Deep End of the Ocean," an emotion-ridden look at what happens when a child is snatched away from his parents only to reappear nine years later, is as heartfelt as it is shallow -- an affecting piece of cinema whose effect dissipates quickly under careful scrutiny.Of course it's affecting; how difficult is it for a film about parents who lose their child to be affecting? And it features a wonderful performance from Michelle Pfeiffer, whose mother seamlessly goes from carefree to devastated to barely hanging on. Hers is a believable, wonderfully nuanced performance that largely avoids the obvious histrionics.

I'm pretty sure "True Blood" just went over the deep end. Here's a quick summary of what went down tonight: A hate group recruiting Hoyt, who suddenly is a really, really bad person. The smoke monster chuckling. Pam sporting crimped hair. Lafayette has his lips sewn shut by Jesus' witchcrafty family. Sam Merlotte sniffing around like a bloodhound. Jason shooting Jessica in the head. Oh, and Lilith rising from blood like Carrie and blowing blood mist while sounding like a wounded baby raptor from "Walking With Dinosaurs.

WHITE PLAINS, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Charles County say a 3-year-old boy drowned in a swimming pool during a birthday party. The Charles County Sheriff's Office says the boy was swimming in an in-ground pool with several relatives late Saturday afternoon at a home near White Plains. As some people were getting out of the pool, they saw the boy at the bottom of the deep end. A registered nurse performed CPR at the scene, and the child was rushed to a hospital, where he died.

In all its many versions - including Elisabeth Sanxay Holding's 1947 story and novel The Blank Wall, and Max Ophuls' 1949 movie adaptation The Reckless Moment - the plot of The Deep End, a hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival, is about a responsible mother who hides a corpse. She hopes to prevent police from connecting her family to the accidental death of her college-age child's sleazy older lover. There's one big difference in the new-millennium edition: the straying progeny, previously an antsy daughter, becomes a homosexual son. The current version's co-directors, Scott McGehee and David Siegel, vainly try to use the issue of adolescent gay activity to contrive a buttoned-up, ersatz-'40s atmosphere in the middle of a 2001 movie.

SAY YOUR CAR SINKS every time you try to cross a river. Do you order up another car, promise to drive more carefully, or blame the previous owner? Or do you use a boat? Maryland's Department of Juvenile Services has been sinking for decades. The centralized, ostracized, often demonized department has not made deep connections to neighborhoods and communities statewide managed to induce other agencies (mental health, social services, schools) to continue helping kids after they are accused of wrongdoing, or kept them from consistently sliding deeper into its system.

WIMBLEDON, England - The ones outside the gates of Wimbledon, the kids wrapped in blankets, the guys under a makeshift plastic tent, the four women in shorts and T-shirts that read "We love Henman," the family jogging up from the Southfields tube station who had headed out of their flat as soon as they got the news, these were the happy tennis fans. For the third time in its 127-year history and the first time since 1997, there will be tennis played at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club during the middle Sunday of Wimbledon.

"Crimson Tide" and "The Hunt for Red October": Separated at birth?There are similarities, to be sure. Let's call them inspirations -- like the mood lighting on the submarines and the swelling choral music in both movies. But, hey, if a formula works, let's confirm the missile launch and go go go!"Crimson Tide" has a different plot, and after that deja vu feeling leaves you it's gripping in a more intense way. While "The Hunt for Red October" felt like a breathless video game, "Crimson Tide" has a more claustrophobic and desperate sense of what's at stake: nuclear war. Even a routine missile drill aboard the sub has an eerie sense of foreboding.

John Patrick Bedell, whose cross-country odyssey ended in a brief gun battle outside the Pentagon on Thursday night, was a well-educated but troubled student of science, economy and society who "had gone off the deep end" and believed that the United States was controlled by a sinister organization leading it toward a new dark age, according to friends and Internet postings attributed to him. Bedell, 36, who was shot and killed by Pentagon security...

This just in: Tim Donaghy , who bet on games while working with gamblers, insists he didn't fix any. That's the best one since "I never inhaled." In all of Donaghy's attempts to shift the blame to others, get a lighter sentence or sell his book, the things he said in his interview with "60 Minutes" are the most incredible yet. By comparison, his charges that fellow referees were biased or crooked were at least imaginable - although no one has corroborated a single specific, including the gamblers Donaghy worked with.

Shannon Twenter bowed one arm into the shape of a handle, tipped over far to one side, and made like a little beer stein, short and stout. Inside the Riverside Park Pool, the 19-member Milkmaid Brigade from Lichtenstein mimic her every movement as best they can while treading water. Then, on cue, the milkmaids began simultaneously backstroking, a few with yellow scarf "pigtails" trailing behind them. It was almost time for the Flurry Family to crash-land in Peru after trips to the Russian Gulag and Japan, and the milkmaids didn't want to delay their plane.

Reading War and Peace, the classic 19th-century novel by Leo Tolstoy about life in Russian society during the Napoleonic era, has been described by some as an arduous undertaking. Turning the nearly 1,500-page epic into an hourlong water ballet, though? No problemski. If you go War and Fleas will premiere at a hot dog and beer benefit at Riverside Park's pool at 5:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $20. All other performances are $8. They will be at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday at Riverside and at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. July 28 and 29 at Patterson Park's pool.

"There's nothing not fun about it," Scott Wolfson, a Germantown news photographer, says of tiki culture. But this can be serious fun. Wolfson and his wife, Jen, spent $12,000 transforming their basement into a Polynesian-flavored "immersion environment" - and he now has his eye on the backyard. If you'd like to try sticking a toe into the tiki waters, here are a few possibilities: Festivals: Hukilau will be held June 14-17 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

IT'S UNFORTUNATE that people at the state Department of Juvenile Services and with the early intervention program Community Conferencing Center cannot resolve their own differences. They should try again. DJS praises the Baltimore-based center's work, which takes youthful troublemakers headed for court (and worse) and places them in a circle of victims, family and community where a mediator helps resolve their problems. The department sends about 50 children each year to the conferencing center; city police send another 40, kids diverted even before they get to DJS. School administrators, neighborhood residents and others also refer children to the program, which seeks not only to solve today's problems but to lessen the chances that kids will fall into the "deep end" - DJS detention, monitoring or confinement.
