The three sisters of Haim didn't release any music until they'd been a band for five years, spending much of that time honing what's now a must-see live show. On “Falling,” the first track on the group's consistently catchy debut album “Days Are Gone,” they sing, “No one's ever enough.” Conclusion: These are women with great expectations. “We definitely do have high standards, and we're definitely not afraid to say no,” says Alana Haim by phone with a laugh. “I think before the record came out a lot of people around us were kind of pressuring us to turn it in,...

I dismissed the sudsy new prime-time thriller “Revenge” ( 9 p.m. Wednesday, ABC; 3 stars ) when I watched its pilot over the summer, but I was too quick to judge. It's terrifically trashy and a lot of fun. Sweet Emily VanCamp from “Brothers and Sisters” plays against type as Emily Thorne, a young billionaire who moves to the Hamptons to get even with the rich folks who destroyed her father (James Tupper) and ruined her life - back when she was called Amanda. She rents a house next door to Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe)

Oon has closed.  Review: Oon 802 W. Randolph St. 312-929-2555 Rating: !!! (out of 4) Off to a good start There's a little story behind how chef Matt Eversman came to name his southeast Asian-inspired restaurant Oon. Though it's pronounced like "soon" without the "s," the name's three letters stand for "out of nowhere. " "It's a phrase that was used by a couple of people that I really respect in the industry when they were describing me coming onto the scene," Eversman told me back in 2011, just a few months after leaving the chef gig at Saigon Sisters that earned him that praise.

*** (out of four) People who know each other extremely well possess the ability to shift, either intentionally or not, from long-developed ease into discomfort. A hand gently stroking an arm can still touch a raw nerve. In “Your Sister's Sister,” Iris (Emily Blunt), her best friend Jack (Mark Duplass) and Iris' half-sister Hannah (Rosemarie DeWitt) personify this precarious closeness. Iris has sent Jack to her father's remote house in the Northwest for some Me Time a year after the death of his brother, Iris' ex. Iris didn't know that...

After her blind audition for NBC's singing competition "The Voice," Chicago native De'Borah became one of the show's most talked-about acts, both for her visceral rendition of Train's "Hey Soul Sister" and her coming-out declaration. RedEye talked with the chic 24-year-old about her nerve-racking audition, working with her coach, Christina Aguilera, and growing up in Rosemont. "The Voice" begins its battle rounds at 7 p.m. Oct. 8 on NBC. What made you want to sing "Soul Sister" during your audition?

*** (out of four) I can't say I expected Chicago-born Gillian Anderson (“The X-Files”) to appear in a small role in the Swiss drama “Sister.”   The film, recently named to the shortlist of possible nominees for the 2013 Oscars' Best Foreign Language Film category, has another surprise up its sleeve, but it's to director/co-writer Ursula Meier's credit that “Sister” doesn't hinge entirely on a twist. Rather, it's a low-key, affecting story of dreams at odds with reality and crime sprung from necessity - with a final...

No princesses in tutus. No stodgy orchestras playing 19th Century scores. No formal, snobbish, elitist programs. This winter and spring on Chicago stages, dance productions range from edgy, industrial choreography to aerial ballet to a movement tale that incorporates live spoken word by poetry slam godfather Marc Kelly Smith. Looking for a snooze-proof dance show? Check out these six, which bring to life everything from a French noir horror film to a gypsy love story to Chicago's 1893 World Columbian Exposition.

The kraze has hit the Chicago area. Yes, that's kraze with a K as in Kardashian kraze. Sisters Kim and Khloe are set to make an appearance at 5 p.m. Friday at the Sears in Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg. "Meeting fans is my favorite part of my job so I have literally been counting down the days for this," Khloe said on her website. But before you fans rush off to the mall, make sure you read the fine print for rules of the meet and greet event. First, fans need to have purchased any item from the Kardashian Kollection at Sears between April 15 and April...
