Kate Winslet has been making a name for herself in movies in which the directors have been spreading their visionary wings.First came last year's "Heavenly Creatures," the astonishing true story about two young, outcast women in New Zealand whose bond became so ferociously impermeable that they were willing to resort to murder to keep it intact. That film was by Peter Jackson, who previously had created hilarious splatterfests such "Dead Alive" and "Meet the Feebles."Now Ms. Winslet is causing an even larger stir in "Sense and Sensibility," for which the film's star, Emma Thompson, wrote the adaptation of the Jane Austen novel, and in which Taiwanese director Ang Lee ("Eat Drink Man Woman," "The Wedding Banquet")

Starring Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes. Directed by Stephen Daldry. Released by the Weinstein Co. $29.95, ** 1/2 ( 2 1/2 STARS) Since Kate Winslet won her best actress Oscar for The Reader, the party line has been that it was some sort of career achievement award, given not so much for her work in this film as for all the other great films she's starred in over the years. That's nonsense. While the movie itself has some problems, none of them stems from Winslet's performance. As a sullen Berlin streetcar conductor who begins a sexual relationship with a teenager, for reasons that are both more and less than they at first seem, Winslet again demonstrates why she's earned the tag as one of her generation's greatest actresses.

Give this to The Holiday: It lives up to its title. The writer-producer-director, Nancy Meyers, who last created the delightful Something's Gotta Give, knows how to throw a yuletide bash. Beautiful people in beautiful places: That's part of her formula. It certainly is the come-on here, with Cameron Diaz as Amanda, an L.A. movie-trailer tycoon who splits with an unfaithful film composer (Edward Burns) right before the holidays and decides that a house-swap with a gal 6,000 miles away is just the ticket to recovery.

I'VE been tempted toward bulimia many times. That's because, like many other women, I take my cues from Hollywood. But with Kate Winslet in "Titanic," Hollywood is finally giving a beauty with an imperfect body a prominent role -- a romantic lead. And now she has been nominated for a best actress Oscar.But poor Kate! Just when she thought she was making the movie that would catapult her to stardom's greatest heights, all that people could talk about was how fat she looked.Review after review of "Titanic" was consumed by rantings of the zaftig redhead's moon-pie face and ballooning curves.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind wants to be a bittersweet comedy about erotic loss and memory loss. But it doesn't have the heart or brain. It does have an idea with so many clever compartments that audiences can unload their emotional baggage into it. And that may be enough to make it a critical and financial hit. At the movie's core is a company, Lacuna, that wipes selected memories from its customers. Joel Barish (Jim Carrey) has no knowledge of Lacuna's existence until he stumbles upon a card that reads "Clementine Kruczynski has had Joel Barish erased from her memory.

WASHINGTON - It may be the ultimate weight loss plan. No diet, no exercise, no surgery, no pills. Just a little digital wizardry. Point and click here, point and click there, and unwanted pounds melt magically away - from your photographed image, that is. This is what the British edition of GQ magazine recently did, altering photographs of actress Kate Winslet - without her knowledge or permission, she says - to give her that svelte look common to...

It's almost worth the price of admission to "A Kid in King Arthur's Court" just to see the seven-minute Mickey Mouse short that precedes it. In "Runaway Brain," which Disney calls the first Mickey-centric short in 42 years, the rodent is back in perfect, bouncy shape, still wooing Minnie and courting trouble.This Jekyll-and-Hyde story transports Mickey's gentle brain into a towering monster and turns his little oval body into something like a rabid sewer rat. On a modern movie screen with digital sound, the little mouse grows almost as huge as the new Disney-ABC monolith.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards may not have the stature of its older cousin, but it could prove a marvelous barometer of what to expect when the Oscars are handed out March 25. The seventh annual awards ceremony, to be broadcast live beginning at 8 Sunday night on TNT, honors acting in the movies and TV. But because the Actors (as the SAG awards are called) are handed out so close to the Academy Awards, and because the winners of both have often been identical, the movie half of the SAGs receives the greater attention.
