June 24, 2007 | Choire Sicha, Special to The Times
REBECCA De MORNAY stars as a surfing star's tough wife on HBO's "John From Cincinnati." She appeared in "The Wedding Crashers" and recently completed filming on Bruce Sweeney's "American Venus." Do you live in the city proper? I live in Los Angeles, in the hills that will pass for countryside, but five minutes from Sunset Boulevard. But you feel you could be in the South of France if you squinted. The bougainvillea, the trees, the breeze, the Mediterranean architecture.

Though she's best known for her work in film ("Risky Business" and "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle") and more recently on television ("ER"), Rebecca De Mornay reserves a special passion for the theater. "The two experiences I've had onstage," she says, "were two of the best acting experiences of my career--and garnered some of the best reviews of my career."

Short, long, wide, narrow, bright, dull, fitted, loose. They're all in style for fall, marking something of a turning point in the history of fashion. This is the first season in memory when absolutely anything goes, when designers offer clothes in such a variety of shapes and lengths that women can choose all the looks they like rather than what they're told is in . It's also a season in which no certain style or color is more "right" than any other.

Before she went to Atlanta to makes her latest film, "Getting Out," Rebecca De Mornay recalls seeing a woman standing aimlessly on a Los Angeles street corner. "She was really dirty and down and out," says De Mornay, who came to fame 11 years ago in "Risky Business" as a sophisticated call girl who seduces naive Tom Cruise. "She was holding an infant, standing on the street, not begging, just sort of standing. You saw she obviously had nowhere to go and she wasn't asking for anything.

It's hard to know whether to believe her or not. Swinging her blond hair off her shoulder in one of those stiff-necked moves that cheerleaders used to make in high school, Rebecca De Mornay shoves out her hand, insisting, "It is so nice to meet you after all these years." Say what? "Of course," she says, swinging her naughty hair again. "I don't watch TV, but I do read ."

* * * 1/2 Leonard Cohen, "The Future," Columbia. Cohen goes caustic in the two quasi-poli-sci side-openers, "The Future" and "Democracy." The rest, though, is the erstwhile cerebral curmudgeon's most deeply and satisfyingly romantic work (dedicated to current squeeze--and co-producer!--Rebecca DeMornay), though definitely not without its requisite pain. Rumbling through Irving Berlin's "Always," of all things, Cohen sounds like the thinking-man's Barry White.

Doubleheader: NBC will be airing an HBO movie next year under a deal announced Monday by the two companies.
