The film was written and directed by “Big Stone Gap” author Adriana Trigiani. Patrick Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg, John Benjamin Hickey, Jane Krakowski, Anthony Lapaglia and Jenna Elfman also star.
“Big Stone Gap” was shot entirely on location in the coal-mining Virginia town of the same name, which is also Trigiani and Wilson’s hometown.
“We made not just a great movie, but a beautiful movie,” Goldberg said. “It looks lush.”
Shooting began in October 2013; Donna Gigliotti (“Shakespeare in Love”) produced with James Spies (“The Contender”). J.E. Craig and Jean Morrisey exec produced.
The first “Big Stone Gap” novel was published in 2001 followed by sequels “Big Cherry Holler,” “Milk Glass Moon” and “Home to Big Stone Gap.” The story centers on middle-aged
Everyone hates Ward’s wife and wants her dead, Ward (Donald Faison) most of all. But when his friends’ murderous fantasies turn into an (accidental) reality, they have to deal with a whole new set of problems—like how to dispose of the body and still make their 3 p.m. tee time. Scott Foley’s directorial début, also starring Foley, Patrick Wilson, Amy Acker, and Nicolette Sheridan, is a blackly comic caper about helping a friend out of a bad relationship by any means necessary.
Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife makes me feel weird inside. It is surprisingly sweet and heartfelt for a film about murdering someone and disposing of the remains. The combination of such a dark topic and
The IMDb synopsis for Jack Strong describes the film as a “gripping spy thriller” that “tells the true story of a man who dares to challenge the Soviet empire.” While it’s true that the story involves spies, soviets and men, there’s not a great that’s daring, gripping or thrilling in this meandering yet overwrought snoozefest.
The Cold War is a rich seam for stories that has quite possibly been excavated of all its jewels at this point (mainly by John le Carré and Stanley Kubrick), so a plot involving state secrets being passed from Russia-controlled Poland to the slickly-suited USA has me stifling a yawn from the opening credits on. “Jack Strong” is the codename given to the Polish colonel disenfranchised by his Communist overlords and embarks upon
In what might generously be interpreted as a sort of authorial mea culpa, Foley (“Scandal”) casts himself as the guilty party, Tom. Provoked

Coming to America in the early 1920′s was supposed to signify a new start and generate fresh cultural experiences for Polish sisters Ewa Cybulski (Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard, “La Vie en Rose”) and Magda (Angela Sarafyan) in co-writer/director James Gray’s elegant, sweeping and moody melodrama The Immigrant. Gray’s (“The Yard”, “We Own the Night”, “Little Odessa”, “Two Lovers”) character-driven expose of the American dream turned nightmarish hard knocks has some guaranteed richness in its vintage soap opera-esque sophistication.
The Immigrant echoes the lost ambitions, evasive opportunities and seedy-minded expectations of people roaming around but not quite reaching their intended destinations. Gray and his screenwriter collaborator Richard Menello create a tawdry, sullen and cluttered universe in an early turn of the century New York City where foreign visitors gravitate to Ellis Island looking to share
In James Gray's The Immigrant, Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister sail to New York from their native Poland in search of a new start and the American dream. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda (Angela Sarafyan) is ill,
The pair of actresses was among the 45,000 people who took to the streets of New York City to run the Ing NYC Marathon. This was the first time either of them had a run marathon, and they ended up raising a whole lot of money for great causes while doing it.
Aduba finished the race in 5:17:57, and thus far hasn't taken to Twitter to discuss her run now that she's finished. "Orange Is The New Black's" Crazy Eyes was running to raise money for cancer patients and ended up bringing in $3,335 for the organization Team Continuum. Her "Oitnb" costar Laura Gomez (aka Blanca Flores) tweeted to her, "A big shoutout to the lovely @UzoAduba who's
To be more accurate: Patrick Wilson himself discussed the episode on Chelsea Lately last night, saying that he found all the chatter about “One Man’s Trash” — specifically, the chorus of people incensed by the idea that someone who looks like Wilson would hook up with someone who looks like Dunham — both “awful” and “ridiculous.”
After joking that

At the height of the Cold War, the world holds its breath
A typical fan tweeted “Patrick Wilson is so hot he would never do Lena Dunham” and critics blasted the two-day sensual affair episode as unrealistic.
Wilson’s wife, Dagmara Dominczyk, couldn’t help but jump into the fray:
“Funny, his wife is a size 10, muffin top & all, and he does her just fine.”
Wilson took his sex symbol image and allowed that even the sexiest of guys might go for a less-than-glamourous girl. And he’s just one of several Emmy-worthy actors who took their guest-star roles personally and turned it into the perfect fit for their characters.
Wilson lived in the Greenpoint neighborhood, where the episode was shot, for six years. He says he frequently felt like “the old guy in the neighborhood” and the
