*1/2 (out of four) In 19th century Ireland, when people apparently can't tell the difference between a man and a woman, Albert Nobbs (co-writer Glenn Close) works as a waiter in an upscale hotel where no one knows that he's actually a woman. That's strange, because a best-possible performance from Close doesn't change the fact that Albert always looks like a woman who's doing a pretty good job of pretending to be a man. (From certain angles, he kinda looks like Robin Williams.)

Congratulations to Joan Allen, Viola Davis and Helen Hunt, who will all attend the Chicago International Film Festival (Oct. 11-25) to accept a Silver Hugo award for "significant achievements and contributions to the arts," the fest announced this morning. Davis is certainly the most active of the three right now, next appearing in "Won't Back Down," opening Sept. 28. She'll be on hand for a red carpet at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 22 at the AMC River East, followed by the award ceremony when Davis receives the CIFF's Career Achievement Award as part of the...

Being Dr. Helen Magnus' right-hand man isn't really good for your love life. Just ask Will Zimmerman, who takes another hit for the team in "Fugue," the much-anticipated musical episode of "Sanctuary" airing at 9 p.m. Nov. 25 on Syfy. As you can see in the video sneak above - and the exclusive sneak peek I showed last week - Will's love, FBI agent Abby Corigan (Pascale Hutton), has come under the control of an abnormal who understands only musical frequencies. In this scene, Helen (Amanda Tapping)

You just can't keep Helen Magnus from a goal once she sets her mind to it. No on knows that better than Will Zimmerman. In the Nov. 18 episode, "Icebreaker," Helen (Amanda Tapping) flies with Will (Robin Dunne) into a snowy, stormy area of the Bering Sea where Henry (Ryan Robbins), Declan (Robert Lawrenson) and his team from the UK Sanctuary are stranded on a shipwrecked icebreaker. "Icebreaker," written and directed by Martin Wood, looks like one of those classic, trapped-in-a-tight-space "Sanctuary" adventures.

Amanda Tapping kissed, and now she's finally telling. Earlier this week I chatted by phone with the "Sanctuary" star and producer about the upcoming two-part Season 4 finale, but before we talked about "Sanctuary for None," I just had to ask about "Monsoon," the season's fourth episode. And that controversial kiss between her character, Dr. Helen Magnus, and the very attractive scientist Charlotte Benoit (Sandrine Holt). "I just thought it was a nice kiss … I don't think we were trying to push any buttons particularly,” Tapping said from...

“You will know everything when the time is right.” That's what Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) told her No. 2 man, Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), throughout Season 4 of “Sanctuary,” ( spoilers ahead! ) refusing to tell him the plan she had set in motion while trapped in the past. As we saw in the two-part season finale, “Sanctuary for None,” her secrets nearly destroyed the sanctuary and their relationship. Wait, it did destroy the sanctuary, but she meant to do that.

An old frenemy returns to the "Sanctuary" in "Chimera," and I'm not talking about Nikola Tesla. Yes, everyone's favorite snarky vampire (played by Jonathon Young) is back in the episode, which airs on a special night--at 9 p.m. Nov. 29 on Syfy. He and Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) undertake a dangerous mission when the Sanctuary computers are attacked. Henry (Ryan Robbins) discovers the problem, but the only way to remedy it is to hook up to the computer. Magnus and Tesla volunteer, and are transported to a virtual Sanctuary, where they encounter...

Logan Square's diagonal thoroughfare carves out the perfect path for a night of bar-hopping. This itinerary starts near the California stop on the Blue Line and heads northwest before doubling back to make the most of two bars with late-night licenses. 1) Start your night with a couple of cheap beers at Cole's Bar (2338 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-276-5802) , where you might be lucky enough to catch a band rocking out in the back room. 2) Right at the Fullerton/Milwaukee split, Helen's Two-Way Lounge (2928 W. Fullerton Ave. 773-227-5676)

You may not have a ton of interest in "Red 2," a sequel to the 2010 film you either didn't see or passively watched for five minutes on HBO during a particularly lazy/hungover Sunday. You almost certainly have a much greater desire for free doughnuts and coffee, however, even if they're being used as a promotional tie-in for an action film starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren as formerly retired intelligence operatives. Between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday at Wabash and VanBuren--a press release notes that the CNA Building is our skyline's only red building; I'm...

If you thought Helen Magnus made a shocking play in the first part of the "Sanctuary" Season 4 finale, wait until you see what show does in "Sanctuary for None: Part 2," airing at 9 p.m. Dec. 30 on Syfy. Star and producer Amanda Tapping said Magnus's latest surprise play is the "final reckoning" for the Sanctuary team. If you're caught up with events, Will (Robin Dunne) currently is being forced to work with SCIU director Greg Addison (Brian Markinson) while Bigfoot (Christopher Heyerdahl)
