‘The Little Foxes’ Broadway Review: Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon Mix Up the Greed and Innocence

19 April 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It takes real guts for two actors to alternate roles during the run of a play. Who needs such direct comparisons? Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud famously switched, playing the Bard’s Romeo and Mercutio in a 1935 U.K. production. Now on Broadway, Laura Linney and Cynthia Nixon alternate playing Regina and Birdie in a revival of Lillian Hellman’s “The Little Foxes,” which opened Thursday at Mtc’s Samuel  J. Friedman Theatre. On opening night, Linney played Regina and Nixon played Birdie, and they are excellent in those respective roles. Less wonderful is Nixon’s Regina and Linney’s Birdie. »

‘Sully: Miracle on the Hudson’ Review

19 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Tom HanksAaron Eckhart, Laura Linney, Valerie Mahaffey, Delphi Harrington, Mike O’Malley, Jamey Sheridan, Anna Gunn, Holt McCallany | Written by Todd Komarnicki | Directed by Clint Eastwood

If there is one thing we know about 2017, it is that it is a dark time. What we need is a glimmer of hope, something to show that there is still good out there, and surprisingly there is evidence of that in movies like Sully: Miracle on the Hudson. Though it also shows the clinical and cynical nature of the world we live in.

Sully: Miracle on the Hudson is based on the true story of Captain “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), the pilot who managed to land his plane saving all those aboard. Set in the days after the event, it delves both into Sully’s self-doubt about his actions, and the investigation that unfolded into his actions.

Richard Gere Has A New Career, Thanks To Two Israeli Filmmakers

13 April 2017 10:40 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This is the story of how two Israeli filmmakers transformed a Buddhist movie star into Bob Dylan, a New York homeless man, a Manhattan Jewish fixer, and a politician with family issues. It started when Oren Moverman wrote “I’m Not There” with director Todd Haynes, who cast Richard Gere as one of six versions of Bob Dylan.

Several years later, Gere spotted Moverman across a crowded room. “It was an Academy event in New York,” Gere said. “It was a cocktail thing for new members.” Moverman introduced him to Oscar-nominated Joseph Cedar (”Footnote”). They wound up talking Middle East politics. “The three of us were getting along great,” said Gere, who told the men, “If you want to do something that has to do with the Middle East, even in a tangential way, talk to me.”

The Love Actually Cast Actually Reunited in the Same Place….Almost

31 March 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

If there are two words I haven’t been able to stop hearing lately it’s Love Actually.    This was a movie that took place in 2003 and captured the hearts of millions.  Many consider it to be one of the better romantic films in history.  No, I’m being serious.  Love Actually sees nine intertwined stories examining the complexities of the one emotion that connects us all: love. Among the characters explored are David (Hugh Grant), the handsome newly elected British prime minister who falls for a young junior staffer (Martine McCutcheon), Sarah (Laura Linney), a graphic designer whose devotion to her

The Untold Tales Of Armistead Maupin – QFest St. Louis Review

29 March 2017 4:42 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Mark Longden

The Untold Tales Of Armistead Maupin  screens Sunday, Apr. 2 at 5:15pm at the .Zack (3224 Locust St., St. Louis, Mo 63103) as part of this year’s QFest St. Louis. Ticket information can be found Here

A completely sober retelling of Armistead Maupin’s life would still be interesting – his great-grandfather was a Congressman, then a Confederate soldier, dying in the Civil War; Maupin himself was a Vietnam veteran who met Richard Nixon in the Oval Office; worked for ultra-right-wing Senator Jesse Helms; was once seduced by Rock Hudson; and became famous for his fiction because no-one would go on the record for him and he just decided to fictionalise the people he was meeting every day. But this documentary, as well as having all that in it, is colourful and fun and hilarious, and is definitely recommended.

 We go on a roughly chronological wander through Maupin’s life, »

Five Films Executive Produced By Martin Scorsese

24 March 2017 12:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Wheatley’s new film Free Fire has been described as a brutally effective film and an irresistible adrenaline shot of cinema; this is perhaps unsurprising considering the talent behind it, particularly legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese who executive produced the film. In commemoration with Free Fire’s theatrical release, we have collected five pictures Scorsese was involved in but did not direct that readers may be unaware of.

Before the Flood (2016)

This documentary looks at the effect of climate change on our environment and what can be done to prevent the demise of endangered species, ecosystems and native communities across the planet. Whilst Leonardo Dicaprio’s starring role in the project makes Scorsese’s involvement somewhat unsurprising, it is still interesting to see him venture into such a timely subject matter and it is an essential addition to their extensive history of collaboration.

‘The Savages’ Director Tamara Jenkins Returns with ‘Private Life’

15 March 2017 9:05 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

This year will mark a decade since the release of The Savages, the second feature from Slums of Beverly Hills director Tamara Jenkins. Starring Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, it was a powerfully-acted, perceptive look at familial struggle, and we’ve been waiting ever since for her follow-up. 10 years later, it is finally coming and a cast has already been set.

Financed and distributed by Netflix, Private Life stars Paul Giamatti, Kathryn Hahn, Molly Shannon, and John Carroll Lynch. Jenkins’ script follows a married couple (Giamatti and Hahn) who are struggling with infertility and its damaging effect on their relationship, but when their niece offers up her eggs, things change. Shannon, who picked up an Indie Spirit award for Other People this year, will play the niece’s mother, while Lynch plays Giamatti’s brother and Shannon’s husband.

Ray Donovan Season 5 Taps Susan Sarandon for Major Arc

13 March 2017 10:32 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If you've been enjoying Susan Sarandon on Feud: Bette and Joan, you're in luck.

She'll be sticking around television for the foreseeable future. It seems Sarandon has been bitten by the TV bug!

While she's had guest starring roles in the past, none have been quite as notable as these. Up next? A major recurring arc on Ray Donovan Season 5.

Sarandon has had other roles in television.

Aside from one-offs and movies, she had a recurring arc on Rescue Me as Alicia Green.

Alicia got involved with Franco at just about the time he began getting more involved with his daughter, Keela, and that made for quite a dramatic relationship between Alicia and Franco because of how Alicia felt about Keela needing a family.

Sarandon also had a recurring arc on HBO's The Big C starring Laura Linney and Oliver Platt. Sarandon's character becomes a spiritual guru to Platt's character and things run amok. »

The Dinner trailer: Oren Moverman’s film premiered at this year’s Berlinale

2 March 2017 12:20 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Dinner trailer: Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan and Rebecca Hall lead the cast.

Oren Moverman‘s latest film The Dinner has had its first trailer released. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival back last month to rather mixed reviews, but does boast an impressive cast that includes Richard Gere, Steve Coogan, Laura Linney and Rebecca Hall. The action revolves around an intimate, if slightly pretentious dinner in a very swanky restaurant where two couples are brought together to face up to some pretty heavy conversation. The Dinner trailer can be viewed in the player below.

Here’s the official synopsis:

A former history teacher and his wife Claire meet at a fancy restaurant with his elder brother, a prominent politician and his wife Babette. The plan is to discuss over dinner how to handle a crime committed by their teenage sons. The violent act of the »

May 5th sees the release of Oren Moverman’s The Dinner, a dark family drama starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Steve Coogan and Rebecca Hall. To get the ball rolling, The Orchard have now served up a fresh trailer to give audiences an idea of what to expect, and it certainly looks interesting.

He invites Steve Coogan’s estranged little brother Paul and Laura Linney’s Claire to join for dinner with his wife in one of the hottest haute-cuisine restaurants in town. But this isn’t some polite soiree, and things rapidly go south as it’s revealed that the sons of the two couples have committed an awful crime that’s shocked America.
