Turns out that Adaline, though we’re in the present time, was born in 1908. She married, had a daughter, lost her husband and then, at 29, almost drowned when a car accident landed her in frigid waters. Somehow, a scientific process involving a bolt of lightning both revived her heart and, yes, stopped her from aging.

In “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” there is definitely aplenty ado-ing. Too much, certainly, but then again, we come to the Avengers for their clown-car excess of superheroes, their colorful coterie of capes.

A group of American Indian actors have walked off the set of an Adam Sandler movie production following complaints over stereotypes and offensive names. Actor Loren Anthony told The Associated Press on Thursday, April 23, 2015, that he and eight others quit the production of the satirical western "The Ridiculous Six" after producers ignored their concerns about its portrayal of Apache culture.

“Right from the get-go, it didn’t feel right. But we it let it go,” said Anthony, a Navajo actor who started work as an extra on the movie Monday. “Once we found out more about the script, we felt it was totally disrespectful to elders and Native women.”

Finkel, nursing his wounds back at his Montana home, wrote to Longo in prison while he awaited trial: “At the same time that you were using my name, I lost my own.” Their resulting meetings quickly led to a 2005 book, partly about Longo, partly a mea culpa for Finkel. Now it’s a movie starring Jonah Hill as Finkel and James Franco as Longo.

There are a couple of creepy allusions to his death in the film that could briefly jar viewers. At one point, Roman (Tyrese Gibson) asks Brian (Walker) to promise their team won’t face any more funerals. When Brian replies, “Just one more,” he’s referring to that of the film’s villain (Jason Statham), but one can’t help but think of the actor’s own accidental death.

There is almost too much here for a single movie. Curtis, who charmed with his Marilyn Monroe slice of life “My Week with Marilyn,” relies on a combination of flashbacks of Maria’s pre-war life in Vienna and the present day tick-tock of her legal quest to take ownership of the painting.
