    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 20, 2000 -- Didn't get enough of Ben Affleck in "Boiler Room"? Well, not to worry, for said heartthrob actor pretty much achieves multiplex ubiquity this Friday with the much-delayed bowing of "Reindeer Games." In the John Frankenheimer-directed flick, Affleck plays an ex-con, fresh out of the slammer, who's coerced by his ex-cellmate (Gary Sinise) to pull one last heist on the night before Christmas -- which explains the scene in the trailer where a bunch of Santa Cla

    SANTA MONICA, CALIF., Feb. 6, 2000 -- A call to teen-age girls and middle-age men -- Leonardo DiCaprio and Annabel Chong are coming to theaters this week. That's right.

    'Traffic' HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 13, 2000 -- Not bad for a little film that came out of nowhere -- and another ensemble film that has yet to have a wide release. The critical favorite and hardly seen "You Can Count on Me" and director Steven Soderbergh's "Traffic" were among the winners of the 2000 New York Film Critics Circle Awards announced today. "You Can Count on Me" garnered a best actress nod for Laura Linney and took best screenplay for scribe Ken Longergan. Soderbergh continued his winning

Synopsis
Portrait of baseball's first Jewish star. Bronx-born Hank Greenberg's achievements during the "Golden Age of Baseball" in the 1930s and '40s rivaled those of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. He also helped break down the barriers of discrimination in American sports and society. Greenberg was a beacon of hope to millions of American Jews who faced bigotry during the Depression and WWII. Tall (6'4"), handsome and uncommonly good-natured, Greenberg became "the baseball Moses," an icon for everyone from Walter Matthau to Alan Dershowitz.
