Michelle Williams Is Tempted By Desire In Trailer For WWII Drama Suite Francaise

23 October 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

World War II dramas are prime contenders for Oscar consideration. It’s an accepted fact. Yet, The Weinstein Company are steering one of their upcoming titles, Suite Francaise, toward a far less starry showcase. Its world premiere will take place at the American Film Market in Santa Monica this November – and depending on its reception, it may hit Us screens in the new year. Whatever happens, there’s still plenty of buzz surrounding the pic, which looks to contain another compelling performance from Michelle Williams.

Based on the best-selling novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the film is set during the German occupation of France and chronicles a romantic affair between an unlikely couple. Williams takes on the role of a French woman who falls for a Nazi officer (Matthias Schoenaerts) who commandeers charge of her town.

The latest trailer that’s arrived today focuses on the tension between the couple, as »

Watch: Michelle Williams & Matthias Schoenaerts Take On A Forbidden Love In The Trailer For First ‘Suite Francaise’

23 October 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Where’s The Weinstein Company’s “Suite Francaise,” a movie many assumed would be an Oscar player? Well, it will make its world premiere at the American Film Market, among 90 other premieres, in November. And Afm is for buyers and distributors, so it’s the opposite of the splashy premiere that you might expect from TWC. In fact, if you’re being cynical or conspiracy theory-like, you might think they're trying to unload the picture since they already own it. But that's nothing but speculation for now. Regardless, the picture stars Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts as two diametrically opposed people who embark on a forbidden affair. Set during World War II, during the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, Williams plays a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier (Schoenaerts) stationed to look over her township. Co-starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Sam Riley, the film is »

Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson Face Off over Custody of Their Toddler

15 October 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Uma Thurman's former fiancé, French financier Arpad Busson, has filed suit in Manhattan over custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Luna. The actress, who lives in New York City, began dating the London-based multimillionaire in 2007 after meeting at a dinner in Milan, two years after she and actor Ethan Hawke divorced. She has two children with Hawke - Maya, 16, and Levon, 12. "It is unfortunate that this very private discussion regarding Mr. Busson's visitation rights and his participation in decision making has been made public," a spokesperson for Thurman tells People in a statement.

War Films at the Oscars

13 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor

Set during the final months of World War II, Fury follows a tank commander (played by Brad Pitt) and his crew as they head into Nazi Germany as part of the Allies’ final push. The film also stars Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, John Bernthal and Michael Pena. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy said the film is “a modern version of the sort of movie Hollywood turned out practically every week back in the 1940s and 1950s.” Fury opens Oct. 17.

Could Fury score a best picture nomination at the 87th Academy Awards? Both war biopics and fictional war films — about real wars or battles — have historically done well at the Oscars; however, the current projections show that the race will be a tight one. Here’s a look at some of the fictional war films that scored nominations for best picture:

Ten Best Actress Nominees Who Were Nominated for Heartbreaking Films (Spoilers)

3 October 2014 8:42 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The Fault in Our Stars features Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus “Gus” Waters, two teens who meet at a cancer-survivor support group. Though Hazel is initially skeptical about getting close to Gus and warns him of her worsening condition, Gus still falls for her. As the two fall in love, Gus relapses, and he dies shortly after they return from their romantic trip to Amsterdam. The adaptation of John Green’s novel of the same name was a box-office smash and has earned Woodley some Oscar buzz. Should Woodley receive a nomination for this role, she would join the list of best actress nominees who have been nominated for their roles in heartbreaking films.

Some of the most well-known tragic love stories didn’t score any leading actress nominations, though. For example, Natalie Wood was not nominated for her »

'Electra': Theater Review

1 October 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Further cementing a fruitful professional partnership after their successful collaborations on The Seagull, Betrayal and Old Times in London and New York, Kristin Scott Thomas and director Ian Rickson come up with the goods again for Electra, a powerhouse rendition of Sophocles’ classic tragedy. Staged in the round at London's Old Vic using Frank McGuinness’ 1997 adaptation of the text, the production strikes a smart balance between antiquity and modernity. Sparse, period-suggestive but not literal design and eerie music (by rock star Pj Harvey) rub up against instantly accessible performances, stippled with surprisingly effective moments of humor.

DVD Review: 'Before the Winter Chill'

22 September 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆French director Philippe Claudel's noirish new thriller Before the Winter Chill (2013), starring Kristin Scott Thomas and Daniel Auteuil, follows the fortunes of middle-aged couple who find their marriage threatened by a troubled young woman. Paul (Auteuil) is a successful surgeon, popular with the staff at his clinic and his patients. His wife Lucie (Scott Thomas) spends her days tending their impressively large garden, baby-sitting their grand-daughter and visiting her depressed sister who is often sectioned. When red roses start arriving for Paul at the clinic and at home, the cracks in their marriage begin to appear. Lucie is obviously bored and isolated by her husband's career and long hours.

Liam Neeson Wanted For "Tell No One"

18 September 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Liam Neeson is being courted to star in an American film adaptation of Harlan Coben's novel "Tell No One" at Warner Bros. Pictures and Universal Pictures.

The story follows a pediatrician out on a lake with his wife when she suddenly vanishes and he is attacked. She turns up dead and is declared the victim of a serial killer.

Years later, more bodies turn up and the doctor becomes the prime suspect, while at the same time he is given evidence that his wife wasn’t dead at all and has gone into hiding for something related to the work she did.

Chris Terrio ("Argo") is adapting the script for this version and will reportedly have to do more work on it before Neeson will officially attach himself. It will happen, but is probably a little while off yet.

The film follows Guillaume Canet's well-regarded and internationally successful »

Kirsten Dunst Talks Child Stars: "The Transition Doesn't Happen To Many Of Us"I guess if I wasn’t comfortable and in a relationship I’d be thinner.

My Old Lady

12 September 2014 1:25 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith, and Kristin Scott Thomas are three of my favorite actors. If you share that opinion, I think you’ll agree that watching My Old Lady is time well spent, even though the film leaves something to be desired. Israel Horovitz makes his directorial debut with this adaptation of his 2002 play, which starts out with great promise and a lighthearted tone. It grows more serious as the story unfolds and reveals all too clearly its origins as a stage piece. The premise is certainly auspicious. Financially and emotionally impoverished Kline arrives in Paris to claim his inheritance, a spacious and desirable apartment, only to find that his father purchased the ...

Specialty Box Office Preview: James Gandolfini’s ‘The Drop’, ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them’, More

11 September 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The upcoming weekend boasts an onslaught of new Specialty titles vying for audiences. In all likelihood, however, many will have a short big screen life as the fall’s awards contenders ramp up and crowd others out. Five of this week’s dozen-plus newcomers are spotlighted here with Fox Searchlight’s The Drop edging on a wide release. The feature starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini will bow in over 800 theaters. TWC’s The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby also joins the fray with a platform release. The film also has two accompanying titles told from the perspective of its two main characters, which will be released in more limited runs in October. Magnolia will open its thriller Honeymoon in a day and date release while Dada Films’ Swearnet: The Movie breaks a movie record with the most F-bombs ever. And Cohen Media Group’s My Old Lady bowed Wednesday in limited release. »

My Old Lady – The Review

11 September 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Starring Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline and Kristin Scott Thomas, My Old Lady is already my favorite film of the year. Based on the play by Israel Horovitz, who also adapted and directed for the screen, this charming “dramedy” hits the mark at every turn.

Kline plays Mathias Gold, a down on his luck New Yorker and recovering alcoholic who has inherited an enormous Paris apartment from his estranged father. Thinking he can quickly flip the valuable property for a fast buck, he shows up to find 90-year old tenant Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith) living there with her adult daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas).

Mathias soon learns from local real estate agent Monsieur Lefebvre (played perfectly by scene stealing French character actor Dominique Pinon) that the deal is a “viager” – a uniquely French system whereby the buyer doesn’t take legal possession of the property until the seller dies (one of »

‘My Old Lady’ Review: Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline Dazzle as Light Comedy Gives Way to Drama

10 September 2014 5:51 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

To look at the poster for “My Old Lady,” or to hear its cast and plot synopsis, is to brace oneself for cuteness and whimsy. Kevin Kline as an American who inherits a beautiful old Paris apartment? Maggie Smith as the property's un-budging nonagenarian resident? Throw in Kristin Scott Thomas as Smith's brittle daughter, and you can already imagine the jokes, the arguments, the learning, the loving and the adorability heading your way by the end of 90 minutes.

Francophone Comedy My Old Lady Never Quite Makes Sense

9 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

My Old Lady sounds like a title from the days of screwball comedy, a genre in which director Israel Horovitz's adaptation of his own play might have fared better.

Concerning the French property release scheme known as viager, wherein a buyer pays a monthly fee in exchange for ownership when the seller one day kicks the bucket, the film stars a blustery Kevin Kline as Mathias Gold, an itinerant heir arrived in Paris to claim his late father's property, and Maggie Smith as Mathilde, a nonagenarian who, it turns out, is legally tied to the apartment. Her daughter, Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas), meets Mathias when he bursts in on her in the john; later, she indignantly declares him an "imbecile."

It sounds like a recipe for comedy (and Kline seems to th »

Seeds of Yesterday: Horovitz’s Debut a Tonally Uncomfortable Adaptation

Playwright and screenwriter Israel Horovitz makes his directorial debut with My Old Lady, an adaptation of his own play which originally opened back in 2002. At times a richly observed portrait of coming to terms with the traumatic events of the past when we’re finally forced to, more often than not, the film’s awkward tonal shifts lends the film a generally unpleasant ambience. There’s no smooth segue from its belabored setup from hokey comedy to unctuous soap opera of seedy family secrets. Fans of its three main star attractions will find Kline, Smith, and Scott-Thomas in overall fine form, though the artificial quality of the material often makes their interactions feel forced.
