Related Strips: #312: The Reader
I didn't post the over-the-weekend update that I'd planned (sorry), so here that is, and there will be two more strips this week — on Wednesday and Friday — although Wednesday's will finish off this scene with Becky, Jay and Jason. See you soon.
The Triple Feature is taking a break this week, so we can catch up on all of the movies for a gala End of 2008 show the following week (…yes, in 2009). Movie buffs like myself, Tom, and Joe always have a heck of a time trying to watch as many of the end-of-year releases as possible, especially with so many awards contenders coming out in the last two weeks of December every year. So far in my own end-of-year movie marathon, the highlights have been The Wrestler (out now in a good chunk of the country), and two documentaries, Man on Wire and Up the Yangtze (both out now on DVD).

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
