Star-studded cast brings heart to new film "Ezra": It’s been said that 90% of directing is just getting the casting right — and it’s safe to say in his latest film "Ezra," director Tony Goldwyn got it 100% right.

The family dramedy from Bleecker Street stars Bobby Cannavale and Rose Byrne as the parents of a young boy with autism, both fighting to do what’s best for their son. Acting legend Robert De Niro also stars in the film, but it’s newcomer William Fitzgerald who steals the show as the title character.


"Les Miserables" at the Fox Theatre: Considering it’s been seen by more than 130 million people around the world, there’s a good chance you already know the story and the music of "Les Misérables." But the cast and crew of the current national tour — which opened at The Fox Theatre on Tuesday night — say now is the perfect time to get reacquainted with the blockbuster musical.

This morning on Good Day Atlanta, we spent some time at the Fox with cast members from the "Les Misérables" national tour, which will remain on the historic Atlanta stage through Sunday before moving on to Tampa.
