Zemeckis’ ‘The Witches’ heads to HBO Max for Halloween
The Robert Zemeckis adaptation of “Roald Dahl’s The Witches” has found a new home on HBO Max this month just in time for Halloween. Warner Bros. said Friday that “The Witches” will debut on the subscription streaming service, owned by parent company WarnerMedia, on Oct. 22.

This new version has actor Jahzir Bruno playing the boy who must try to stop the witches from turning the world's children into mice.
Maggie O'Farrell's Shakespearean 'Hamnet' wins Women's Prize
LONDON Maggie OFarrell won the Womens Prize for Fiction on Wednesday for Hamnet, a novel that explores the lives of William Shakespeares often-maligned wife and lost son. OFarrells novel beat finalists including Hilary Mantels Tudor saga The Mirror and the Light and Bernardine Evaristos Booker Prize winner Girl, Woman, Other to the 30,000-pound ($39,000) award. The Northern Ireland-born O'Farrell said she had long been fascinated by Hamnet Shakespeare, who died aged 11 in 1596 likely from the plague. Shakespeare himself is never mentioned by name in Hamnet, which centers on his children and wife Anne Hathaway, called Agnes in the book. OFarrell said Hathaway has been portrayed as an illiterate strumpet because she was uneducated and eight years older than Shakespeare.
Rom-Coms: Are they actually that romantic?
Illustration by Ren RaderRomantic comedies, or rom-coms, have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Rom-coms are lighthearted, humorous crowd-pleasers that always have happy endings in which the male and female protagonists live happily ever after. I have known people who were stalked, and there is nothing romantic about being afraid to leave your house alone or having to get a restraining order. Not only should you not have to concede to a man to make a relationship work, but you dont exactly need a man either. As I said before, I generally like rom-coms, and I think that they have a cherished place in movie culture as feel-good movies to watch on a rainy night.trinitonian.com
