NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —  The U.S. Department of Education is helping to strengthen ties between area educators and cultural institutions.   On Thursday, education leaders celebrated the reception of a $740,000 federal grant to support arts-integrated professional development for Berkshire County educators.   "Simply summarized, this grant moves us closer to unleashing the creative potential that I believe is contained in our region," Howard "Jake" Eberwein III, dean of graduate and continuing education at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts said.   "It recognizes that every child and every person is truly an

Watching Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris's "Battle of the Sexes," about the events leading up to the famous gender war/tennis match on Sept. 20, 1973, between woman's champion Billie Jean King and former great Bobby Riggs, I tried to remember what I thought at the time. I like to think I applauded the dispelling of prejudices and welcomed the renaissance it boded for the human race. Surely I didn't opt for the he-man stance, afraid what it might mean to my manhood if a female bested a male in something other than childbirth. Nah, I couldn't have.   It's mindboggling. While the more advanced, higher-educated segments of the world's populace have more

In "Brad's Status," Brad Sloan nearly drives us crazy with his unremitting regret and self-doubt as he accompanies his son, Troy, played by Austin Abrams, to look at colleges in Boston. Oh, we all do it. That's how we keep score. It's just that Brad, portrayed by Ben Stiller, is especially effective in showing us how unattractive this practice seems if not kept in check. Still, we are compelled to commiserate, appreciating that Stiller's imaging of the neurotic, 21st century everyman adds an insightful chapter to the human comedy.   Written and directed by Mike White, Brad's travail is entertaining in that alternately painful and bittersweet way, when

Fearing that I might be scarred for life after seeing Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!" I am happy to relate that slowly but surely the grotesque concepts and visions of this postmodern horror film are dissipating from my fragile and offended psyche. I mean, I am safe, aren't I? Hopefully it's not part of a grander trick.    This is sinister stuff, intentionally as well as through the error of its haughty self-indulgence. Oh, dear reader be cautious. It starts out with intriguing eeriness ... even a bit Hitchcockian. No offense, Master. But that's just to suck you into its ugly movie Hell.   For sure there will be a cult following by virtue of its violent

Filmmaker Paul Shoulberg's "The Good Catholic" is a convenient, pocket-sized edition of ruminations just right for the soul in search of a quick philosophical challenge. While there's nothing new about this tale of temptation and the emotional tumult it sets in motion, the general quality of the human beings it brings to the fore proves most arresting.    There is a cathartic honesty in the story's perplexity ... an interesting look at faith as an improver of self and society.   Meet Zachary Spicer's Daniel, the nice young man who became a priest just in time to give his dying father last rites. Now serving in a small parish in Bloomington, Ind., his

'Tulip Fever': When Speculation Was in Bloom

A fascinating backdrop for an intricate if not convoluted, seriocomic love story that could have very well been written by Nöel Coward gives director Justin Chadwick's "Tulip Fever" an arthouse cachet. But while patience is a virtue, the esoteric appeal of this costumed affair set in 17th-century Holland may require more virtue than the general moviegoer wishes to expend. All the same, for those unfamiliar with the financial frenzy that speculation in tulip bulbs created during the era in question, its intrigue deserves a study even if you pass on seeing the film.   Viewed in a greater, historical perspective, not unlike the frantic rush by everyday Americans to play
