Theater review: Footloose

When Footloose came out of Hollywood in 1984, there were a few things in the film to explain why it remained a marketable brand long enough for the original screenwriter, Dean Pitchford, to adapt it for the Broadway stage in 1998. Most important were the hits, "Let's Hear It for the Boy" and the title tune composed and performed by Kenny Loggins.

Movie Review: 'Love is Strange'

There are big-screen actors who are splendid in movie after movie, whose work nearly always elevates a project and its scenes to at least a slightly higher level of quality or authenticity, but who, for one reason or another, never quite ascend to the lofty level of marquee star. John Lithgow excelled in The World According to Garp , Terms of Endearment, Footloose, 2010, Harry and the Hendersons, and Shrek -- to say nothing about his hilarious antics as the lead in television's "3rd Rock from the Sun."

Larkin, 15, moved from Seattle, Wash.
