The challenge in bringing the film to audiences is to communicate that. After an auspicious Telluride Film Festival premiere earlier this month, which sparked early Oscar talk, Larson, Abrahamson and Donoghue spoke with The Times about making their unusually intimate movie — and the disorienting experience of introducing it into the cacophony of Oscar season. Larson, who had been given a T-shirt with an Oscar on it at a film academy party the night before, is aware that she is now the focus of a new level of attention. I was so upset.

In certain theaters, audiences reveal that they are the arbiters of taste and politics.

A young mother and her two children were held captive inside their Pickering home by up to five masked men, Durham police said Tuesday. The woman, 27, told police she had just returned home Sunday evening with her month-old son at around 7 p. The woman alleged that the two men forced their way inside the home and located her eight-year-old son. The family was forced into the basement and made to kneel in a corner while the alleged bandits bound their hands and covered their faces, police said in a news release. Police say the suspects threatened to kill the woman and her two sons and demanded to know where the family kept their jewels and money.
