Editors' Spotlight

IMDbTV Pick: Showtime's "Penny Dreadful"

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Personal Quote:

[on the making of Taxi Driver (1976)] You rarely have a director like Martin Scorsese or a co-star like Robert De Niro, who rehearses and rehearses until you get the feeling that for the time you're with him he is the character. It's so real it's frightening. See more »

Trivia:

Was considered for the role of Alma Coin in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014), but was busy filming Elysium (2013). The role ultimately went to Julianne Moore. Coincidentally, Moore replaced Foster as Clarice Starling in the sequel to The Silence of the Lambs (1991), Hannibal (2001). See more »
