A Little Chaos movie review: necessary fantasy

17 April 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Romantic and funny and smart and wise and just plain different. This is a historical costume dramedy romp about gardening. How cool is that? I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Historical fantasy! Nope, there are no dragons or wizards or magic. But it’s fantasy nevertheless. And of a very welcome sort. Of a very necessary sort.

In Paris in 1682, King Louis Xiv is preparing to move his court from the Louvre in the city to the countryside palace at Versailles, and he wants gardens that he likens, not in any metaphorical way, to the divine: “Heaven shall be here,” he commands. No small task, then, for royal gardener and landscape architect André Le Notre. And Le Notre takes a real chance when he dares to hire, for one section of the gardens, »

Lionsgate Films has newly acquired UK and Irish distribution rights to the film from Hanway.

The Limehouse Golem is set in 1880, in the dangerous Limehouse district of London where a series of grisly murders have shaken the community. The press claim they’re the work of The Golem - a legendary creature from dark times - and the »

Alan Rickman: having a film career is a bit of a surprise

16 April 2015 6:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The British actor-director revealed stories from Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood and his latest film, A Little Chaos.

Alan Rickman entertained a select audience in London last night with stories from nearly 30 years in movies.

Speaking on stage at the latest BAFTA: A Life In Pictures event, the actor-director revealed how his first exposure to film was at school with titles like Ealing comedy The Titfield Thunderbolt, before going to art school and encountering his first major influences: Antonioni and Fellini.

“But I don’t know that I thought this would be part of my life,” he recalled. “To be perfectly honest, having a film career at all is a bit of a surprise.”

After going to Rada at 25, Rickman established himself on stage and TV, and didn’t star in his first film until his early 40s. That film just happened to be the blockbuster action hit Die Hard.

Kate Winslet reveals embarrassing wardrobe malfunction

16 April 2015 1:26 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Kate Winslet nearly flashed guests at a recent 60th birthday party. The 39-year-old actress wore a tight-fitting dress to the bash, but nearly suffered a huge embarrassment after going to the toilet when the full-length zip snapped. Kate - who is married to businessman Ned Rocknroll - explained: ''I was at a 60th birthday party, feeling great, wearing a dress that could be unzipped from the bottom or the top. ''So my husband, Ned, puts me into the dress at home no problem, but when everyone started to move into be seated for dinner I needed a wee, so I said to Ned, 'Go on I'll see you in there'. ''I unzipped it from the bottom, sat down, had a wee - no problem - stood up, zipped it back up, and the zip came off in my hand. ''I was stood there, knowing everyone is pretty far away »

'Finding Neverland': Theater Review

15 April 2015 12:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It had enough admirers to snag several Oscar nominations, including best picture, but I confess I found the 2004 movie Finding Neverland a decorous yawn, starring a somnambulant Johnny Depp opposite Kate Winslet in a role that under-utilized her talents. But the preciousness and mawkish emotional manipulation of the movie seem like the austere work of a Michael Haneke by comparison with this long-aborning stage musical adaptation. Bombastic and exhausting, the show confuses childishness with an affinity for the child inside, at times recalling Wicked in its busily assaultive hyperactivity, but without that show's catchy songs or engaging

A Little Chaos review: Kate Winslet leads Alan Rickman's period drama

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

Director: Alan Rickman; Screenwriter: Alan Rickman, Jeremy Brock, Alison Deegan; Starring: Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman, Stanley Tucci, Jennifer Ehle, Matthias Schoenaerts, Helen McCrory; Running time: 117 mins; Certificate: 12A

The famous gardens at Versailles provide the backdrop for this dewy-eyed period romance with Kate Winslet and Matthias Schoenaerts, although they have to wade through a lot of mud before the flowers come into bloom. Alan Rickman directs in a laissez-faire style as well as playing a supporting role as the French 'Sun King' Louis Xiv who presides over their efforts to create horticultural perfection. It's the stuff of Sunday night TV drama, for winding down with tea and cake. Very civilised.

The problem is that Rickman had obviously hoped to get pulses racing with 17th-century mores creating a pressure cooker environment for landscape architect Sabine De Barra (Winslet) and the King's master landscaper Andre Le Notre (Schoenaerts) as they get to »

Watch: 7 Clips From 'A Little Chaos' Starring Kate Winslet And Matthias Schoenaerts

14 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The period comedy/romance "A Little Chaos" hasn't had the easiest ride. Selected as the Closing Night film at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, it was met with a rather muted response. Then, after being scheduled for a theatrical release in March, the film was pushed back and will now get a simultaneous VOD/limited release bow in the summer. Not exactly what we expect from a movie starring Kate Winslet, but today you can get your own sense of the film with seven clips. Read More: First Look At Kate Winslet In 'A Little Chaos' Alan Rickman directs and stars in the movie alongside Matthias Schoenaerts and Helen McCrory, and the story follows the clash between an architect and a landscape designer who work together in building one of the main gardens at King Louis Xiv’s palace at Versailles in 17th century France.

Alan Rickman interview: A Little Chaos, villains, Doctor Who

14 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Alan Rickman chats to us about directing, Anthony Minghella, movie villains and A Little Chaos...

"Where does Den Of Geek come from as a title?", asked Alan Rickman as I settled into my seat to interview him for his second film as director, A Little Chaos. I don't usually write one of those setting the scene preambles for interviews, but there was something really quite special about hearing Alan Rickman's voice in person for the first time.

In truth, as I walked through the door, I had no idea what to expect. Would Rickman be curt? Frosty? Would he want to cut out my heart with a spoon?

None of the above. He was as you'd hope: both brilliant, and Alan Rickman. And here's how the interview went...

I've travelled down from the Midlands for this interview, and been walking through London this morning. And I've walked past lots »

Film Review: 'A Little Chaos'

14 April 2015 1:46 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ For his second feature as director - following on from the Emma Thompson-starring The Winter Guest (1997) - Alan Rickman brings audiences the period folly A Little Chaos (2014), a film as mildly diverting and inoffensive as its title suggests. Based on a true story and adapted from ex-Casualty star Alison Deegan's debut screenplay, the film tells of a most ostensibly mundane period of King Louis Xiv's tenure at Versailles, doing so in an entirely lightweight and likable manner that, though befitting a casual ITV costume drama, is saved by a wealth of assured hands both on and off screen. Set in 1682, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet plays widowed, green-fingered landscape designer Sabine De Barra.

2015 Summer Movies Heading To Your Local Cinemas

13 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

Watch: Official Trailer for Alan Rickman's 'A Little Chaos' (Plus a Poster)

13 April 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Focus World, the alternative distribution arm of Focus Features, has released the official trailer and poster for Alan Rickman's romantic drama A Little Chaos, both of which you can check out below. The film, which debuted at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, marks Rickman's first time behind the camera since his 1997 debut The Winter Guest. There is hardly a consensus to be found among the reviews online for Rickman's latest, but many have at least praised Kate Winslet's turn as Sabine, a pioneering landscape designer who is building a garden at Versailles for King Louis Xiv. I'd also add that, based on the trailer, it's probably safe to assume Stanley Tucci's hat and wig play prominent supporting roles. From the synopsis, "Sabine struggles with class barriers as she becomes romantically entangled with the court's renowned landscape artist." In addition to Winslet and Tucci, Helen McCrory, Alan Rickman, »
