Mavis is electrified with a new project: she will return to her hometown, with all its pathetic contemptible losers, and break up her ex’s marriage – because they are clearly fated to be together. Theron makes a superb sociopath, even scarier than in Monster, because of her incomplete touch of satirical self-knowledge and also, I think, because of the seductively husky low voice.

Harmeet Dhillon, 48, a senior Republican leader from California, interviewed with Attorney General Jeff Sessions last week, The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday. Chandigarh-born Dhillon had opened the second night of the Republican Convention in Cleveland in July by delivering a Sikh prayer. If nominated by President Donald Trump, San Francisco-based Dhillon would replace another Indian-American Vanita Gupta to the position in the Department of Justice.
