Actress Carrie Fisher died today at 60. We talk about how she imbued the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars with an assertiveness that set the tone for the future Star Wars heroines; One of Carrie Fisher's last projects as a writer was the columnist of "Advice from the Dark Side" which ran in The Guardian. We talk with her editor who told us how the actress/memoirist came to pen this column; New York Times co-chief film critic Manohla Dargis joins John Horn to talk about some of the top film stories of the year.
