RANDALL KING / MOVIES
Wicked sexy

In the movie Annie Hall, Woody Allen confessed to an erotic fixation on the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Judging from the new trailer for Maleficent, a whole new generation of kids are bound to get similarly confused by Angelina Jolie's evil -- but decidedly attractive -- sorceress in the live-action Disney reboot of the Snow White story.

Glee gets a little Miley-age out of controversy

To twerk or not to twerk? That is the question this week as Glee turns its attention to the sort-of dance that has the TV-watching world all in a tizzy since Miley Cyrus bumped her business into Robin Thicke at the MTV VMAs. In the new episode The End of Twerk (which airs Thursday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m. on Fox and Global), the New Directions gang learns the, er, ins and outs of the dance move. Meanwhile, back in the Big Apple, Rachel tries to convince Kurt that they should both get tattoos.

Maybe Donna Tartt will follow his lead

Is it possible that American novelist Jeffrey Eugenides (The Marriage Plot, The Virgin Suicides) has been inspired by Canadian Nobel laureate Alice Munro? After three thick novels, each critically acclaimed and each separated by a decade, Eugenides is at work on a collection of short stories. One of them, Find the Bad Guy, narrated by a divorced commercial radio consultant who is stalking his ex-wife and children, can be read in the Nov. 18 New Yorker.

 

KEVIN PROKOSH / STAGE
Mature subject matter

The University of Manitoba's Black Hole Theatre Company opens a very intriguing season Nov. 19 with Judith Thompson's nightmarish Lion in the Streets, which follows a young Portuguese immigrant reliving the moments before she dies. The troupe's contribution to ChekhovFest next January is Brian Friel's Aristocrats, before finishing its season on a high note with the Winnipeg premiere of The Pillowman by the always enthralling Martin McDonagh.
