Exiled From Hollywood, an $84,000 cure, and No Ceasefire

Hosted by  • 

John Kerry’s cease fire proposal rejected and violence spreads to the West Bank as the conflict between Israel and Hamas reaches day 18. We update the latest and also talk about Egypt’s role in mediation. A much-improved cure for Hepatitis C has been approved, but at $84,000 for a regimen, insurers and Medicaid are balking. A screening series -- “Hollywood Exiles in Europe” -- of films made overseas by blacklisted Hollywood filmmakers kicks off tonight. And in our weekly movie round-up: “Lucy,” starring Scarlett Johansson, new films by Rob Reiner and Woody Allen, and the trailer for “50 Shades of Grey.”
