Hey, movie fans!

Plenty of movies continue to roll out at the virtual New York Film Festival, from the short (Pedro Almodóvar’s “The Human Voice” at 30 minutes) to the very long (Frederick Wiseman’s “City Hall” at 4 hours 32 minutes). Our critics Manohla Dargis and A. O. Scott discussed how their viewing experiences played out watching movies in the online festival versions of Toronto and New York.

The director Nancy Meyers thought she had retired. Then came Covid-19. She writes about reviving her “Father of the Bride” characters for a fund-raiser.

Enjoy the movies!
