Starmaker Allégret: From Gay Romance with 'Uncle' (and Nobel Winner) Gide to Simon's Movie Mentor

27 February 2015 9:46 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Marc Allégret: From André Gide lover to Simone Simon mentor (photo: Marc Allégret) (See previous post: "Simone Simon Remembered: Sex Kitten and Femme Fatale.") Simone Simon became a film star following the international critical and financial success of the 1934 romantic drama Lac aux Dames, directed by her self-appointed mentor – and alleged lover – Marc Allégret.[1] The son of an evangelical missionary, Marc Allégret (born on December 22, 1900, in Basel, Switzerland) was to have become a lawyer. At age 16, his life took a different path as a result of his romantic involvement – and elopement to London – with his mentor and later "adoptive uncle" André Gide (1947 Nobel Prize winner in Literature), more than 30 years his senior and married to Madeleine Rondeaux for more than two decades. In various forms – including a threesome with painter Théo Van Rysselberghe's daughter Elisabeth – the Allégret-Gide relationship remained steady until the late '20s and their trip to »

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Audrey Hepburn

21 February 2015 7:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AP/AP

Every now and then, Hollywood is graced with a truly standout individual who, for whatever mixture of reasons, stands head and shoulders above the rest. They are the enduring icons, and the ones who remains classics of the silver screen even decades after their departure.

No other actress fits the role more definitively than Audrey Hepburn. Despite her diminutive stature, she made an enormous impact on the film industry from the outset, receiving equal billing alongside already established star Gregory Peck in her first starring role in Roman Holiday. For an actress who wasn’t even first choice for the role, it was a hell of an entrance to make.

But even though she may be renowned for genre-defining roles like socialite call-girl Holly Golightly and Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle, there remains far more to her character than what is seen on screen. A humanitarian, artist and dancer, »

The Duff – The Review

20 February 2015 6:01 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’m at a demographic disadvantage regarding The Duff, being neither an adolescent girl nor someone who enjoys comedies that aren’t funny. Based on the ads, you might expect this new teen clique comedy to have some bite – a Mean Girls for a new generation. Duff is an acronym for ‘Designated Ugly Fat Friend’, someone that more attractive girls let hang around with them for contrast – a “gatekeeper to better-looking friends” – which gives it about the most mean-spirited movie title of late. The title role is played by Mae Whitman, who is short, has distracting eyebrows, and is too old for the role, but she’s neither fat nor ugly, not anymore so than Audrey Hepburn was street trash because her face was dirty in My Fair Lady or Rachel Leigh Cook couldn’t get noticed because she wore glasses in She’S All That. Just once I’d »

Oscars: Red Carpet Has its Own Share of Surprising Turns

17 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From navel-grazing necklines (Jennifer Aniston’s vintage John Galliano at the Screen Actors Guild Awards) to thigh-grazing hemlines (Madonna’s Givenchy bodysuit at the Grammys), the stars have been pulling out all the stops. If this year’s awards season offers any clues as to what we can expect on Oscar’s big night, it’s that we should expect the unexpected.

“Everyone is doing something different,” says Brit designer Emilia Wickstead, who created Diane Kruger’s stunning Golden Globes gown. “There are so many stories being told on the red carpet.”

From Kubrick to Marilyn Monroe, Oscar Has a Stellar List of Shut-Outs

13 February 2015 4:54 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are 195 individuals nominated for Oscar this year. And when the winners are named Feb. 22, they will become part of film history, joining such greats as Billy Wilder, Ingrid Bergman, Ben Hecht and Walt Disney.

But 80% of the contenders will go home empty-handed. However, there is good news: They are in good company as well.

Here is a sampling of nominees that didn’t win: “Citizen Kane,” “Chinatown” and “Star Wars”; directors Alfred Hitchcock, Howard Hawks, Stanley Kubrick and Ingmar Bergman; writers Tennessee Williams, Arthur Miller, Dashiell Hammett, John Steinbeck, Graham Greene, Harold Pinter and David Mamet; actors Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Blvd.”; Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”; and Peter O’Toole in “Lawrence of Arabia.”

They managed to do Ok, though.

It’s hard to say why they didn’t win. Sometimes tastes change. Sometimes there’s too much competition in one year. Frank Capra’s 1939 “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Cinderella’

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Disney’s new live-action “Cinderella,” four mice are ballooned into elegant white horses, two lizards are forced to serve as makeshift footmen, and an oblivious old goose gets zapped into driving a pumpkin carriage. But as the American Humane Assn. can attest, no animals were harmed in the making of this delightful if overly safe update of the gold-standard toon classic. More importantly, the underlying property emerges untarnished, as director Kenneth Branagh reverently reimagines Charles Perrault’s classic fairy tale for a new generation the world over, spelling countless opportunities to exploit fresh interest in the story throughout the Disney universe.

The latest in a trend to rework the most precious treasures in the Mouse House vault, “Cinderella” is by far the studio’s most calculated retelling yet, to the extent that those who know the toon by heart may find Chris Weitz’s serviceable script a wee bit dull. »

"This unique event will bring the music centre-stage, quite literally, as it is performed live and in full by an orchestra and choir.

Ariana Grande’s Stylist Goes Inside the Singer’s Hottest Looks and ’60s Obsession

Despite only being in the game for a few years, 21-year-old singer Ariana Grande always steps out in style. With a petite body, signature high pony, and an angelic face, Ariana has proven time after time that her voice is not the only thing to be reckoned with. Since the early start of her career, celebrity stylist Brigitte Pilla has been the woman behind some of Ariana’s most iconic looks. In case you needed a receipt, she is the genius who put Ariana in those white thigh-high stockings and Ysl pumps for the “Problem” single cover. The two met while both working on Nickelodeon’s Victorious back in 2010. “We kind of built a friendship there, and then I came on when she first started her first album (Yours Truly),” Pilla tells us. Since Ariana’s start as a teen star, her style has definitely gone from shy school girl, »

9 Actors Who Played Other, Better Actors

31 January 2015 3:22 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Canal+

Biopics have been a cinema institution since 1900, when French actress Bleuette Bernon starred as Joan of Arc in George Melies’ silent film of the same name, but such a role comes with far more pressure than usual for the starring actor. The portrayal needs to remain true to the character as the audience already knows it, and this requires something that even the most talented of actors can struggle to bring to the screen: authenticity.

The job, then, becomes even more of a challenge when it comes to biopics of figures who are in the acting profession themselves. For an actor to play an actor requires a level of imitation that encompasses the whole of the character’s on-screen and off-screen persona, and this inevitably means being measured up to and compared against the skill and integrity of the very actor being portrayed.

Can anybody really capture the elegance and grace of Audrey Hepburn? »

Five Unmissable Buñuel Classics Tonight on TCM

26 January 2015 5:24 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Luis Buñuel movies on TCM tonight (photo: Catherine Deneuve in 'Belle de Jour') The city of Paris and iconoclastic writer-director Luis Buñuel are Turner Classic Movies' themes today and later this evening. TCM's focus on Luis Buñuel is particularly welcome, as he remains one of the most daring and most challenging filmmakers since the invention of film. Luis Buñuel is so remarkable, in fact, that you won't find any Hollywood hipster paying homage to him in his/her movies. Nor will you hear his name mentioned at the Academy Awards – no matter the Academy in question. And rest assured that most film critics working today have never even heard of him, let alone seen any of his movies. So, nowadays Luis Buñuel is un-hip, un-cool, and unfashionable. He's also unquestionably brilliant. These days everyone is worried about freedom of expression. The clash of civilizations. The West vs. The Other. »

Acting Oscar Nominations for Foreign-Language Performances

21 January 2015 8:08 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

With the addition of Marion Cotillard’s lead actress nomination for the Belgian film Two Days, One Night, 32 actors and actresses have been nominated for their performances in foreign-language films. Cotillard was nominated for her role as a young mother and wife struggling to salvage her job in Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardennes’ film, which was chosen as Belgium’s submission to the foreign-language category but failed to secure a spot on the Oscar shortist.

Though her performance did land a Critics’ Choice Award nomination, the Oscar nomination did come as a surprise for many pundits.

Cotillard was previously nominated for the French foreign-language film La Vie En Rose (2007) and won. She is one of six actors or actresses to win for a non-English role and is also the most recent winner.

The first acting nomination for a foreign-language performance went to Sophia Loren in 1962 for »
