Curtain: The December newspaper movie of the month
We're still in the holiday spirit, so we'll tout "Michael," a sweet 1996 Nora Ephron film about a cynical Chicago reporter who heads out of town to interview an angel. So why would we endorse a movie with an extremely low and unrealistic view of reporting? Well, it has John Travolta, William Hurt, Andie MacDowell and a Jack Russell terrier going for it. Besides, how could we ignore the Interstate sign reference to "Schaumburg" as the group returns from Iowa?
