Join your host John Bosco on Monday, Jan. 4, at 7 p.m. for his monthly Director’s Cut series, and enjoy little-seen but critically acclaimed film gems you may have missed in the movies or on DVD. This month’s selection is 500 Days of Summer. When his girlfriend (Zooey Deschanel), unceremoniously dumps him, greeting-card copywriter and hopeless romantic Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) begins sifting through the year-plus worth of days they spent together, looking for clues to what went awry. As he recalls the good and bad times he spent with the commitment-phobic girl, his heart reawakens to what it cherishes most. Marc Webb directs this uncommon love story.

We also asked, “Why should someone vote for you rather than your opponent?” Here are their responses.)

And in the greatest novel to emerge from World War II, Manhasset initially appears on the very first page of The Caine Mutiny as the hometown of the book’s central protagonist, Willy Keith, whose residence in 1942 is described thusly:
