Samuel Johnson famously remarked that a second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience. Director Jonathan Demme and screenwriter Jenny Lumet, in their tumultuous and moving Rachel Getting Married, suggest that this saying applies to a first marriage, too, when the bride or groom is the product of a shattered family. Of course, Rachel Buchman's doting father, Paul (Bill Irwin), and his second wife, Carol (Baltimore native Anna Deavere Smith), wish great happiness for the bride-to-be (Rosemarie DeWitt)

Becoming Jane isn't just a soap opera - it's a soft-soap opera. It tries to flatter audiences into accepting a fictionalized account of the real Jane Austen's love life as the basis for her novel Pride and Prejudice and, indeed, her entire literary output. It isn't a jolly, inventive piece of japery like Shakespeare in Love, which had the light touch and witty bravado to expand our pleasure in Shakespeare's plays by embroidering on them. Becoming Jane (Miramax) Starring Anne Hathaway, James McAvoy, Julie Walters, Maggie Smith, Laurence Fox. Directed by Julian Jarrold.

It's another sign that the lifeblood of the movie industry is not glitz and glamour, but rather the imagination of an author toiling alone at a kitchen table. Here is a look at some notable winners, and the works that led to the movie.  -- Director: Ang Lee for "Life of Pi," from the Yann Martel novel about spirituality.

An ambitious bookworm in my youth, I once started Victor Hugo's Les Miserables . It was on a recommended-reading list. I ground to a halt a few pages in and discarded the recommended-reading list. I have never seen the musical and have never consciously listened to any of the tunes. And now, as you are already surmising, I intend to give the movie a miss.  I've had a warning from TheMattWalshBlog : "  I cried tears of blissful joy when Russell Crowe threw himself off a bridge at the end because it meant he'd finally stop singing.

Capsules by Michael Sragow unless noted. Full reviews are at baltimoresun.com/movies. Body of Lies: *** ( 3 STARS) This spy vs. spy thriller is smart, tense and rippling with topicality. Leonardo DiCaprio's deceptively rugged CIA agent masterminds the capture of a new world-class terrorist (Alon Abutbul) despite the bungling and interference of his Langley, Va.-based boss (Russell Crowe). The actor creates an existential juggler throwing a fistful of knives in midair - and DiCaprio doesn't drop a single blade.
