Hunky Dory – review

3 March 2012 4:07 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Looking like a sexy hamster, Minnie Driver plays Viv (short for Vivienne, but suggestive of vivacious), a failed actress recently returned to teach drama at a comprehensive in her native south Wales. Her dedication and enthusiasm are an affront to virtually everyone else in the staff room but most especially the overweight sports master and the sour social sciences teacher (Haydn Gwynne), and they're determined to undermine the ambitious rock-opera version of Shakespeare's The Tempest she's directing as the big end-of-term event. The pupils, a surly foul-mouthed crowd, are only mildly interested at first, as is the old-fashioned headmaster (Robert Pugh), and a predictable crisis ensues as Viv tries to keep the show on the road.

The year is 1976, which means that unemployment wasn't as bad as it was later to become, though no one appears to be associated with coal-mining, and there's no need to bother about the weather »

Michael – review

3 March 2012 4:06 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Josef Fritzl affair and similar cases of horrendous incarceration revealed in its wake have now produced a sizable body of documentaries, feature films and fiction too, of which Michael is a minor, rather puzzling addition. The 40-year-old Austrian film-maker Markus Schleinzer, whose first feature film this is, has worked as a casting director on over 60 films, among them Michael Haneke's The Piano Teacher, Time of the Wolf and, most significantly, The White Ribbon, on which he coached the child actors.

The eponymous Michael (Michael Fuith) is a 35-year-old minor official with an Austrian insurance company, who keeps the 10-year-old Wolfgang (David Rauchenberger) a prisoner in the soundproofed basement of his suburban home. Michael is a bespectacled, nondescript loner with a brother and sister both married with children. He largely keeps to himself, rejecting the advances of a female colleague, whom he physically throws out of his house when she intrudes. »

Exclusive Interview: Director Marc Evans talks Hunky Dory

29 February 2012 7:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Last week, I got to chat with Director Marc Evans for his new movie, Hunky Dory which comes out this Friday 2nd March. It stars Minnie Driver (who we also got to chat with – look out for that interview tomorrow), Aneurin Barnard, Danielle Branch, Robert Pugh, Haydn Gwynne and Steve Speirs. The movie is about a drama teacher named Vivienne (Driver) at a high school in Swansea who sets about putting on a rock ‘n’ roll version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, during the hottest UK summer on record in 1976.

If you’re a fan of Grease, High School Musical or Glee, then you should definitely check it out. I like the movie a little more than Lisa who’s review is live here. During the interview with Marc, we find out where the story came from, if it was inspired by TV shows like Glee and what it was »
