Your Thursday: A Selective Guide

Movies: The trailer for the remake of “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” doesn’t have me believing that Ben Stiller will out-daydream the original Mitty, Danny Kaye. Television: Tonight’s PBS documentary, “Life and Death in Assisted Living,” might have you think twice about putting a parent in such a facility. Books: The reissue of Nancy Mitford’s “Frederick the Great” will delightfully make your acquaintance with the 18th-century Prussian monarch. Music: The October tour dates just announced for iconic group Neutral Milk Hotel should get indie-rock fans going. Finally: Vermont, where I’ve been this week, is a spectacular state. I’d forgotten.
