Isabel Coixet’s ‘The Bookshop’ Tops Spain’s 2018 Goya Awards

Isabel Coixet’s ‘The Bookshop’ Tops Spain’s 2018 Goya Awards
Madrid — Just three hours after female talent was amply awarded at Sweden’s Göteborg Festival, Scandinavia’s biggest film event, Isabel Coixet’s “The Bookshop” topped the 32nd Goya Awards Saturday night, winning best picture, director and adapted screenplay.

Healthily sold abroad by Celsius, and a sturdy box office performer in Spain, where it has earned $2.9 million, “The Bookshop” is produced by Spain’s A Contracorriente Films and Diagonal TV and Zephyr Films. A big-screen makeover of Penelope Fitzgerald’s quietly subversive 1978 novel, about a widow opening up a bookshop in a sleepy coastal town, “The Bookshop’s” triumph represents only the second time an English-language movie has won a best picture Goya. The first was Coixet’s “The Secret Life of Words” in 2006.

A coming-of-ager – and ode to diversity – hailed by Variety as a “delicate sleeper,” Carla Simon’s debut “Summer 1993” took first feature at the Goyas, as well breakthrough actress (Bruna Cursi) and supporting actor (David Verdaguer

A Mexican Affair

A Mexican Affair Created and performed by Rafa Reyes Produced and directed by Jeremy Williams The Metropolitan Room, NYC Saturday, April 8, 2017

What keeps A Mexican Affair -- cabaret show headlined by Rafa Reyes and backed by a fine Latin group -- going? It is the immense personable charm and contagious self-delight of Rafa himself, coupled with the powerful support he receives from the quintet behind him. This young singer from Mexico, who came to the United States to attend New York’s American Musical and Dramatic Academy, certainly has “that something” and it bespeaks of the kind of presence that compels an audience to stay with him and see what will unfold. That’s no mean feat in the world of solo cabaret performing (or in solo performing of any kind). The seasoned New York cabaret audience knows immediately if the performer in front of them is up to something,

A Quick Word Of Praise For Marvel On Their Organic Integration Of Diversity

  • LRM Online
I should probably start by reiterating a very key point:

I don't care about diversity.

Despite being a latino actor, myself, and being the nephew of Elizabeth Peña- who was a role model for many hispanic actors- I've really never batted an eyelash over the idea of diversity on television or a desire to be represented on screens both big and small. For me, personally, when considering what movie to watch, what network to tune into, or which artist to support, it all boils down to one question: Does it interest me? I don't see skin color. I don't see gender. I see an opportunity for entertainment, and ask myself if it's something I'd like to check out.

With that said, I do find it cool when I see certain marginalized groups get recognition in an organic and natural way. In last week's column "Will Latino Audiences Continue To

Morelia: Online Shorts Selection Showcases Mexico Talent, Trends
David Zonana’s “Princesa,” produced by Michel Franco (“Chronic”) and Gabriel Ripstein (“600 Miles”), toon pic “A Nap on the Train” – which underscores the sophistication of Mexican animation – and Ileana Leyva’s “In the Hallways,” a film suggesting its geographic spread – are featured in the Morelia Fest 2nd Online Mexican Short Film Selection.

Near double in size– 34 titles vs. 2014’s 19 – the titles will play YouTube and a fest micro website during Mexico’s Morelia Fest, which runs Oct. 23 to Nov. 1.

Requiring permission from producers to play online, selection takes in half of the shorts that will screen from Friday at Morelia. Some buzzed-up titles – Juan Jose Medina and Rita Basulto’s “Zimbo,” or the eco-conscious “Jaguar” in animation; Alejandro Gerber’s “Luces brillantes” in fiction – aren’t in the cut; which will of course lend even more excitement to the short films’ cinema theater exhibition at Morelia.

Continuing the Marvel news from New York Comic-Con 2013, Marvel have announced another new series for their All-New Marvel Now! line-up in 2014, this time featuring the all-star creative team of Superior Spider-Man writer Dan Slott and Ff artist Mike Allred: Silver Surfer.

They may not have invented the concept, but the Marvel movies have perfected the "post-credits sting": addictive choc drops for fans faithful enough to sit through screeds of acknowledgements. These scenes featured surprising cameos and dangled enough common plot threads to sell the idea of a shared Marvel universe, where Tony Stark could sashay into the world of the Incredible Hulk or the Avengers could silently enjoy some post-New-York-saving shawarma.

The Top Five Ya Authors Whose Books We’d Like to See on the Big Screen

5. Ally Condie

Starting the list off at number five is Ally Condie and her Matched trilogy. The series follows protagonist Cassia Reyes in a dystopian future where people are paired up for marriage by Society. Love and attraction don’t play a part in the matching of the newly turned seventeen year olds, but rather the pairing is strictly based on science and algorithms. When Cassia is paired up with her childhood best friend, Xander Carrow, her future looks bright, until she begins to fall in love with Ky Markham, an outcast amongst their society.

While it seems that all popular young adult novels these days fall under the dystopian banner, Condie’s work is both gripping and greatly refreshing. And while her book does play with the ever present teenage love triangle, hers doesn’t feel forced or generic. Cassia’s doubt, fear and uncertainty come across as genuine,

'X-Men: Days Of Future Past': Sentinels - Required Reading

by Brett White

With Trask Industries "celebrating its 50th anniversary" by launching a super informative website (it also ties into "X-Men: Days of Future Past"—sshhh!), suddently Sentinels are all the rage! People can't stop talking about the giant, purple, mutant-hunting robots—and rightfully so! Need I reiterate that they are giant purple robots? It does not get much cooler than that.

The robotic foes have been a thorn in the X-Men's side since their early days, and the mechanical menaces have popped up in everything from video games to cartoons over the franchise's 50 years of existence. Truthfully, we could easily do more than one Required Reading post about the Sentinels—and we could even throw in a Required Watching or two ("Final Decision" from "X-Men" season one!). But when it comes down to the most essential Sentinel stories, here are the five that made the cut.
