IFC Films Acquires Arnaud Desplechin's 'Jimmy P,' Starring Benicio Del Toro

22 October 2013 11:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

IFC Films has taken Us rights to Arnaud Desplechin's "Jimmy P," which premiered to very mixed reviews at Cannes in May. The film stars Benicio Del Toro as Jimmy Picard, a Blackfoot Indian overcome by psychological stress after fighting in World War II. Mathieu Amalric co-stars as Georges Devereux, an anthropologist analyzing Jimmy's mental state and behavior. The film, co-penned by Desplechin and Nyff director of programming Kent Jones and Julie Peyr, is based on the real-life Devereux's book, "Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian." This is French helmer Desplechin's first film since his brilliant 2008 family drama "A Christmas Tale," also starring Amalric, along with Catherine Deneuve and Emmanuelle Devos, among many others.   IFC is eyeing an early 2014 release. »

Interview with Arnaud Desplechin about Jimmy P

22 October 2013 8:19 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

Jimmy P and Georges Devereux: "And to be in Topeka, Kansas which is nothing, the most boring place in the world."

In Part 1 of my conversation with Arnaud Desplechin on Jimmy P: Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian, Jimmy Stewart began the masculine thread. Here the director sheds light on Mathieu Amalric's approach to his character Georges Devereux and how it differed from Benicio Del Toro's with Jimmy P.

We discussed how widowers, Gary Cooper's Doc Frail in The Hanging Tree and Henry Fonda's Young Mr. Lincoln, can give a "Thomas Hardy kind of feeling", and the ties Kings and Queen with Emmanuelle Devos, Catherine Deneuve, and Amalric has to Jimmy P.

Arnaud Desplechin arrived to meet me for our conversation with his star Mathieu Amalric and the current and former New York Film Festival Directors Kent Jones and Richard Peña.

Adopt Films Open the Books on Curious Unknown; Martin Provost’s Violette Set for 2014

2 October 2013 1:45 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Extremely well received at last month’s edition of Tiff, Martin Provost’s Violette becomes purchase number two (after Bethlehem) in just as many weeks for Jeff Lipsky’s Adopt Films. Screen Daily reports that the NYC-based distrib will release the biopic in May or June of next year.

Gist: Co-written by Provost, Marc Abdelnour and René de Ceccatty, Emmanuelle Devos stars in the eponymous role as the bisexual postwar author Violette Leduc, who was born out of wedlock and raised in poverty and went on to become the world renowned writer of The Bastard. This sees Sandrine Kiberlain star as Simone de Bouvoir, Jacques Bonnaffé as Jean Genet, Olivier Py as Maurice Sachs and Olivier Gourmet as Jacques Guérin.

Worth Noting: Leduc actually saw her novel novel Thérèse and Isabelle be adapted into a 1968 film by director Radley Metzger and starring Essy Persson and Anna Gael.

Adopt Films Nabs Tiff Fave 'Violette,' Starring Emmanuelle Devos (Trailer)

2 October 2013 8:55 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Adopt Films has taken all Us rights to "Violette," starring Emmanuelle Devos ("Coco Before Chanel," "The Beat My Heart Skipped") in the title role as feminist author Violette Leduc. The film, helmed by Martin Provost ("Seraphine"), premiered at Tiff, where Toh! had good things to say about it. We weren't the only ones who liked it. Variety called it a "sharply observed, sympathetic biopic of a trailblazing author," and the NY Times found it "deeply satisfying." Both praised Devos' performance. The film spans twenty years, from the last days of WWII until the publication of Leduc's first bestseller "The Bastard." The film charts her young life of poverty, having been born out of wedlock, to her sensational friendships with fellow authors and mentors Simone de Beauvoir, Jean Genet and Maurice Sachs, to her life as a bisexual woman and an estimable literary talent.

Toronto Film Review: ‘Violette’

24 September 2013 4:56 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The trailblazing feminist writer Violette Leduc gets a biopic fully worthy of her complex life and work with “Violette.” In this thematic bookend to his 2008 “Seraphine,” director Martin Provost once again casts his sharp yet sympathetic gaze on an uncompromising woman artist profoundly at odds with the social and artistic conventions of her day. And once more, he has crafted a plum role that allows a gifted actress (Emmanuelle Devos) to show the full range of her abilities. Commercial prospects look solid for the pic’s Nov. 6 opening in Gaul (where “Seraphine” racked up 846,000 admissions), while the combination of tony literary material and handsome period craftsmanship make it a natural prospect for offshore arthouse distribs.

Provost (who also co-wrote the screenplay with “Seraphine” collaborator Marc Abdelnour and playwright/novelist Rene de Ceccatty) has done an especially fine job here of shaping Leduc’s life into a compelling cinematic narrative, focusing »

Tiff '13 to Focus on Oscar Material: Movie Line-Up

23 July 2013 12:21 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Toronto Film Festival 2013 Dates and Movies (photo: Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson in ‘The Love Punch’) The Toronto Film Festival 2013 dates are September 5 to 15. The Opening Night Gala film is Bill Condon’s bound-to-be-controversial The Fifth Estate, which is not a belated sequel to Serge Leroy’s The Fourth Power / Le 4ème pouvoir. Instead of the Power of the Press — which seems to have gone the way of the 20th century (unless you consider the Royal Baby an epoch-making event) — The Fifth Estate is about the Power of Technology: the Wikileaks scandal that embarrassed (and infuriated) the U.S. government and military by exposing their dirty dealings. Written by Josh Singer, The Fifth Estate stars Star Trek Into DarknessBenedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange, in addition to Laura Linney, Daniel Brühl, Anthony Mackie, Moritz Bleibtreu, Peter Capaldi, David Thewlis, Alicia Vikander, Carice van Houten, Stanley Tucci, and Dan Stevens.

Emmanuelle Devos and Jerome Bonnell talk about Just A Sigh

18 May 2013 4:52 AM, PDT | eyeforfilm.co.uk | See recent eyeforfilm.co.uk news »

In Jérôme Bonnell's engaging Just A Sigh, the lovely Emmanuelle Devos plays actress Alix, who catches the eye of a stranger on a train to Paris, played by Gabriel Byrne (as a combination of the mysterious and the tangible), and decides to follow up on the first alluring glances.

Escape from everyday life becomes a tempting promise, while the characters overcome sheepishness and shame. During the Tribeca Film Festival, I had a conversation with Devos and director Bonnell (who previously collaborated on Waiting for Someone (J'attends quelqu'un) in 2007), about not performing Ibsen, not casting an actor to look like Michael Haneke, the invisible stars of Jean Eustache and Quentin Tarantino, and not being aware that Alice and Snow White can inhabit the same Paris Wonderland.

Anne-Katrin Titze: Theatre is obviously very important. The opening sequence reminded me of The Place Beyond the Pines. »

Casting Net: Jessica Chastain in talks to join Christopher Nolan's 'Interstellar', more

2 May 2013 6:39 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) is reportedly in talks to join Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight Rises) time-travel epic, Interstellar. She’d be joining a cast that currently includes Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey. Since she’s started getting more significant roles, Chastain has never really ventured into pure science fiction territory (we’re not counting Take Shelter). She famously dropped out of Oblivion when offered the Zero Dark Thirty role, so we’re excited for her to take on a new kind of film. The two-time Oscar nominee (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty) is currently filming Liv Ullmann »

Tribeca Review: Featherweight 'Just A Sigh' A Wayward Romance That Immediately Fades From Memory

25 April 2013 3:40 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Some of us are floating in the water, waiting for that big wave that we can ride, one that will let us surf to another place where the water’s warmer, less choppy, and in some cases, soaked with less tourist piss (which may or may not be part of the metaphor). One of these people is Alix (Emmanuelle Devos) of “Just a Sigh,” a working actress still stuck in a holding pattern. Now in her forties, she clutches her cellphone, praying for a call from a sometime-boyfriend. What we learn of this man suggests whatever feelings that exist may not be mutual, and while Alix tells a girlfriend that she’s going to visit him, suggesting that she may try to establish their relationship face-to-face, the defensive way that Alix expresses herself suggests she’s tried this before. With time off because of a power failure at the theater, »

Jérôme Bonnell and Emmanuelle Devos. Picture by Anne-Katrin Titze.

Emmanuelle Devos, the brilliant star of Jérôme Bonnell's intriguing Just A Sigh (Le Temps De L'Aventure) graced the red carpet with her director for their Tribeca Film Festival premiere at the Sva Theatre in Chelsea last night. Yasujiro Ozu turns into Hitchcock's Spellbound, Stage Fright, and "why not" Strangers On A Train - to how important it is to Devos to choose the proper clothes.

Anne-Katrin Titze: There are a lot of characters in your film who don't make an appearance but are very important for the story. Was is clear to you who wouldn't show up? You trick the audience's curiosity.

Jérôme Bonnell: Because I think cinema is to hide, before it is to show things.

Akt: I was thinking of Ozu in this context. The fiances whom we never see, etc.

Jb: I never thought of him but thank you so much. »
