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.

Dermot Mulroney is joining the cast of A-list stage and screen stars for the film adaption of Tracy Letts' Pulitzer Prize-winning play "August: Osage County. " Mulroney will be reunited with his "My Best Friend's Wedding" co-star Julia Roberts. In "August: Osage County," Mulroney will play Steve, a less-than-noble businessman whose eye wanders to the pot-smoking daughter of Barbara (Roberts), played by "Little Miss Sunshine's" Abigail Breslin.

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.

New Year's 2000 occurred at 10:14 Saturday night . . . and again at 10:29 . . . and again . . . and again . . . and again. Each time with as many as 10,000 people cheering and hooting in a rainbow rain of confetti as soldiers wielding M-16s stood on top of Humvees to deal with spreading civil unrest. At least that's what happened at the corner of 5th and Flower streets, between the Bonaventure Hotel and the Central Library in downtown L.A.
