A compelling book has become a less compelling, though interesting, TV bio-pic. The difference in dynamics is reflected in their respective titles. The book: "Ice Bound, A Doctor's Incredible Battle for Survival at the South Pole." The CBS movie: "Ice Bound: A Woman's Survival at the South Pole" (9 p.m. Sunday). This true story is nothing if not dramatic.

For someone in the midst of a professional crisis, Susan Sarandon is the picture of calm as she sips tea in a private Greenwich Village club. A head of curls is tucked under a newsboy cap, and her delicate porcelain features are remarkably ageless. You could almost imagine her living as long as the character who is presently torturing her: Queen Marguerite in Eugene Ionesco's "Exit the King," the "ruthless cow" and abused consort for 283 years of the titular Berenger the First.

Thanks to Craig Modderno for his insightful views on our recent production in North Carolina ("Can Orion Hit and Run with 'Bull Durham'?" Jan. 17). You'd never know it by the article, but we had a swell time making a wonderfully funny and engaging motion picture. While the interviews and portions of the article were clear and to the point, the location reportage leaves a mistaken impression of Susan Sarandon. Modderno wrote that she appeared cool to cast and crew. That's the trouble with relying on appearances--and brief ones at that--when reporting or doing anything else.

Susan Sarandon appears in a TV movie Sunday about a woman stuck at the South Pole, which may be exactly where her critics would like her. Although Sarandon's portrayal of Dr. Jerri Nielsen, who must perform a biopsy on herself in Antarctica, stands with some of Sarandon's best work, the attention this week is on the actress' opinion of the war in Iraq.

Call it the Meryl Streep Syndrome. Here you are, an actress capable of umpteen emotions, and you suddenly get pigeonholed as a drama queen. For Streep, the vicious cycle was finally broken with three lighter movies: "Defending Your Life," "Postcards From the Edge" and "Death Becomes Her." But Streep isn't the only esteemed actress with a desire to break free from the shackles of pathos and do something out of character. Take Susan Sarandon.

Susan Sarandon has an award-season trick in her arsenal: pot. The Oscar-nominated actress stopped by Bravo's late-night gab fest "Watch What Happens Live!" along with actor Ralph Fiennes when host Andy Cohen enlisted her in a game of "Plead the Fifth," which requires his guest to answer three questions and let only one go unanswered by pleading the Fifth Amendment. "Name one major Hollywood event that you showed up to stoned," Cohen asked her. "Only one?!" the legalized marijuana advocate asked in knee-slapping laughter.

Though it begins as a slick, tongue-in-cheek guide to successful dope dealing (think: a kind of latter day "Steal This Book"), the documentary "How to Make Money Selling Drugs" masterfully evolves into something far more vital, cogent and impressive. Writer-director-narrator Matthew Cooke looks inside the explosive, wildly lucrative drug trade and its various levels of operation and survival via such chapter headings as "Managing Your Drug Cartel" and "How to Beat an Arrest. " Backed by frank interviews with a rogue's gallery of former drug dealers and addicts (including, respectively, actor-rappers Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson and Eminem)

Don't be fooled into thinking that "The Big Wedding" is about the fetching young bride and groom. This is gross-out humor for the senior set. With raunchy comedies all the rage, I guess it was inevitable that sooner or later someone would go for the AARP crowd. FOR THE RECORD: "The Big Wedding": A movie review of "The Big Wedding" in the April 26 Calendar section misspelled Colombia as Columbia. - "The Big Wedding" is unabashed and unashamed, though its cast of top-tier talent should be, starting with Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon.

In “The Company You Keep,” the new film directed by Robert Redford, the Oscar winner also stars as a onetime political radical who has lived for decades as a fugitive from justice under a false identity. When the quiet, stable life he has created for himself is jeopardized, he is set back on the run to clear his name once and for all. The film, which opens Friday, has an impressive cast that includes Shia LaBeouf, Anna Kendrick, Brendan Gleeson, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Chris Cooper, Sam Elliott and Nick Nolte.

The past is a puzzle that resurfaces in bits and pieces for Robert Redford in "The Company You Keep. " The political potboiler's producer, director and star still leans left, but in telling this fable about 1970s radicals grown older and wiser, Redford's gotten nostalgic. The movie marks Redford's first time back in front of the camera since 2007's "Lions for Lambs," his preachy take on the government's handling of the war in Afghanistan. No doubt the character of former radical Jim Grant, a role that calls for an equal share of heart, quiet heroics and politics, influenced his decision to act again.

Susan Sarandon and hotelier Andre Balazs sit side-by-side watching Pasadena's 16-year-old Olympic pingpong prodigy Erica Wu battle her opponent in a heated game of table tennis. Their eyes follow the tiny white ball, back and forth, back and forth. A breathless announcer in a tacky gold jacket tells the crowd, “It takes a royal couple like Andre and Susan to make this thing happen! I've never seen this in the history of table tennis!” Indeed, this is a rare moment for pingpong, which until a few years ago was associated with dank basements and cheap beer.

Susan Sarandon's career has been laced with empty-headed characters. Until "Bull Durham," she seemed to be on her way to becoming a leading example of the performer whose good looks rule out the brainy parts. But now the critically acclaimed romantic comedy may be changing all that. Set around a North Carolina Class A baseball team, "Bull Durham" is about a hotheaded young pitcher (Tim Robbins), a slightly over-the-hill catcher (Kevin Costner) and the eccentric woman they both love (Sarandon).

Susan Sarandon is what you might call a walking oxymoron. She "has a special knack for harmonizing contradictions," a movie critic once wrote. "She can be larger than life, and yet always seems to have a grip on reality," says a producer who has worked with her. "She is reality based," a best friend says, "and at the same time magical." This makes for a life that is wonderful but not always comfortable.

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter once wrote of JP Morgan Chase executive Jamie Dimon, "For a banker, he's nice-looking. And he's got that head of fluffy white, unbankerish hair. " In the new thriller "Arbitrage," which opens Sept. 14, Carter pays Dimon another kind of compliment - he plays him, more or less, in the role of a mysterious banker named James Mayfield. The feature directorial debut of documentarian and writer Nicholas Jarecki, "Arbitrage" follows hedge fund manager Robert Miller (Richard Gere)
