A charmingly retro film recalling the screwball comedies of the 30’s and 40’s, director Bharat Nalluri’s movie covers 24 hours in the life of a bubble-brained singer (played by Amy Adams) and her prim and proper social secretary (played by Frances McDormand). The 2008 film, based on a property that had knocked around Hollywood since 1939 (when it was first offered to Universal), garnered warm critical reviews and was a (very) modest box office success. »

Screenwriter Ron Nyswaner has never shied away from the challenge of switching between different formats of storytelling, having written for film and television -- the latter of which includes credits on "Ray Donovan" and the upcoming season of "Homeland." Therefore, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that his latest venture happens to be a documentary. "She's The Best Thing In It" follows Tony-winning actress Mary Louise Wilson as she tries her hand at teaching the craft of acting to the next generation of performers. The film also features interviews with the likes of Frances McDormand and Melissa Leo, who provide additional commentary various topics related to performing. Although the trailer seems to emphasize Wilson's striking similarity -- both physically and psychologically -- to the late Elaine Stritch, who herself was the subject of a widely beloved 2013 documentary, it would be unfair to both women if we were to take their similarities for. »

Love all things Oscar? Netflix currently has more than a dozen Oscar-winning films to stream, including 12 Best Picture winners ranging from "Marty" to "The Silence of the Lambs." Many racked up multiple awards on Oscar night, a tribute to their excellence or some really great Oscar campaigning. We're looking at you, Harvey Weinstein, who helped push "Shakespeare in Love" and "The English Patient" to Academy glory.

Who says prestige series with top-drawer casts are solely the stuff of cable TV? NBC is chasing HBO-level glory with tonight's premiere of "The Slap," an eight-episode telenovela directed by Lisa Cholodenko. Cholodenko hasn't directed a feature since 2010's edgy lesbian couple comedy "The Kids Are All Right." Why? Like "Transparent" Golden Globe winner Jill Soloway, she is yet another example of a female indie director who has found better opportunities on the small screen. Last weekend, Cholodenko won a DGA Award for her devastatingly good four-part HBO miniseries "Olive Kitteridge"--which premiered at the Venice Film Festival-- starring Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins. Women Directors Reap Directors Guild Documentary and Television Nominations Bounty Her latest TV outing "The Slap" stars Peter Sarsgaard, Uma Thurman, Thandie Newton, Zachary Quinto and Brian Cox. It is based on the 2008 Australian novel by Christos »

It’s not always easy to pin-point where the crush started, but there’s no denying that at some point nearly everyone has been in love with Zooey Deschanel.
In recent years, Deschanel has been easy to locate, appearing weekly on the small screen with “New Girl.” However, she so quietly went from the background to the spotlight that it’s hard to pinpoint when she made her first impression.
Her role as William Miller’s older sister/spirit guide has faded into the background of the film’s lore, eclipsed over the past 15 years in turn by Frances McDormand’s commanding motherly presence, Kate Hudson’s “band-aid” breakthrough and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s manic incarnation of Lester Bangs.
But it was actually Deschanel’s Anita that got the story in motion. She leaves home, but leaves her records »

"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"
This adaptation of the beloved children's book got mixed reviews, but it's fine if you're looking for a rather harmless family feature. Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner co-star as the equally frazzled parents of young Alex (Ed Oxenbould). Check out this exclusive clip!
They say that how you react in an emergency reveals your true nature and feelings. Are you out for number one, or is your family your first concern? A seemingly perfect Swedish family has to face that exact question when an impending avalanche threatens to ruin their ski trip to the Alps.

Both roles initially seem secondary to the male hero in their respective films (Ben Affleck's Nick in the former, Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking in the latter), but gradually come to take over the story in their own right. Here's our pick of nine further films where a heroine usurps her male counterpart.
Women usually get a raw deal in Bond films, so much so that the leads are dismissively referred to as 'Bond girls'. But the casting of Judi Dench as M from 1995's GoldenEye onwards went some way to redressing the gender balance - and by her final outing in Skyfall, she had almost become the protagonist in her own right.
M had always been in a »
The halls are starting to hum softly here in Berlin as the European Film Market swings into gear. The first deals were announced yesterday before the event officially opened, with The Weinstein Co notably boarding Im Global’s The Man Who Made It Snow. This morning, FilmNation unveiled a series of offshore output deals for titles from Open Road, which will kick off with the Jamie Foxx/Michelle Monaghan-starrer Sleepless Nights.
Though it’s not likely to be a frenzy, and with currency concerns in the market internationally, Berlin should see more action in the coming days. Distributors are looking for product for 2016 and beyond, and some memorable buys have emerged here in recent years. In 2014, The Weinstein Company made a record-setting $7M deal for The Imitation Game which has now made about $140M worldwide and has an armful of Oscar nominations to boot.
Much of the pre-buy buzz »

We're knee-deep in awards season at the moment, with all the attendant speculation, drama and controversy you would expect. Who should win? Who was snubbed? Who will fall over before they reach the podium? We're looking at you, Jennifer Lawrence.
Around this time, we tend to realise the shocking number of lauded films from previous years which we still haven't seen. So here's a selection of the best award-winning films you can catch up with on Netflix:
Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 classic hardly needs an introduction from us. The film took three Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor for Marlon Brando, as well as a record five Golden Globes and further nods from the Grammys, and Writers and Directors Guilds of America.
Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in TrainwreckPhoto: Universal Pictures With Sundance just wrapping up and Berlin starting up in a few days, we are now immersed in the year-long barrage of film festivals. One such festival in South By Southwest. A few weeks back they announced the first seven films of their program, including the opening night film Brand: A Second Coming. Today, they have revealed the rest of the features to be shown in March (except for the midnight program), and some of it has me very excited. The bigger titles announced do not do much for me. Paul Feig's Spy, starring Melissa McCarthy, and the Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart starrer Get Hard leave a lot to be desired in terms of anticipation, as does a work in progress cut of Judd Apatow's latest film Trainwreck. I'm guessing an Apatow work in progress is probably around three and a half hours. »

Philip Seymour Hoffman, a man once described as "the best of us" by fellow actor William H. Macy (see below), died a year ago today. If ever an actor warranted a full-oeuvre review, it is Psh. Celebrate his tremendous cinematic legacy with these five titles on Netflix right now. "Punch Drunk Love" Remember when Adam Sandler starred in one of the most touching movies you've ever seen? I know, your brain has since tried to erase that moment out of sheer incomprehensibility. With the exception of "Boogie Nights" (in which Psh is also incredible), "Punch Drunk Love" might be the most universally beloved Paul Thomas Anderson movie. "Almost Famous" Lester Bangs remains the definitive rock critic of the '70s, and Psh's portrayal of the grizzled journo is just one facet of what makes "Almost Famous" enchanting. Frances McDormand, Kate Hudson, and even a wee Zooey Deschanel play fascinating characters »
