Yah! I just saw a screening of Les Mis—oh my god—it is mind-blowing. It's so good that it's kind of stupid. It was the first musical that I ever saw when I was eight or nine, so I always had a connection to it. The movie holds up like you can't believe. It's amazing.

3 Old Movies Emma Stone Loves

I love comedies. I grew up watching those kinds of films as a kid. My dad also loves them. The first movies I ever remember watching were ‘Animal House’, ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’.

I didn’t want to watch the movie more than once because I didn’t want to fall into doing an impression, but the moment that really defined Fran for me was that one where he [C.C. Baxter, played by Jack Lemmon in the film] says, “The mirror . . . it’s broken,” and Fran says, “I know. I like it this way. Makes me look the way I feel.” That was the moment that stuck with me. I was like, Okay, that is where she’s functioning at any given time. It’s such a major element in life—of just getting through the day.

I recently watched Bringing Up Baby [1938] for the first time, and Cary Grant riffs in that film. So does Katharine Hepburn—she doesn’t stop for the entire movie.

Blue Nights

This enhanced eBook edition of Blue Nights includes three short films directed by Griffin Dunne and starring Joan Didion. Each film blends Didion's incisive prose with images and mementos from her daughter's life. From one of our most powerful writers, Blue Nights is a work of stunning frankness about losing a daughter. Richly textured with bits of her own childhood and married life with her husband, John Gregory Dunne, and daughter, Quintana Roo, this new book by Joan Didion examines her thoughts, fears, and doubts regarding having children, illness, and growing old. Blue Nights opens on July 26, 2010, as Didion thinks back to Quintana’s wedding in New York seven years before. Today would be her wedding anniversary. This fact triggers vivid snapshots of Quintana’s childhood—in Malibu, in Brentwood, at school in Holmby Hills. Reflecting on her daughter but also on her role as a parent, Didion asks the candid questions any parent might about how she feels she failed either because cues were not taken or perhaps displaced. “How could I have missed what was clearly there to be seen?” Finally, perhaps we all remain unknown to each other. Seamlessly woven in are incidents Didion sees as underscoring her own age, something she finds hard to acknowledge, much less accept. Blue Nights—the long, light evening hours that signal the summer solstice, “the opposite of the dying of the brightness, but also its warning”—like The Year of Magical Thinking before it, is an iconic book of incisive and electric honesty, haunting and profoundly moving.

If you're a Joan Didion fan and have read The Year of Magical Thinking then you need to read her new book because it's about Quintana dying. It's pretty awful, but it's so beautiful.

Pygmalion

When George Bernard Shaw wrote Pygmalion more than a half century ago, no one could have predicted his play would eventually be converted into one of the great musicals of our time -- My Fair Lady -- and an Academy Award³-winning motion picture. Generations of readers and theatergoers have found relevance in Shaw's story of speech therapist Henry Higgins, who successfully transforms Liza Doolittle, a "draggle-tailed guttersnipe," into a darling of high society who momentarily upsets his hard-edged reserve. The extraordinary wit of this master dramatist of the twentieth century cuts away at the artificiality of class distinctions to reveal that human clay can be molded into wondrous shapes.Washington Square Press' Enriched Classics present the great works of world literature enhanced for the contemporary reader. This edition of Pygmalion includes the analysis of Eric Bentley from his book Bernard Shaw. Essential biographical and historical background is provided, together with notes, critical excerpts, and suggestions for further reading. A unique visual essay of period illustrations and photographs helps bring the play to life.

Some people have an issue with the age gap between you and Colin Firth in the new Woody Allen film Magic in the Moonlight. How do you feel about that? Honestly, it reminds me of My Fair Lady or Pygmalion. It's like Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle. There's a professorial relationship there and that's how we viewed it all along.

Somebody got me a banjo-ukulele and I just started fooling around on it. It's been pretty great. I've never played an instrument before in my life, except for the flute in fourth grade, but it's small enough for my hands so I've been screwing around with it and I learned "What a Wonderful World" which is really fun on a ukulele. You can get the tabs online—it's pretty easy.
