Because The Family TV show was cancelled, last night's first season finale on ABC was also TV series finale. The Family, "What Took So Long," was a cliffhanger, to say the least. The Family TV series creator, Jenna Bans, says the season one cliffhanger was always in the cards for the drama series.

ABC Cancels ‘The Family’ After One Season

12 May 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As ABC made pickups and renewals on Thursday, it also announced that Joan Allen-fronted rookie drama “The Family” won’t be returning for a second season.

The series, which wraps its run with its finale this Sunday, has been a low-rated performer on Sundays for ABC this spring, though it had shown some signs of life with consistent growth over a stretch of weeks. Season to date, it has averaged a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.4 million viewers overall in “live plus-3” estimates from Nielsen.

The thriller followed the return of a politician’s young son who was presumed dead after disappearing over a decade earlier. As the mysterious young man is welcomed back into his family, suspicions emerge — is he really who he says he is?

Allison Pill, Margot Bingham, Zach Gilford, Liam James, Floriana Lima, Madeleine Arthur, Rarmian Newton, Rupert Graves and Andrew McCarthy also star.

‘Room’ Review

11 May 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Sean Bridgers, Wendy Crewson, Sandy McMaster, Matt Gordon, Amanda Brugel, Joe Pingue, Joan Allen, William H. Macy | Written by Emma Donoghue | Directed by Lenny Abrahamson

A room is an enclosed space, no matter how many windows it has. It is a confinement that restricts our world while we are in it. In Room, there are many rooms that restrict the world of Ma (Brie Larson) and Jack (Jacob Tremblay) and some they may not escape…

In Room we meet Jack on his fifth birthday, living in his little world that he was born into. Trapped within the 10-by-10-foot space they are held there by Old Nick (Sean Bridgers). When Ma realises that they have to escape the room, Jack fights it, not believing that the outside world exists. When they finally escape though, they find their biggest battle is surviving a life outside the walls of Room. »

Stage Door: The Crucible w/ Ben Whishaw & Saoirse Ronan

25 April 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

On Monday's (the "dark" night for many shows) Stage Door, we talk theater ...and often its film connections.

Arthur Miller's classic allegory about the Salem witch trials The Crucible is back on Broadway for a limited engagement currently scheduled to run through July. Expect Tony nominations as it's a gripping night of theater with high profile actors like Saoirse Ronan as the vengeful aggressive Abigail, fresh off her Oscar nomination, and acclaimed Brits Ben Whishaw and Sophie Okonedo as the doomed Proctors.

The Crucible has only been adapted to cinema twice, once in French in 1957 and most famously in English in 1996 with Winona Ryder, Daniel Day Lewis and Joan Allen (Oscar-Nominated) in the principle roles. That film was no classic so it's easy for the current production to obliterate it in the mind's eye. But for Joan Allen's utterly brilliant rendering of Goody Proctor. [More...]

Spielberg fund backs Warsaw Ghetto documentary

25 April 2016 3:29 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

May shoot for Who Will Write Our History about the Oyneg Shabes archive; Nancy Spielberg produces with support from Steven Spielberg-chaired fund.

Shoot will begin on May 5, 2016, on Roberta Grossman’s Who Will Write Our History, the feature documentary telling the story of the hidden ‘Oyneg Shabes’ archive of 30,000 documents buried in 1943 on the eve of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.

The film is executive-produced by Nancy Spielberg and has received support from the Righteous Persons Foundation which her brother Steven Spielberg set up with proceeds from his 1994 film, Schindler’s List.

Oscar nominee Joan Allen is to provide narration for the film which is based on Samuel Kassow’s well-received 2007 book of the same name.

The Oyneg Shabes archive is the extraordinarily revealing hoard of letters, confessionals, last testaments, poems and questionnaires compiled under the guidance of Jewish historian Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw Ghetto during the Nazi occupation.

The award will be presented at the April 25 awards night for the 59th San Francisco International Film Festival at Fort Mason Center’s Herbst Pavilion.

Ellen Burstyn’s extraordinary career in film and television has provided some of cinema’s most indelible performances,” said Noah Cowan, the festival’s executive director. “She has collaborated with some of the medium’s finest directors over many years and in a remarkable range of genres. Her recent performance in Todd Solondz’s ‘Wiener-Dog’ is perhaps her bravest yet — caustic, sincere and unforgettable.”

On The Family When Hell Freezes Over…You’re Still in Hell

13 April 2016 12:52 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

My reaction to the first half of The Family, “All the Livelong Day” is in the ballpark of some of my reactions to the 2015 film,  Room.  It’s not simply because both feature someone captured and held in a small living space for some deranged man to regularly sexually assault whomever he’s captured.  Nor are my reactions because the actress Joan Allen was featured in Room and is starring in The Family.  The two characters, Claire Warren in The Family  and Jack’s grandmother Nancy in Room, are so different from each other that if you didn’t see the credits you might not immediately realize it’s the same

Scream Factory set to send the Tooth Fairy your way with May 24th Collector’s Edition release of Manhunter!!; Full Specs Announced!

12 April 2016 1:32 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

While a lot of people tend to reference The Silence Of The Lambs as their introduction to all things Hannibal Lecter, I grew up adoring the hell out of Michael Mann’s 1986 thriller Manhunter. Brian Cox did one hell of a job as the notorious cannibal, with both William Petersen (To Live And Die In La) and Tom Noonan (Heat, Late Phases) aiding in making the film an absolute classic, one of the few perfect thrillers.

Thanks to the wonderful gang at Scream Factory, it looks like we’re getting an Epic Collector’s Edition Bluray release of the film, one that is Very loaded with brand new special features and two version of the film. Will you fright fanatics be picking this one up? God knows I’ll be.

The Family season 1 episode 7 is promising to be one emotional upheaval after another!  The aftermath of learning what happened to ten-year-old Adam Warren doesn’t look like it’s going to be bringing much peace to anyone – especially not to Claire Warren (Joan Allen) or her daughter Willa (Alison Pill).  Here’s the press release synopsis: In dramatic flashbacks we find out about Adam’s return to Red Pines, which plays out against the emotional backdrop of Willa’s long-held secrets and lies. We get a glimpse of what Adam went through in captivity and Hank’s desperate state of mind while incarcerated.

The Family, “I Win” manages to answer a major question without getting viewers any closer to understanding what’s going on!  It deftly continues to paint Claire Warren (Joan Allen) in shades of gray but also gives us more disturbing information that pushes the envelope on what you think you believe about pedophiles.  There are monstrous pedophiles, but perhaps not all pedophiles are monsters?  ABC’s The Family continues to play with our perceptions about everything! The Setup The Family, “I Win” is the first episode that doesn’t open up with a voiceover monologue.  By the time it’s over you get why.  There

The Family Boss on That Big Adam Reveal: 'It's Not a Bait-and-Switch'

27 March 2016 6:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Fans of The Family, there’s something you should know: Series creator Jenna Bans has been holding out on you.

Long before the ABC drama came to fruition, when it was just a story pitched in a boardroom, Bans knew the major twist she’d eventually reveal to viewers: that the returned Adam Warren is, in fact, an impostor, a revelation that was made in the final moments of Sunday’s episode.

But if you’re feeling skeptical about Adam’s paternity-test results — and we wouldn’t blame you, considering they came from a coffee mug and a used Q-Tip »

Aside from the superb acting – for starters, Joan Allen is in it as matriarch Claire Warren – ABC’s The Family has a solid mystery/thriller going on.  We have no idea who the returned Adam Warren (Liam James) is, but we know he was seriously abused.  As for Tom (Michael Esper) – the man who took him but apparently has no desire to get him back or silence him – what’s his deal? In The Family, “Feathers or Steel” – which will air this Sunday, March 20th, 2016, Detective Nina Meyer (Margot Bingham) and FBI Agent Gabe Clements (Matthew Lawler) are closing in on Adam’s
