In an extraordinary look at one of country music's biggest stars, the documentary "I'll Be Me" follows Glen Campbell and his family as they cope with the singer's Alzheimer's diagnosis.
Campbell, best known for his hit songs "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman," has released 70 albums during his 50-year career in show business, which also includes a supporting role in the original "True Grit" film. However, just as Campbell was preparing to release his 61st album "Ghost on the Canvas" in 2011, it was revealed that the 78-year-old country music legend was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
Fortunately, Campbell and his wife of almost 30 years, Kim, made the best of what could have ended his career. Instead of going into hiding, the Campbell family decided to not only embark on a "Goodbye Tour," but allowed filmmaker James Keach to chronicle Campbell's life as his dementia worsened as featured in "I'll Be Me." Speaking to The Christian Post, Kim explained her hope that the revealing film raises awareness of Alzheimer's, including its effects on both patients and caregivers. more >>

Actor Shia LaBeouf has said that he found God while working on his latest film, "Fury," and is now a saved and changed man, thanks to co-star Brad Pitt.
"I found God doing 'Fury,'" LaBeouf told Interview magazine. "I became a Christian man … in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page, but it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can't identify unless you're really going through it. It's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control."
LaBeouf's change of heart comes after months of speculation about his behavior. He was involved in a feud with Alec Baldwin during rehearsals for the play "Orphans" and later was found to have plagiarized his apology for plagiarizing a graphic novelist. He was also arrested for disturbing the production of "Cabaret," but said that he was trying to do performance art. He insists that he is a changed man, haven taken control of his life. more >>
