It's the weekend and your Metro6 report is bubbling over with fun and interesting reads. No negativity @metronewyork. Enjoy the weekend.

THE MEND (review)
Metro's tough movie critic weighs in on The Mend: " Ideally it’s best to head into “The Mend” knowing nothing. But if you must know, it’s about a straight-laced, uptight, not-so-quietly enraged lawyer, Alan (Stephen), spending not-so-quality time with his drifter brother, Mat (Josh Lucas)," writes Matt Prigge.See how many Globes Prigge gives out.Ned Ehrbarinterviews Lucas.

JONATHAN FRANZEN
The author's plan to adopt an Iraq war babyto better understand young people gets panned on the Interwebs, writes Lisa Weidenfeld.

KRISTIN STEWART
Prigge also weighs in Kristin Stewart and what a big ol' thespian she is... that's thespian.
