Depressed about Brexit? Outsiders is the comedy that makes you want to stay in | Anne Henry

10 August 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The sitcom about a multicultural London flatshare was produced before the Brexit vote – but has ended up becoming an ideal response to it

Brexit, to paraphrase James Joyce, is a nightmare from which many of us are still trying to awake. While young people overwhelmingly voted remain, they woke up to find themselves in Brexit Britain. Racist incidents are on the up, the pound’s gone down, and everyone in charge appears to be, to put it mildly, behaving like a photographic negative of Rudyard Kipling’s If. And it became clear to me that we’ve become an international laughing stock when David Simon, creator of The Wire, approvingly tweeted of Michael Gove and Boris Johnson’s machinations: “Shit is West Baltimore, but with Pimm’s, tweed and crustless cucumber sandwiches. F’real, Brits are just gangster.” Laugh it up, Chuckles. You’ll be sorry when Trump gets his »

Locarno: Cameron Bailey on Audience Trends, Fest Competition, Value of Reboots

7 August 2016 11:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Theatrical largely did die,” stated Toronto Fest artistic director Cameron Bailey, kicking off the Locarno 2016 edition of Step-In. Whether that is a problem or we’re just being nostalgic was one of the questions addressed by Step-In, Locarno’s industry think tank for distribution, exhibition, and sales professionals of auteur cinema, which launched on Friday Aug. 5 with a panel featuring Tiff artistic director Cameron Bailey, Telefilm Canada’s Carolle Brabant, Mongrel Media CEO Hussain Amarshi, and Emerging PicturesIra Deutchman. Bailey discussed what trends in audience habits signify from a festival perspective, how Tiff is catering to the niche “villages” of interest now emerging, and to the increasing multiplicity of choice facing audiences. Following the session, Variety grabbed Bailey at Locarno.

In what ways is Tiff embracing the current changes taking place in the world and in the film industry?

Any significant festival that lasts has to change all the time. »

Marni Nixon, Voice Behind Stars in Movie Musicals Like ‘My Fair Lady,’ Dies at 86

25 July 2016 8:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Marni Nixon, who gained fame as a “ghost singer” for Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” died of breast cancer on Sunday in New York City. She was 86.

In the 1940s, ’50s and into the ’60s, major film actresses without great singing voices were often “dubbed” by anonymous background singers. Studio execs preferred to keep alive the myth that the stars did their own singing. Nixon became the most famous of these — inadvertently at first, because Kerr spilled the beans in an interview about “The King and I” in 1956.

She was born Feb. 22, 1930, in Altadena, Calif. By the time she was 4, her family discovered that she had the rare gift of “perfect pitch” and started her on violin lessons.

By the time she was 7, she was working as an extra or bit player in films, which continued through her teen years. »

[Cannes Review] Sieranevada

12 May 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

For this critic’s money, of the several excellent filmmakers to emerge from the Romanian New Wave, Cristi Puiu ranks as the most formidable. After kicking off his career in 2001 with the outstanding Stuff and Dough, a small-scale but expertly modulated road/drug-deal movie, Puiu made two bona fide masterpieces back to back: The Death of Mr. Lazarescu and Aurora. While his newest dramatic feature, Sieranevada, may fall just short of M-word classification by not reaching the same level of radical invention as its two predecessors, it is nonetheless another proud entry in Puiu’s stellar filmography.

Unlike Aurora, which was largely made up of silences, observing its solitary everyman protagonist as he wandered around before and after committing a quadruple murder, the dialogue in Sieranevada rushes forth in a stupefying torrent that begins as soon as the opening credits finish and is sustained almost without cease until the film’s closing image. »

The First Thing Brie Larson Wants to Do After Awards Season? Finish Finnegans Wake

28 February 2016 10:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It's been a whirlwind awards season for Room star Brie Larson, who is very likely to end up taking home the Best Actress Oscar at Sunday's Academy Awards. But the first thing she wants to do when it is all over has nothing to do with movies. "I really want to read Finnegans Wake," Larson, 26, told reporters at the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards - where she nabbed another best actress award - of her non-work plans. "It's really hard. I'm traveling so much, I have to like put it aside because I'm not - something like that, I really like to feel the pages. »
