It begins and ends with a look. In that look is hesitance, longing, desire, confusion, confidence, conviction, hope. Even love. On NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour, writer and critic Glenn Weldon described real chemistry between actors living in the look, elaborating on the attraction manifesting in the movement of the eyes. They dart around the person’s face, looking for flaws. And when none can be found, the gaze that is exchanged can be penetrating. Director Todd Haynes revels in the minutest of movements, looks, touches, and gazes in is new film Carol, a triumph of subtlety and seductive emotion.
Looking across the toy section in the department store where she works, young Therese (Rooney Mara) finds herself instantly intrigued by and infatuated with older woman Carol (Cate Blanchett). After the two make a small flirtatious »

Gorgeous for a good cause—and so retro, too! Dakota Johnson attended the annual amfAR Milano Gala on Saturday, Sept. 26, in Milan, Italy, and she modeled her best Audrey Hepburn-esque outfit for the occasion. The Fifty Shades of Grey actress, 25, went retro in a strapless, tea-length black cocktail dress, compliments of Christian Dior, which she teamed with matching strappy sandals and a small clutch, both by Roger Vivier. A diamond strand necklace and stud earrings by Bulgari completed the elegant ensemble. But she wasn't the only stunner [...] »
Just like past winners Audrey Hepburn, John Gielgud, and Ingrid Bergman before him, Jon Hamm is making the traditional post-Emmys stop by SpongeBob SquarePants. Nickelodeon tells Vulture that Hamm's signed on to voice a character named Don Grouper in the animated series in an episode airing sometime next year; Grouper, if you couldn't guess, is "a charismatic head ad executive" with a "sharp mind and devastating charm." (Nick also provided a rough character sketch, which you can see above.) In Hamm's episode, SpongeBob and Mr. Krabs go to Grouper for business advice — no word on whether they say thank you, or if that's what the Krabby Patty is for. »

Whenever we need some fashion inspiration, the movies are often the first place we look, and whether we are talking about the iconic get-ups from the likes of Audrey Hepburn or Steve McQueen back in the day, up to a Leonardo DiCaprio rocking some classic suits and shades in Wolf of Wall Street last year, it’s clear that no actor is fit for the silver screen unless they have some epic shades to top off their look.
Johnny Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Arnie in the Terminator Franchise, Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, pretty much the entire cast of Reservoir Dogs… these movies just wouldn’t be the same without the characters kicking ass and looking super cool while doing it.
Many of the best eyewear styles found in the movies have gone on to spark fashion trends that endure to this day, so »

Billy Wilder directed Sunset Blvd. with Gloria Swanson and William Holden. Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett movies Below is a list of movies on which Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder worked together as screenwriters, including efforts for which they did not receive screen credit.

Although some of these movies were quite well received, Wilder's later efforts – which also included The Seven Year Itch »

New Form Digital has turned to a book for inspiration for its next web series. The digital content studio, founded by filmmakers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer in conjunction with Discovery, has officially optioned the novel Being Audrey Hepburn for adaptation into a digital series.
Written by Mitchell Kriegman, Being Audrey Hepburn tells the story of an underprivileged teen girl named Lisbeth whose life changes after she tries on the little black dress Hepburn wore in the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany’s. New Form Digital plans to take the Being Audrey Hepburn book and turn it into a 12-part series, much in the way Bernie Su and Pemberley Digital have turned Jane Austen novels into Emmy-winning digital series. New Form’s adaptation of Kriegman’s debut novel will premiere sometime in 2016.
Being Audrey Hepburn seems like an appropriate candidate for adaptation. Emmy-winning Kriegman has a long history with storytelling in the media, »

Kino Lorber brings the infamous 1967 Spaghetti western Navajo Joe to Blu-ray, an overlooked gem of the genre that’s long been shadowed by its troubled reputation and the continual disparagement of its lead star, Burt Reynolds. In retrospect, this Italian/Spanish co-production promises to be a bit too politically incorrect to be taken seriously considering the casting of American star Reynolds as a Navajo Indian (he is, in fact, partly of Cherokee descent, though not enough to avoid the necessity of bronzer and a black wig).
It’s hardly the first or last time we’ve seen whitewashed casting of Native Americans (Audrey Hepburn in John Huston’s 1960 western The Unforgiven comes to mind), and to many the casting seems to compromise the integrity of the title. Instantly reviled and dismissed by Reynolds in his second starring role during his transition from television to film, it is, nevertheless, a very »

Gary Cooper movies on TCM: Cooper at his best and at his weakest Gary Cooper is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” star today, Aug. 30, '15. Unfortunately, TCM isn't showing any Cooper movie premiere – despite the fact that most of his Paramount movies of the '20s and '30s remain unavailable. This evening's features are Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), Sergeant York (1941), and Love in the Afternoon (1957). Mr. Deeds Goes to Town solidified Gary Cooper's stardom and helped to make Jean Arthur Columbia's top female star. The film is a tad overlong and, like every Frank Capra movie, it's also highly sentimental. What saves it from the Hell of Good Intentions is the acting of the two leads – Cooper and Arthur are both excellent – and of several supporting players. Directed by Howard Hawks, the jingoistic, pro-war Sergeant York was a huge box office hit, eventually earning Academy Award nominations in several categories, »

Debbie Reynolds movies: Oscar nominee for 'The Unsinkable Molly Brown,' sweetness and light in phony 'The Singing Nun' Debbie Reynolds is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” star today, Aug. 23, '15. An MGM contract player from 1950 to 1959, Reynolds' movies can be seen just about every week on TCM. The only premiere on Debbie Reynolds Day is Jerry Paris' lively marital comedy How Sweet It Is (1968), costarring James Garner. This evening, TCM is showing Divorce American Style, The Catered Affair, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, and The Singing Nun. 'Divorce American Style,' 'The Catered Affair' Directed by the recently deceased Bud Yorkin, Divorce American Style (1967) is notable for its cast – Reynolds, Dick Van Dyke, Jean Simmons, Jason Robards, Van Johnson, Lee Grant – and for the fact that it earned Norman Lear (screenplay) and Robert Kaufman (story) a Best Original Screenplay Academy Award nomination. »

The lighting of a cigarette. The sipping of a martini. The tucking of hair behind an ear. In the first seven seconds alone of the “Carol” trailer, Cate Blanchett captivates as the effortlessly glamorous title character. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel “The Price of Salt,” with direction from Todd Haynes and a screenplay from Phyllis Nagy, the 2015 Cannes Film Festival favorite centers on a married woman in 1950’s New York who begins a scandalous affair with a younger department store clerk who happens to also be a woman. Co-starring Sarah Paulson, Kyle Chandler, and Rooney Mara (with her uncanny resemblance to Audrey Hepburn) as the fixation of Carol’s wandering eye, the film is sure to play a big role come awards season. Just look at all those sultry glances! Sure, two-time Oscar winner Blanchett nabbed leading actress only a year and a half ago, but could you blame »
Say Uncle: Ritchie Continues String of Studio Pastiche
In a continuation of our culture’s insistence on plumbing the depths of past artifacts from the annals of entertainment, Guy Ritchie continues to spearhead the platitudinal safety of broadly realized studio fare with The Man from U.N.C.L.E., a revamp of the popular mid-60s television series starring Robert Vaughn and David McCallum. Shallow and superficial, but spruced up with Ritchie’s usual zest for slickly edited, often comical action sequences, it’s the sort of bauble someone spent significant time painting with materials prone to oxidizing quickly.
Though pleasing in a sort of rudimentary tradition, the sort of consumption geared solely towards the visual splendor of pretty people wearing elegant outfits goes, it’s hardly an enthusiastically rendered reboot.

On Tuesday at the computer-graphics convention Siggraph, The Hollywood Reporter writes, Pixar revealed the physical inspirations for Inside Out's team of anthropomorphic emotions. The film's character art director Albert Lozano told the crowd that the team (literally) drew from the looks of Hollywood icons both past and present. Amy Poehler's Joy, it turns out, was modeled on Audrey Hepburn and given the graceful movements of a gymnast. Sadness was originally drawn as sort of a living tear, but it gradually took on aspects of Rachel Dratch's Debbie Downer, as well as Wednesday Addams. For Disgust, the team took inspiration from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Veruca Salt and Poehler's Parks and Rec co-star Aubrey Plaza. Fear was always envisioned as having prominent eyes, like those of Don Knotts and Mr. Bean. And Anger, well, that was an easy one — he was just a square. »

L.A. is a strange town. Where have I heard that statement before? It is unique in the
world – grown from the Hollywood seed, it has developed its own culture . . . and is,
in parts, quite dysfunctional.
A culture of creative paranoia. Did you know that an agent will not talk to anyone
unless he or she already knows that person, or there is a personal introduction.
Sound anything like Pride and Prejudice?
“Do I know you Miss Elizabeth?”
“We have yet to be introduced, Mr. Darcy.”
No one will read anything – forget a script - even an email – without a
recommendation from a trusted colleague. I pity the folk at 2000 Avenue of the Stars
when the unknown fireman tries to evacuate the building in a crisis.
“I’m sorry sir, the people on the 12th floor refuse to accept that you are a real
person. Do you have an appointment? »

If you're a Millennial, you probably aren't familiar with the '60s TV show new movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E. is based on, but trust us - it won't matter. Packed with enviable style, vintage cars, and a painfully attractive cast - Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Ex Machina's Alicia Vikander, and The Great Gatsby's Elizabeth Debicki - the movie aims to bridge the action of a Bond film with the fashion of an Audrey Hepburn classic. In other words, there's something for everyone. We caught up with the cast in London to talk about nailing their accents, underwater stunts, and their seriously '60s costumes. The Man From U.N.C.L.E. hits theaters on Aug.14. »
It’s summer time so why not go on a road trip? Well unless of course you want to spend the whole time bickering and trying to work out why your relationship slowly unraveling; Stanley Donen’s Two for the Road is this week’s film as well as an in-depth look at how relationships fail.
From Masters of Cinema:
One of the great fims by Stanley Donen (Singin’ in the Rain, Charade) after the studio era had come to a close, Two for the Road was a break-off with the old system, one which allowed Donen to further stretch his art, aided by screenwriter Frederic Raphael (Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut), in this tale of a couple voluntarily stretching themselves through the long period of their relationship.
Portrayed in fragments that span the couple’s time together in marriage, Two for the Road runs the course of a »
