[Tiff Review] Una

11 September 2016 10:40 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

“It’s a long story.” So says Una, a young woman with a going-nowhere office job and an emotionally devastated past, when asked about her relationship with Peter — the man she knew as Ray. Indeed it is a long story — a morally complex and cruelly realistic one, too. The debut feature from theater veteran Benedict Andrews, Una is an astonishing success. Anchored by two exhilarating performances from Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn, the film is also harsh, moving, and extraordinarily riveting, one of the more unsettling works to play the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and undoubtedly among the most provocative.

Una is based on David Harrower’s play Blackbird, an acclaimed drama that has starred such acting heavyweights as Jeff Daniels and Michelle Williams. Yet the roles of Una and Peter / Ray now seem owned by Mara and Mendelsohn. The storyline — a woman in her twenties confronts the man who »

Sam Waterston Joins The Cast Of Soderbergh’s Godless On Netflix

6 September 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He may have announced his retirement – albeit a temporary one – from filmmaking, but Academy Award winner Steven Soderbergh has not been resting on his laurels. Having delivered the critically acclaimed TV movie Behind The Candelabra, and the equally well-received TV series The Knick, The Girlfriend Experience, and Red Oaks, Soderbergh has turned his attentions to Netflix, where he will stream his latest producing project, Godless.

Godless is a limited series of just six episodes, and is written and directed by Scott Frank (The Wolverine, A Walk Among The Tombstones). Boasting Soderbergh and Casey Silver as executive producers, alongside Frank, the story is set against the backdrop of the U.S western frontier. It stars Jeff Daniels as outlaw Frank Griffin, who is relentlessly hunting his former partner-in-crime, Roy Goode (Jack O’Connell). Goode is hiding out at the ranch of Alice Fletcher (Michelle Dockery), and Griffin’s pursuit of Goode »

Telluride Film Review: ‘Una’

3 September 2016 12:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“How did they ever make a film of ‘Lolita’?” reads the tagline beside that famous red lollipop. The answer: They didn’t. Back in 1962, the subject of pedophilia was far too controversial for Hollywood, as industry censors insisted that no one depict “any inference of sex perversion,” nor the “deliberate seduction of girls” on-screen, leaving Stanley Kubrick and his team to dance around a love that dared not speak its name. More than half a century later, David Harrower’s 2005 play “Blackbird” pulls no punches in engaging with the same subject, while the film adaptation — called “Una,” after its lead character, a young woman determined to rekindle things with the pervy next-door neighbor who seduced her 15 years earlier — pushes the envelope even farther.

Needless to say, “Una” is not an easy film to watch, in part because it deals with not just the act of pedophilia (never depicted outright) but also its consequences, »

‘Una’ Telluride Review: Rooney Mara Molestation Drama Undercuts Its Own Impact

2 September 2016 11:15 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Australian theater director Benedict Andrews makes his film debut with “Una,” an uneasy adaptation of David Harrower’s play “Blackbird,” about a young woman who had a sexual relationship at age 12 with a 40-year-old man who went to prison for four years for his crime. Harrower’s play dramatizes the disturbing way these two people were originally drawn together and the aspects of their sick bond that they cannot let go of. “Blackbird” was most notably done on Broadway earlier in 2016 with Jeff Daniels and Michelle Williams, and both Daniels and Williams are histrionic virtuosos when it comes to this. »

One thing’s for sure: A win in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series category for either The Americans‘ Matthew Rhys or Mr. Robot‘s Rami Malek — both first-time nominees — would not be considered an upset.

In fact, with Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm and The Newsroom‘s Jeff Daniels out of the running, this particular Emmy race is wide open.

Downton Abbey: Michelle Dockery on a possible film

15 August 2016 10:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kayti Burt Aug 16, 2016

Michelle Dockery seems to think there is a possibility we will get to see the Crawleys on screen again, in a Downton Abbey movie...

Downton Abbey was a ratings powerhouse on both sides of the Atlantic and — if we've learned anything about ratings powerhouses in this age of remakes and reboots — it's that they hardly ever die.

Is there a chance that the popular period drama about the Crawley family and their extensive community of servants could make it back to the screen — this time, the big screen? According to Michelle Dockery (aka Lady Mary), yes... 

"I think there is potential for a film," Dockery told The Telegraph during an interview that mainly centered on other upcoming projects. "That is something I would wholeheartedly consider, so we will see. It may not be over yet." It sounds like there is some interest in a potential Downton Abbey »

The Divergent TV movie will be bigger than we first thought

7 August 2016 11:21 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

After the rather lacklustre performance of the last movie in the Divergent series, The Divergent Series: Allegiant, which was released earlier this year, Lionsgate stated that the next, and indeed final instalment in the young adult series would actually head to the small screen. Well, that is still the plan, but it seems that the project will be slightly bigger than we first thought.

According to Deadline, the Divergent TV movie will actually be a series. Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Begg told the trade blog that the the plan will be “resolving the [final] novel in a season across 10 to 13 episodes and then expanding from there into multiple seasons.”

So, yes, rather than it being a stand-alone TV movie, we’ll be getting potentially a 13-hour TV series that may be developed into further series’ past the source novels. This is actually quite big news.

Divergent: Lionsgate gives fresh details on fate of Ascendant

5 August 2016 11:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kayti Burt Aug 8, 2016

Lionsgate has revealed details at last as to how it plans to round off the Divergent series...

Speaking at the TCA summer press tour, Lionsgate finally gave some more details about its plans for its Divergent TV movie — which actually sounds a lot more like a TV show than a TV movie.

According to Deadline, Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs said the media company is looking at "resolving the novel in a season across 10 to 13 episodes and then expanding from there into multiple seasons." This sounds like, rather than a TV movie with a subsequent television show spinoff, the second half of the final novel will be told in a TV show that will potentially continue on past the ending of the book.

This is particularly interesting within the context of the story given that those who have read the ending of the series know that »

‘Stranger Things’ Featurette: Winona Ryder On Her Harrowing, Emotional Performance In Her First Major TV Role

26 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Netflix’s new original series sci-fi horror series “Stranger Things,” about the disappearance of a young boy and the arrival of a telekinetic girl in a small town in 1980’s Indiana, has garnered critical acclaim for its performances and the numerous homages to 1980’s cinema. Written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffers, colloquially known as The Duffers, the series features actress Winona Ryder in a prominent role as Joyce Byers, a high-strung single mother whose son Will is the boy who goes missing. While the town is out looking for her son, she believes she’s talking to him through the lights in her house and is convinced that her son is alive and in danger. It’s an emotional, harrowing performance, especially for Ryder’s first major TV role. Watch a featurette below with Ryder, The Duffers, executive producer Shawn Levy, and fellow actor David Harbour discuss Ryder’s fearless performance. »

How ‘BoJack Horseman’ Achieved Perfection Without a Word

26 July 2016 9:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episode 4.]

“You’ll find me in a sea of dreams where no one cares about my words.”

That Raphael Bob-Waksberg would make a largely silent episode of “BoJack Horseman” is as surprising as it is fitting, but the diegetic reason the episode features little dialogue (and none underwater) takes a well-executed punchline and turns it into transcendent TV. Revealed in the final seconds of “A Fish Out of Water,” we learn BoJack could have been speaking the entire time had he not been ignorant of how to use his underwater oxygen bubble. When he finally pushes his communication button and realizes the gaffe, BoJack lets out a frustrated “Oh, you have got to be kidd–” that’s cut off by the credits. While funny as a kicker to an episode building to a crescendo of mistakes, the choice also speaks to our antihero’s larger mental state and why he so »

’Stranger Things’ Season 2: 9 Questions We’re Dying To Have Answered

One of the joys of Netflix’s original series “Stranger Things” is the season’s sense of finality. The Duffer brothers excelled at crescendoing the season with action, emotion and heft, yet they left what they’ve referred to as “dangling threads” around the conclusions of Will Byers and Eleven, and we wanted to get in on speculating what Season 2 may answer and where the show could venture to. If you’ve finished the season, read on to find out what we’re asking about Season 2. If you haven’t checked out Season 1 yet, Do That and stop reading here!
