** (out of four) Like a disappointing, minimal adaptation of a great novel, “Ida” (which isn't actually based on a book) turns what should have been a complex mystery into a simple question and answer. The 1960s-set film from Polish director/co-writer Pawel Pawlikowski (“My Summer of Love”) watches as Anna (Agata Trzebuchowska) meets her only living relative, Aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), just prior to taking her vows as a nun. Wanda's the opposite of Anna: Outgoing and somewhat desperate, she drinks, smokes and sleeps around.

*** (out of four) I fell madly in love with the best scenes in “Like Crazy,” and there are several of them. So it's nearly as heartbreaking as the film itself to recognize that it's merely a good movie with some greatness in it.   To call the plot simple would be suggesting that relationships are simple, and the whole point of writer-director Drake Doremus' fourth film is that they're not. At least, not as simple as they should be,...

There's no other way to put it: My first experience at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah was simply fantastic. I saw 17 movies, covered six premieres, appeared in the press line of two red carpets and had four sit-down interviews. On rare occasions I ate or slept. It was a blast. You can look back on my six days at Sundance here and find lots of celeb videos (including extended interviews with Rainn Wilson and Elijah Wood) here . Below find random quotes gathered from the stars at the fest, either from direct interaction on red carpets or...

Anna, how would you genuinely respond to a new acquaintance who asks in conversation, "So where do all the young, hawt, hip, femme, single lesbians hang out?" Mind you, the question is asked in person (not online or via text where the anonymity warrants a blow-off or obnoxious response)? "Hooters," I want to respond (which may be true). The question irritates me. I find it rude, shallow, obnoxious and superficial, and I would find it so if it came from a man and he was asking me regarding heterosexual women.

**1/2 (out of four) The last time director Joe Wright (“Atonement,” “Hanna”) teamed with Keira Knightley on an adaptation of classic literature (“Pride and Prejudice”), she scored a Best Actress Oscar nod. Not going to happen this time. In Wright's take on Leo Tolstoy's 19th century novel “Anna Karenina,” Knightley struggles to convey believably the title character's tragic decisions and grandly emotional behavior. As she trades one Alexei for another, her throw-caution-to-the-wind lust for...

Dear Anna, I'm a single straight lady in my late 20s. I have a lady friend who also identifies as straight whom I hang out with once a week or so. The problem is that when we are out drinking, I feel like she puts the moves on me a little. She makes these comments about how hot I am and gets very touchy, to the point where it makes me uncomfortable. Is she hitting on me? What do I do about that if she won't come out and say something? - Too Friendly Dear Friendly, She might be hitting on you, TF. Or she might be your garden-variety...

There's a reason "Spies of Warsaw" isn't airing as part of PBS' "Masterpiece Theatre. " I expected the two-parter ( 8 p.m. April 3 and 10, BBC America; 2 stars out of 4 ) to be a tense thriller, what with the 10th Doctor Who, David Tennant, playing Col. Jean-Francois Mercier, a French aristocrat who's actually a covert operative spying on both the Nazis and the Russians in pre-World War II Poland. Spies are hot right now. But in this four-hour miniseries adapted by Dick Clement and Ian la Frenais from the Alan Furst novel,...

Sex toys have been around almost as long as sex itself--or at least since Paleolithic times. They've appeared on ancient Greek vases, been uncovered at archaeological digs and there's even a reference to dildos in the Bible (Ezekiel 16:17). Despite their prevalence historically and culturally, sex toys still get a bad rap, as evidenced by the letters I receive about partners who are jealous or afraid of being "replaced" by two inches of rubber and a watch battery. But that way of thinking is changing.

For its 2013 movie awards, MTV has added two new categories to help measure true excellence in filmmaking: Best Shirtless Performance and Best Musical Moment. What do you expect from an awards ceremony that honors Best Kiss, Best WTF Moment and Best Scared-As-S**t Performance? And more to the point, only Channing Tatum from "Magic Mike" was nominated for Best Shirtless Performance?! Although I have no complaint about most of the other nominees save Ted, what about Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Matthew McConaughey, Adam...
