"Empire Falls" Lands on HBO this Sat./Sun.

The two-parter, based on Richard Russo's Pulitzer winning novel, is being hailed (by HBO) as an "event." While I have my doubts as to its being a "Roots" or even a "North and South," I am curious to see how the notable cast, which includes Ed Harris, Helen Hunt, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Paul Newman, will portray the varied characters in the fictional New England town. Stay tuned for my review next week. --Kim
