Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” this time with Richard Gere, is apparently not putrid…Oh, Edie! They’re re-releasing “Grey Gardens” in cinemas. Television: If you’re still watching, on Friday there’s a new “Glee” episode about Sue “Jane Lynch” Sylvester…Don’t despair that Masterpiece is following up “Downton” with “Mr. Selfridge,” starring the dreadful Jeremy Piven: next up, in April, is the superb “Wolf Hall.” Music: “Piece by Piece,” the new album by the wonderful Kelly Clarkson, shot straight to the top. Books: Two new memoirs well worth your consideration, “I Left It On The Mountain,” by Kevin Sessums; and “Bettyville,” by George Hodgman. Sports: Are the Mets for real this year? Finally: “Every time a friend succeeds, I die a little.” — Gore Vidal
