'The Good Wife' Creators on Alicia's Political Quandary, Romantic "Spark" and Season 6

19 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Will Alicia Florrick run for state's attorney? The Good Wife picks up right where the season-five finale left off, with Eli Gold proposing to Alicia that she run for political office — a trajectory she had not previously considered. Alicia's possible move comes at a crucial time for Florrick/Agos, as a potential merger with former Lockhart/Gardner colleague, Diane Lockhart, continues to progress at the behest of Cary Agos, who embarks on his own unique journey. That's not to say the lingering effects of Will's death won't be felt throughout the new season. (In fact, Josh Charles returns to direct

Good Wife Bosses Won't Keep Killing People, Tease Alicia's Big Decision in Season 6

18 September 2014 5:35 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Fans of The Good Wife can officially breathe easy. Ever since the acclaimed CBS drama killed off its male lead, Will Gardner (Josh Charles), six months ago in a shocking twist absolutely no one saw coming, the show's loyal following — aka #TheGoodWifeSupportGroup — have had to sleep with one eye open, fearful that in this post-Will Gardner world, nothing and no one is safe.

Julianna Margulies & Jimmy Fallon Play School Principals on Tonight Show (Video)

17 September 2014 5:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Julianna Margulies dropped in on The Tonight Show Tuesday to see Jimmy Fallon, and the star of The Good Wife took a bit of a left turn from her usual role as a litigator to portray a school vice-principal in a skit with Fallon. But the skit's a little more Glee than Boston Public: The pair sing their way through an assortment of awkwardly-rendered pop songs, and even fit in a dance segment at the end. (It's more than a little reminiscent of Will Ferrell and Ana Gasteyer's "Culp Family" during the late-1990s run of Saturday Night Live. »

Can TV Shows Survive After Losing a Main Character?

16 September 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

View Photo Gallery

Shocking an audience is a difficult thing to do these days, so constantly titillated are our imaginations. But with so many series reinventing the traditional format, losing a main character is often a surefire way to leave audiences with mouths agape. Most recently, The Good Wife saw leading character Will Gardner (Josh Charles) die, and Homeland lost one of its main driving forces, maybe-terrorist Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis). While these unexpected character deaths rattled audiences, it’s yet to be seen how their respective shows will carry on without them.

In anticipation of the return of fall TV, we’re taking a look back at iconic shows that lost a main character and soldiered on (for better or for worse). Whether an unexpected death, like Ned Stark on Game of Thrones, or an actor simply leaving a show before it was over, like Steve Carell leaving The Office, »

Pascale Ferran's Metamorphic Reversal: "Bird People" and Ovid's "Metamorphoses"

15 September 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Some eight fifteenths of the way through Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the epic poem relates the tale of an unnamed boy who was turned into a partridge. Flung from Minerva’s high temple by his jealous uncle Daedalus, the nascent inventor free falls into his new form as the Goddess intervenes, spinning his arms into wings. In observance of his near-death experience, Perdix the partridge, as he is identified in a recent translation, “declines the lofty trees, and thinks it best/To brood in hedge-rows o’er its humble nest.” (Pear trees, you’ll note, are conveniently low to the ground.)

Folded into twenty-eight lines of dactylic hexameter, Perdix’s snapshot of a story speaks to primordial self-absorption and condemnation as much as it does the whimsy of divine intervention. One could easily argue that 2006 years later, these two stanzas have been cracked open and scrambled into Pascale Ferran’s Bird People, »

‘Good Wife's’ Josh Charles on New Movie ‘Bird People,’ Robin Williams and Directing Aspirations (Video)

10 September 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The Good Wife” alum Josh Charles stopped by TheWrap's “Drinking With the Stars” set at the Toronto International Film Festival presented by SodaStream to promote his new movie “Bird People.” While Charles is from Baltimore, the film isn't about the Ravens or the Orioles. Instead, Pascale Ferran's latest film is about, as Charles describes it, “how we interact with one another — the sense of loneliness and isolation a lot of people feel. The more literally connected we are the more emotionally disconnected we become. It deals in those themes,” though he later admitted that it's not the type of. »

Review: Pascale Ferran's 'Bird People' Starring Josh Charles, Anais Demoustier And Radha Mitchell

8 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At some point or another, every major international filmmaker gets the itch to broaden their audience and work with big (or biggish) names for a film that, at least in part, is in the English language. The latest director to experiment away from their native tongue is Pascal Ferran, who made a splash eight years ago with her three-hour French adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley." "Bird People," which is in large part in English, and features a number of recognizable faces, including Josh Charles, Radha Mitchell and "The Wire" actor (and director) Clark Johnson, has its vocal champions here in Cannes, but we were legitimately puzzled by the film, which combines a drab, enervating English-language first half with a better, but still not entirely successful, second that marks a major departure from what's come before. After a brief prologue in which Ferran delves into the thoughts of passengers on a train, »

Tweets and FaceTimes: Pascale Ferran Returns with Uneven But Adventurous Realist-Fantasy

There are a number of films scattered throughout that are intent on depicting how our world communicates and operates today, viz. through web-mediated interfaces. But none of them approached this reality, however glancingly, in such an exuberantly abstract register as did Pascale Ferran in her bonkers, wholly original, yet painfully uneven new film, Bird People. It’s her first project since the now eight year-old Lady Chatterley (2006), and one can imagine that at least half of that hiatus was spent working on the film’s CGI effects alone, which are some of the most subtle but meticulous to be employed in any film yet in existence. The only problem is that so much narrative playfulness and structural innovation gets seriously bogged down by Ferran’s awkward direction and a script filled with lame dialogue — perhaps attributable to English being her second language. »

‘Bird People’ Review: Learning To Fly, But It Ain’t Got Wings

5 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Bird People is a series of misconnections. After a blissful prologue paying homage to Wings of Desire, Pascale Ferran’s fourth feature listlessly morphs into a bizarre confluence of realism and magicalism. The film is a textbook example of ambition undercut by tonal and pacing inconsistency. Divided into two chapters, Bird People leads with Gary (Josh Charles), a Bay Area businessman ready to “leave everything behind,” as he proclaims. Ridden with anxiety, Gary knows he needs to leave his position at his growing Tech Company, his wife (after 18 years of courtship), his kids, and his current way of life. From one airport hotel to the next, he seems unable to experience joy or happiness. This heightened mid-life crisis serves as a jarring juxtaposition between Audrey (Anais Demoustier), a Parisian chambermaid and college student whose future is still ahead of her. She too is dissatisfied with her place of work, a Hilton Hotel where Gary is hiding out »

“I want this to be a day to encourage dog ownership of all breeds, mixed and pure – to help abolish puppy mills and end breed specific legislation so we can create a world where all dogs (and every animal) can live a happy, save and ‘abuse-free life,’” Paige states on the National Dog Day official website.

2014 Emmy Award Winners Dominated by 'Breaking Bad'

26 August 2014 7:33 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Last night the 2014 Emmy Award winners were announced with "Breaking Bad" taking home top honors with five wings including Outstanding Drama Series, followed by "Modern Family" with three wins including Outstanding Comedy Series. FX programs "American Horror Story: Coven" and "Fargo" each took home two awards including an Outstanding Miniseries win for "Fargo". Meanwhile, new shows such as "Orange is the New Black" and "Silicon Valley" went home empty handed and for all the fanfare it received in its first season, including 12 Emmy nominations, "True Detective" only took home one win, that being for director Cary Joji Fukunaga". Personally, I don't give a lick about the Emmys, it's right there with the Grammys in terms of worthless awards shows for me. It's a show wherein people must nominate themselves and while most award shows are no better, this one is down there near the bottom for me. So, with that said, »
