Holiday Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “The Imitation Game,” with the ubiquitous Benedict Cumberbitch, is at the top of my list… “Horrible Bosses 2” looks…horrible. Television: On Friday, Broadway’s leading perkster, Kristin Chenoweth, gives a concert in her Oklahoma hometown…Now that “Good Wife” is on hiatus, Sundays are all about “The Newsroom.” Music: Bob Dylan’s “The Basement Tapes Complete” is full of goodies…Brighten your day by listening to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’s “Uptown Funk.” Books: Hermione Lee once again shows why she’s the best living biographer in the English language with her life of British writer Penelope Fitzgerald. Sports: For once, Detroit is going into its annual Turkey Day game as the favorite…Can’t believe the Islanders are the best team in New York. Finally: I’m so grateful I don’t have to travel on major holidays. If you are not as lucky as I, stay safe!
