  Shawn Stone, the Arts Editor of Metroland, lets us know what is coming to area stages and screens this week.

  In Pictures at a Revolution, Mark Harris turned the story of the five movies nominated for Best Picture in 1967 into a landmark work of cultural history, a book about the transformation of an art form and the larger social shift it signified.

In his new book, Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and The Second World War, he achieves something larger and even more remarkable, giving us the untold story of how Hollywood changed World War II, and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the prism of five film directors caught up in the war: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens.

  Nobody knows movies like Thelma Adams. So, we wanted to talk with her about this coming Sunday night’s Academy Awards and find out her thoughts on possible winners and losers on film’s biggest night.

She is an Oscarologist and has been the Yahoo! Movies Contributing Editor as well as the film critic at Us Weekly for eleven years, following six years at the New York Post. She has twice chaired the New York Film Critics Circle. Currently she’s the Film Editor at ZEALnyc.

She is also author of the terrific novel, Playdate.
