Ethan Hawke came of age as a Gen X heartthrob, but he’s stayed relevant and is as busy as ever. He’s appeared recently in Paul Schrader’s “First Reformed” and the Nick Hornby adaptation “Juliet, Naked.” The fourth film he’s directed, “Blaze,” is out now.

And the members of Balún explain how they developed a sound they describe as “music that you can sleep to while dancing.”
