A sobering thriller that puts many human faces on an international crisis, Megan Griffiths' assuredly directed indie "Eden" tracks the experience of Korean American teenager Hyun Jae (Jamie Chung) after she's kidnapped by a sex slave ring. Labeled Eden by a shady federal marshal (Beau Bridges, chilling) in charge of the operation, she's transported from New Mexico to Nevada, held captive in a storage facility with other degraded young women and overseen by a short-tempered, drug-addicted striver named Vaughn (a mesmerizing Matt O'Leary)

Watching the Violent Femmes at Coachella is a kind of existential angst for a millennial guy. The trio's acoustic punk reveries on the Main Stage were perhaps the most articulate depiction of young male desire that any band could conjure for a twentysomething male. Sure, you can rage in the dance tent, or profess your affections in a smaller arena, but for real, uncut adolescent masculinity and its attendant frustrations, there is the Violent Femmes, and no one else. FULL COVERAGE: Coachella 2013  |  What to see and do Hearing them play "Add It Up" on the main stage is both a reminder and a warning: The world is big and wide and nothing can replace that first gasp of musical influence as a document of how to feel attraction.

The Dianne Klein column ("The End Does Not Justify the Fanatical Means of Terrorism," March 16), after building on the murder of Dr. Gunn, asks for governmental vigor in pursuit of pro-life fanatics as if they were murdering terrorists. Two significant issues come to mind: life and freedom of assembly. I'll comment on the life issue. What is life? When does life begin? When does life end? Courts have addressed life of a fetus with respect to the time from conception. So now, a legal system says what is life and what is not life: To the system, life depends on a particular spot on the gestation timeline.

Let's be honest, sometimes there's no better way to waste time on a Friday at work than on Facebook. And after stumbling upon the addictive new website "What Would I Say?," wasting time got even more fun. The website culls old Facebook activity and uses the information to predict a future status based on what you talk about and how you talk about it. The result: a sometimes funny, sometimes nonsensical status that is often uncannily accurate. "What Would I Say?" got even better when we discovered that users can generate statuses for Facebook pages belonging to celebrities or organizations.

WASHINGTON - A top Internal Revenue Service official knew as early as June 2011 that conservative groups seeking nonprofit status were being singled out for additional scrutiny, raising questions about when senior officials were informed and why the IRS allowed the agency's commissioner to deny the targeting effort in March 2012 testimony before Congress. The IRS has said the commissioner was not aware of the targeting at the time, but it has not explained why the testimony was never corrected.
