This week’s new movie releases, including The Book of Henry and All Eyez On Me, sound oddly familiar
Matthew Lickona 3 p.m., June 16
The most beloved movie ever made from a book by Margaret Mitchell, covering the fate of the Old South from ante-bellum days to post-bellum days. Birth of a Nation it is not. Southern belles flirt with their beaus, a pregnant lady tumbles down a flight of stairs, Atlanta burns, a wounded war hero limps back to the plantation, etc. To borrow an apt remark from the ruby lips of Scarlett O'Hara: "Fiddle-dee-dee." With Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard, Olivia De Havilland, and Thomas Mitchell; directed by Victor Fleming. 1939.
