UNDERRATED 'Beginners' : This warmly eccentric romantic comedy from writer-director Mike Mills has its problems (Mélanie Laurent's female lead is an example of the paper-thin "Manic Pixie Dream Girl" character type), but the film's sweetly raw view of relationships shines. Starring Ewan McGregor as a young artist grappling with his recently out gay father as well as the complexity of intimacy with Laurent, the film's warily hopeful heart is a soothing antidote to explosive summer fare.

On the evening of Sept. 10, 2001, Frank Gehry had dinner at a restaurant in Lower Manhattan with the Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake, for whom he'd just finished a boutique nearby, and Herbert Muschamp, then the architecture critic for the New York Times. Gehry and Miyake were just one of many creative pairs emerging from a new collaboration between architecture and fashion. Muschamp was at the height of his influence as a kingmaker in architecture.

The rebels leading the new craft revolution like to crochet bunny skulls. They hand-pour soaps in the shape of raw steak. They stitch fuzzy purple iPod cozies with the faces of monsters. They are young. They are girls. Except when they are boys. Regardless of gender, they are ironic, and punk rock. They are tech savvy, yet nerdy about yarn, fur, fabric, paper and buttons. They feel the weight of the world on their shoulders, then design a bag to express it.
