Sundance Wish List: 70 Films We Hope Will Head to Park City in 2018
The fall is often perceived as the launch pad for awards season, as numerous prestige films compete for attention in the final weeks of the year. For much of the film community, however, it’s also the first major window into movies worth talking about next year. That’s because the Sundance Film Festival lineup typically drops in the middle of November, shaking up the holiday season with a mixture of familiar faces and newcomers who could make an impact in Park City this January. With programmers working in overdrive to complete the lineup in the coming weeks, and filmmakers praying to break through as the deadlines loom, we’ve cobbled together as much intel as we can for this extensive preview featuring dozens of promising titles that stand a good chance at making their way to Sundance this year. As usual, we’ve tried to avoid projects that are

New trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Mosaic

HBO has released a new trailer for Mosaic, a unique storytelling experience from Steven Soderbergh, which is available now via the free app ahead of a traditional six-hour miniseries airing on the cable network in the New Year. Take a look at the trailer here…

Three years in the making, the Mosaic app allows viewers to choose what point-of-view from which to follow the story and to, in effect, build their own experience from the material Soderbergh and Solomon created. The choices one makes build upon one another, enabling multiple tellings of the story from different perspectives and, sometimes, with different conclusions. Viewers will be able to see how their own versions of the story on the app ultimately compare to Soderbergh’s six-part linear narrative in January.

Mosaic is available via a free app now, with a traditional six-hour episodic version slated to air on HBO in January 2018 and

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut

Winstead in “Fargo”: FX Networks

Hot off the heels of her turn as con artist-with-a-heart-of-gold Nikki Swango on FX’s “Fargo,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead has booked her next role — and it’s in a woman-helmed film. Winstead is set to star in Eva Vives’ feature directorial debut, the semi-autobiographical “All About Nina.” The “Smashed” actress will portray the titular character, a professionally successful but personally dissatisfied stand-up comedian. Deadline broke the story.

“To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common, ‘Selma’),” the source summarizes, “who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.”

“All About Nina’s” supporting cast includes Kate Del Castillo (“Ingobernable”), Clea DuVall (“Veep”), Melonie Diaz (“Fruitvale Station”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest”), Mindy Sterling (“Black-ish”), Angelique Cabral (“Band Aid”), Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex”), Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), and Jay Mohr (“Suburgatory”).

Deadline doesn’t specify, but it’s likely Vives will pen as well as direct the dark comedy, which originated at the 2016 Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Vives will also produce with Diablo Entertainment’s Natalie Qasabian, Eric B. Fleischman, and Sean Tabibian. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Joshua Astrachan are exec producing.

Vives has previously directed the shorts “Me, Myself, & I,” “She Pedals Fast (For a Girl),” and “Join the Club.” She worked as a producer, editor, and casting director on the Sundance and Cannes awarding-winning short “Five Feet High and Rising.”

Winstead was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for playing an alcoholic trying to stay sober in “Smashed.” Her recent credits include “Mercy Street,” “BrainDead,” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” She received a Saturn Award for her work in the latter.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

The Mountain Between Us – Review

From a romance novel by Charles Martin, The Mountain Between Us is old-fashioned Hollywood melodrama, a survival story that touches on themes of love, tragedy, and the kindness of strangers. It’s also old-fashioned dumb, with eye-rolling dialog, a dreary pace, and a general lack of logic leaving the audience, like its characters, to trudge aimlessly across a vast snowy tundra. Guys: This weekend do not let your girlfriends drag you to this instead of Blade Runner 2049!

Kate Winslet and Idris Elba star in The Mountain Between Us as a pair of travelers, strangers to each other, stranded at the Boise, Idaho airport thanks to an impending storm. Alex (Winslet) is a celebrated freelance photographer whose wedding is the next day. Ben (Elba) is a celebrated neurosurgeon scheduled to perform an operation on a ten-year old the next day. It’s like they are the only ones there with good reason to get home!

'The Mountain Between Us' Review: Survivalist Romance Is Less Disaster Movie, More Disaster

'The Mountain Between Us' Review: Survivalist Romance Is Less Disaster Movie, More Disaster
There are films that rely on the screen presence of charismatic leads – and then there's the sort of cinematic slush piles of chick-flick torture porn that no amount of star power can keep from becoming an endurance test. You get one guess which category the high-altitude soap opera The Mountain Between Us falls into. Why Kate Winslet, Idris Elba and skilled Dutch-Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now, Omar) found themselves attracted to the tearjerking twaddle of Charles Martin's bestseller is anyone's guess. But none of them have not found a

‘The Mountain Between Us’ Review: Dir. Hany Abu-Assad (2017)

The Mountain Between Us review: Can British actors Idris Elba and Kate Winslet overcome the threat of nature in this romantic drama?

The Mountain Between Us review by Paul Heath.

Two British screen legends, Kate Winslet and Idris Elba, come together for this drama about two strangers who come together in extreme circumstances in Dutch-Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad’s (Omar, The Idol) The Mountain Between Us.

The Mountain Between Us is adapted from the book of the same name by Charles Martin, and sees Elba’s surgeon Dr. Ben Bass, and Winslet’s photojournalist Alex Martin stranded in the middle of a snowstorm at Salt Lake City airport. Both are on tight schedules, Ben needing to get home to perform a life-saving operation on a waiting patient, and Alex for her own wedding. The two meet at said airport and come up with the idea of chartering a plane together,

The Mountain Between Us review – Kate Winslet and Idris Elba in tall but tame story

There’s plenty of frowning and emoting as a photojournalist and a surgeon fly into trouble in this slightly dull high-altitude drama

There’s a sparky and entertaining opening act to this romance-disaster movie, adapted by Chris Weitz and J Mills Goodloe from the novel by Charles Martin, and directed by Hany Abu-Assad, who gave us the challenging Palestinian movie Paradise Now in 2005. But after the main event, it becomes anticlimactic, even slightly dull, and in the final 10 minutes it fudges an emotional problem.

Kate Winslet plays Alex, a camera-wielding photojournalist whose work has appeared in the Guardian; she is rushing home to get married, but is stuck in an airport where storm warnings have cancelled all flights. So is surgeon Dr Ben Bass (Idris Elba), who needs to go to this same destination to perform an urgent operation. Resourceful, gutsy Alex approaches Ben with an idea: they can together charter a small plane,

The Mountain Between Us” is one of those movies that’s impossible to watch without imagining the elevator pitch that got the project off the ground (yes, it was adapted from a Charles Martin novel of the same name, but someone still had to sell Hollywood on the idea). “It’s ‘The Grey’ meets ‘The English Patient’!” “It’s ‘Alive’ meets ‘Before Sunrise’!” “It’s ‘Cast Away,’ but if Tom Hanks was a little horny for Wilson!” Amusingly billed as a “romance-disaster” on the film’s Wikipedia page, Hany Abu-Assad’s dreary but diverting high-altitude epic is a “will they or won’t they?” flirtation superimposed onto a classic story of survival. It’s fantastically unrealistic stuff from the first minute to the last (and there are far too many minutes between them), but Idris Elba and Kate Winslet generate enough heat to keep the frostbite at bay, and Mandy Walker

Movie Review – The Mountain Between Us (2017)

The Mountain Between Us, 2017.

Directed by Hany Abu-Assad.

Starring Idris Elba, Kate Winslet, Dermot Mulroney, and Beau Bridges.

Synopsis:

Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow-covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across the wilderness.

Survival films are always a tricky execution from a narrative standpoint, as audiences need believable and legitimately understanding reasons as to why the central characters are stranded and in peril. Otherwise, what’s left is two hours of moviegoer checking their watches, languidly dying of boredom while cheering on every death as it means the picture is one step closer to its conclusion. The Mountain Between Us (based on the novel of the same name by Charles Martin) suffers from that tragic fate; it’s not that the two strangers played by Idris Elba

Tiff Review: ‘The Mountain Between Us’ is a Serviceable Survival Story

Kate Winslet and Idris Elba are two formidable actors that exude immaculate on-screen presence. So having both co-star in a film that basically pits them alone for most of the runtime can lead one to assume we’d be in for something special. The Mountain Between Us, adapted from the book by Charles Martin, is not that special movie. The Hollywood debut of Palestinian director Hany Abu-Assad, who made Paradise Now and Omar, turns out to be surprisingly pedantic. Whereas the two aforementioned movies dealt with hefty, substance-driven subject matters, The Mountain Between Us is nothing more than a survival love story set in the far-reaching rocky mountains.

Winslet plays photojournalist Alex and Elba is neurologist Ben. They meet at Salt Lake City airport after their flight is cancelled. Much to their fortune — or lack thereof, it turns out — they meet a pilot (Beau Bridges) that flies them in his private chartered plane.
