Win Passes To The Advance Screening of Effie Gray In St. Louis

18 hours ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In her original screenplay Effie Gray, Emma Thompson takes a bold look at the real life story of the Effie Gray-John Ruskin marriage, while courageously exposing what was truly hiding behind the veil of their public life. Set in a time when neither divorce, nor gay marriage were an option, Effie Gray is the story of a young woman coming of age, finding her own voice in a world where women were expected to be seen but not heard. Effie Gray explores the roots of sexual intolerance, which continue to have a stronghold today, while shedding light on the marital politics of the Victorian Era.

Directed by Richard Laxton, the film stars Emma Thompson, Dakota Fanning, Julie Walters, Tom Sturridge, David Suchet, Greg Wise, Claudia Cardinale, Robbie Coltrane, James Fox, Riccardo Scamarico, and Derek Jacobi.

Effie Gray opens in St. Louis at AMC Creve Coeur 12, Friday, April 3rd. »

'The Lesson' wins four in Sofia

16 March 2015 2:35 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Lesson by co-directors Kristina Grozeva and Petar Valchanov was the big winner at this year’s Sofia International Film Festival in Bulgaria.

The duo’s feature debut became the second Bulgarian feature in Siff’s 19-year history to receive the international jury’s Grand Prix after Dragomir Sholev’s Shelter  in 2011.

The Lesson also picked up the Audience Award, the Fipresci International Critics’ Prize and the award for the Best Bulgarian Feature Film.

Accepting the award, Valchanov pointed to the importance of the Sofia Meetings where The Lesson had originally been pitched and said that this event should be ¨an example¨ to the Bulgarian state to develop a long-term and sustainable film policy for the future.

The sentiment was echoed by international jury president Stephan Komanderev (The Judgement) when he presented the ¨Sofia City Of Film¨ Grand Prix to the young directors.

The Lesson, which is handled internationally by Wide Management, premiered last year »

The Skin | Blu-ray Review

13 January 2015 10:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The past year has been a great one as concerns the availability and restoration of several titles from Italian auteur Liliana Cavani, a director who came to fame and notoriety alongside peers such as Pasolini, Bellocchio, and Bertolucci. Her work has often faced difficulty in achieving the same sort of international acclaim as those male colleagues, each of them certified as a particular brand within the cinematic canon. And yet, Cavani is as equally provocative and prolific, with boundary pushing titles languishing in obscurity, usually historical reconstructions with gender or sexuality as a unique entry. Her work has often been described as having a feminist bent, but Cavani isn’t aspiring to create female agency in spaces dominated by masculinity. Rather, her concern resides in honest depictions of women ravaged by male dominated systems. Cavani’s most notorious title, 1974’s The Night Porter, received a Blu-ray transfer from Criterion recently, »
