Revisiting "Crimes of the Heart"

7 June 2017 12:45 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

In honor of Diane Keaton’s AFI Lifetime Achievement Award tomorrow, here’s Eric Blume with a look back at Crimes of the Heart (1986)

Beth Henley won a Pulitzer Prize in 1981 for her play Crimes of the Heart, and five years later it was retooled by Henley herself in a film version directed by Bruce Beresford.  The film teamed three of the biggest actresses of the 80’s:  Diane Keaton as the oldest spinster sister Lenny, Jessica Lange as saucy middle child Meg, and Sissy Spacek as spacey youngest Babe.   

Keaton is forced to carry the film for the first ten minutes out of the gate, and she’s strapped with some clunky exposition.  She feels tentative, which is partly aligned with her character, but in a way where she feels not fully assured, like she’s finding her way into the role.  Her Southern accent doesn’t come easily to her, »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actress in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New blood is bound to infuse the category this year as four of last year’s nominees (including winner Maggie Smith of “Downton Abbey”) are ineligible. Smith’s show came to an end, and the three other nominees were for “Game of Thrones,” a series that returns in July, thus missing the deadline for 2017. That’s good news for two of last year’s nominees, Maura Tierney (“The Affair”) and Constance Zimmer (“UnReal”), who could repeat this year. It also opens the door for previous winner Uzo Aduba (“Orange Is the New Black”) to return, along with Margo Martindale, who won in the guest category last year on “The Americans” and has been promoted to supporting this year. But there are several new shows to consider, and many introduced brand new faces we’ve come to love. Two virtual unknowns won our hearts in the past year: Millie Bobby Brown on “Stranger Things” and Chrissy Metz on »

Performer of the Week: Justin Theroux

3 June 2017 6:46 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Justin Theroux

The Show | The Leftovers

The Episode | “The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)” (May 28, 2017)

The Performance | Say you had a friend unfamiliar with the caliber and breadth of Theroux’s work. You could try to explain to them that he’s a god among actors, a force of nature as powerful and unpredictable as a tornado. Or you could just sit them down and have them watch his HBO drama’s penultimate episode.

Though “The Most Powerful Man… ” is as screwy and surreal as its sorta prequel (Season 2’s classic “International »

“A little bit more about how to work with actors – a never-ending study that always reveals new dimensions, partially within the process but mostly in myself.

27 May 2017 10:07 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The following story contains spoilers about Episode 9 of Bloodline‘s just-released third and final season — proceed at your own peril.

Bloodline took a quite a detour before it crossed the finish line.

In the penultimate episode of the Netflix drama’s final season, which dropped on Friday, viewers were given a ringside seat to an extended, presumably near-death hallucination of John’s (Kyle Chandler). The hour-long journey through the far reaches of the eldest Rayburn sibling’s psyche marked the posthumous return of Ben Mendelsohn’s black sheep Danny, who forced his brother to finally face the consequences of his actions (namely, »

‘Bloodline’ Ep Talks Final Season Twists, Ben Mendelsohn’s Return, and ‘Intriguing’ Finale

23 May 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Will the secrets all come out?

Last season of “Bloodline” ended on as taut a cliffhanger as ever, with all the Rayburns’ secrets on the verge of being exposed. Desperate as ever to protect himself, Kevin (Norbert Leo Butz) ended up brutally murdering Detective Marco Diaz (Enrique Murciano), when he realized Marco had figured out that John (Kyle Chandler) had killed Danny (Ben Mendelsohn). Meg (Linda Cardellini) was on the verge of spilling all the family’s secrets to their mother (Sissy Spacey). And our erstwhile hero John Rayburn (Kyle Chandler), was running away from it all, driving away into the Florida darkness.

That this third season — which debuts May 26 on Netflix — would be the last came as a surprise to all involved, when Netflix made the announcement last fall. Here, executive producer Todd A. Kessler — who created and produces the drama along with Daniel Zelman and Glenn Kessler — tells Variety how that decision impacted the plans »

‘Bloodline’: It’s Kyle Chandler To the Rescue in an Exclusive First Look at the Season 3 Premiere — Watch

23 May 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When we last saw John Rayburn (Kyle Chandler), he was driving out into the pitch black Florida night. Whether he was blowing off the considerable amount of steam he’d built up over the course of a tense Season 2, or aiming to leave the Rayburn family and all its complications behind for good, we didn’t know.

But it looks like he’s coming back.

In an exclusive clip from the Season 3 premiere, John gets a phone call from his panicked brother, Kevin (Norbert Leo Butz). And Kevin has good reason to panic, since the last thing he did in Season 2 was murder John’s partner, Marco (Enrique Murciano). But now Kevin’s talking about having some guy “fix it”; essentially trusting a stranger to take care of a family secret not even John is privy to just yet.

The Straight Story

21 May 2017 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

As sunny as Eraserhead was dark, David Lynch’s The Straight Story tells the tale of Alvin Straight’s (Richard Farnsworth) journey to visit his estranged brother. This being a Lynch film, Alvin makes the cross-country trip on top of a John Deere lawnmower, clocking in at a steady five miles an hour. It’s also a true story (as Mark Twain said, “It’s no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.”) Co-starring Sissy Spacek and Harry Dean Stanton and photographed by Freddie Francis.

‘House of Cards’ Review: Season 5 Might Be TV’s Biggest Casualty of the 2016 Election (Spoiler-Free)

8 May 2017 9:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

A bold statement to precede another bold statement: “House of Cards” Season 4 was the best yet for Beau Willimon’s Netflix original series.

What made the fourth season so dramatically satisfying was how its creator and showrunner consistently captured a political authenticity in a world of great melodrama. During the first two seasons, sensationalism reigned supreme as the scale slid closer to “soap” than “drama.” The seasons reveled so much in being bad that they almost broke more bad than good, but Willimon, a vocal political activist, became more and more invested in constructing real-world parallels as the series went on. The shift fit Netflix’s golden designs for the jewel of their Originals’ crown, and Season 4 put the series in fine position to keep telling realistic political stories with powerful resonance.

Then Willimon left, the election happened, and nothing was the same — except, it turns out, “House of Cards. »
