****
THE MUST SEE SUMMER MOVIE!
****



What If



WHAT IF is the story of medical school dropout Wallace (Daniel Radcliffe), who's been repeatedly burned by bad relationships. So while everyone around him, including his roommate Allan (Adam Driver) seems to be finding the perfect partner (Mackenzie Davis), Wallace decides to put his love life on hold. It is then that he meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) an animator who lives with her longtime boyfriend Ben (Rafe Spall). Wallace and Chantry form an instant connection, striking up a close friendship. Still, there is no denying the chemistry between them, leading the pair to wonder, what if the love of your life is actually your best friend? The ensemble romantic comedy costars Megan Park and Oona Chaplin.

DANIEL RADCLIFFE SAY'S HE'S BORING FOR PAPARAZZI

Daniel Radcliffe



Daniel Radcliffe -- whose latest step in the path to breaking away from his "Harry Potter" alter ego is his romantic comedy debut, "What If" -- turned 25 in late July. In the lead up to the film's Aug. 8 release the former child star chatted with Wonderwall about being too boring for the paparazzi, why his birthday is always kind of a bummer, his go-to romantic gesture, those horrible hair extensions and more. Keep reading for the highlights.




Daniel Radcliffe Quotes



On being too boring for the paparazzi:



"Going to a club filled with celebrities and with paparazzi hanging out outside is not my idea of fun. I wouldn't be able to have a good evening knowing that there are a lot of people waiting to take photos outside. So I guess I'm kinda selective about where I go. But other than that, there is no secret to [staying off the radar]. Sometimes paparazzi find out where you are or take pictures, but on the whole, generally I live sort of too low-key a life for them to be particularly interested in me -- which is great!"



On why his birthday is kind of a bummer:



"It is weird to think of me turning 25, I suppose, to certain people. I think I'm gonna be in the unenviable position of forever making people feel really old because any time somebody asks me how old I am and I tell them, it just depresses them nowadays. I think that's gonna stick around for a while."



On making romantic gestures:



"I think the smaller moments are generally the ones that make up a relationship on the whole rather than grand romantic gestures. I've visited people and surprised people before, but not quite to the degree of just surprising them in another country [like his character in 'What If']. I was raised to do stuff like [opening doors for women] and to stand up if a woman comes to the table -- you should obviously stand and introduce yourself rather than just sitting. Whether that counts as romantic or just polite, I'm not sure."

Daniel Radcliffe



Daniel Radcliffe and Sarah Greene were spotted at New York hotspot Beauty & Essex over the holiday weekend. They arrived with some close friends including Daniel Radcliffe’s girlfriend Erin Darke.



The group arrived a little after 1:00am and was celebrating Sarah Greene’s recently Tony nomination for her role in the Broadway production, “The Cripple of Inishmaan”.



Greene arrived first with a few friends, she was very friendly with staff and immediately made friends with security. The group were dressed casual but chic – Daniel was in a baseball styled short sleeved shirt and jeans, where Sarah was wearing a little black dress and enjoyed bottles of Prosecco.

THE BEST HARRY POTTER CHAPTER IN SERIES

****
TIMES SQUARE GOSSIP MOVIE REVIEW


"DEFINITELY BRINGNG THEIR A-GAME FOR THE SERIES
FINAL CHAPTER. COULD BE THE MOSTS SATISFYING
INSTALLMENT YET"
****


Daniel Radcliffe AKA Harry Potter



There was no way that this final chapter was going to be anything but spectacular. The eighth in the series, it needed to wrap everything up in snazzy fashion, while at the same time delivering the same top-flight caliber rung of excitement. Well, it certainly does in fine fashion and on all fronts. I had never heard a screening audience so quiet at the beginning of the movie as this one was. Literally, it picks up right where Part 1 ended, with a subtle reprise of the chilling final scene when Voldemort opens the cast stone casket of Dumbledore , then it's off the charts. It's a dark, dark time in Potter-dom as the three main characters (Harry, Hermoine and Ron) attempt to sever Voldemort (and his dark forces) once and for all.


All of the principal cast is back and extra kudos go to Alan Richman for his utterly brilliant portray of good guy/bad guy Professor Severus Snape. My daughter had urged me to re-watch as many of the previous movies as possible and it was damn good advice, as the one consistent thing author J.K. Rowling did was to weave an utterly delicious tale beneath the non-stop supernatural action of the books. That, plus non-stop narrative. Richman, who I've loved since his turn as Hans Gruber in the first, and best, Die Hard movie (1988) chews the scenery with a snide, yet knowing presence. His character is utter evil … but, wait, there's a big reveal here that bonds his character with Harry like never before. I didn't read it in the book, but when I saw it onscreen, I was riveted by the moment.


Rowling writes in shades of grey; so, there's always one or two ways to read and interpret each scene. It's an interesting technique, which has served her well for sure … and, provokes non-stop conversation and thought; which is always a good thing! Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, John Hurt, Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Felton, are all back and excellent. The direction by David Yates is nothing short of staggering and he again distinguishes himself as one of the premiere directors out there … right up there with Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, have all grown into most formidable actors; Radcliffe in particular, not only looks great, but has developed a real affinity for his character and makes one wonder what he'll do next; he actually is terrifically capable of anything; witness his recent turns in Equus and the current How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying on Broadway. Watson, having developed into a beautiful young woman with terrific acting prowess can really head in any direction she wants. I'd love to see her in a full blown romantic drama or in flat-out action movie. There's also a rather romantic moment between two of the characters that has been in the works for years; its framed perfectly by Yates and produced a most satisfying, and audible reaction from the audience. You have to credit not only Rowling's efforts, but also the audience's continued support and fascination with her work. It's a symbiotic relationship that is indeed a milestone in modern movie making. If the books didn't work; how could the movies? There's a final coda, that was revealed in the book … and, it comes off exceptionally well. There's no question that in lesser hands it would have been considered a mistake, but this way it somewhat leaves the door open for future endeavors from the team. The music from Alexandre Desplat is just excellent (as good as his score from the recent The Tree Of Life) and the screenplay from Steve Kloves, who did seven of the eight scripts, is spot-on perfect. I can't sound one negative word on this epic work; just spectacular from start to finish. 'A' game indeed. Well done all around. This could be their biggest installment yet.

Special Awards

Each year, the Drama Desk votes special awards to recognize excellence and significant contributions to the theater. For 2010-2011, these awards are:

* To A.R. Gurney for his enduring, keenly observed portraits of American life over a prolific four-decade-long career.

The following are the nominations for the competitive categories. Winners will be selected by the voting membership of the Drama Desk:

Note: Eligibility and award category designations for the productions under consideration this season were determined by the Drama Desk board of directors, with recommendations from the nominating committee. Because of the abundance of great work throughout the season, the board also authorized the increase in the number of nominees allowed in select categories.
