Tribeca Review: ‘The Trip to Spain’ is a Wholehearted, Hilarious Excursion

6 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Averting the bigger is better approach that plagues most franchises, The Trip series is attuned to life’s simple pleasures: cuisine, comedy, and companionship. For Michael Winterbottom, Steve Coogan, and Rob Brydon, their third outing, The Trip to Spain, refreshingly doesn’t stray from the charismatic formula that has resulted in perhaps the most delightful series of films this decade.

Sparing little narrative formalities, as has become part and parcel for these expeditions, Coogan, having concluded a series with Martin Scorsese, and Brydon, eager to take a break from child-rearing duties, set off on another assignment, this time heading to the southwest of Europe. Coogan takes on a Cervantes-inspired “Don Quixote”-esque journey as he reads Laurie Lee’s “As I Walked Out One Midsummer Morning” and attempts to write his own book about his voyage, while Brydon is once again filing restaurant reviews. Aside from the expected, but still as-hilarious-as-ever host of impressions, »

Exclusive: Brad Paisley Fights for Better Treatment of Us Veterans on New Song - 'We Have to Make This Right'

20 April 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Brad Paisley is tipping his cowboy hat to our U.S. veterans.

Only Et was with the country star in San Diego last week, where he filmed his latest music video aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and alongside the iconic Unconditional Surrender kissing statue. The song, "Love and War," serves as the title track for Paisley's 11th studio album (out Friday) and delivers a pointed message regarding the treatment of vets right here at home with the chorus: "They say all is fair in love and war, but that ain't true, it's wrong. They send you off to die for us, forget about you when you don't."

"I think the message is, really, we can do better," Paisley says. "We can do a lot better when it comes to taking care of veterans. I don't think there's anyone who would disagree with that. There's a line in the song which is one of my favorite lines, 'We »

Isa of the Day: Shoreline Becomes Latin American Talent & Literary Manager

19 April 2017 10:53 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

Isa of the day is a continuing series of profiles of very special international sales agents. Shoreline Entertainment, one of the longest running independent film production companies and international sales agencies, has expanded its management arm to foster Latin American and women driven projects. You can see its Cannes lineup here.

The company was founded in 1992 by CEO and film producer Morris Ruskin whose production “Glengarry Glen Ross” launched him into the top level of indie producers. Shoreline’s Latin American Division for Management and Production is meeting with great success in repping over 25 directors, writers, actors, DPs and more.

Two interviews here, one with Alex Flores, the head of the division and the other with Diana Elizabeth Torres, a California based actress and writer illuminate their strategy and mission.

Tribeca 2017 Preview: Arranged Marriages, Endangered Animals, the Justice System, & More

17 April 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

A Suitable Girl

Women directed nearly 40 percent of the films screening in Competition at this year’s edition of the Tribeca Film Festival, and there are plenty of women-centric projects in the fest’s lineup. Whether you’re most interested in features or documentaries, stories about friendship or feminist awakenings, we’ve got you covered. We’ve assembled some of the most promising-sounding films in the program, but this is by no means an exhaustive list of projects by and about women at the fest— just some of the highlights.

Besides the features listed below, other noteworthy titles include Jessica Devaney’s short “Love the Sinner,” a doc about her growing up Evangelical and how the Pulse shooting affected her, and Zohar Kfir’s “Testimony,” a Vr doc centered on sexual assault survivors. You can also check out “Out of this World: Female Filmmakers in Genre,” a special screening of three genre shorts helmed by women, and interview events with Barbra Streisand as well as Lena Dunham and frequent collaborator Jenni Konner.

Tribeca runs from April 19–30. Plot synopses below are courtesy of Tribeca.

“The Divine Order” — Written and Directed by Petra Volpe

What it’s about: Political leaders in Switzerland cited “Divine Order” as the reason why women still did not have the right to vote as late as 1970. Director Petra Volpe explores this surprising history through the story of Nora, a quiet housewife from a quaint village searching for the fierce suffragette leader inside her. With Marie Leuenberger, Max Simonischek, Rachel Braunschweig, Sibylle Brunner, Marta Zoffoli, Bettina Sucky.

Why we’re interested: Women have had the right to vote in the U.S. for less than 100 years, and sadly there are women around the world that still can’t cast ballots. It’s easy to slough off women’s fight for the vote as a thing of the past, but “Divine Order” stresses that this chapter in history remains largely unwritten. “This got swept under the rug and was not talked about much in history lessons,” Volpe explained in an as-yet-unpublished interview with Women and Hollywood. “That is so typical for women’s history — it’s untold. I made this movie because I wanted to honor all the women who fought for so long and so hard.”

Manifesto

Manifesto

What it’s about: All current art is fake. Nothing is original. These are some of the statements exposed in artist Julian Rosefeldt’s film. Starring Cate Blanchett, we witness a series of vignettes which draw upon artist manifestos that question the true nature of art. A chameleonic Blanchett gives a tour-de-force performance as she transforms in each segment like never before

Why we’re interested: Frankly, this description of “Manifesto” makes the film sound more than a little pretentious. But we simply can’t and won’t turn down the opportunity to see Cate Blanchett take on 13 characters. When you watch a film starring the inimitable actress, you’re guaranteed a standout performance. So with “Manifesto,” we can expect 13 standout performances. The unconventional project — which originated as a multi-screen film installation — sees the two-time Oscar winner playing characters as varied as a factory worker, puppeteer, and scientist.

For Ahkeem” (Documentary)

What it’s about: “For Ahkeem” is the moving portrait of 17-year-old Daje Shelton, a Black girl in North St. Louis, as she navigates the many challenges of growing up in inner city America with one goal: to graduate high school.

Why we’re interested: Most films depict larger-than-life characters with experiences that are pure fantasy for the viewer. So it’s a welcome change to see a down-to-earth movie featuring a relatable protagonist with a relatable goal. Daje wants what we all want: a good life. Featuring subtle commentary on the U.S. education system, “For Ahkeem” shows how unnecessarily difficult it is for young people like Daje to earn a high school diploma, something that should be a fundamental right for everyone.

The Circle

The Circle

What it’s about: When Mae (Emma Watson) is hired to work for the world’s largest and most powerful tech and social media company, she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company’s founder, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics, and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family, and that of humanity

Why we’re interested: “Beauty and the Beast” has officially grossed more than a billion dollars at the box office, and “The Circle” marks “Harry Potter” alumna Emma Watson’s follow-up to the Disney smash sensation. It appears as though Watson is playing another heroine, and this time around, she’s taking on a god of the tech industry. “The Circle” promises to tackle timely questions and concerns about privacy laws and online identity, and will be a nice change of pace from Watson’s delightful turn as Belle.

One Percent More Humid” — Written and Directed by Liz W. Garcia

What it’s about: Catherine (Julia Garner) and Iris (Juno Temple) are childhood friends home from college for a hot New England summer. As they attempt to enjoy parties and skinny-dipping and the usual vacation hijinks, a shared trauma in their past becomes increasingly difficult to suppress. As the wedge between the friends grows, they each pursue forbidden affairs to cope. With Alessandro Nivola, Maggie Siff, Philip Ettinger, Mamoudou Athie.

Why we’re interested: “This is a film about grief. Sorry! There are some laughs, too, and it’s sexy, I promise. But essentially, this is a movie about the effect of grief on the friendship of two young women,” writer-director Garcia told us in a soon-to-be-published interview. We love narratives about female friendship, and Garcia explained that the plot of “One Percent More Humid” is “an amalgam of true stories about young people and fatal car accidents.” Stories about grief are typically centered around middle-aged parents who have lost children, so it will be interesting to see two young women grappling with the aftermath of a tragedy.

Keep the Change” — Written and Directed by Rachel Israel

Keep the Change

What it’s about: In a support group for adults living with autism, David — a smooth talker struggling to hide his disability — meets a woman with similar learning challenges, and they quickly forge an intimate bond. Starring a cast of nonprofessional actors on the autism spectrum, “Keep the Change” details an underrepresented community with authenticity, optimism, and humor. With Brandon Polansky, Samantha Elisofon, Nicky Gottlieb, Will Deaver, Jessica Walter, Tibor Feldman.

Why we’re interested: Hollywood usually ignores people with disabilities, and when they are depicted, they’re often reduced to single-note characters. That’s why we’re happy that “Keep the Change” — like Alexandra Shiva’s “How to Dance in Ohio” — depicts the inner lives of those on the autism spectrum with actors who are actually on the spectrum. Instead of presenting David as if he is the subject of a public service announcement, Israel shows him as just another person looking for love.

“I Am Evidence” (Documentary) — Directed by Trish Adlesic and Geeta Gandbhir

“I Am Evidence”

What it’s about: Every year in cities around the United States, it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of rape kits are left untested in police storage facilities. Produced by Mariska Hargitay, “I Am Evidence” exposes this shocking reality, bringing attention to the way in which police have historically processed sexual assault cases. Through an exploration of survivors’ accounts, the film sheds light on these disturbing statistics, and shows what can be achieved when evidence — and the individuals it represents — are treated with the respect we all deserve. An HBO Documentary Film release.

Why we’re interested: Adlesic and Gandbhir told Women and Hollywood they were drawn to tell this story because of “the outrage [they] felt” when they learned “it’s estimated that there are 400,000 untested rape kits in the Unites States.” Hopefully that outrage is contagious. If you aren’t horrified and disgusted by how the justice system treats rape survivors, “I Am Evidence” will likely make you reconsider your stance. The filmmakers hope that audiences leaving the theater “have a better understanding of the survivor experience” and “ask their legislators to pass laws that require the testing of all rape kits in a timely manner and to follow up on the findings of those tested kits.”

Copwatch” (Documentary) — Directed by Camilla Hall

Copwatch

What it’s about: “Copwatch” is the true story of We Copwatch, an organization that films police activity as a non-violent form of protest and deterrent to police brutality. In her feature film debut, director Camilla Hall crafts an intriguing and timely profile of citizen-journalist-activists — including Ramsey Orta, who filmed Eric Garner’s fatal arrest — who seek to disrupt the ever-present challenge of police violence.

Why we’re interested: If the Kendall Jenner Pepsi ad taught us anything, it’s that much of the public is still shockingly ignorant about movements like We Copwatch and Black Lives Matter. “Copwatch” strives to show that being anti-police brutality is not the same as being anti-police. Like her subjects, Hall uses her camera to spotlight racially-charged violence and hold those responsible accountable. At a time when amateur videos expose the unfounded violence racial prejudice can provoke — from traffic stops to United Airlines — this doc is more relevant than ever.

“Wasted! The Story of Food Waste” (Documentary) — Directed by Anna Chai and Nari Kye

“Wasted! The Story of Food Waste”

What it’s about: Each year, $218 billion — or 1.3 billion tons — of food is thrown out. With nearly a billion people worldwide facing starvation, food conservation is a more urgent issue than ever before. Executive produced by Anthony Bourdain, Chai and Kye’s fast-paced and forward-thinking food doc takes viewers on a tour of inventive new ideas for recycling waste and maximizing sustainability from innovative chefs like Massimo Bottura, Dan Barber, and Danny Bowien, who turn scraps into feasts before our eyes.

Why we’re interested: “One of the perks of working with Anthony Bourdain and on shows like ‘The Mind of a Chef’ is that you come in contact with a lot of chefs. Being in their worlds, their restaurants, and their kitchens, we see close-up what makes these people tick and also what boils their blood,” Chai and Kye told us in an upcoming interview. “Time and again, food waste was something that chefs railed against. It’s bad business. It shows laziness, a lack of creativity, and worst of all, disrespects the time, money, labor, and craft needed to grow the ingredients.” Most people would be appalled if they realized the sheer amount of food that gets thrown out daily, yet this subject is rarely broached in the mainstream media. “Wasted!” will explore why this is a problem we all need to be thinking about, talking about, and working to solve.

A Suitable Girl” (Documentary) — Directed by Smriti Mundhra and Sarita Khurana

What it’s about: Dipti, Amrita, Ritu, and Seema are all young, modern women in India looking to get married — some desperately, some reluctantly. “A Suitable Girl” follows them over the course of four years as they juggle family, career, and friends, intimately capturing their thoughts on arranged marriage, giving them a voice, and offering a unique perspective into the nuances of this institution.

Why we’re interested: There is a western assumption that arranged marriages are inherently backwards and inferior to matches based on Disney-esque “true love.” But most people who accept this notion haven’t considered, or consulted, those who are actually in arranged marriages. “A Suitable Girl” moves past perception by directly engaging with the brides-to-be. Mundhra and Khurana listen to the young women without judgment or pre-existing expectations. And they discover that arranged marriages are based on many factors: timing, money, class, familial obligations, the couple, etc. Just like all unions.

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” (Documentary) — Directed by Alexandra Dean

What it’s about: Known for her unmatched beauty, Hedy Lamarr’s fans never knew she also possessed a beautiful mind. Immigrating to Hollywood in the late 1930s, Lamarr acted by day and sketched inventions by night, even devising a “secret communication system” for the Allies to beat the Nazis. “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” reveals how Lamarr gave her patent away to the Navy, receiving no credit for her engineering innovations, even as she was immortalized as a legend of the silver screen.

Why we’re interested: Society loves to force women into boxes, and “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” shows just how unfair and ill-advised this tendency is. While Lamarr has been immortalized for her appearance, the actress’s brilliant inventions haven’t received their fair due. “Who wouldn’t want to make a story about Hedy?! She was a wild child. Some claimed she was a spy. She was a movie star and later a drug addict and a recluse. Her life was crazy enough before we discovered she came up with a technology we use in our digital devices every day,” Dean told us in an upcoming interview. “I spent years profiling inventors and innovators for Bloomberg Television and Businessweek but I never heard a life story that came close to Hedy’s story. I suppose it also particularly resonated for me because, as a short, quiet woman who always wanted to be a director, I know a little about what its like to want to do something that no one expects you to do.”

“The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson” (Documentary)

“The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson”

What it’s about: Featuring never-before-seen footage and rediscovered interviews, Academy Award nominee David France (“How to Survive a Plague”) follows a new investigation into the mysterious death of self-described “street queen” Marsha P. Johnson, one of the courageous black transgender activists who spearheaded the modern gay civil rights movement.

Why we’re interested: Accurate representations of trans characters and real-life trans people are severely lacking. Narratives like “3 Generations” and “The Danish Girl” caused controversy by casting cis actors to portray trans characters. Others like “Stonewall” minimize or outright ignore the role trans activists played in the fight for Lgbtq rights. “The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson” is essential because it tells a trans person’s story through her own perspective — a strategy the rest of Hollywood should emulate.

Dare to be Different” (Documentary) — Directed by Ellen Goldfarb

What it’s about: Featuring interviews and rare footage of U2, Blondie, Duran Duran, Joan Jett, The Cure, Billy Idol, and Depeche Mode, “Dare to Be Different” is a nostalgic look at Wlir 92.7, the radio station that introduced these bands to a U.S. audience. Director Ellen Goldfarb tells the story of the rise and fall of this institution, and the birth of the punk and new wave communities.

Why we’re interested: There are about a hundred existing documentaries about The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan. No disrespect — they are legends for a reason — but we’re excited that Goldfarb is documenting the rise of music that’s not strictly from the ’60s and ’70s. Female artists like Blondie and Joan Jett have been especially overlooked in music history, so we’re psyched to find out more about these influential voices and how they have resonated with fans.

The Last Animals” (Documentary) — Directed by Kate Brooks

The Last Animals

What it’s about: Photojournalist Kate Brooks turns her lens from war zones to a new kind of genocide in this sweeping and sobering film. As the single-digit population of the Northern White Rhino ticks closer to extinction, Brooks exposes the epidemic of highly effective poachers and trafficking syndicates, and the heroic efforts of conservationists, park rangers, and scientists to protect these majestic creatures

Why we’re interested: “In 2010, I went to Kenya on a long planned vacation after embedding with a medevac unit at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan. It was in the Maasai Mara that I was able to heal from some of the inhumanity I had witnessed,” Brooks recalled to Women and Hollywood in a soon-to-be-published interview. “Upon seeing a herd of wild elephants for the first time, I was reminded in an instant that in spite of all the human destruction on the planet, there was still some natural order. That experience ultimately led me to want to help them.” Brooks’ mission to help endangered elephants and rhinos evolved into an epic journey. “Production spanned four continents and the film is in five languages,” she explained. Since animals can’t speak for themselves, docs like “The Last Animals” are crucial in educating the public about how our behavior affects different species — and why it matters. Plus, Brooks is a photojournalist, so we’re betting the wildlife footage from “The Last Animals” is visually stunning.

Harry Styles Debuts Second Single 'Ever Since New York' on 'Saturday Night Live,' Shows Off Comedy Skills

16 April 2017 12:40 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Harry Styles shined on Saturday Night Live over the weekend with two great musical performances and some of the night's funniest cameos.

Decked out in a plaid suit, Styles owned the stage, singing as a solo artist for the first time without his former One Direction bandmates with a powerful performance of his debut solo single, "Sign of the Times."

Styles returned for a second performance later in the evening where he premiered another new tune – which should be exciting news to fans who have been racking up repeats of "Sign of the Times" over the last few weeks.

The singer's second single, "Ever Since New York," is a slower, lovelorn ballad that will no doubt spark speculation over who it could have been written about, but is still a solid example of his vocal talent and versatility.

Ghosts of Futures Predicted: How Hollywood Imagined We’d Be Living Now

30 March 2017 3:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Cai Ross

Earth’s future has always proved a playground of possibility for scriptwriters and directors. Artists are rarely content to make do within the confines of what is merely possible. Setting a movie years in the future is a way of letting their minds off the leash, while usually offering an allegorical reflection of the times in which we currently live. As one fictional time-travel expert once said, “The future is not set. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves.”

Snow White & The Huntsman director Rupert Sanders is the latest in a long line of visual soothsayers who has made his own fate in the form of Ghost In The Shell, which offers us a metropolitan futureworld full of gymnastic augmented cybernetic agents, colossal 3D advertisements and the increasingly regular sight of Juliette Binoche in a lab-coat.

CinemaCon: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ Pleases Exhibitors

29 March 2017 12:08 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Amid a myriad of slot machines at Caesars Palace, Disney’s showing of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” on Tuesday left exhibitors in an upbeat mood for representing close to a sure thing.

“That’s the movie people have been waiting for,” said one. “I loved the special effects and the story felt fresh.”

Disney’s presentation of the screening came at the end of the second day of CinemaCon, and started 30 minutes late as Paramount’s earlier presentation ran longer than scheduled. Disney’s distribution chief Dave Hollis first gave a short recap of the studio’s record year of $7.6 billion worldwide, noted that “Beauty and the Beast” had eclipsed $700 million and offered a relatively brief update of the upcoming slate.

No stars took the stage and Hollis did not engage in the typical CinemaCon hyperbole, though he did point out mater-of-factly that the four »

Roll Over, Chuck Berry! Rip...

21 March 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

When I was seven-years old I had a Kool-Aid stand and with my profits bought my very first album -- The Beatles' Second Album. I remember walking the several blocks to the Acme store and praying that they still had a copy in the album rack. They did. I couldn't wait to get home and play it on my portable record player. I carefully placed the needle on the very first track on side one of that magnificent album and... my life would forever be devoted to music in some shape or form. On that beloved album, the very first track was my favorite song -- "Roll Over Beethoven" -- by one Mr. Chuck Berry. At the time, I had no idea who wrote the song nor much cared. It was all about The Beatles. But as almost everyone knows, Chuck Berry wrote and recorded it years earlier. And »

Music Legend Chuck Berry Died of Natural Causes

A comprehensive look into the career and life from one of our greatest directors, there’s everything from personal exchanges between Terrence Malick and the director to countless storyboards to rare behind-the-scenes photos to a map of the city with corresponding clips from his films.
