“How do I know if I’m dreaming?” asks actress Robin Wright, played, somewhat surprisingly, by actress Robin Wright, in a moment towards the denouement of this part live action, part animated film examining the meaning of existence and the potentiality of a digital future.
Sadly, by this point, you may not care if the House Of Cards star is dreaming or not as any semblance of reality and cohesive story-telling have been abandoned in this brave, challenging but ultimately problematic piece of work from the man behind the notable Waltz With Bashir (2008), Ari Folman.
The Congress begins with Wright facing the fact that the studios don’t want to work with her; her character here is notoriously difficult and forges her own way in the ‘biz, making her own choices. She is offered, »
Imagine taking your passion, and turning it into your livliehood. For most people, it just can’t be done. Sure, many would love to give up their unsatisfying office jobs to own their own coffee shop, write the great American novel, or become an astronaut, but they don’t. They never make it into outer space. They may be afraid to give up the security, or there may only be so many of those job openings available.
And what if your passion takes you to places that no one has been to before?
How many people just want to paint wrestlers full-time and have the actual talent to do so? Just one, and his name is Rob Schamberger. He may be the only person in the history of the planet to have this occupation.
From August 15-17, Rob will be at the SummerSlam Confidential Panel in Los Angeles, »

Audrey Hepburn’s granddaughter Emma Ferrer emulates her grandmother's signature style and grace in her modeling debut for Harper’s Bazaar.
Emma Ferrer On Audrey Hepburn
Ferrer, 20, poses and is styled in ensembles that are reminiscent of those Hepburn was known for during her years as a fashion icon. Though Ferrer never met her famous grandmother, through photographs and stories she feels as though she’s developed a deep kinship with her.
“I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline — I believe this was before I understood that she was famous," Ferrer told Harper’s Bazaar. "But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had. As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family."
As Ferrer grew older, she began to understand her grandmother’s notoriety and legendary status in Hollywood by watching her famous feature films. »
Meet Audrey Hepburn's gorgeous granddaughter Emma Ferrer.
Good genes clearly run in the family.
Audrey Hepburn's 20-year-old granddaughter Emma Ferrer graces the September cover of Harper's Bazaar, looking lovely channeling the iconic star.
In the accompanying interview, Ferrer talks about her experience having Hepburn as a grandma, though unfortunately, she never got a chance to meet her -- Audrey died in January 1993 of a rare form of abdominal cancer.
Ferrer -- her first grandchild -- was born in May of the following year.
"The first images I have of her are, interestingly enough, when she was quite young," she says. "I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline -- I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had."

Like grandmother, like granddaughter. Audrey Hepburn's granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, channels her iconic grandmother in a striking spread in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. In fitting fashion, the man behind the lens has a special connection to Hepburn. Michael Avedon is the grandson of famed photographer Richard Avedon, who shot the Sabrina actress on numerous occasions and was fictionalized in one of Hepburn's most memorable films, Funny Face. "As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, the actress. To me, she was family," Emma, the daughter of [...] »
Audrey Hepburn's beauty lives on!The actress' granddaughter, Emma Ferrer, is gracing the two versions of the cover for the September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Dressed in a Lanvin gown with fitted black sleeves and a loose-fitting white skirt, the 20-year-old beauty, whose father is Hepburn's oldest child Sean, could easily be mistaken for the late Hollywood star. In another photo, Emma channels her grandmother's elegant poise in a black and white jacket, matching fur stole and wide-brimmed hat. While Hepburn passed away in 1993, a year before Emma was born, there's no denying that her legacy lives on within her. "I remember seeing a photo of her jumping on a trampoline -- I believe this was before I understood that she was famous. But I remember thinking that she looked like a friend I wish I could have had," she tells the mag. "As a child I couldn't really relate to Audrey Hepburn, »

Audrey Hepburn was the muse of iconic photographer Richard Avedon, so for Emma's modeling debut Avedon's grandson, Michael Avedon, photographed the cover. Emma definitely looks strikingly like her grandmother—the dark hair, flawless complexion and those famous cheekbones. And the vibe of »

Blake Edwards’ adaptation of Truman Capote’s bittersweet novella was a big hit in 1961 and garnered several Oscar nominations. The film’s title sequence, with “escort girl” Audrey Hepburn strolling the deserted sidewalks of New York while serenaded by Henry Mancini’s "Moon River," is one of the most memorable moments in movie history. Also memorable, unhappily, is Mickey Rooney’s outrageously un-pc portrayal of Hepburn’s Japanese landlord, which has negatively impacted modern audiences and dimmed the luster of what was long considered a romantic classic. »

With a deadline looming, a Hollywood screenwriter (William Holden) drags himself from the Parisian party circuit and hires an eager assistant (Audrey Hepburn) to help him act out his big - and mostly outlandish - ideas. Amusing make-believe between the two leads plus cameos from Tony Curtis, Marlene Dietrich and Noel Coward as a big-time producer make this a light yet unusual take on the creative process. »
Remember that time when Hollywood made a not-particularly-inspired 1995 remake of the Audrey Hepburn film Sabrina, and then destroyed all copies of the classic 1954 original so it could never be seen again? No? Then how about the the time Gus Van Sant did his kind-of-weird-but-okay shot-for-shot homage to Psycho, thus ensuring that every human being born after 1998 would nevermore have knowledge of, nor access to, the Hitchcock original? Doesn’t ring a bell? In that case, you may not be overly panicked, let alone apoplectic, about the prospect of an all-female installment of Ghostbusters — an intriguing possibility floated earlier this week, when it was reported that Sony has discussed just such a project with director Paul Feig. Some people, however, did panic. Never mind that an all-female Ghostbusters would provide a great opportunity for exactly the kind of ensemble comedy that filmgoers of late really seem to like. Never mind that »

Desk Set is a strange movie that feels both dated and ahead of its time. Its office setting, midcentury style, and technophobic slant are all signs of 1950s comedy. But in tone it stands apart. The 1930s screwball comedies and the 1940s battles of the sexes had given way to two subgenres in the 1950s: sex comedies (typically starring Marilyn Monroe), or romantic comedies (typically starring Doris Day or alternately Audrey Hepburn, depending on the ratio of laughs to romance).However, Desk Set fits into neither category comfortably. Nor is this second-to-last Tracy/Hepburn collaboration a throwback to their 40s battles.
So, where does Desk Set fit? Considering the flirty bickering over lunch, the playful bantering over dinner, the details about food, the major character revelations during holidays, »

What's your favorite scary movie? If the answer to that question is Scream, then you're no doubt excited about the upcoming MTV series based on the films; and on tap for you today is the latest casting news along with a bummer of a director change. Read on!
Per Variety, Wes Craven will no longer be directing the pilot episode of the series with MTV officially tapping “Faking It” helmer Jamie Travis to take his place. It was originally reported that Craven would be handling directing duties for the pilot, and it's no doubt a disappointment that he's now off the project.
Actors cast in key roles for the reboot of the Wes Craven film franchise about a murder spree among teenagers are Willa Fitzgerald (“Alpha House,” “Royal Pains”), Amy Forsyth (Torment, “Reign”), John Karna (Premature, “The Neighbors”), Carlson Young (“Key and Peele,” “The Kroll Show”), and Amadeus Serafini.

She falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, who Prisoners star Dano is in talks to play - an illegitimate son who rises in society.
Davies previously said of the project: "[It is] not just a great novel, it's a wonderful read and it'll make a wonderful serial.
"A thrilling, funny and heartbreaking story of love, war and family life. The characters are so natural and human and easy to identify with, and Natasha Rostova just beats Lizzy Bennet as the most lovable heroine in literature. »
Though it has been adapted several times before, Leo Tolstoy’s huge tale of drama between aristocratic Russian families is once more the target of a TV project, this time a collaboration between the BBC and The Weinstein Company. Paul Dano and Lily James are mulling offers to star in the miniseries.Developed by the company behind Ripper Street and scripted by veteran novel adapter Andrew Davies, it will retell the sprawling story that's set in 1805 Russia and weaves between five rich families around the reign of Alexander I. James is being targeted to play Natasha Rostova, who falls for the wrong man – namely Dano’s Pierre Bezukhov, an awkward illegitimate son who spots a chance to climb society’s ranks but struggles with his hot temper. The actors would be playing roles originally tackled by Audrey Hepburn and Henry Fonda in the 1956 film version, so no pressure there, then. »
