Women directors are set to dominate screens this May. Everything from luxurious Paris vacations to time travel to narratives about grief and regret are represented in this month’s batch of films.
The month’s releases begin May 3 with Jill Campbell’s doc “Mr. Chibbs,” about a former NBA star figuring out his next phase in life. Then May 5 will bring us Ela Thier’s time travel dramedy “Tomorrow Ever After,” the period drama “A Woman’s Life,” and a story about the intense friendship between two mentally ill women in “Like Crazy.” Also out the fifth is Oscar winner Laura Poitras’ latest documentary, “Risk,” which follows Wikileaks founder Julian Assange over six years.
May 5 sees the release of “3 Generations,” a portrait of a young trans man Ray (Elle Fanning) as he begins his transition. Directed by Gaby Dellal and written by Dellal and Nikole Beckwith, “3 Generations” has sparked controversy since its Cannes premiere in 2015. Many critics and activists are disappointed that Fanning, a cis woman, was selected to play a transgender character. The film has also made headlines for its “R” rating, which The Weinstein Company is challenging.
One week later, Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer will test their chops as a comedy duo in “Snatched.” Written by “Ghostbusters” scribe Katie Dippold, the film follows a wild daughter (Schumer) who recruits her conservative mother (Hawn) for an exotic vacation that goes horribly wrong.
May’s first few weeks also bring a couple dramas about domestic life to theaters. May 12’s “Paris Can Wait” is Eleanor Coppola’s feature directorial debut and follows one woman’s (Diane Lane) journey of self-discovery as she travels to Paris with a colleague of her inattentive husband. In Robin Swicord’s “Wakefield,” out May 19, “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston plays a husband and father who chooses to isolate himself from the world in his own attic, giving him time to contemplate his life and the choices he’s made.
May 19 is also the premiere of Stella Meghie’s “Everything, Everything,” which centers on a teenage girl (Amandla Stenberg), who is physically incapable of surviving the outside world, and her romance with the boy next door (Nick Robinson).
The final weekend in May features the release of director Cate Shortland’s critically-acclaimed “Berlin Syndrome.” In this romance turned thriller, Theresa Palmer stars as a woman locked in a man’s apartment against her will, who must come up with some way to escape his grasp.
Here are all the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films premiering in May. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.
This observational documentary follows NYC basketball prodigy and retired NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson in the midst of a mid-life crisis, on a journey to find himself. Reeling from his mother’s death and a subsequent DUI, “Chibbs” visits people and arenas from his past, confronting haunting memories, and ultimately finding solace in becoming the father he never had time to be. Combining unseen archival footage with raw moments of reflection, “Mr. Chibbs” is a portrait of an athlete coming to terms with his past as he searches for relevancy in his future.
Ray (Elle Fanning) is a teenager who is in the midst of transitioning from female to male. His single mother, Maggie (Naomi Watts), must track down Ray’s biological father (Tate Donovan) to get his legal consent to allow Ray’s transition. Dolly (Susan Sarandon), Ray’s lesbian grandmother, is having a hard time accepting that she now has a grandson. They must each confront their own identities and learn to embrace change and their strength as a family in order to ultimately find acceptance and understanding.
Filmed over six years, “Risk” is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high stakes election year and its controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle. In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, “Risk” is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice.
Shaina (writer-director Ela Thier) is a historian who lives 600 years in the future. Humans, at this point, have cleaned up the planet. War, poverty, pollution, greed, exploitation, depression, loneliness — these are things that she’s read about in history books. And while she studied this dark period of history, in which money was viewed as more precious than people, she has never, in the flesh, seen humans hurt other humans — until now. While visiting a group of physicists who experiment with time travel, Shaina is accidentally left stranded in the year 2015. Here she involves herself with a group of friends who are as lovable as they are flawed. As the harsh realities of their lives unfold, she learns what no history book could have taught her.
“A Woman’s Life” — Co-Written by Florence Vignon (Opens in NY)
“A Woman’s Life”
Adapted from the novel “Une Vie” by Guy de Maupassant, “A Woman’s Life” is a tale of tormented love embedded in the restrictive social and moral codes of marriage and family in 19th century Normandy. Upon finishing her schooling in a convent, young aristocrat Jeanne (Judith Chemla) marries local Viscount Julien de Lamare (Swann Arlaud), who soon reveals himself to be a miserly and unfaithful husband. As she navigates his chronic infidelity, pressure from her family and community, and the alternating joys and burdens of motherhood, Jeanne’s rosy illusions about her privileged world are slowly stripped away.
Beatrice (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she’s on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella (Micaela Ramazzotti) is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her own mystery. They are both patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic. “Like Crazy” tells the story of the unpredictable and moving friendship that develops between the two women as they flee the mental institution in search of love and happiness in the open-air nuthouse — the world of sane people.
Jane (Amy Johnson) is a beautiful but troubled American girl backpacking her way through Hong Kong. When she successfully fends off three thugs trying to rob her, she draws the attention of Shu (Muriel Hofmann), a Wudang champion, who is impressed by her raw street fighting abilities. Shu recruits Jane and trains her to fight in the vicious, all-female, underground martial arts tournament known as “The Kumite.” After months of rigorous preparation, Jane is ready to face off against the deadliest female fighters in the world, including Ling (Jenny Wu), the apprentice of Shu’s nemesis, Wai (Kathy Wu).
Already respected as one of the best actresses in film, Blanchett raises the bar even higher by playing 13 different roles in “Manifesto,” embodying some of the most influential and emotional artist manifestos in history. (Sundance Film Festival)
“The Drowning”: Paladin
“The Drowning” is the story of a forensic psychologist (Josh Charles) who is haunted by his expert witness testimony that sent a young boy (Avan Jogia) to prison for a chilling murder. When the boy later reappears in his life, he is drawn into a destructive, soul-searching reinvestigation of the case.
After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn), to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter — in unpredictable, hilarious fashion — is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into.
Eleanor Coppola’s feature film directorial and screenwriting debut stars Academy Award nominee Diane Lane as a Hollywood producer’s wife who unexpectedly takes a trip through France, which reawakens her sense of self and her joie de vivre. Anne (Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successful and driven but inattentive movie producer (Alec Baldwin), she finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband (Arnaud Viard). What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a journey of discovery involving mouthwatering meals, spectacular wines, and picturesque sights.
At 32, Michal (Noa Koller) is finally looking forward to the comfort and security of marriage, when she is blindsided by her fiancé’s decision to call off the wedding with only a month’s notice. Unwilling to return to lonely single life, Michal decides to trust in fate and continue with her wedding plans, believing Mr. Right will appear by her chosen date. Confident she will find a match made in heaven, she books a venue, sends out invitations, and buys a wedding dress, as her skeptical mother (Irit Sheleg) and sister look on with trepidation.
“Urban Hymn” (Also Available on VOD)
A redemptive coming of age story about wayward teen Jamie (Letitia Wright), who is encouraged by an inspiring and unconventional social worker Kate (Shirley Henderson), to use singing as an escape from her troubled background. Jamie’s loyalties soon become torn between Kate and her possessive and volatile best friend, Leanne (Isabella Laughland).
Twenty-one-year-old Plumb Marigold (Alexi Pappas) is a famous but lonely distance runner preparing for the biggest race of her life: The Olympic Trials. But when an injury forces her to take an unexpected day off, Plumb wanders into a bakery where the aimless boy behind the counter catches her eye.
“Stefan Zweig: Farewell to Europe” charts the years of exile in the life of famous Jewish-Austrian writer Stefan Zweig (Josef Hader), his inner struggle for the “right attitude” towards the events in war torn Europe, and his search for a new home.
Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue) is a straight-laced, by-the-books social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of deaths involving people who died in their sleep. The victims all reported being terrorized by a dark entity that paralyzed and tormented them, before eventually killing them. Kate is joined in this quest by Evan (Jesse Bradford), an artist who is slow to believe that something supernatural is occurring.
“Hounds of Love” (Also Available on VOD)
Vicki Maloney (Ashleigh Cummings) is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple (Stephen Curry and Emma Booth). As she observes the dynamic between her captors, she quickly realizes she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
“Hindi Medium”— Written by Zeenat Lakhani
“Hindi Medium” is a light-hearted romantic film about a young couple, Raj and Mita (Irrfan Khan and Saba Qamar) who live in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, with aspirations to move into English-speaking society for their daughter’s sake. The film traces their trials and tribulations on this journey and the impact it has on their relationship on their family.
What if you couldn’t touch anything in the outside world? Never breathe in the fresh air, feel the sun warm your face, or kiss the boy next door? “Everything, Everything” tells the unlikely love story of Maddy (Amandla Stenberg), a smart, curious, and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly (Nick Robinson), the boy next door who won’t let that stop them. Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together… even if it means losing everything.
Who among us has never wanted to walk away from it all? It is a cold fact of modern life that, some days, everything becomes too much. For Howard Wakefield (Bryan Cranston), New York City lawyer, husband, and father of two, the overwhelming impulse to just leave arises one night as he stands in his own suburban driveway. Howard, however, does not run far. Inspired (or led?) by a raccoon, he enters the attic of his two-car garage, and proceeds to hide there for weeks.
“Paint It Black” is the story of the aftermath of Michael’s (Rhys Wakefield) death, and Josie’s (Alia Shawkat) struggle to hold onto the true world he shared with her. As Josie searches for the key to understanding his death, she finds herself both repelled and attracted to Michael’s pianist mother, Meredith (Janet McTeer), who holds Josie responsible for her son’s torment. Soon, the two women find themselves drawn into a twisted relationship reflecting equal parts distrust and blind need.
Her medical options exhausted, an American woman (Ana Cecilia Stieglitz) travels to the Amazon in search of a miracle. Thanks to a young ayahuasca shaman who is losing his eyesight, she learns instead to confront her “susto”: the disease of fear.
Dirt track racer Sean Weathers (Andrew Cheney) was at the top of his game — an unstoppable career, scores of fans, and an adoring daughter. When a rivalry with another racer turns personal, the ego that propelled him to success causes a tragedy, sending his life into a tailspin. Jack Reed (Gary Graham) was attempting to make up for past mistakes. He had prospered as a businessman but failed as a family man. In a sudden turn of events, his chances for reconciliation are ripped from his grasp. Sean and Jack’s lives collide, and an unexpected bond forms between them. Working through a painful journey of healing together, they each learn about second chances and the true freedom only forgiveness can offer.
“The Woman Who Left” (Opens in NY)
“The Woman Who Left” tells the story of Horacia Somorostro (Charo Santos), a woman seeking revenge after being convicted for decades for a crime she didn’t commit.
“Restless Creature: Wendy Whelan” offers an intimate portrait of prima ballerina Wendy Whelan as she prepares to leave New York City Ballet after a record-setting three decades with the company. As the film opens, Whelan is 46, battling a painful injury that has kept her from the ballet stage, and facing the prospect of her impending retirement from the company. What we see, as we journey with her, is a woman of tremendous strength, resilience, and good humor. We watch Whelan brave the surgery that she hopes will enable her comeback to Nycb and we watch her begin to explore the world of contemporary dance, as she steps outside the traditionally patriarchal world of ballet to create “Restless Creature,” a collection of four contemporary vignettes forged in collaboration with four young choreographers.
While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photojournalist Clare (Teresa Palmer) meets charismatic local man Andi (Max Riemelt). There is an instant attraction between them, and a night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance suddenly takes an unexpected and sinister turn when Clare wakes the following morning to discover Andi has left for work and locked her in his apartment. An easy mistake to make, of course, except Andi has no intention of letting her go again.

Diane Lane had a special guest when she attended the premiere of Paris Can Wait at the Tribeca Film Festival on Tuesday: her daughter, Eleanor Lambert. The two cuddled up for a few sweet photos as they walked the red carpet together. Not only is their resemblance uncanny, but we can't get over how much her 23-year-old, whose father is actor Christopher Lambert, has grown since the last time we saw her at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere last year.

Produced by Francis Ford Coppola
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola
Rumble Fish, Francis Ford Coppola’s Young Adult tone poem, unspools in a black and white never-never land of sullen teens, pool tables and pompadours. It may take a moment for the audience to suss out that we’re not in the Eisenhower era with Chuck Berry, Marilyn Monroe and the Cold War but squarely in Reagan’s domain of MTV, Madonna and the Cold War.

What is it? Two old college friends cross paths as adults and beat the ever-loving crap out of each other.
Why see it? Onur Tukel’s latest is also his best thanks in part to the lead performances by Sandra Oh and Anne Heche. They do a good job of manipulating our sympathies and concerns ensuring that our loyalties shift from act to act. Themes of female friendships, class distinctions, and redemption run through alongside a satirical look at modern life, and there’s a terrifically wicked streak throughout. Funny, smart, and brutal are all apt descriptors for this cynical look at our violent selves.

Ever since the first Justice League photo was revealed at Comic-Con in 2016, Superman has been noticeably absent from Warner Bros.’ marketing campaign for the highly anticipated superhero team-up film. The studio’s decision to leave the character out of trailers, posters and images over the past year certainly makes sense, considering how Superman did, in fact, die at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but it would come as a surprise to no one that »

This probably won’t come as much of a surprise, despite Warner Bros.’ best efforts to keep Superman out of the marketing material, but Diane Lane has confirmed that she will be reprising her Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice role as Martha Kent in November’s Justice League.
“I don’t think I’m allowed to talk much about it,” said Lane in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “But it was good for me, selfishly, to have a reunion with everyone and meeting some of the new characters.”
The actress was also asked for her thoughts on Batman v Superman’s much-ridiculed ‘Save Martha’ scene, dismissing the criticism and stating that she found it appropriate for the story: “It’s the compassion for a man who’s lost his mother. When you understand the wound, you can work better with people.”

Diane Lane plays Martha Kent in the DC Extended Universe, but the actress found herself as the unexpected focal point of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice when fans and critics alike took aim at the “Martha!” scene between the Dark Knight and Man of Steel in the DC Comics adaptation.
When Batman was about to take Superman down for good with a Kryptonite spear, the latter’s cries for his mother – who had been kidnapped by Lex Luthor – stopped the Caped Crusader in his tracks due to the fact that Martha Kent and Martha Wayne share the same first name. Not everyone connected with that scene, but Lane has now explained why she believes director Zack Snyder made the right decision by including it in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Diane Lane is poised to play a supermom for the third time.
"I don't think I'm allowed to talk much about it. But it was good for me, selfishly, to have a reunion with everyone and meeting some of the new characters," Lane told The Hollywood Reporter Friday at a women's filmmaker luncheon, presented by Chanel and the Tribeca Film Festival.

Last month, Warner Bros. unveiled the first full-length Justice League trailer, but with exactly seven months left until this superhero ensemble hits theaters, it remains to be seen if much more footage will be released. Today we have word that Game of Thrones star Michael McElhatton, who played the nefarious Roose Bolton on the HBO series, has a mystery role in the superhero ensemble. While he wouldn't say who he's playing, but the actor did tease that he is in the movie's opening scene, which is quite dark. Although the movie as a whole has more humor than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
"There is probably going to be a lot more humor in Justice League, I think would probably be the main difference from the previous one (Batman V Superman). I found the scene I did, which is kind of a big opening scene, was pretty dark actually in its tone, »

We have (what seems like) forever to wait until Justice League makes its way to theaters, but Warner Bros. is going to be teasing us the whole way. Not long ago, they released the first official trailer for the Justice League movie, which really got hardcore DC fans excited. Now we have another new poster for the movie, which shows the members of the Justice League from a slightly different angle. Literally.
The poster surfaced on the Warner Bros. India Twitter account and uses the now familiar tagline, "Unite the League." That phrase seems to be a play on what Zack Snyder was using early on in the making of Justice League when he was using the line "unite the seven." That tagline seemed to imply that all seven members of the Justice League would be uniting in the movie and, as of right now, we only have six accounted for. »
Spoiler Alert: This interview contains plot details of the film Paris Can Wait. Diane Lane received the Sarasota Film Festival’s Award for Cinematic Excellence on Saturday, where Paris Can Wait was the closing night event.

While the final design for Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in for a lot of criticism, it seems that a much more comic book accurate version of the villain was considered during pre-production, with illustrator Jerad S. Marantz sharing a piece of his concept artwork for the film, along with a look at one of the concept model designs. Take a look here (via Batman-News)…

Before the Dceu was formed, Zack Snyder was brought on to direct a new Superman movie entitled Man of Steel, with the filmmaker choosing British actor Henry Cavill to portray Superman/Clark Kent. The director told us during our 2011 Man of Steel set visit that, when they auditioned Henry Cavill, they didn't have a suit designed yet, so the director planned on letting the actor use Christopher Reeve's iconic suit from his Superman movies, but the studio wouldn't let him, so they made a replica costume based on that suit's design. The rest, of course, is history, but earlier today, the filmmaker shared a behind-the-scenes photo from that audition, revealing Henry Cavill wearing this suit for the first time. Here's what Zack Snyder had to say about this costume process during our set visit.
"When we tested Henry, we didn't have a costume, so we put him in the Christopher Reeve costume, »
Alec Baldwin is making headlines following the publication of his memoir, “Nevertheless.” In the book, the actor claims that he was not aware Nikki Reed was only 16 when they made the film “Mini’s First Time,” in which Baldwin’s character has an affair with his stepdaughter, played by Reed. According to Baldwin, he was so upset that he “flipped out” on the producers of the film.
On Wednesday, Dana Brunetti, who produced the film along with Kevin Spacey and Evan Astrowsky, took to Twitter to refute Baldwin’s statements, claiming that the actor was aware of Reed’s age when the film was shot in October 2004.
Moreover, on Thursday, Brunetti told The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s a lie. I read it and was like, ‘What the f—. Of course he totally knew how old she was. »

Not all that long ago, we were treated to the first official trailer for Justice League, which appeared to give us a pretty good idea of what to expect from the movie. But, aside from Superman, there was a clear absence in the form of the villain Steppenwolf, who we know to be the main bad guy the Justice League will be facing in November. Now actor Ciaran Hinds, who will be playing Steppenwolf, has provided some details on his character.
The actor recently spoke with The Independant about his role in Justice League. We have known for a while that the Game of Thrones actor will be playing Steppenwolf, but we haven't heard much about it since that was revealed. In the interview, he gave a tiny bit about his character in the movie and also teased his relationship to the even bigger threat, Darkseid. Here is what he had to say. »
Alec Baldwin, noted Donald Trump impersonator and the Boss Baby himself, has a new memoir out. Among the subjects in “Nevertheless” is the 2006 film “Mini’s First Time,” in which Baldwin’s character has an affair with his stepdaughter. The actor writes that he wasn’t aware at the time that his co-star Nikki Reed was just 16 at the time; when he found out, he claims to have been so angry that he yelled at the film’s producers.
Not so, says one of those producers. Dana Brunetti posted a series of tweets disputing Baldwin’s claims, including the zinger that “he has been impersonating Trump a lot, so maybe there was a bit of method acting when writing his book?”

Last week, Warner Bros. released a new Justice League international trailer, which included a shot that featured most of the team together, except for Superman, who is still "deceased" after the events of Batman v Superman, where Superman sacrificed himself to take down Doomsday. Zack Snyder has teased that Superman's presence, or lack thereof, is a major story point in the movie, although it still hasn't been confirmed how he'll come back, or when that will happen in the movie. There is another DC Superhero that we haven't met yet, Green Lantern, who still hasn't been cast yet, but thank to new fan artwork, we can see what Green Lantern may look like alongside the rest of this team.
Instagram user Spidermonkey23 debuted this artwork over the weekend, which features Superman (Henry Cavill), Batman (Ben Affleck), The Flash (Ezra Miller), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher »
