The Fire Last Time: Lonergan’s Austere Portrait of Razed Emotions in Chilly New England

Kenneth Lonergan musters yet another masterful portrait of pervasive trauma with his third feature, Manchester by the Sea, a muted New England melodrama which feels like a brotherly companion piece to the director’s feature debut sixteen years prior, You Can Count on Me (2000). Considering the dramatic development of his sophomore feature, the superb Margaret (which filmed in 2005, and after several publicized edits, at last received a release in 2011), we should be thankful his latest hasn’t been subjected to similar agitation. Commanded by a profound, melancholy performance from Casey Affleck, this latest is a subdued, languorous drama exploring the troubled future of a Boston family when a recent death in the family causes floundering skeletons to surface. Though this isn’t nearly as emotionally thorough or ambitiously monumental as either of the auteur’s first two titles, »

Review: Casey Affleck's amazing work anchors fest best 'Manchester By The Sea'

27 January 2016 12:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Grief is a terrible animal, red of claw and tooth, and once it gets hold of you, there is no way of knowing what it will do to you. Over the last year, I've watched a dear friend of mine struggle with back to back losses of two of the most important people in her life, and at times, I've genuinely worried that it would be too much for her to take. This is a strong, vibrant person, and grief landed on her in a way that very nearly crushed all of that joy and vitality right out of her. I've had my own bouts with profound sorrow over the last year as a result of the end of my marriage, and while I feel like I've reached the other side of all of that, I remain shaken by just how damaged I was by things. For the first time in my adult life, »

Super Bowl Commercials: Why Madison Avenue Is Late To This Year’s Game

26 January 2016 8:35 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Super Bowl 50 will no doubt kick off on time, but another game that has regularly taken place in the weeks before the big event has started late.

In 2011, Volkswagen reversed years of Super Bowl advertising strategy by deciding to make a clever commercial slated to appear in the Super Bowl available on YouTube the week before the game. The spot featured a young boy marching around as Darth Vader to the strains of “The Imperial March” from “Star Wars,” and its early appearance put a hot spotlight on the effects social media can have on the national conversation, winning new notice for both the automaker and its ad agency at the time, Deutsch.

Since that moment, Super Bowl marketers have launched promotional salvos earlier and earlier. In 2013, Jaguar unleashed a “teaser” commercial that highlighted the themes it would present in Super Bowl Xlviii. Web-services company GoDaddy started calling attention to »

Daily | Sundance 2016 | Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester By The Sea

24 January 2016 11:33 AM, PST | Keyframe | See recent Keyframe news »

"The persistence of grief and the hope of redemption are themes as timeless as dramaturgy itself," begins Variety's Justin Chang, "but rarely do they summon forth the kind of extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor that is Manchester by the Sea, Kenneth Lonergan’s beautifully textured, richly enveloping drama about how a death in the family forces a small-town New Englander to confront a past tragedy anew." We're gathering reviews of Lonergan’s followup to You Can Count on Me and Margaret starring Casey Affleck, Michele Williams, Kyle Chandler, Lucas Hedges, C.J. Wilson, Heather Burns, Tate Donovan, Josh Hamilton, Anna Baryshnikov, Matthew Broderick and Gretchen Mol. » - David Hudson »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Manchester by the Sea’

23 January 2016 8:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The persistence of grief and the hope of redemption are themes as timeless as dramaturgy itself, but rarely do they summon forth the kind of extraordinary swirl of love, anger, tenderness and brittle humor that is “Manchester by the Sea,” Kenneth Lonergan’s beautifully textured, richly enveloping drama about how a death in the family forces a small-town New Englander to confront a past tragedy anew. That rather diagrammatic description does little justice to Lonergan’s ever-incisive ear for the rhythms of human conversation, as he orchestrates an unruly suite of alternately sympathetic and hectoring voices — all of which stand in furious contrast to Casey Affleck’s bone-deep performance as a man whom loss has all but petrified into silence. Giving flesh and blood to the idea that life goes on even when it no longer seems worth living, “Manchester” may be too sprawling a vision for all arthouse tastes, »

Sarah Jessica Parker Is 'Radically Different' From Carrie Bradshaw: 'It Took Real Work Every Day to Be Her'

14 January 2016 6:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For the record, Sarah Jessica Parker is not that much like her Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw. "People probably don't realize that Carrie Bradshaw was radically different from who I was, who I continue to be," Parker told Wsg Magazine. "I think that sometimes because we look alike and live in the same city and haunt the same neighborhoods, that it was sort of like I was playing in the sandbox, when in truth it took real work every day to be her, to understand her, to not judge her." Parker, 50, said that Carrie handles marriage differently and »
