Judging by the Park City crowds that attempted to elbow their way into the world premiere of Going Clear: Scientology And The Prison Of Belief one might say this is Alex Gibney’s most talked-about film to date.
And that is saying a lot for the veteran documentarian who has made a career out of pushing boundaries.
The film adopts a similar structure to Lawrence Wright’s 2013 bestseller of the same name, focusing on eight people who broke away from the grip of the Scientology community and their difficult, often troubling, stories that resulted.
As the title of both film and book suggests, ‘The Prison Of Belief’ is what Gibney and Wright refer to as the boxed-in walls that confine a person into believing what they are told. It is, as Gibney puts it, “that ‘terrifying certainty of faith’ that gives comfort in not having to ask the tough questions everyday.”

Katie Holmes is to star in 'Ray Donovan'. The former 'Dawson's Creek' star - who has eight-year-old daughter Suri with ex-husband Tom Cruise - is joining the Showtime drama as ''shrewd and chic'' businesswoman Paige, the daughter of billionaire producer Andrew Finney (Ian McShane) who hires fixer Ray (Liev Schreiber). The 35-year-old beauty has a bust few months ahead as she will reprise her role as Jackie Kennedy in 'The Kennedys: After Camelot' in the spring. She is also preparing to make her directorial debut in 'All We Had, in which she will also star, and she will be seen in 'Woman in Gold' opposite Ryan Reynolds and Dame Helen Mirren. Katie recently admitted she is pleased to be back working after a few years off, and is ''excited'' about what other acting roles she might be offered in the future. She added: ''Work ebbs and flows »
She is described as “a shrewd and chic businesswoman” and should be a challenge for movie stalwart Holmes, who made her name on the small screen in Dawson’s Creek. She returned properly to TV in 2011 for The Kennedys mini series (a sequel to which is coming next year) but this recurring role is an interesting change of pace. The actress was most recently seen in The Giver.
Entering production for its third season, Ray Donovan concerns a “fixer” for the great and good in Los Angeles who has to juggle the personal and the professional whilst keeping one step ahead of an ever-inquisitive FBI. In the past it’s boasted an array of meaty acting names, such as James Woods, Elliott Gould and Rosanna Arquette. »

Katie Holmes is ready to meet Ray Donovan. The Dawson’s Creek actress will be joining the cast of the Showtime drama for its third season in what is being described as a “major” role. Holmes will play Paige, a businesswoman that is described as “shrewd” and “chic” and who also happens to be the daughter to another new Ray Donovan character, Andrew Finney, who will be played by Ian McShane. As we already reported last week, McShane’s Finney will be “a prominent movie producer and billionaire who hires Ray (Liev Schreiber) to get his family out of a potentially catastrophic situation.” While McShane’s casting creates the possibility of a Deadwood reunion between him and his former co-star Paula Malcomson, who plays Ray’s wife Abby on the Showtime series, Holmes’ casting also allows for a reunion of sorts, since she and her former Dawson’s Creek co-star »
