“Cloud Atlas” Meets Moderate Acclaim

I revere the fiction writer David Mitchell, whose 2004 book, “Cloud Atlas,” is the basis for the new movie starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. The flick just premiered at Toronto, to an ovation and some excellent (though not unanimously so) reviews. But I suspect the flick is too sprawling and complex to figure much in the Oscar sweepstakes. Still, I’m very keen to see it.
