Tomato Red review – Ozarks lowlife drama a little too beautiful for its own good

14 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Adapted from a novel by Daniel Woodrell, this film about a man who falls in love with a crimson-haired girl he meets in a bar doesn’t quite match its source

Here’s that rare thing: an adaptation of a Daniel Woodrell novel that doesn’t live up to the source material. Woodrell’s work, focused almost exclusively on the challenges of working-class life in the mountainous American Ozarks, has previously provided the source material for two fine films: Ang Lee’s historical drama Ride With The Devil and the Oscar-nominated Winter’s Bone. But Tomato Red (adapted from the 1998 novel of the same name) to do justice to Woodrell’s austere vision. Jake Weary stars as Sammy Barlach, an ex-con who spends his time drifting through various dead-end jobs and drinking himself into a stupor.

Season 2 Of The Girlfriend Experience Will Feature Parallel Storylines; Anna Friel And More Fill Out Cast

26 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a risqué anthology series loosely based on Steven Soderbergh’s 2009 film of the same name, The Girlfriend Experience took many by surprise when it premiered on Starz early last year.

Anchored by a fierce, nuanced performance from Riley Keough, Soderbergh’s limited series was lauded with praise for its engrossing depiction of intimacy and sexual relationships and the underlying power struggles they birth. A second season was fast-tracked into development and now, almost a year on from the show’s premiere, The Girlfriend Experience is gearing up for its return. And this time, Riley Keough has company.

Deadline is reporting that Anna Friel, Louisa Krause and Fantastic Beasts star Carmen Ejogo have all climbed aboard Starz’ escort drama, which will feature parallel storylines in its sophomore run. Before delving into timelines, it should be noted that Anna Friel will portray Erica Myles in The Girlfriend Experience, with Louisa Krause »
