's dispossessed, fringe dwellers and rock 'n' roll strivers. Despite the powerful sense of place, "Sympathy for Delicious" unwinds a narrative thread that grows increasingly tattered and flimsy. Especially in light of Ruffalo's distinguished screen performances — including his role in this film — "Sympathy" plays out with a disappointing messiness.

The Scene: Tuesday's West Coast launch party for Vibe magazine at the Mayan. The 10-issues-a-year mag, a co-venture between Quincy Jones and Time Warner, is described by editor Jonathan Van Meter as "Rolling Stone for the post-rock 'n' roll generation." One clue that indicates Vibe won't be covering Crosby, Stills and Nash reunions, Carly Simon revivals or Eagles re-issues is the cover featuring emerging hip-hop artist Snoop Doggy Dogg.
