EDITOR’S PICKS: What’s inspiring Tyrone this week

The Goodbye Girl (1977)
Director: Herbert Ross

A struggling off-Broadway actor (Richard Dreyfuss, excellent) moves in with a former dancer (Marsha Mason) and her precocious tween daughter (Quinn Cummings) in the wake of her married lover’s sudden departure. Written Neil Simon and deftly directed by Ross, it’s a highly enjoyable and sympathetic look at how friendship can bloom into romance under the strangest of circumstances. Well-acted (Dreyfuss nabbed an Oscar), frequently humorous and compassionate, The Goodbye Girl wins you over with it’s clear-eyed exploration of human relationships, loneliness, and the art of picking up the pieces.

Cabbie Chronicles
Creators: Alison Latchman and Anieph Latchman

TV J has decided to inject their Friday night lineup with a fresh dose of home-bred humour, attractively packaged in the vessel of Cabbie Chronicles, a witty and hilarious animated series which follows a much put-upon cab driver and his batch of colourful customers (like the painfully funny Fluffy) as they traverse the hot city streets.
