A Royal Night Out, film review: Sarah Gadon earns her crown as a princess out to party

14 May 2015 2:20 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

It is Ve Day and the two young princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are "completely cheesed" at being locked away in a "ghastly mausoleum" (that is to say, Buckingham Palace) when the rest of Britain is celebrating. They somehow persuade daddy and mummy (a stuttering Rupert Everett as George VI about to give his king's speech and a clucking Emily Watson as Queen Elizabeth) to allow them out to celebrate "incognito" with the rest of the London crowds. »

Cate Blanchett Opens the Closet Door with Lesbian Romance ‘Carol’

12 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s not surprising that “Carol” was locked away in Hollywood’s development closet for 15 years. Based on Patricia Highsmith’s scandalous 1952 novel “The Price of Salt,” Todd Haynes’ latest movie is a double whammy by industry standards: it’s headlined by two women, who fall in love with each other.

The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara, and premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, arrives at a pivotal, yet paradoxical, time for female-driven stories. There has been a string of hits this year that celebrate female empowerment — from “Insurgent” and “Fifty Shades of Grey” to “Cinderella,” and the upcoming “Trainwreck,” “Spy” and the final installment of “The Hunger Games.” That said, gender inequality both in front of and behind the camera is a hot-button issue in the global entertainment business.

As one of cinema’s most prominent stars, Blanchett, whose recent roles include the evil stepmother in “Cinderella, »

Sarah Gadon on playing the young Princess Elizabeth in 'A Royal Night Out': A Cinderella story in reverse

11 May 2015 9:56 AM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

It is 1945 and King George VI (Rupert Everett) and his wife (Emily Watson), the future Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, are deciding whether to let their teenage daughters go out to celebrate Ve Day. Princess Margaret, aged 14 (Bel Powley), announces that she is "completely cheesed" at being stuck in Buckingham Palace. It is her sister, Princess Elizabeth, aged 19, the future Queen of England (played regally by Sarah Gadon), who finally gets their permission ("Orf you go!"). »

Exclusive Royal Night Out Ve Day Featurette

8 May 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Today marks the anniversary of Ve Day, May 8 1945, when the forces of good defeated Nazi tyranny and the British Army helped teach Hitler a lesson for pointing those giant arrows at us in Dad’s Army. Seventy years ago even Princess Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) was out on the tiles, doing whatever the royal equivalent of selfies was (one-sies?) and cutting loose with her future subjects for the one and only time. At least, that’s the premise for A Royal Night Out. Liberties have been taken with some of the facts, but, as this new featurette shows, real-life events served as inspiration for this alt-fairy tale.   brightcove.createExperiences();On princess duties alongside Maps To The Stars actress Gadon is Bel Powley as the flighty, effervescent Margaret.

A Royal Night Out review: The Queen in a rom-com? We are not amused

6 May 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Julian Jarrold; Screenwriter: Trevor De Silva; Starring: Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley , Emily Watson, Jack Reynor, Rupert Everett; Running time: 97 mins; Certificate: 12A

Her Majesty the Queen may very well be amused by A Royal Night Out, only because it deviates so far from what might plausibly have happened on Ve night, 1945, when she and Princess Margaret celebrated the end of the war in Europe among the commoners on the streets of London. Director Julian Jarrold makes no bones about the fact-less, fancy-freeness of it all, turning a royal anecdote into a screwball comedy of sorts, but where's the punchline?

Up-and-coming Canadian actress Sarah Gadon is a dead ringer for the future monarch "Lilibet" and she imbues her with the requisite youthful whimsy as she yearns to be among the people on this most special night - before the burden of having to rule over them. But Jarrold (Kinky Boots, »

Film Review: ‘A Royal Night Out’

5 May 2015 12:01 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Why have a ballroom with no balls?” trilled Princess Anna in Disney’s 2013 smash “Frozen,” voicing the social (and perhaps sexual) yearnings of any number of repressed, restless princesses in the fairy-tale universe — as well as, if the delightful “A Royal Night Out” is to be believed, the young Queen Elizabeth II herself. Imagining the alternately raucous and romantic exploits of the future English monarch and her sister Margaret as they are let loose upon London for one wild night of Victory in Europe celebrations, Julian Jarrold’s brightly performed exercise in speculative history scores as a frothier, more feminine bookend to “The King’s Speech” — though it’s no less engaging or accomplished. With public interest in British princessdom at a convenient high due to a certain new arrival, this glossy Lionsgate release (less coincidentally timed to capitalize on Ve Day’s 70th anniversary) should ride a dual wave of topicality to royal B. »

Watching My Best Friend’s Wedding With Rom-Com Director (and Superfan) Leslye Headland

21 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Leslye Headland grabs the remote and rewinds. "Wait, something is really interesting here," she says, "because I think they may have used the F-word. It’s huge!" We're watching the beloved yet divisive 1997 rom-com classic My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Headland is right: Julia Roberts (as lovelorn protagonist Julianne) dropped the expletive while explaining why her friend George (Rupert Everett) — now posing as her fiancé — has swooped down to accompany her to the big wedding. “He just came in for a few hours," said Julianne, "to, uh, fuck me.” We scream. What we have here is not just an F-bomb, but the kind that implies actual sex. It's all a little bit scandalous — not that Headland should be blushing, since her films aren't afraid of F-bombs in the least. In her directorial debut Bachelorette, Kirsten Dunst, Lizzy Caplan, and Isla Fisher played some very-r-rated bridesmaids; Headland's new film Sleeping »

It's Not So Bad: Madonna's cover of 'American Pie'

14 April 2015 2:42 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's Not So Bad is a new feature on HitFix where a brave, stupid writer defends an unpopular pop culture subject. Every Madonna fan -- or every Madonna fan worth knowing -- has a bone or two to pick with the woman herself, and that's the way it should be. One of Madonna's primary functions as a pop culture phenomenon is agitator, and I was sufficiently agitated with her Britney lip-lock (because Britney is no Madonna heir, as we've now long understood), her "Hard Candy" album (because Timbaland and Justin Timberlake were her most uninspired choices as collaborators), and the leaden self-seriousness of her Mdna tour (because leaden self-seriousness is not very danceable). Otherwise I'm on board with her impish immortality and obvious potential as a standup comic. I'll always love Madonna. She's like if Marlene Dietrich were an American Gladiator. Thanks to her explosive kiss with Drake at Coachella this weekend, »

Back in November, Screenterrier reported on the casting of Asa Butterfield as lead role Jacob, and Ella Purnell as Peculiar Child Emma Bloom, joining Eva Green in Tim Burton's Peregrine's Home For Peculiars, based upon the best-selling novel 'Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children' by Ransom Riggs.

The unforgettable, thrilling and haunting tale centers on 16-year-old Jacob (played by Asa Butterfield), who follows clues that take him to a mysterious island, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores the abandoned bedrooms and hallways, he discovers that its former occupants were far more than peculiar; they possessed incredible powers. And they may still be alive.

Filming has now commenced and we can meet the young actors making up the rest of the cast of Peculiar Children, who all possess incredible powers.

‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’ Star Joins Elle Fanning in New Movie (Exclusive)

20 March 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bel Powley, star of “Diary of a Teenage Girl,” will join Elle Fanning in period romance “A Storm in the Stars,” to be directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour.

Amy Baer will produce the film for Gidden Media. Joannie Burstein and Rebecca Miller are executive producing.

Emma Jensen’s screenplay centers on the love affair between the charismatic poet Percy Shelley and the brilliant 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin. That tumultuous relationship ultimately inspired her to write “Frankenstein.”

Powley will portray Claire Clairmont, Mary’s stepsister who has a hunger for attention and complicates Mary and Percy’s relationship when she moves in with them.

“Bel is fearless and immensely talented,” Baer said. “She immediately understood Claire – a complicated young woman who struggled in the shadow of her stepsister.”

Sony Pictures Classics picked up North American rights to “Diary of a Teenage Girl” at Sundance for $2 million. The movie, written and directed by Marielle Heller, »

Wonderful First Trailer For Julian Jarrold’s ‘A Royal Night Out’

16 March 2015 12:55 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

This trailer has almost sped by without me noticing but I think it deserves a wider audience as A Royal Night Out looks set to delve into the history of our Queen Elizabeth but also fitting perfectly in with the 70th Anniversary of V.E. Day this year.

The film is set on V.E. Day, 1945 and across the world, people are celebrating the end of the war. Two teenage sisters are allowed out at night for the first time to join the party but these two young souls aren’t your every day youth, their home is Buckingham Palace and our two teenagers are Princess Margaret (Bel Powley) and the future Queen of England, Elizabeth II, played by Sarah Gadon.

Based on untold true events and directed by Julian Jarrold, A Royal Night Out looks like a lot of fun and feels like it’s got a good heart, »
