Give it up for my favorite red-headed chanteuse, debuting “Ophelia” (among five other classics) on KCRW’s legendary radio show. Tori is on the road now—on the west coast and slowly making her way out east and then on to Europe!

Ok, “girl power” is not new territory for Barrymore, and it is nice to see her breaking into the directorial boys club, but after a career-altering performance in Grey Gardens, this is what she has to offer?

But it is Drew Barrymore and she can be extremely charming. I’m torn.

And Peter Sarsgaard’s dodgy English accent aside, the supporting cast looks killer: Cara Seymour, Olivia Williams, Dominic Cooper, Rosemund Pike, Sally Hawkins, the dynamic Emma Thompson and the always-underrated Alfred Molina (what does this man need to do to get an Oscar nom?). This is a real no-brainer: essential fall cinema.
