I love Julianne Moore. I think she is smashing. And I remember the first time I saw Greg Kinnear was in "Sabrina," a great movie about life (and love) set on The Gold Coast of Long Island. Harrison Ford was also in "Sabrina." He played the older brother. Nathan Lane is always amusing. So I will look forward to the release of "The English Teacher."

I just saw Win Win with our own Burt Young, who was great as the old man Leo. Two scenes from Port were in the movie; the train station and Louie's Bar. Also, this movie was really good, highly recommended also. Ditto on Moore, Kinnear and Lane.

Only good things can happen with all this filming here on the north shore. Keep the business coming. Plus the fact it is fun to see our local area in the movies

This is very cool. But I wish it was starring Jake Gyllenhall.
