1 ECWednesday, September 28, 1994 Tallahassee Democrat ENTElimNMENT In the mood to help a worthy cause this weekend? There are sev eral benefits on the agenda: You can taste beer for cancer research, sample wine for the homeless, run for the Women's Resource Center or enjoy a concert for Big Bend Cares. Just think all that fun and you can help someone in the process. MOVIES In "The River Wild," Meryl Streep attempts an image make over, going from Oscar perennial and master of accents to action heroine and woman of the people. Hey, it might work. She plays a woman who takes a rafting trip in an attempt to save her marriage to David Straithairn. They encounter a seemingly friendly guy (Kevin Bacon) who goes on to terrorize them. Row, Meryl, row! i Oh, boy. Another baseball mov ie. But "The Scout" has a secret weapon. His name is Albert Brooks, a man who's long been one of the funniest people in the coun try. In the film he plays a longtime scout who happens upon "the next big thing," played by ever-affable Brendan Fraser. The two develop one of those humorous father-son relationships. Nobody ever said growing up in Sweden was easy. After all, we've seen "My Life as a Dog." The latest growing-up-Swedish installment, "The Slingshot," takes place in the 1920s and centers on young Roland. His mother is a Russian Jew, his father a socialist, so he's picked on mercilessly by both students and teachers alike. But he endures with humor and style. The movie is in Swedish with English subtitles. MUSIC The Florida State University School of Music is hoping to attract young adults to music-school events with a new project called The Music Scene. Bill Kennedy's jazz ensemble will perform this Thursday at Annella's Restaurant from 6 to 8 p.m. For just $6 per person, enjoy hors d'oeuvres, wine or beer while listening to favorites by American jazz composers and a few pieces by Mozart.
