Girl Trouble: When Women Watch Movies

The Intervention's appealing ensemble. (Courtesy Paramount)

It's no secret that women are still mostly used as beards in studio bromances or scenery in tentpole actioners. But even smaller character-driven films can’t always be counted on to provide satisfaction for those of us yearning to recognize some aspect of ourselves on screen. Faced with intimate stories that fail to bring female characters into focus or ambitious tales that mirror but don’t alleviate the special joys of being a girl (worldwide), female audiences are mostly left to get enlightenment or escape by dreaming ourselves into male characters and stories.

Men rule in the sinister Equity, a sleek woman-powered drama that compels attention from start to finish but occasionally thwarts our need for clarity. Three women’s fates intertwine in what is essentially a horror movie about the perils of being female in the high-stakes world of finance (and elsewhere »

'Little Men' Review: Young Actors Make Indie Drama a Must-See

4 August 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Want to see two young actors give breakthrough performances? Then watch in Little Men, an intimate gem of a film directed by Ira Sachs, which means they're in the best of caring hands. What Sachs (The Delta, Forty Shades of Blue) and cowriter Mauricio Zacharias, who collaborated with the filmmaker on the gay-themed dramas Keep the Lights On and Love Is Strange, conjure up here is a serious pleasure, filled with messily human characters whose thoughts and feelings don't necessarily emerge from the words they speak. You have to lean in and pay attention. »

Little Men Review

1 August 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The hardest part about growing up – as a child – is having no control. Our lives are dictated by unpreventable outlying forces (mainly parents), and we often must seek different forms of comfort when life shifts unexpectedly (for the billionth time). That’s the touching theme of Ira SachsLittle Men, a pint-sized story about grown-up issues. Sachs sympathizes with the unfortunate losers of skyrocketing rents and borough gentrification, yet the film’s biggest shockwaves are felt by his two underage first-time feature stars – both of whom do a wonderful job just rolling with life’s punches.

Theo Taplitz stars as Jake Jardine, a Manhattan transplant trying to establish a new beginning in Brooklyn. Michael Barbieri plays his unexpected best friend and tour guide, Tony Calvelli. The two boys immediately hit it off, but there’s one problem – Jake’s dad (Brian, played by Greg Kinnear) is in the process of »

It Came From The Tube: The Initiation Of Sarah (1978)

5 June 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Brian DePalma’s Carrie (1976) has cast a very wide shadow since it hit theatres. Many horror films have used the trope of telekinesis for the greater bad following its release, including Jennifer, The Fury, Patrick, The Medusa Touch (all ’78), Scanners (’81), and several more. (You can’t make me mention  Friday the 13th Part VII. Oh. Dammit.) Of course, television is anything if not inclusive, and the networks scrambled to come up with their own takes on teenage angst. However, ABC’s The Initiation of Sarah (1978) took a slightly different tact and sent the girl off to college – and ended up serving a strong dose of female empowerment.

First broadcast on Monday, February 6th, Sarah had her work cut out, not so much from NBC, who provided their own Monday Night at the Movies, but from CBS’ juggernaut of M*A*S*H/One Day at a Time. Regardless of ratings, »

Westworld Gets Fall 2016 Premiere on HBO

26 May 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

HBO announced today that four new shows will debut on the cable network this fall, the highly-anticipated Westworld, Divorce, Insecure and High Maintenance. The network didn't reveal any exact premiere dates for each show, but we'll have to wait and see when these dates will be announced. Hopefully the network will also be debuting trailers for each show soon, but they did debut a number of photos.

HBO's one-hour drama series Westworld (ten episodes) is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bols&#248 Berdal, Ben Barnes, »

‘Westworld’ Set for Fall Premiere at HBO

26 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has slated drama “Westworld” for a fall premiere, following delays that temporarily halted production on the series earlier this year. The network has also set comedies “Divorce,” “Insecure,” and “High Maintenance” to debut in the fall.

As Variety first reported, HBO shut down production of “Westworld” in January after the project fell behind schedule — previously having been slated to wrap production two months prior. Filming resumed three months later.

No specific premiere date has yet been set for any of the shows.

Production delays on “Westworld” were among a series of recent hitches in HBO’s scripted development that preceded this week’s departure of Michael Lombardo from his role as programming president of the network. Miniseries “Lewis & Clark,” from producers Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, suspended production in August and was put into redevelopment. HBO suspended drama series “Utopia” from David Fincher that same month, and »

Official Trailer for Ira Sachs' New Film 'Little Men' with Greg Kinnear

13 May 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Our parents are involved in a business matter..." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for Ira Sachs' Little Men, a film about two boys growing up in New York City. I was a huge fan of Ira Sachs' previous film, Love is Strange, and while I didn't love this one as much as that film - I still suggest seeing it. Greg Kinnear stars as the father of one of the two boys, who are played by Michael Barbieri and Theo Taplitz; the full cast also features Jennifer Ehle, Alfred Molina, Talia Balsam and Paulina Garcia. This is a rather wonderful trailer that really does a great job of setting up the story and hopefully grabbing the attention of a few curious cinephiles. But then again, it's worth watching any of Ira Sachs' films. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Ira Sachs' Little Men, »

First Trailer For Ira Sachs’ Sundance Hit ‘Little Men’ Starring Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Ehle & More

13 May 2016 10:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After delivering one of the finest dramas of its respective year with Love is Strange, writer-director Ira Sachs is back with Little Men. Premiering to much acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it centers on the relationship of two boys and how it becomes complicated when their parents get into a business disagreement. Ahead of a release this August, Magnolia Pictures has now unveiled the first trailer and poster.

We said in our review “Little Men could have been so much more if its perspective leaned towards the opposite direction. Why a story dealing heavily with gentrification and unfair leasing practice devotes more time to the gentrifiers than the displaced is a mystery to me. It might be more “challenging” in terms of audience sympathy, but it’s not as though the movie does all that much to make them sympathetic. Greg Kinnear’s Brian may be »

18 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Little Men review: Another gem from Love Is Strange filmmaker Ira Sachs, with an impeccable cast and a supreme new talent in young Michael Barbieri.

Little Men review by Paul Heath at the Berlin Film Festival, 2016. Little Men is the latest independent production from Ira Sachs, the talented film-maker behind Love Is Strange and Keep The Lights On.
