For her latest film, a comedy about working mothers in the '90s, Nancy Savoca must have chosen the title "The 24 Hour Woman" because "Scream" was already taken. This is a movie of ear-busting, wall-to-wall, rock-concert-level screaming. Married couples scream, their children scream, and on the set of the New York morning television show where the two wives work, screaming is an occupational necessity practiced as high-decibel art.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson did not stage a repeat performance of last year's protest against the Academy Awards. But he was still there in spirit. Jackson, who last year organized nationwide protests to complain about the almost total absence of black and minority Oscar nominees, was conspicuously absent from Hollywood on Monday. But he still registered his dissatisfaction with this year's ceremony, saying that the entertainment industry's doors remain largely closed.
