With no parties to attend on this crisp Sunday, we’re off to spend the day indoors catching up on culture. David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross is in previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway, with Al Pacino in a whole new role—he made young dynamo Ricky Roma famous with his film performance, but now assays the role of crumbling old Jack Lemmon. Meanwhile, Tom Hanks returns on-camera after producing just about every HBO historical flick with Cloud Atlas, a film in which he plays, among other characters across time, space and good sense, an Asian gangster. That is, if the perplexing trailer is to be believed!
