All that Glitters: Curtis Traps Compelling Kernel in Avalanche of Schmaltz
British television alum Simon Curtis graduated to feature filmmaking in 2011 with the incredibly problematic My Week with Marilyn. Apparently, whatever its faults, they were easy to overlook, as the film nabbed a number of critics’ choice awards, along with prestigious BAFTA and Academy Award nominations. Unfortunately, his penchant for mawkishness has showed no sides of abatement in his follow-up feature, Woman in Gold, also based on compelling true events but at least portraying subjects that feel imbued with less drastic measures of caricature since they aren’t ingrained in cultural pop subconscious with such sacred fury.
In the late 1990s, the Austrian government began to revamp its art restitution laws in reference to victims of WWII. Upon the death of her sister, Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren), an elderly Los Angeles shop keeper who had fled Austria sixty years prior to escape the Nazis, »

Max Irons, a co-star of “Woman in Gold,” said he got his role in the Nazi drama starring Helen Mirren after studio head Harvey Weinstein summoned him to his office. “Can you speak German?” Weinstein asked the actor. Irons couldn’t. “I had to do an audition in 24 hours with a page of solid text,” Irons recalled. “I panicked, drank a lot of coffee, used Google and YouTube and cobbled together what I’m sure was terrible German. But I managed to somehow get the part.”
Irons told Variety this story on Monday night at the red carpet MoMA premiere of “Woman in Gold.” It was an uncharacteristically muted evening for the Weinstein Co. Earlier in the day, media reports surfaced that Weinstein had been questioned by the NYPD over the weekend for allegedly groping a 22-year-old Italian model at his Tribeca offices. No charges have been filed and an investigation is ongoing, »

Katie Holmes is showing off her sexy side! The 36-year-old star stole the spotlight at the "Women In Gold" premiere in New York City on Monday night. Donning an embroidered pink Zac Posen dress, the actress flaunted her toned midriff and a bit of sideboob through the center cut-out detailing. She completed her edgy ensemble with black Manolo Blahnik pumps, minimal makeup and a swept-back 'do. The notoriously-private celeb has been making more public appearances this week than she has in years. In fact, she made a rare public stop with daughter Suri Cruise, 8, at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday night. The last time we saw Tom and Katie's little girl in public was back in March 2014, when she attended a basketball game with Holmes. The "Dawson's Creek" alum recently opened up about her special relationship with her daughter. "The most important thing for me is letting her »

Not even Katie Holmes can resist the power of Angelina Jolie. The Woman in Gold actress, 36, was in the audience at the Kids' Choice Awards with daughter Suri on Saturday, March 28, when Jolie took the stage to accept the orange blimp for Best Villain -- and just like everyone else who watched the Maleficent star's speech, Holmes was utterly entranced.

Chicago – The painting “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” was created by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt, and was considered Austria’s greatest artwork. The remarkable journey of the painting, stolen from its original Jewish family by the Nazis during World War II, is the basis for the new film, “Woman in Gold,” directed by Simon Curtis.
“Woman in Gold” is based on the true story of Maria Altmann (portrayed in the film by Helen Mirren), a Viennese immigrant in the United States who fought the Austrian government for rightful claim to her family’s paintings in the 1990s, including the famous gold leaf portrait of her Aunt Adele. Altmann brings in an American lawyer named Randol Schoenberg (Ryan Reynolds) to act as her lawyer, and their years of litigation to make this art restitution was one of the most high profile of these cases. The film includes flashbacks of the family in Vienna during those war years, »

Frankly, I am still coping with every odious aspect of Scientology as illustrated in "Going Clear," HBO's blockbuster documentary about L. Ron Hubbard's glitzy "church" and its indoctrinated, oft-abused followers. Plenty is not funny about what's done to keep devoted followers in horrifying conditions. For instance: Who knows where David Miscavige's wife Shelly is? According to Tony Ortega, who was featured in "Going Clear," it's nowhere you want to be. But even the grimmest absurdity is often hilarious, as "Going Clear" itself proved. As we begin to understand everything we learned (or re-learned) in "Going Clear," let's focus on five moments in Scientology's history that are undeniably, insanely, creepily funny. 1. That L. Ron Hubbard has said -- in print -- "I'd like to start a religion. That's where the real money is." In fact, L. Ron Hubbard said several versions of this statement worded several different ways. It's just a fact. »

The revelations in last night's premiere of Alex Gibney's doc Going Clear left plenty of mouths agape — from abuse allegations at Sea Org to charges that John Travolta is being blackmailed — but 119 minutes wasn't nearly long enough to cover every Scientology scandal. What about Katie Holmes? And David Miscavige's "missing" wife, Shelly? We've rounded a few of the craziest stories that didn't make the final cut of Going Clear. (Did someone say "sequel"?) Katie Holmes No, you didn’t miss the part where they talked about Katie Holmes, because they never talked about Katie Holmes. Going Clear skipped straight from Nicole Kidman to the Nazanin Boniadi incident, a.k.a. when they tried to cast Tom Cruise's new girlfriend. But what about his six-year marriage to Holmes? How Katie broke off her engagement to fellow actor Chris Klein and flew to Los Angeles to meet the star »

Sixteen-year-old Brooklyn posed with his brothers, 12-year-old Romeo, and 10-year-old Cruz, as they made their way into the show, which included plenty of slimy moments. Brooklyn later shared on Instagram: "Great time with my bros." They weren't the only celebrity kids at the event, since Angelina Jolie brought Shiloh and Zahara and Katie Holmes had Suri by her side.

There she is! Aside from a back-of-the-head Instagram shot here or there, we haven't seen too much of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise's daughter Suri in almost an entire year -- but last night, she had a girls' night out with her mama. The 8-year-old tot attended the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with Katie on Saturday night, the two photographed in the audience with a family friend. Clad in an ombre skirt, denim vest and quilted purse, Suri looked just like her famous mother, who was dressed in a low-cut, loose-fitting top and white pants. The last time we saw Tom and Katie's little girl in public was back in March 2014, when she attended a basketball game with Holmes.

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.
