Unholy. Rev. Robert L. Brennan was charged Thursday for sexually assaulting a child for three years in the late 1990s.

victim came forward, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced Thursday. “A serial abuser is now behind bars thanks to the brave actions of this young man,” Williams said. Brennan was arrested at his home in Maryland on Wednesday night by Perryville police. He is expected to return to Philadelphia soon. The victim, who claims he was sexually abused between the ages of 11 and 14, said Brennan forced him to engage in both sexual intercourse and oral sex. The man was allegedly abused inside the church’s sacristy, in the priest’s bedroom, in a storage area on parish property and in a movie theater, according to the DA’s office.

Rev. Robert L. Brennan DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE

Williams said the investigation began in January 2013, when the victim reported the abuse to the archdiocese. He added that the archdiocese immediately reported the incident to the district attorney’s office once the victim presented his allegations. Brennan is currently a priest with the Archdio-

cese of Philadelphia, and his duties were restricted shortly after a 2005 Philadelphia grand jury documented numerous allegations of sexual misconduct with other children. Williams said reports of Brennan’s misconduct dates back to at least 1990 and 1991 while he served as principal both of St. Pius X High School and of the parish school at St. Mary’s in Schwenksville. Parents allegedly raised concerns about Brennan’s behavior in both schools. Brennan faces other charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and aggravated indecent assault.

Response

‘Removed from active ministry’ In a statement, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said Rev. Robert L. Brennan was “removed from active ministry in September 2005 following the Grand Jury report issued by the Philadelphia District Attorney.” “He has not been permitted to function as a priest anywhere since that time. A canonical process aimed at his laicization is in progress with the Holy See.”

Council passes extension for minimum wage Greenlit. City Council passed a package on Thursday extending minimum wage standards to subcontractors. City Council unanimously passed legislation on Thursday that would give Council members the power to extend Philadelphia’s 21st Century Minimum Wage and Benefits Ordinance to city subcontractors. The ordinance, first adopted by Philadelphia in 2005, requires employers who are recipients of city leases, contracts or financial assistance to pay their employees a wage of at least 150 percent of the federal minimum wage. But, according to a legal memorandum issued

in May by City Solicitor Shelley Smith, that standard doesn’t currently apply to city subcontractors or sub-recipients of leases or financial assistance, and City Council does not have the authority to compel the city to extend the minimum wage requirement to those workers. That opinion promoted Councilman Wilson Goode Jr. to introduce in June the most recent legislation providing for a change to the city’s Home Rule Charter that would explicitly give City Council the power to extend the minimum wage standards to subcontracted workers. Though Mayor Michael Nutter’s Chief of Staff Everett Gillison said during a committee hearing last week the administration is concerned the legislation’s language could have a “chilling effect” on private developers who receive city financial assistance, as well as on recipients of

What’s next? The proposed charter change giving City Council the authority to extend the minimum wage ordinance will now be included as a ballot question during the next election, leaving the final decision up to the voters. •

Voters can weigh in on the issue during the next municipal election, which is scheduled for May 21.

President Barack Obama on Thursday lashed out at Republican opponents of the health care law he pioneered right ahead of a key deadline for enrollment and vowed that he would stop attempts to get the program bogged down in an ongoing budget stalemate. In a feisty speech at a Washington-area college, Obama defended the 2010 Affordable Care Act against Republican critics who say it is an example of government gone too far. “The Affordable Care

Act is here to stay,” he said. He singled out for ridicule a Republican state lawmaker who said the law is as destructive to personal liberty as the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, which required captured runaway slaves to be sent back to their owners. “Think about that: Affordable health care is worse than a law that let slave owners get their runaway slaves back,” Obama said. “All of this would be funny if it wasn’t so crazy.” The Affordable Care Act is still regarded skeptically by a majority of Americans who worry that it will lead to higher health care costs and cut jobs. It faces a crucial test starting Oct. 1 when Americans begin enrolling in exchanges through which they will be able to buy health insurance.

Online problems

Delay in Spanishlanguage Obamacare sites The Spanish language version of online exchanges to sign up for health care insurance under the Affordable Care Act will not be ready on Oct. 1 but will be ready “sometime in October,” White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday. “The online portion of it, I believe, will come on sometime in October,” Carney said, noting that Spanishlanguage information and assistance will be available by telephone in the meantime, starting on Oct. 1.

House of Representatives Republicans on Thursday refused to give in to President Barack Obama’s demands for straightforward bills keeping the government running beyond Sept. 30

and increasing borrowing authority to avoid an historic default. They said they will seek a one-year delay in the full implementation of the new national health care law known as “Obamacare” in return for raising U.S. borrowing authority by enough to let Treasury borrow through the end of 2014. Even as some senior Republicans predicted there would be no govern-

ment shutdown on Oct. 1 or credit default next month, House Speaker John Boehner warned that his chamber is unlikely to sign off on a government spending bill the Senate is expected to pass in coming days that simply extends current funding. “I do not see that happening,” Boehner told reporters at a news conference after a closed meeting with his rank and file.

For all the campaigning, debating, online articles and on-air interviews about Obamacare, if a person walked down the street asking people what it means to them, the vast majority would say, “I don’t have a clue” or “Beats me” or perhaps “What are you doing out here, Mr. Biden?” At least that’s what the polls suggest. A Wall Street Journal/NBC news sampling found that nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t understand this law. They don’t know how it is going to work, how they’ll fit in, or whether it will cover their Cialis prescription. “Hold on, honey. Let’s not buy the bathtubs yet!” This is one of the most sweeping changes to the government’s social safety net in our lifetimes, and roughly three-quarters of us don’t know what is happening.

Or liberal criticism. Or any sound coming from anyone who wants to reconsider, revamp or re-carpet this massive overhaul of how we get our aspirin. And plenty of people fit that

profile. A CBS/New York Times poll found only 39 percent of voters now favor Obamacare. Just over half disapprove of it, including conservatives who think it goes too far, liberals who think it does not go far enough and independents who just think it is too convoluted to work as advertised. You can hardly blame the White House for wanting to push all those voices aside. To be fair, the president won this fight back when Obamacare was passed by Congress and there is no rule that requires him to get it reapproved now. But there is also no rule that prevents his opponents from trying to make adjustments, especially when so many Americans either don’t like the way this law is headed, or get headaches trying to sort out what it will really mean. Is there a doctor in the house? Who knows?

Interpol issued a wanted persons alert at Kenya’s request on Thursday for a British woman who has been cited by British police as a possible suspect in the attack on a Nairobi shopping mall that killed at least 72 people. The alert was issued as Kenyan police broadened the investigation into the weekend raid by the al Qaida-aligned Somali group al Shabaab — the worst such assault since the U.S. Embassy was bombed in the capital by al Qaida in 1998. Interpol — which has joined agencies from Britain, the United States,

Israel and others in the Kenyan investigation of the wrecked mall — did not say when Nairobi requested a so-called “red alert” notice for Samantha Lewthwaite, 29. The widow of one of the suicide bombers who attacked London’s transport system in 2005 is believed to have evaded arrest two years ago in the port city of Mombasa, where she is wanted in connection with a plot to bomb hotels and restaurants. Police in Mombasa, a tourist hub, said they were also tracking four suspectKilled attackers

ed militants, following the siege of the swanky Westgate mall in Nairobi which militants stormed on Sept. 21 armed with assault rifles and grenades. The mall attack has demonstrated the reach of al Shabaab beyond Somalia, where Kenyan troops have joined other African forces in driving the group out of major urban areas, although it still controls swaths of the countryside. Al Shabaab stormed the high-end mall to demand Kenya pull its troops out, which President Uhuru Kenyatta has ruled out. REUTERS Arrested

Eleven suspects have been arrested in relation to the attack, but it is not clear if any took part.

The International Olympic Committee said on Thursday it had assessed that a Russian law banning “gay propaganda” does not violate its charter and the city of Sochi would be ready to host the 2014 Winter Games. An IOC delegation said after inspecting facilities in the Black Sea resort that, despite flooding this week and work that has turned much of the city into a muddy construction site, the “magnificent” sporting venues were already completed. “We often say that there is no time to waste as the clock ticks down to the opening ceremony, and this still stands true,” said Jean-Claude Killy, head of the team that visited Sochi for the last time before the Games begin in February.

Nuke talks

Kerry aims to boost support for US stance in Iran meeting Secretary of State John Kerry sought to bolster support to keep pressure on Iran in nuclear talks with world powers on Thursday even as Iran’s new president pressed a diplomatic charm offensive at the United Nations. The meeting involved a very rare encounter between top officials of the United States and Iran. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met with Kerry as well as diplomats from Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany at a session aimed at jump-starting efforts to resolve a decade-long standoff over Iran’s nuclear program. Kerry said he looked forward to a “good meeting,” but he would not specify what Iran should do to show a desire to address concerns about its nuclear program. REUTERS

A grieving mother fights Finding meaning. The mother of a slain teen used his death to create a dialogue for peace in a troubled neighborhood. Clementina Chery had a choice to make shortly after her 15-year-old son was gunned down in crossfire between gangs in Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood. “For me, the anger and violence was there,” she said. “I didn’t want to go that route. I wanted to go on the path less traveled.” Chery chose the path of peace following the death of her son, Louis Brown, and founded the Dorchester-based Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. Her son was killed in 1993 as he walked to a teens-against-gang-violence event one afternoon. It was her son’s death, she said, that woke her up. “My anger was there, my search for revenge was there, but yet who was I going to take revenge out on? Someone who looked just like me? Someone who looked just like my son? So I had to channel my pain and my anger in a way that would be more about rebuilding the community,” she said. The Peace Institute fo-

Unsolved case

Paulette Page haunted by mystery of who killed her son Early last month, two young black men were killed by gun violence. The location of their death — Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn — drew some attention because over

the past several years, that neighborhood has grown increasingly expensive and seemingly safer. According to police reports, around 11:26 p.m. on Aug. 9, Anti-Crime Unit officers inside Fort Greene Park heard gunshots and saw a black male who appeared to be in his late teens and was wearing red shorts and a white

baseball cap running in their direction. The officers saw the individual waving a gun and firing multiple shots in the air. They chased him but lost sight of him outside of the park. Police said they then received a 911 call around 11:30 p.m. reporting that a person had been shot in Fort Greene Park near the

basketball court by Myrtle Avenue. Police arrived to find two victims, Jahmal Page and Javon Anthony Earl-Govon, both 21 years old. Both men were facedown on the ground, each shot once in the head. Investigators believe the young men may have been part of a group of friends that had some sort of physical altercation

Primary prevention such as peace education and emotional literacy are areas that Chery believes will provide long-term tools for young people and help communities more than “Band-Aid solutions.” For 17 years, the Institute has also put on the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace through Dorchester.

for peace in Boston with the shooter prior to this fatal double shooting. Page’s mother, Paulette Page, described her son as “a fun-loving person” who played football, rapped, “was into fashion,” and “liked music, entertaining people [and] partying.” He and Earl-Govon were there with a group of five other friends for a cookout that had carried over

to later in the evening. Jahmal was her only child, Paulette said. She said she that has no idea why he would have been a target and anyone would have hurt him. “I don’t know what to say,” she said. “He didn’t have any enemies out here.” Paulette said that her son was not involved with

any gangs and that he had decided to go live in North Carolina with her brother in the fall. Her brother was going to help him apply to schools. Shortly after the shooting, there was a candlelight vigil on Washington and St. Johns, where Paulette’s mother lives. “That’s where he grew up,” Paulette explained.

“That’s where all his friends and everything are.” Paulette has had no updates from police regarding the investigation into her son’s death. She said she doesn’t understand how there were so many people at the barbecue but there are currently no leads on the identity of the shooter.

“There were so many people around and nobody saying anything,” she said. “I mean, I’m pretty sure that somebody saw something, but they’re not really saying who, what or whatever. … I don’t know [why], maybe because they may be scared of the person, or persons. I don’t know.” DANIELLE TCHOLAKIAN

Painful memory

Ralphiee Colon, brother of gun victim: ‘I’m hurt every day’ Melanie Colon was one of Philadelphia’s 331 homicide victims last year. The young mother, then 22, went missing from her North Philly home on May 8, 2012. Her body was found less than a week later, just before Mother’s Day, in a wooded area near Tacony Creek Park. Like the vast majority of the city’s crime-related fatalities, she had been gunned down, shot six times at close range. Melanie’s family still struggles with her death, and with the fact that her killer has not been

brought to justice. “It has got a little easier. It’s almost about to be two years,” said Melanie’s brother Ralphiee Colon, 18. “But the emotions are still there. I’m hurt every day thinking about it.” He believes his sister would still be with him were it not for the firearms flooding the city’s streets. “She would still be here because them guns is powerful — they can take people out fast,” he said. “I think that’s the easiest way you can kill somebody, is to pull the trigger. And once you pull that trigger, you can’t reverse it back.” Ralphiee’s loss was compounded this year by the death of his mother, Zoraida Miranda, on May

3.

“I see my family hurt and I can’t do nothing. I can’t bring happiness back to them, just like, vice versa, they can’t bring happiness back to me. And it hurts them to see me hurt.” Ralphiee Colon

“I’ve already accepted the fact [Melanie] is gone and I have to live with this for the rest of my life, but, really, losing my mom, it affected me a lot,” he said. Ralphiee is now grieving the loss of two family members, compounded by the pain of watching his father, stepmother, older brother and young nephew struggle with their wounds as well. ”It’s got to a point where everybody keeps their emotions to themselves,” he said. “Now, we try to talk to each other, but we can’t. I’d rather keep my stuff to myself. I talk sometimes, but it’s kind of hard.” He is also dealing with Melanie’s son, Joshua, now 5, asking questions

about his mother. “He talks about Melanie more, and he knows she’s dead. He doesn’t understand the full situation of her getting shot, but he understands she passed away. But he knows that she’s always with him.” Ralphiee said. Ralphiee’s primary motivation is keeping Melanie’s memory alive, he said, and searching for answers in her slaying, partly by maintaining a Facebook tribute page that has 10,000 “likes.” “At the end of the day, it’s what I have to do. I’m OK — I don’t want to kill myself because if I kill myself, what would that do? I will go to hell, and I won’t see my sister and my mom. So I’ve got to keep going.” ALEX WIGGLESWORTH

Post-meltdown, the Followill boys are back in town to sling some “Mechanical Bull.”

THE KINGS’ WILD RIDE The Kings are, from left, Jared, Caleb, Nathan and Matthew Followill. / TAYLOR HILL, GETTY IMAGES

At Kings of Leon’s pinnacle, they were rock ‘n’ roll personified: a multiplatinum fourth album, “Only by the Night,” in 2008, lingerie models and rumored riders of excess that read like a pharmaceutical shopping list. Their 2011 mega-tour should have undisputedly confirmed the Followills — brothers Caleb, Jared and Nathan, and cousin Matthew — as rock’s royal family. Instead, it ended in self-inflicted regicide, when frontman Caleb delivered this gutter-style mid-show abdication in Dallas: “I’m gonna go backstage, and I’m gonna vomit; I’m gonna drink a beer, and I’m gonna come back out and play three more songs.” He never returned; the tour was over. But after a two-year hiatus, the Kings are back to reclaim the throne. The Nashville-based band’s sixth album, “Mechanical Bull” — which dropped Tuesday — seems a return

to form, with all the frank storytelling lyricism of their early albums. Bassist Jared says he actually knows how to ride a mechanical bull. “I did one at this party called the Neon Carnival party in California at Coachella,” he says. “I’m pretty sure I’m the only one that rode it correctly with one hand in the air.” Was the hedonism of your early days a rebellion against your religious upbringing? Probably not consciously, but it was definitely like an animal that had been let out of a cage and allowed

to roam free. I feel like every single person I know who grew up in the United Pentecostal Church, if they ever get out of it, they go crazy for at least a few years. You’ll see them out and they’ll either have ridiculous hair or ... will dress so inappropriately. Your love of rock music from the early ages stands in stark contrast to church music. Did it form part of your escapism? Yeah, it was almost in a sense like when you said, “Was the hedonism part of a rebellion?” That wasn’t so much consciously as maybe rock music felt

rebellious to us. Because growing up, we weren’t allowed to listen to anything. Our parents would let us listen to music from the ’50s and ’60s because a lot of the themes were toned down. But we would hear stuff every once in a while. I remember hearing sneak peeks of Nirvana and stuff at friends’ houses ... and thinking, “Holy sh—, that is awesome!” Was the 2011 meltdown drug- or alcohol-related? People think we were huge druggies — we did acid one time. People would see us and be like, “Man, those guys must

be on acid. … They’re on MDMA.” Stuff like that. We would try stuff once to see what it was like and be like, “No, I don’t like that. I would rather smoke weed and drink beer.” Tell us about that one time on acid then? It was awful. There’s a good reason I only did it once. Where was it? A U2 after-party that ended up being a masquerade ball, which still scars me to this day. It was the scariest place I’ve ever been. Except for when we walked in, it was a masquerade ball where all the masks started turning into monsters. We said, “That was the worst idea!” I don’t think I will ever, ever do it again. At that point, I thought I might repent and go back to church and quit the band.

All they need is Grouplove Friends with benefits. Hard work is easy when with such close pals. The first time Grouplove performed “together” they actually performed completely separately, according to bassist/vocalist Andrew Wessen. The five members of the L.A.-based indie band met at an artist commune in the summer of 2008, high up in the mountains in the tiny village of Abdou in Crete, where they instantly bonded. “Somehow, out of all the crazy artists out there, we found each other,” says Wessen. At the end of the summer, the commune

threw a music festival, at which all five members performed individually. That was the last time they performed apart. Hell, that was the last time they’ve been apart. Talking to Wessen, one sentiment is repeated: “This is all we have.” Grouplove, as their name implies, operate as a single unit, their rela-

tionships with each other so symbiotic that you get the idea that they might not function apart. That commitment to unity is reflected in their sophomore album, “Spreading Rumours,” which they recorded in a rented house in the Hollywood Hills this past summer. The house served as both their temporary home studio and, for

10 weeks, they rarely left. “We worked all day and night,” says Wessen. “I don’t think I left the house in 10 weeks more than four or five times, literally. ... We just lived and breathed that album. It was crazy. But I think that plays into the whole thing that all we have is each other.” There’s that refrain again. But while it might

sound trite, watching the band perform — their live shows are charged with buoyant, jubilant energy — it’s pretty clear that Grouplove’s dynamic is such that it’s not just that all they have is each other, it’s that all they need is each other. The band has been on the road for three straight years and it’s had an unde-

niably fracturing effect on their relationships outside the band. But Wessen says he isn’t sure when they’ll take a break — if ever. “I think we’re a little bit out of our minds for not taking any time off ... but that was a conscious choice,” he says. “We were all just like, ‘Well, f— it, let’s just go.’ ... I mean, we’re not all buying new cars and houses. I’m still driving a 1989 Buick and checking my bank account. ... We haven’t quite made it yet.”

Emo. Saves the Day’s Chris Conley isn’t through being cool just yet. Emo isn’t dead. At least not according to Saves the Day’s Chris Conley, who’s been in the business of making emotive, yank-onyour-exposed heart strings music for just about two decades. In fact, if you ask Conley, emo is making a resurgence. “[There are] a lot of new bands coming along that have that same spirit, that authenticity, and honesty and good songwriting,” he says. “You see a lot of bands coming up that have that sound, like they listen to music of the ‘90s now, so maybe it goes in waves. I think that honest music is making a comeback.” As for any residual stigma associated with the most angsty genre around, he thinks that it’s on the decline. “I think some of the negative connotations might be disappearing,” he says. “I think that the phase of the haircuts is probably over, where the band’s MySpace profile picture mattered more than their first demo. I think people are reaching out for the real groups again.” If anyone would know, it would be Conley. The only remaining founding member of one of emo’s definitive bands, he’s stuck with it through eight studio albums and a revolving door of bandmates that’s seen almost

20 members come and go. Conley, who played the cello for seven years as a kid before discovering the guitar, started Saves the Day with his high school buddy Brian Newman. Self-described as an “extremely alienated teenager,” Conley escaped by listening to Zeppelin and fooling around in his garage with Newman. Soon, they’d started a band. All good emo stems from pain, however, and Conley seems more attune to his own existential angst than most. Newman left the band in 2001 and his now a therapist (“coming from emo, that makes sense,” laughs Conley). His abrupt departure left Conley reeling. “When Brian left, that really hurt. That felt like, where is my friend going?,” he recalls. “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do it without him. But once I got over that...it felt like just carrying on as usual.” Conley’s been carrying on ever since. And, despite a marked evolution from very dark, morbid songwriting in the early days to Saves the Day’s justdropped eponymous album, which can almost be described as upbeat, he’s remained true to one constant — honesty in music. “Its just a crazy experience to be alive, it’s actual-

ly overwhelming,” he says. “Our bodies are so fragile and our life is just poised on this vulnerable edge of impending doom. I just felt completely lost. Why do you have to try to be a certain way, just to belong, when maybe we could belong just being ourselves? It’s the enormity of the human experience.” Despite the title of their sophomore album, for Conley, you can’t really stay what you are. “I’m a completely different person [now] and, oddly enough, it was through accepting the enormity of the turmoil that helped me find this peace,” he says. “It’s almost counterintuitive, but it’s like you get thrown in the water, and you think you have to flail around to stay afloat but it’s the opposite. You let go and it is what it is — you are floating.”

Only in our city could we gather together to enjoy a landmark Italian opera about the struggle for independence while surrounded by the physical landmarks of our own nation’s successful bid for independence. On Saturday night, as we are surrounded by Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, Opera Philadelphia presents a free, open-air broadcast of Nabucco, the first great opera by Giuseppe Verdi (Rigoletto, La traviata, Aida). This marks our third year of Opera on the Mall, and the themes of Nabucco are tailor-made for Independence National Historical Park. On its surface, the opera is about the Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar (or Nabucco), who conquered Jerusalem and exiled the Jews in the sixth century BC. But, when it debuted in 1842, the Italians identified the captivity of the Israelites in the opera with their own dominance by Austrian rule. The patriotic chorus “Va, pensiero” quickly became a national anthem of sorts, and Verdi involuntarily became a leading figure in the movement toward a free, united Italy. His personal hero was George Washington, America’s first President whose connection to our city – he presided

In short

‘Rush’ Director: Ron Howard Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl Rating: R

•••••

Chris Hemsworth plays racer James Hunt, with rival Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) in the back. / JAAP BUITENDIJK

Better than NASCAR Racing biopic. “Rush” is one of the good Ron Howard pictures. The playwright and screenwriter Peter Morgan (“The Queen,” “Frost/

Nixon”) has made a career defending the cruel, the pigheaded, the inhuman and the lazy. His latest screenplay, “Rush,” is more of a fun dialectic. It’s about James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), the hedonistic, shaggy-haired Formula One star who won the World Drivers’ Champion-

ship in 1975. But it’s also about his arch-nemesis Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl), who’s ugly, arrogant and very German (i.e., precise and ambitious) with hilariously fake upper teeth. The two characters offer conflicting notions of success and competition, even as they gain hard-

earned mutual respect. As per the title — a better title for this movie than for both the 1991 narc film (and even the band) — it speeds from one unbelievable truth (some slightly exaggerated) to the next, which filmmaker Ron Howard handily over-directs into a feast of smudgy colors and adrenaline junkie montages. (No one could ever follow the individual races, but who goes to races to follow them?) In the final moments, the insufferable Morgan of old shows his face, but by then it’s too late to make an impact.

Paula Patton, center, travels all over the country to meet exes in “Baggage Claim.” / FOX SEARCHLIGHT PICTURES

Also opening ‘Baggage Claim’ Paula Patton plays an unmarried woman who sets off to see if her exes are marriage material. (Spoiler: They’re all horrible grotesques.) ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ The story of beefy precipitation continues — but the film isn’t based on the original novel’s own sequel, the delightfully titled “Pickles to Pittsburgh.”

‘Inequality for All’ Economist Robert Reich cheerfully breaks down how the ever-widening income gap is one of the many things utterly destroying our country. ‘The Trials of Muhammad Ali’ The one born Cassius Clay would beat people up for his country, but he wouldn’t kill them. This doc looks at his perhaps greatest battle: the one to stay out of prison for refusing to serve in Vietnam. MATT PRIGGE

NBC

One of the best actors of his generation, Joseph Gordon-Levitt has long had a sideline making short films and even hosting his own net filmmaking collective, hitRECord. That in no way prepares him for his feature directorial debut, “Don Jon,” a keyed-up cavalcade of Jersey grotesques that’s energetically made and disappointingly, shockingly shallow. It’s hard to believe he’s in it, let alone that he made it. Made up like a diminutive version of the Situation, Gordon-Levitt’s oily Jon has enough sly intelligence to justify (via narration) an empty existence, devoted to working out, hanging out and scoring with “dimes” (girls who get a 10). But no sex is as

fulfilling to him as beating it to Internet porn — even when that girl is played by Scarlett Johansson. Like Jon — as well as his family, led by a wifebeater-clad Tony Danza — Johansson’s Barbara is a barn-door broad caricature with a sketch comedy accent. Barbara is not only a Jersey stereotype, but a female stereotype — one designed by regressive-minded men. If only Jon had a hot older woman — say, the potsmoking, randy widow/ grieving mom played by Julianne Moore — to teach him the difference between crap sex and making really hot love. On one hand, it’s actually genuinely shocking — refreshing, even — where “Don Jon” winds up. Moore is terrific — the only recognizably real person in a film where every other performer acts like they’re in an “SNL” parody of “Saturday Night

••••• Fever.” As far as recent sex addiction films go (“Shame,” “Thanks for Sharing”), it’s the thinnest and most judgmental. But when Moore storms in — more funny than fragile, with shocking reservoirs of dry wit and real sexiness — she loosens it up. It’s a happy ending of the unintended kind: “Don Jon” almost becomes a good movie.

attention to you all the time.” Of course, in her case she might be right — even if the idea still strikes her as odd. “The other thing is, why do you care? You don’t know me,” she says. “It always makes me wonder why anybody cares. I don’t particularly care to know about any person I don’t know, about their romantic life. I mean, I guess we’re all nosy in some way, but it’s something that seems unrelated in my mind. I mean, I know people like celebrities and maybe that gives them something to dream about — I don’t know.”

“Nothing good ever comes out of it. It’s best to avoid it. It gives you an inflated idea of yourself, as well. You suddenly feel like everybody’s paying attention to you all the time.”

That’s not to say Johansson wants any of that content eradicated — or even regulated in any way. “There are no rules, that’s the Internet. There’s no rules. You can’t impose them, then we’d be living in China,” she says. “If you want to have a free country or whatever, you can’t impose any regulations on the Internet.” While pal Gordon-Levitt has directed his own feature, Scarlett Johansson won’t be far behind. “I’m actually directing a film next summer, which is an adaptation of a [Truman] Capote novella called ‘Summer Crossing,’” she says. “It’s something I’ve been working on for what feels like forever. It’s been about six years, and we’re finally going to do it.”

Claudia Puig,

“Don Jon” writer-directorstar Joseph Gordon-Levitt says he wanted Scarlett Johansson as his co-star in part because she herself has been a victim of a certain amount of objectification within pop culture. But while Johansson is happy for the implied compliment, she doesn’t think she’s all that special. “I think that sure, I’ve been a victim — if you want to say — of that as much as anybody else. I don’t feel particularly affected by that more than any other person in the spotlight, I guess,” she says. “But I think it’s something that I’ve used — my own status as a sexiest whatever-youwant-to-call-it or whatev-

er it is, a label you want to put on it. I’ve been able to use it to my advantage while trying to avoid getting pigeonholed as much as possible. I don’t want the work that I do to feel like a reaction to the fact that I’m trying to get away from that.” Speaking of getting away from that, Johansson keeps away from the vast swaths of Internet devoted to her beauty and private life. “I stopped Googling myself,” she admits. “Nothing good ever comes out of it. It’s best to avoid it. It gives you an inflated idea of yourself, as well. You suddenly feel like everybody’s paying

James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus court each other in “Enough Said.” / LACEY TERRELL

Not quite ‘Enough Said’ for Gandolfini Romance. The actor is in top form in one of his last roles but he’s not the only one who shines.

Review ‘Enough Said’ Director: Nicole Holofcener Stars: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, James Gandolfini

Filmmaker Nicole Holofcener (“Lovely & Amazing,” “Please Give”) has carved out a niche making femalecentered dramedies that are deceptively modest, uncommonly insightful and neatly made — often too neat. “Enough Said,” her fifth feature, finds her making a somewhat awkward fusion with a more popular genre: the cringe-inducing depiction of stunted adolescence a la “Bridesmaids” and “Frances Ha.” The difference is the female here is middle-

The ludicrous sets for “Metallica: Through the Never” include lots of death imagery and lasers. / PICTUREHORSE

Barney would find some of the symbolism too inscrutable — and not nearly insane enough. But they have a certain personalized charm that’s purely retro, and purely metal, if not as much as the reliably Spinal Tap-y stage sets, including lasers, hologram gravestones and a crumbling statue of Lady Justice.

er), a successful poet who engages her services and starts unloading about her dreaded ex — a portly, selfeffacing “loser.” Holofcener’s observations are as strong as ever, and the acting is peerless. This is one of Gandolfini’s last performances, and it’s one of his strongest: He’s charming, but you can see him trying to hide the hangdog tendencies that drove Marianne nuts (and may one day drive Eva nuts, too). Louis-Dreyfus is a touch too big for Holofcener’s modest world, but she gives Eva a believability that she’s too infrequently asked to handle. It’s a great dance between two actors who should be, or should have been, in more movies.

The 3-D IMAX Metallica concert movie with the ridiculous subtitle “Through the Never” is not just a concert movie. The main influence is “The Song Remains the Same,” the Led Zeppelin movie that peppers a concert with ridiculous fantasy sequences for each member: Robert Plant as a knight, Jimmy Page scaling a mountain and meeting a wizard. Here, footage of the band (average age: 49) tearing through their hits is peppered with a story, of sorts. Dane DeHaan (born: 1986) plays a young stagehand who stops fistpumping with the crowd to crash a van, run into Occupy Wall Street-style protesters, battle demons and the like. The scenes were written by the band and the film’s director, Nimrod Antal, a genre director (“Vacancy,” “Armored”). They’re both too undefined — even Matthew

When Philly’s own legendary African drum specialist Robert Crowder died in 2012, the Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble was a natural choice to play the memorial service. Along with Crowder’s own Kulu Mele, UAD is one of the hubs of African dance and music in the country. The Painted Bride Art Center’s music curator happened to be at that service, and he instantly decided to program UAD in his next season. It’s about time the Bride caught on. The Camdenbased troupe has been performing for nearly 40 years — right through the worst economic downturn in Camden’s history. “When industry left

Camden, so did the arts community. I believe the lack of arts in Camden is a huge contributor to violence. People don’t have a healthy way to discover and respect their own humanity,� says Robert Dickerson, who founded UAD in 1984 with his wife, Wanda Dickerson. “It becomes harder to pick up a gun and kill someone when

you have some respect for where that person comes from. ... The arts is the best educator.� This Saturday, UAD will kick off the Bride’s new season in a big way, with a parade down Second Street, a series of workshops and a full-fledged performance with more than 50 dancers and musicians. While UAD’s mission is educational, its presentations are anything but dry. Choreographed by Guinean dancer Yalani Bangoura, this weekend’s show is sure to feature the UAD staples: percussion, movement and exuberance. “My goal has always been to teach African Americans the value of their heritage,� explains Dickerson. “I think when people witness performances of this kind, they learn something that no book or classroom can teach them.�

MICHAEL DOUGLAS BEN GABBE, GETTY IMAGES

Michael Douglas didn’t share his birthday with Zeta-Jones Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones share a birthday, but this year they didn’t share it together, according to E! News. Douglas, who turned 69 Wednesday, was still in Los Angeles following his big win at the Emmys Sunday, while Zeta-Jones is believed to have celebrated her 44th birthday in China. The recently separated couple are still “taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.”

Hamm downplays throat surgery Jon Hamm is undergoing throat surgery, but it’s not so bad, he told Jimmy Kimmel during an interview. “I’ve got a polyp on my vocal chord,” Hamm explains. “It’s not as bad as how the National Enquirer reported it, which was that I was coughing up blood and probably have cancer. I was like, ‘That’s good to put out there. Thanks, guys.’”

Daryl Hannah has autism Daryl Hannah, star of “Kill Bill,” “Splash” and pretty much the entire ’80s, is autistic, she has revealed. The actress was diagnosed with autism as a child, and she struggled with “debilitating shyness” throughout her career. She fought to hide her condition from her Hollywood employers, and often refused to give interviews and make promotional appearances, “not because I was above it, but because I was terrified,” she says. Hannah says she’s doing better now. She spends much of her time on environmental activism and has a

boyfriend, a farm and a pet pig. “I’ve learned a couple of things that really would’ve made my life easier if I’d known them 20 years ago,” she told People. “I wasted so much time scared, self-conscious and insecure.” It’s remarkable to hear a star talk so openly about this kind of illness — though autism has become something of a buzzword in the last few years, it’s still surprising to hear a star admit she has it. It seems like only yesterday that celebrities only suffered from two things: exhaustion and dehydration. Metro/Melinda Taub

Lively wants to curate your life

Do you ever think, “You know what my puny little existence needs? A curator.” Well, you’re in luck: Blake Lively wants to direct your life. “It’s launching in a few months and I’m really, really thrilled,” the actress tells British Vogue about her mysterious new company. “It’s about living a one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that. There’s nothing like it out there.” Someone needs to work on her elevator pitch, as that makes no sense whatsoever.

Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and three other “Fury” castmembers were “ordered to go camping together” recently in the English countryside in preparation for the film, according to Us Weekly. “They play soldiers in the same World War II troop, and the director [David Ayer] wanted to make sure they bonded,” a source says.

“So he dropped them in the wilderness — without their cell phones.” I like how “without their cell phones” seems so ominous in this item. Like, how did they live through the night?! They survived a camping trip with no (gasp!) cell phones? What sacrifice! Give all of these men Oscars immediately!

How to play Fill in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1-9. There is no math involved. You solve the puzzle with reasoning and logic.

Use the laws on the books before making new ones Re: ‘Guns in our cities’ investigative series (Metro, week of Sept. 23) The politicians who favor more gun control laws refuse to publicly acknowledge that criminals are not deterred by more legislation. Burdening law-abiding citizens with more fees, licenses and ownership requirements is an infringement of their natural right of self-defense. There are already enough gun laws on the books at both the federal and local levels. Let’s enforce those laws before incorporating new ones. Those who want more control have conveniently forgotten “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” More gun laws, indeed, would be an infringement of that right. JOHN STASNEK, VIA EMAIL

What is the intention of those behind gun con-

trol? Ironically, it is the same of those who are pro-gun. We all want less crime, including violent crime. So the argument becomes how to go about it. One side wants to get rid of the tools of the shooting crime. How come there is no push to ban cars after a drunken driver kills someone? That is the same concept — in that crime, the tool is the car. It seems a little far-fetched to try to ban cars because they might be involved in a drunken driving incident. Focus on the behavior and the criminal. Victims may still be alive had there been stricter punishments and if the state actually forced criminals to be responsible for their actions with tougher penalties Probation will hardly stop a criminal from repeating. Sadly, not all crime could possibly be prevented, but repeat offenses can easily be curtailed. JASON LAVESQUE, VIA EMAIL

What to watch

More to worry about than just Manning Yes, yes — we know all about the mythical No. 18 at quarterback. He’s an all-time great. But let’s take a look at some other areas of concern for the Eagles and things they can do to counteract what the Broncos do so well.

1

Mike Vick is still fast enough to beat most defenders — and he doesn’t plan on slowing down Sunday afternoon. / GETTY IMAGES

Eagles got need, need for speed NFL. Birds don’t plan on slowing down tempo, even though it might help keep Broncos off the field. Slow the tempo? Banish the thought. While some are speculating that it might be in the Eagles’ best interest to take their foot off the gas in Sunday’s game, players and coaches want no part of that. They fear a slower pace — despite the possibility of keeping Peyton Manning on the sideline a little longer — would disrupt the Eagles’ rhythm. “That’s not what we do,” Mike Vick said. “We don’t slow down. We don’t try and keep the opposing offense off the field. If that’s coach’s strategy, then we’ll take that into consideration but I doubt we’ll stray from the script.” The script for EaglesBroncos has all the makings of a NASCAR Sprint Cup race. The over/under is set at 58 points — that’s the second-highest total

Peyton Manning has thrown a league-best 12 TDs through only three games so far this season. / GETTY IMAGES You play to win the game

“Obviously you’re playing against one of the all-time greats. I don’t get a feeling from our players that they’re in awe and are going to back pedal and stare at him. I don’t get that feeling from them.” Chip Kelly, Eagles head coach On going up against Peyton Manning and the high-octane Broncos

since 2004. Most, if not all, are expecting a scoring frenzy. The question is, can the Eagles match

the Broncos high-octane offense, which ranks No. 1 in both total yards and points.

“I think we can,” Vick said. “I think for the most part we’ve shot ourselves in the foot and still have had opportunities to score 30-plus points in all three games we’ve played. So the optimism is there. We know what we have. We know what we can do. We know how to execute it. And it’s just all about putting it all together. It’ll come for us at some point.” Coach Chip Kelly isn’t even thinking about matching yard for yard, or point for point. He just knows he needs to score more than them to win the game. For the record, the Eagles rank second in yards and No. 8 in points. “All we need to do is [say] how well do we play on a weekly basis [and do] we score enough points to win a game,” Kelly said. “We don’t compare ourselves to anybody else. At the end of the year, no one pats you on the back because your offense is rated at a certain level. That’s got nothing to do with it.”

MICHAEL GREGER

michael.greger@metro.us

Attack the new guy Chris Clark, who made a few mistakes last week, is the new left tackle (Winston Justice is the backup) in Denver after AllPro Ryan Clady was lost for the season. Eagles would be wise to bring an extra attacker on that side, Manning’s blind side. Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham are two pure pass-rushers that come to mind.

2

Containing Wes Welker You can’t stop him completely, the reliable slot wide receiver is already Peyton’s favorite safety valve. Welker has hauled in 19 balls for 190 yards and four TDs. More importantly, he’s earned Manning’s trust. The key is to bring him down in space and take away those easy crossing routes that the Chiefs exploited last week.

3 SPORTS Bye, Bud!

Report: Baseball commish to retire Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is expected to retire after the 2014 season, according to CBSSports.com. Selig will formally retire on Jan. 24, 2015. The 79-year-old has run the show since after the 1994 strike. “Baseball is the greatest game ever invented, and I look forward to continuing its extraordinary growth and addressing several significant issues during the remainder of my term,” Selig said in a statement.

3

Cool it now Head coach Chip Kelly and Mike Vick say they won’t do it. They won’t slow the tempo down to keep the Broncos’ offense off the field. Why? According to them, it would mess up their rhythm. But if they find themselves down 14-0 in a blink of an eye — which is entirely possible — they are going to have to try it. Otherwise, the Eagles’ defense will be huffing air. The unit is likely to have a first-time starter in there, too. Rookie safety Earl Wolff is poised to make his first NFL start in the secondary in place of the injured Patrick Chung.

Asche: Not all about getting here, it’s about staying here MLB. The Phillies’ third baseman is ďŹ nally impressing teammates and aiming for a full-time job. When Maikel Franco visited Citizens Bank Park last week to accept the Paul Owens Award for being the top minor league player in the Phillies’ organization, the Dominican third baseman was asked about next season. Franco, 21, stated that he plans to win a starting job with the big-league team in 2014. First, the big-hitting, slow-moving Dominican will have to unseat Cody Asche, who has impressed during his month-plus audition. Asche, 23, is hitting .247 with five homers, 22 RBIs and a .731 OPS in 150 at-bats. He’s picked it up considerably over the last month and has played stellar defense. “I play hard,â€? Asche said. “I don’t know any other way to play.â€? That’s why so many are comparing Asche to the uber-intense Chase Utley, who has always walked to the plate with tangible

bad intent. Like Utley, Asche seems in a hurry to get to the plate from the on-deck circle. “I love to hit,� Asche said. “I always have been that way. And it’s extra special to hit in the big leagues.� Asche’s first MLB hit, a dribbler past the pitcher’s mound, sits in a glass case in his locker. “I know I didn’t drill it, but a hit is a hit,� Asche said as he pointed to the ball. “I’m so proud of that hit. There’s no guarantee when you’re in the minors you’ll ever get to the majors to have the opportunity to get that hit. I’m just glad I got here.� His rise from the minors was quick. In 2011, Asche hit .192 in SingleA Williamsport. But he turned it around in Clearwater the following season, while batting .349. “I guess it all happened quickly,� Asche said. “But it’s not just about getting here; it’s about staying as well. I don’t have a job handed to me next year. I have to earn it.�

The Big Piece is coming back. If nothing else, he wants to show Phillies fans there is hope. Ryan Howard, who had surgery on his left knee in July, will join the team this weekend in Atlanta for the season’s final series. He plans to take part in pregame warm-ups, field some balls and even take batting practice. “Things have gone well in Florida,” manager Ryne Sandberg told Phillies.com. “I’ve just seen a couple of swings on video and that’s about it. That’s why it’ll be good to see him in Atlanta doing pregame and actually taking batting practice and ground balls and running the bases.”

Nova, Penn set to get Jurassic NCAA. Al Bagnoli and Andy Talley may seem like dinosaurs, but the Villanova-Penn rivalry is alive. They’re dinosaurs who have managed to survive into the 21st century. Both Andy Talley and Al Bagnoli have been head coaches half their lives. The 70-year-old Talley has been at Villanova 29 years, added to a five-year stint at St. Lawrence in upstate New York. There he used to scrimmage Bagnoli’s teams from Union College (N.Y.) where he spent 10 years, before taking over at Penn 22 years ago. Off the field, they’ve become friends, golfing together or going out to

dinner. That’s when they commiserate about how the job has changed. On Saturday, that camaraderie will be put aside for a few hours when they go head-tohead on the Main Line. Talley will be going after his 200th win at ’Nova, his 228th overall. Bagnoli, the active FCS leader in winning percentage (.729) will send his Quakers (1-0) into a game that should be a good barometer of how they’ll stack up once Ivy play begins. “With two losses we can’t afford a loss,” said Talley. “For us, we’re up against the wall with no margin for error.” For the 60-year-old Bagnoli, a win Saturday afternoon would be something else. You see, he’s never beaten his good buddy in 11 tries. “I’ve contributed 5 percent to his victory total,”

The slate

Who: Penn (1-0) at Villanova (1-2)

When: Saturday, 5 p.m.

TV/Radio: WNTP 990 AM

laughed Bagnoli, whose 229-85 career record includes nine outright Ivy titles. “I’ve been kidding him that if he gets his 200th win at Villanova I’d expect a gift certificate in the mail. “Beating them would validate our program and the things we’re trying to do. And I think it would be really good for the league because we’re always battling stereotypes of how good Ivy football is.” Talley has no illusions this will be a cakewalk. “They’re not gonna

beat themselves, so we have to figure out a way to win the game,” said Talley, after the ’Cats (12) beat Stony Brook, 35-6, last week. “I’ve said every year that’s the most physical team we play.” Yet all wins went to the Wildcats. That gives Talley continued bragging rights on Bagnoli. “He’s a gentleman and some of the coaches today aren’t like that,” said Talley. “But, ultimately, on the 50-yard line our kids and his kids will decide this game. Not us.” “Not many of us have been doing it this long at the same place,” said Bagnoli. “I enjoy his company and hopefully he enjoys mine. So we’ll have some fun and not take it personally.”

Sixers. Brown trying to instill passion in young hoops team Head coach Brett Brown knows it’s going to be a long road to get where he wants to get the Sixers. He’s in for what could be a historically bad season. That’s OK. The new coach is looking at the bigger picture. And he likes what he sees from a talent standpoint. “We are going to come into a gym and find some way to find a passion for the game again, enjoy playing the game again,” Brown said. “That comes from putting in the time and people putting you on the right road map and telling you the truth about what is going on.” On paper, the Sixers are one of the youngest teams in the NBA. Thaddeus Young, 25, in his seventh season, is the longest-tenured player on the roster. He leads a trio of younger

guys forced into veteran roles, guys like 24-yearold Evan Turner and 25-year-old Spencer Hawes. Still, Brown likes what he sees. “The thing that has impressed me the most is how curious they are about what I think about something,” Brown said. But before getting into all the X’s and O’s and whatnot, Brown needs to fill out his coaching staff. He has one spot left open after hiring four assistants over the past few weeks, most notably Villanova’s Billy Lange. “It is going to be about teaching and relationships and energy more than NBA wisdom,” Brown said. “I respect NBA wisdom, but at this stage what is most important for us is development.”

Brett Brown is in his first year coaching the Sixers.

Rivera wants to play center field for Yanks MLB. The Yankees closer wants to take a turn in the outfield before he calls it a career. When you’re the greatest closer in the history of baseball, you earn a certain level of respect. And when you’re about to call it a career, people start catering to your wishes. Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is retiring. On his way out, he wants to fulfill a dream of playing in the outfield — and it looks as if his manager may grant him that wish. Rivera wants to play in center field. “You know, I don’t know how I would do it,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi told reporters. “It’s a situation where I might bring him in, in the eighth, to play the outfield, and then have him close it out in the ninth.” The Yankees played their final home game Thursday night. METRO
