Addressing the “spate of recent Hollywood films about Iraq,” Jump Cut’s Justin Vicari analyzes Post-Iraq cinema — veteran heroes in “The Jacket” and “Harsh Times.”
One Film Wonder: Examining adolescent infatuation with boundless charm, intelligence and humor, 1981’s “Gregory’s Girl” is a timeless delight. Dee Hepburn played Dorothy, the titular teen crush. She appeared in a few television programs but just one more feature film, a minor role in “The Bruce” fifteen years later. Reportedly she presently sells hoists in Scotland’s Forth Valley. Director Bill Forsyth followed this film with the magically wonderful “Local Hero”; he hasn’t directed a film since 1999’s “Gregory’s Two Girls” but has recently announced work on a new project.
