Sibling Revivalry: Watching ‘Say Anything’ For the First Time
I hatched the idea to screen 'Say Anything' for our next Sibling Revivalry column last month while Lindsay and I were driving back to New York City from our cousin’s Newport wedding. Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” came on the radio, and we both sighed. “I love this song,” Lindsay said. “'Say Anythin…
Sibling Revivalry: Watching ‘Annie Hall’ For the First Time
I’ve been a little desperate to show Lindsay a romantic comedy that won’t make her completely barfy, so it’s serendipitous that director Woody Allen’s latest film, ‘To Rome with Love,’ is releasing this Friday, June 22 – it gave us a chance to revisit one of his greatest for our latest Sibling Reviv…

After forcing my movie-avoiding little sister to watch ‘Titanic’ for the first time recently, it seemed only natural to continue leading her down the path of enlightenment. Which is why I’ll be holding her captive regularly to watch classic films for the first time; the start of a new column titled …
