Six British Movies & TV Shows to Get You in the Mood for the General Election

18 April 2015 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes with six British movies and TV shows to get you in the mood for the General Election…

Despite being a lover of all things available on the big and small screens, Jeremy Paxman and Dimbleby don’t really do it for me as entertaining television. Many of us are sick to the back teeth of watching our glorious Pm candidates squirm under the fluorescent lights of the ITV television studios, or questions about the NHS. While it’s quite nice to laugh at the incompetence of our delightful parliamentary hopefuls and imagine moulding their play-dough-esque faces into different kinds of rotting fruit (just me?), there’s plenty of other ways to get excited for #GE2015 without wanting to throttle yourself with your own hair. Take a browse, for example, through a catalogue of fantastic television and film – where no one fluffs their lines and nearly everyone is better looking than David Cameron. »

Cannes 2015 Line-Up Includes Pixar’s Inside Out; La Tete Haute To Open Festival

16 April 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The 68th Cannes Film Festival is now little under a month away, and Variety has the skinny on the event’s impressive line-up, which includes Carol and French comedy-drama La Tete Haute – itself set to open the festival on May 13 – not to mention the likes of Pixar’s emotional animation Inside Out and Mad Max: Fury Road screening out of competition.

For a full rundown of those candidates in question, you can consult the list down below. Due to take place from May 13 to May 25, it’s expected that more films will be added to the cinematic selection in the coming days, but already the billing is chock full of eye-catching releases. Interestingly, the aforementioned La Tete Haute will be the first festival opener since 1987 to be directed by a female filmmaker, in this case, Emmanuelle Bercot.

The 68th Cannes Film Festival will begin on May 13 and run right through »

Complete 2015 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

16 April 2015 7:22 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup was announced this morning and it's quite impressive as it includes several titles I'd be rushing to line up for, which makes my not going for the second year in a row all the more frustrating. Titles I'd be most excited to see including the new Jacques Audiard movie Dheepan, the new film from Yorgos Lanthimos The Lobster and Denis Villeneuve's Sicario. Matteo Garrone's The Tale of Tales is obviously an exciting title as are Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, Carol from Todd Haynes and Youth from Paolo Sorrentino. Gus Van Sant will arrive on the Croisette with The Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey, Pixar will arrive with Inside Out, Woody Allen's Irrational Man will screen and we already knew Mad Max: Fury Road would screen. I won't lie, seeing the lineup had me considering looking at the bank »

5 Observations About the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Lineup

16 April 2015 4:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: 2015 Cannes Film Festival Reveals Its 68th Lineup Despite the aura of excitement and anticipation surrounding this morning's announcement of the finalists for the 2015 Cannes Film Festival lineup, there were plenty of familiar ingredients: Yet another Woody Allen movie ("Irrational Man"). Yet another Pixar movie ("Inside Out"). Another high profile actor stepping behind the camera for the first time (Natalie Portman's "A Tale of Love and Darkness"). Virtually no documentaries whatsoever (only the Amy Winehouse portrait "Amy" landed a slot in the midnight section). But while many of these titles hold potential and some might even be really good, the best thing about Cannes is that the prominent names appear alongside others that under different circumstances might not receive nearly as much exposure. It's far too early for anyone to pass judgement on the overall quality of the Cannes lineup, but the festival certainly cast a wide »

Cannes Unveils 2015 Official Selection Lineup

16 April 2015 3:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-studded English-language dramas from Todd Haynes, Gus Van Sant, Denis Villeneuve, Justin Kurzel, Paolo Sorrentino and Matteo Garrone will vie for the Palme d’Or alongside new films by Valerie Donzelli, Jacques Audiard, Hou Hsiao-hsien and Jia Zhangke at the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival, which unveiled its official selection lineup on Thursday.

While there are only two U.S. directors in competition — Haynes with “Carol,” a 1950s lesbian love story starring Cate Blanchett, and Van Sant with his suicide drama “The Sea of Trees,” pairing Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe — this year’s Palme race looks to feature more high-profile Hollywood talent than any in recent memory. Canada’s Villeneuve (“Prisoners,” “Enemy”) will bring his Mexican drug-cartel drama “Sicario,” with Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin, while Australia’s Kurzel (“The Snowtown Murders”) secured a Palme berth for “Macbeth,” his Shakespeare adaptation toplining Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. »

Freida Pinto Talks Tabletop Dancing, Breakups, and Considering TV

16 April 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Freida Pinto would like two poached eggs, but the trouble is, only one arrived with her avocado toast and salad. Protein, she says, is essential on a day like today. With impeccable manners, 30-year-old Pinto asks for her order to be corrected. I feel for the woman. She's working through lunch and talking with me at the restaurant in New York's Crosby Street Hotel during what's an already long press day for her new film, Desert Dancer. Source: Popsugar Photography / Allie Merriam Without further ado, another egg arrives. All is well. Getting Desert Dancer to theaters has taken some time. The movie, which began filming almost three years ago, is about a group of friends in Iran whose shared passion for dance leads to trouble. It's loosely based on the true story of the performer Afshin Ghaffarian. The film became something of a passion project for Pinto, who undertook a year of rigorous dance study, »
