29 July 2015 4:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

With the exception of Cary Fukunaga’s Beasts of No Nation and Tom Hooper’s The Danish Girl, the nineteen other films in Venice Film Festival’s contention for the Golden Lion won’t be mentioned during awards season, but who cares when you have the likes of Aleksander Sokurov, Luca Guadagnino and Marco Bellocchio in the line-up. Not unlike previous years, the 2015 edition has a good numbers of films from Italy and the U.S., with several France co-productions littered throughout and the addition of fresh faces with first time works from composer Piero Messina and artist/musician Laurie Anderson.

Venice Fest Reveals Robust Lineup Featuring Hollywood Stars and International Auteurs

29 July 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome — The Venice Film Festival has unveiled a potentially strong lineup with enough studio/specialty titles toplining A-list stars — including Jake Gyllenhaal (“Everest”), Johnny Depp (“Black Mass”) and Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (“The Danish Girl”) — to boost its role as a classy awards-season platform, plus new works by Charlie Kaufman, Alexander Sokurov, Amos Gitai, Marco Bellocchio and many other high-caliber international auteurs.

As previously announced, Baltasar Kormakur’s mountain-climbing thriller “Everest” from Universal, starring Gyllenhaal, will open Venice out of competition on Sept. 2 — a nice coup for artistic director Alberto Barbera, segueing from “Birdman” as opener last year, and sci-fi thriller “Gravity” in 2013.

With Toronto less aggressive in its push to secure more world preems, Venice is bowing several hot titles — including Cary Fukunaga’s child-soldier drama “Beasts of No Nation,” Atom Egoyan’s “Remember” and Tom McCarthy’s “Spotlight,” featuring Michael Keaton’s first post-“Birdman” screen appearance — that are subsequently Toronto-bound. »

DVD Review: 'While We're Young'

28 July 2015 6:36 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ For his sixth feature as writer-director, Noah Baumbach continues a newly prolific streak with While We're Young (2014), which furthers his approach to infusing his cinema with his own thoughts, feelings and verdicts on specific areas of contemporary culture. Where his previous film, the monochrome crowd-pleaser Frances Ha (2012), saw him breaking from the existential miserablism that has peppered his films thus far, this sees Baumbach taking an honest look at what it's like to grow old in a world of retro hipsterism, to mostly successful results. In his best role since his first collaboration with the director - the brilliantly acerbic Greenberg (2010) - Ben Stiller plays documentary filmmaker Josh.

On my radar: Greta Gerwig’s cultural highlights

26 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The mumblecore star on Colm Tóibín’s writing about poetry, the surprising allure of Peaky Blinders and the restoration of Satyajit Ray’s cinema classics

Greta Gerwig, 31, was born in California. After graduating from Barnard College, plans to become a playwright were derailed by involvement in the mumblecore scene. The awkward and naturalistic film genre saw her collaborate with director Joe Swanberg on films such as 2007’s Hannah Takes the Stairs. Her role in Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg (2010) earned her an Independent Spirit nomination for best female lead. She co-scripted 2013’s Frances Ha with her by now partner Baumbach, her part in which saw her nominated for a Golden Globe and a London Film Critics’ Circle award. Her new film Eden, directed by Mia Hansen-Løve, is out now.

While We’re Young Blu-ray Review

21 July 2015 5:05 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Noah Baumbach

Starring: Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 94 minutes

Special Features: The Cast / Working with director Noah Baumbach / Generation Tech / Working with Charles Grodin / Hip-Hop Class / Theatrical Trailer

Noah Baumbach’s While We’re Young bridges the gap between the 20-something movies where people try and find ‘themselves’ and wraps it into the world of Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 but, saying that, still holds all the unique quirks and intelligence of Baumbach’s previous work. With a smart cast of Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver, Amanda Seyfried and Charles Grodin, here you find an honest and entertaining exploration of what it feels like to grow older without dragging its desires in cliché.

Josh (Stiller) and Cornelia (Watts) are our happy middle-aged couple, whatever that age is, who have noticed everyone around them is settling down, having kids and they »
