Read More: Sex and the Revolutionary Female Perspective in Marielle Heller's 'Diary of a Teenage Girl' As the "The Diary of a Teenage Girl" opens this weekend, we got to thinking about female coming-of-age films. The problem, though, is that there aren't many. And there are even fewer that treat sex with the same abandon as male-perspective movies. Where does it leave young women when the only onscreen representations they see are filtered through the male gaze? Here are five examples of films that dared to break the mold and show us teenage girls discovering sex — from their point of view. 1. "Somersault" Cate Shortland's poignant debut is one of the most criminally under-seen movies of the past decade. This little 2004 Australian gem gave Abbie Cornish her breakout role as Heidi, a precocious sixteen-year-old who, after succumbing to the advances of her mother's boyfriend, leaves a toxic home environment »

Once conceived as a sequel to David Fincher’s excellent 1995 thriller Seven, Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell play a dangerous game of cat and mouse in the thrilling international trailer for Solace - or Prémonitions.
Operating on each side of the law, each of the two nominal leads boast psychic abilities, though while Hopkins’ former doctor John Clancy puts his supernatural powers to good use, it is Colin Farrell’s elusive criminal who taps into his powers for nefarious reasons. It’s a ying-yang dynamic that is by no means novel, but Hopkins and Farrell have long proven their acting clout, and we’re intrigued to see them go head-to-head for a cerebral battle of the brains in Solace.

The first trailer for a serial killer thriller called Solace, or Prémonitions, recently debuted and if you haven't seen it you can check it out below. The film stars Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell, one a psychic, the other a serial killer, who battle mind-to-mind. Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Abbie Cornish, Marley Shelton and Xander Berkeley also star.

Here's the first official trailer for Afonso Poyart's Solace, or Prémonitions, found via Latino Review: A psychic works with an FBI special agent in order to hunt down a serial killer.

Supernatural thrillers are often hit or miss for me, but the combination of cast and crew for a film called Solace has me more interested than I otherwise might be. The film stars Anthony Hopkins as a psychic who works with FBI agents (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Abbie Cornish) to hunt down a serial killer, played by Colin Farrell. Newcomer Alfonso Poyart directs from a screenplay pieced together by a handful of names, including Sean Bailey, Peter Morgan (Rush), Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven), James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) and Jonathan Hirschbein. Obviously there is a lot going on there, and the fact so many writers have contributed to the script could certainly be a sign of trouble, but the names do add to the intrigue a bit. A little Google searching adds even more intrigue, as the film's Wikipedia page notes Solace was originally written as a sequel to David Fincher's Se7en »

Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins are two psychics playing mind games in the first trailer for “Solace.” Hopkins plays a former doctor with psychic abilities who is called in to help the FBI catch a serial killer (Farrell), who also seems to have supernatural abilities since he’s consistently one step ahead of the authorities. Afonso Poyart directed the Eden Rock Media production executive produced by Hopkins, Sean Bailey, Jacob Pechenik and Gerd Shepers.

Shot in 2013 and sitting around ever since, it's probably not the best sign that the psychological, supernatural serial killer thriller "Solace" is of a particularly high caliber. That said, the cast is enough to lure more than a few viewers, with Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Abbie Cornish among the players. And now you can see the result with the first trailer.

At one time it was being lined up as a potential "Se7en" sequel.

Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Abbie Cornish star in the film about an FBI agent (Cornish) who enlists he help of a retired doctor (Hopkins) with psychic abilities to track down a murderer (Farrell).

Directed by Neil Armfield, this much-anticipated film adaptation of Timothy Conigrave’s memoir is sensual yet ultimately unsatisfying
Actor Timothy Conigrave’s bestselling memoir Holding the Man, an intimate account of his 15-year relationship with lover John Caleo, was published in 1995 and adapted by playwright Tommy Murphy into an award-winning stage production in 2006. Australian theatre doyen Neil Armfield reconfigures the material once more, this time for the big screen, directing his first feature film since 2006’s Candy with Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish.
Rather than recalibrating the film as a literary adaptation, the director’s fondness for the stage play is obvious. Murphy was recruited once more for screenwriting duties and the production’s theatrical bloodline is at times plain to all and sundry. You can get away dialogue like “be it on your conscience” on the stage, but in film such stately-sounding words feel contrived – not surprisingly, like actors reading from scripts. »

Abbie Cornish is giving away a big Hollywood secret -- and we love her for doing it! The actress took to Instagram to show off her killer curves in nothing but a nude bra and a pair of Spanx on Monday, while on the set of her latest film. "Feel like I just stepped out of Sia's 'Elastic Heart' music video lol #SetLife," she captioned the sexy mirror selfie. "#NotSoGlamorousMovieUnderwear." The Australian beauty is, of course, referring to the Sia's infamous music video where Shia Labeouf and "Dance Moms" star Maddie Ziegler dance in their skivvies. As for her "Not So Glamorous" underwear, the body-shaping garment helps give those who wear them a slimmer physique. Cornish isn't the only star who proudly wears Spanx. Kim Kardashian recently told Elle magazine that she depends on the shapewear to look thin. "Sometimes I wear two pairs [of Spanx] under something or stockings — it holds you in, »

A taut and intense action adventure, The Dead Lands is a superb showcase for director Toa Fraser. It provides an insight into a culture not often explored on screen - set in pre-colonial New Zealand, the film’s dialogue is entirely in the Maori language - while delivering the kind of pared-back revenge story you might expect from a western or a samurai film.
In other words, The Dead Lands is both unique to its country and universal; its historical setting and subtitles might suggest something for the arthouse crowd, but its bruising fight scenes will please the action crowd, too. What’s more, James Cameron is officially a fan.
First announced quietly last summer, it looks like things are starting to push ahead for Cate Shortland's next feature, "Berlin Syndrome." If you're not familiar with the filmmaker's work, be sure to check out "Somersault," which features a breakout performance by Abbie Cornish, and a really good turn by Sam Worthington, and her moody WWII picture "Lore." The director's latest marks another shifting of gears. Based on the novel by Melanie Joosten, Teresa Palmer will star in the psychological thriller about a new relationship that suddenly shows some darker edges. Here's the official synopsis: While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photojournalist Clare meets Andi, a charismatic local man and there is an instant attraction between them. A night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance suddenly takes an unexpected and sinister turn when Clare wakes the following morning to discover Andi has »
