'Electra': Theater Review

15 hours ago | 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. Thomas rightly

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 Says She'd Be "Thinner" If She Wasn't In A Relationship

12 September 2014 | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Kirsten Dunst is comfortable with a few extra pounds.The actress opens up to Net-a-porter magazine, where she reveals that's she's gained some weight since being in a relationship with boyfriend Garrett Hedlund. "I’ve got a little bit more of a tummy now, so although I own about 20 pairs of jeans, I’ll wear the same three for a year because the rest are from when I was skinnier," tells the mag. 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. When you’re with someone, you eat so much more and you chill out a bit – but I don’t criticize myself more than is healthy, because there’s such a lot of that, isn’t there?

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 »

My Old Lady Movie Review

My Old Lady | 2014 Tiff Review

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.

Margot Robbie Could Lead the Live-Action ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Remake

4 September 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Margot Robbie made audiences know her name in a big way last year as Jordan Belfort’s second, more glamorous (sorry, Cristin Milioti) and gloriously assertive Brooklynite, lingerie-designing wife in The Wolf of Wall Street. Since then, she has been racking up the lead roles. It doesn’t take much more than a nod from Martin Scorsese to let everyone know you’re alright. The Australian actress has a full roster of upcoming projects: she stars opposite Will Smith in the rom-com caper Focus, will appear alongside Michelle Williams and Kristin Scott Thomas in the French WWII flick Suite Française, is exploring a post-apocalyptic landscape with Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Z for Zachariah and swinging onto the big screen as the next Jane to Alexander Skarsgard’s Tarzan. Robbie clearly hasn’t pegged herself down as being a specific kind of actress, and she’s furthering that perception by entering early talks to star in »

10 Observations About Allison Williams' Pic as Peter Pan

3 September 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first press photo of Allison Williams as the title character in NBC's live musical version of "Peter Pan" is here. It is... fascinating. It looks like an illustration on a package of colored pencils, and we can't stop staring at it. We have 10 observations about this priceless picture. 1. Apparently Never Never Land is just a backdrop at Sears.  2. Judging by his outfit, Peter Pan is the naughtiest Bennigan's waiter of all time.  3. If Peter is so imaginative, why does he buy sale items at Topshop? 4. The fishnet sleeves make us believe Peter is going to be Joan Jett someday. 5. Allison is here to prove that "Peter Pan" is shorthand for "Young Peter Gallagher in a Kohl's Catalog." 6. This show will be a hybrid of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Tomb Raider." 7. Peter Pan wears shorts and boots because he secretly wants to grow up to be Heidi from "Tool Time. »
