Jerry Shapiro, a 78-year-old pharmacist from Los Angeles, is at the top of the list of Californians now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, but more than a month after the state began inoculations, he has yet to receive one. Shapiro said he has spent hours calling multiple health agencies and making fruitless computer searches, an experience familiar to many people across the United States, as the days-old administration of President Joe Biden races to bring the country's slow, chaotic vaccine rollout up to speed. The United States is the nation hardest-hit by COVID-19, with 24.51 million cases and 409,987 deaths by early Friday morning.

A version of this story about “Sun Children” first appeared in the International Film Issue of TheWrap’s awards magazine. The films of director Magid Magidi have represented Iran at the Oscars more than the work of any other director — six times in total, beginning with the 1998 nominee “Children of Heaven.” Like that movie, his latest film, “Sun Children,” focuses on young people — in this case, a group of street kids and child laborers who do jobs around the city and are kept under the control of men who only pretend to be benevolent. At 2020’s Venice Film Festival, teen actor Rouhollah Zamani won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for an emerging performer for his performance as a desperate kid who sees a way out when his boss tells him to locate treasure that’s been hidden beneath a local cemetery. But the only way to reach the tunnels that lead to that treasure is by infiltrating a special school for at-risk children — a ploy that slowly starts to change his outlook.

All of my movies have been about children, and the problem of working children is one that interests me now. I’ve had it in my heart, and I’ve been waiting for an occasion to work on a film about the abuses that they are living. In Iran now, we are surrounded by countries that are very vulnerable, and we have so many immigrants, especially from Afghanistan but also from Pakistan and Iraq — and they are in dire straits financially, psychologically, emotionally. And of course, we have Iranian kids, too. How did you find the kids you cast in your movie, and how did you get such terrific performances from them? One of the main challenges was to find the kids, as you can imagine, because I wanted to have working children. Finding them in these communities was really a hard task. It took months to find them, and I interviewed so many of them. But I’m very happy with the result — I have to admit that these kids were impressive beyond my imagination. Once you choose the right kids, 50% of your work is done. The rest comes from experience. I’ve been working with children for 25 or 26 years, so I know how to direct them and how to handle them. Also Read: Oscars International Entries, 2020: The Complete List Can a movie like this change people’s perceptions of a problem like child labor? Definitely. I’m a firm believer of the influence that art can have on a society. Even now, we are dealing with corona and we can’t have public screenings, but even considering all these problems, I think the film has had the influence I wanted. Already in my own country, people are coming forward to contribute to construction of special schools for these kids. If we don’t make the kids’ lives easier, if they don’t get educated, we are destroying our own future. Read more from the International Film Issue here.

New first lady Jill Biden took an unannounced detour to the U.S. Capitol on Friday to deliver baskets of chocolate chip cookies to National Guard members, thanking them “for keeping me and my family safe” during President Joe Biden's inauguration. “I just want to say thank you from President Biden and the whole, the entire Biden family,” she told a group of Guard members at the Capitol. “The White House baked you some chocolate chip cookies," she said, before joking that she couldn't say she had baked them herself.

The United States will review the peace agreement reached with the Taliban last year, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan told his Afghan counterpart in a phone call on Friday, according to a White House statement. Under a February 2020 deal between the United States and the Taliban, U.S. forces are to leave Afghanistan by May 2021 in exchange for counter-terrorism guarantees.
The Virginia Senate appears likely to censure a GOP state senator whose public apology fell flat after she had defended those who stormed the U.S. Capitol. Sen. Amanda Chase, a hardcore acolyte of former President Donald Trump, sought to head off a censure resolution Friday by giving a floor speech declaring she was “completely horrified” by the Jan. 6 insurrection and condemned the violence at the Capitol. “If I have offended any of you in this room, because I am very passionate about the Constitution, I apologize,” said Chase, who is running for governor.
Between 150 and 200 National Guard deployed to Washington, D.C., to provide security for President Joe Biden's inauguration have tested positive for the coronavirus, a U.S. official said on Friday. The U.S. government imposed unprecedented security measures in the city following the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump, including fences topped with razor wire and checkpoints manned by National Guard. The official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the number of National Guard troops who tested positive could rise but was still a small fraction of the more than 25,000 troops deployed in city over the past few days.

MGM on Thursday announced what has been expected for weeks: The 25th James Bond film, “No Time to Die,” is moving again from April to October 2021. That kicked off a new wave of postponements of major Hollywood titles: Universal moved Tom Hanks film “Bios” from April to August; Sony delayed five of its upcoming films, including “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” and “Peter Rabbit 2;” and Disney pushed at least three films from its spring slate, including “The King’s Man.” For studios, the reality has set in that the coronavirus vaccine will not be rolled out quickly enough to reopen the roughly two-thirds of North American movie theaters that remain shuttered because of the pandemic. And that means holding off on unspooling any big titles to mostly dark theaters. “The news that there wasn’t a solid vaccination plan in place when the new administration arrived is just confirmation that spring was too optimistic a timeframe for releasing films again,” Boxoffice analyst Shawn Robbins said. “It’s just a matter of time before we see the rest of the April slate move,” he added, mentioning the John Krasinski sequel “A Quiet Place Part II” that Paramount still has slated for release on April 23....Read original story ‘No Time to Die’ Sets Off Another Round of Big Movie Delays – When Will Box Office Recover?
