Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “August: Osage County” isn’t a patch on the stage version, but the cast makes it worth seeing. The holiday movies people are enjoying most: “Saving Mr. Banks,” “Frozen,” and “American Hustle.” Television: On Friday, “Marvin Hamlisch: What He Did For Love” premieres on PBS. Gear up by watching Streisand’s tribute to Hamlisch at this year’s Oscars. On Sunday, CBS airs the Kennedy Center honors. Music: Neil Young’s “Live at the Cellar Door” is finding fans — and Neil is touring. Books: Amazing that a novel as literary as Donna Tartt’s “The Goldfinch” is selling so well. Sports: As long as the Cowboys don’t make the NFL playoffs, I’m happy. Finally: I think we all deserve a pat on the back for making it through another Christmas.
