Saved; The Phoenix of Madrid; Iphigenia – review

14 October 2011 11:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Lyric Hammersmith, London; Theatre Royal Bath

People go to Saved thinking they know what they will see. They've been told often enough. A baby is stoned to death in a park by a group of youths; a middle-aged woman has her stocking provocatively darned (she's inside it: 'You watch where yer pokin') by her daughter's young admirer. These are the scenes that caused Edward Bond's play to be banned by the Lord Chamberlain in 1965; these are the scenes that have made it famous.

Yet in Sean Holmes's superb production, the play looks less simply confrontational and rebarbative than the stoning suggests. It is intricate, far-reaching and believable. Intervening history – the killing of James Bulger, the Baby P case – may have added to its credibility, but its real force isn't adventitious. The horror begins to look inevitable.

More Meryl as Maggie With New Pics from The Iron Lady

27 April 2011 2:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I’m still secretly hoping that this is all part of a live action sequel to Brad Bird’s The Iron Giant but with every new image released that dream is looking far more unlikely.

Here’s another image from the production and it’s Maggie and Dennis in their iconic Blue salute and Meryl Streep and Jim Broadbent’s own features seem to be undergoing some strange metamorphosis into those of their originals – I know make up and lighting can do wonders but there’s something unsettling here (more than the obvious).

Anyhoo, along with the two the cast looks like this: Richard E Grant, Olivia Colman, Nicholas Farrell, Susan Brown, Roger Allam, Anthony Head and John Sessions. Nice.

We Are Movie Geeks collected these pictures, and a jolly good job they did. »

More Set Pictures from Thatcher Biopic The Iron Lady

18 February 2011 3:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

More pictures from the set of Phyllida Lloyd’s film of the life of 80s political Bellatrix Margaret Thatcher, and so far we’ve seen Meryl Streep confuse decades of satirical drubbing by portraying her as more glamourous than history remembers.

While Thatcher’s reign of power is where the film will undoubtedly set the majority of its scene the new pictures below confirm that the early life of Margaret Hilda Roberts will play its part. Alexandra Roach is starring as the young Maggie alongside Harry Lloyd as the younger Denis Thatcher.

Here’s a picture of him,

and here’s the real Denis later in life,

Uncanny. Jim Broadbent stars as the later Denis Thatcher, and the cast is rounded off with Richard E Grant, Olivia Colman, Nicholas Farrell, Susan Brown, Roger Allam, Anthony Head and John Sessions.

Here are the set pics from the South London set showing »
