While the average gestation period for human women is nine months (280 days to be specific), it sure seems to take a lot longer in the sweet, cute but oh-so-slow moving "Bridget Jones's Baby."

Folks who just absolutely love this franchise, featuring Renée Zellweger's intrepid single gal, perhaps won't mind the ultra-dawdling exposition, wherein she takes inventory of her unmarried life thus far. As iterated by her properly British, office-seeking Mum, while still (accent on the still) unwed, she has a great job as a TV news producer, and a nice flat. But then there's the truth.

Tsk, tsk. Maybe things will take a turn for the romantically brighter which,

Director Clint Eastwood's "Sully," detailing the little-told backstory of Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger's "Miracle on the Hudson," is a competently dramatized paean to a very deserving hero, and much more entertaining than I had anticipated.

Sure, Tom Hanks is going to be as good as ever, and Eastwood will bring his journeyman skill to the work. But in capturing the idea of a human being functioning at his very best, Todd Komarnicki's swell adaptation of the book, "Highest Duty," by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow, puts it all across.

As you may have surmised by now in your traipse on this mortal Earth, our species is capable of

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After 28 years at Mass MoCA, Jennifer Trainer Thompson will take the reins of Hancock Shaker Village.   The nonprofit museum of Shaker life and history announced on Wednesday that Thompson will take over as the new president and chief executive officer in December. She takes over for Linda Steigleder, who is stepping down from the position after five years.    "I've always loved Hancock Shaker Village and six or seven years ago when the directorship was open, I seriously contemplated it. But I had small children and it just wasn't the right time for me," Thompson said. "I went to a Quaker school and I love so many things about

My Dad, a kindly stoic whose inner romanticism made a poignant appearance when the occasion stirred him, was fond of pointing out, if seeing, let us say, a very large woman and a very small man strolling down the street, "See, there's someone for everyone." All of which is my nostalgic, roundabout way of noting the kismet that writer-director Richard Tanne captures in "Southside with You," a chronicle of Michelle Robinson and Barack Obama's first date in 1989.

The thought here is that the odds of two such socially incisive and committed people finding one another is perhaps even greater than the serendipitous meeting of the big gal and the little guy. The given

Often, when we think of our greatest musicians – performers who spend countless hours practicing their instrument, and leading up to that, years perfecting their craft to attain the highest levels of virtuosic and interpretive artistry - we may assume that their lives are fully taken up by mastering their art.

So, it may come as a surprise that occasionally, a maestro ("master") can find the time and passion to dedicate her/himself to a completely different art form – and to, over the years, excel equally at that "secondary" activity. Such is the case with Boston Symphony violinist Gerald Elias.

A graduate of Yale University, Elias has been a Boston

Contemplating "Sausage Party," an R-rated, animated food orgy in more ways than one, I'm reminded of what a fellow journalist once opined at a block party: "You know what's wrong with you film critics? You see so many movies that when you chance upon something different, you just go crazy."

Thus, I'm proud to report that while the very bawdy, irreverent, sometimes hilarious and ultimately overcooked "Sausage Party" is certainly different, I'm managing to contain myself. While featuring some fine writing and direction from a gaggle of popular, Hollywood humorists, perhaps it's the cartoon venue that inspires some of the deleterious
