Cannes Film Review: ‘American Honey’

14 May 2016 4:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As a girl’s gaze meets a boy’s across the packed aisles of a Midwestern Walmart, the euphoric Edm throb of Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s 2011 smash “We Found Love” hijacks the busy soundscape, setting a love story emphatically in motion by the time he hops up to dance on the checkout counter. “We found love in a hopeless place,” the song’s chorus ecstatically declares, over and over, as well it might — does it get more hopeless than Walmart, after all? It’s a gesture so brazenly big and romantically literal that it can’t help but have your heart, and it’s such an early, ebullient cinematic climax that Arnold dares repeat it two hours later, cranking up the song again in a more fraught, »

Wainwright said: “Something about the lives of these three brilliant, talented Yorkshire women seems to »

The forgotten genius: why Anne wins the battle of the Brontës

23 March 2016 10:54 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

For the BBC’s Being the Brontës, I got behind the bullied youngest sister – a feminist and social firebrand whose ideas were way over Charlotte’s head and years before their time

We know about Emily Brontë (who gave us Wuthering Heights, Cathy, Heathcliff, Laurence Olivier in leather britches striding across Hollywood moors – for which, absolutely, many thanks – and Kate Bush) and Charlotte Brontë (Jane Eyre, the red room, mad wife in the attic, blinded Byronic hero who nevertheless sees through the heroine’s plain exterior to love the passionate heart within). But who, really, has heard of Anne Brontë? We are more likely to know about their drunken brother Branwell, who never got his act together, than we are about the third sister. Why is she the underdog, the unknown Brontë, when any reading of their collected works will show her talent burning as brightly and as fiercely as those of her famous sisters? »
