Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival 2016: Why Every Movie In Competition is Directed by a Woman

20 July 2016 1:52 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

This year, Michael Moore will use his Traverse City Film Festival to throw down the gauntlet for women filmmakers. The official selection — not the sidebar, not a spotlight — is comprised of 32 films, and every one is directed by a woman.

“Every film in our Official Selection (Us), fiction and nonfiction, is directed or co-directed by a woman,” Moore told IndieWire in an email. “And they’re all incredible movies. As an expression of tokenism usually reserved for women, I am bringing five films by American men in a sidebar called, ‘Men Make Movies —The Struggle Continues.'” There are other movies in the lineup directed by men, of course, whether foreign or classic.

Compiling the list took some digging, as Moore, admits in his Traverse City Film Festival welcome letter. But the results are impressive, ranging from Sundance hits (Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady’s documentary  “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, »

‘Miles Ahead’ Exclusive Featurette: Don Cheadle Commits To A Day In The Life Of Miles Davis

19 July 2016 2:54 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don Cheadle’s “Miles Ahead” follows legendary trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Miles Davis (played by Cheadle himself), one of 20th century music’s creative geniuses. In the midst of a prolific career, Davis disappears from public view in the late 1970’s. Living in isolation, he struggles with chronic pain from a deteriorating hip, a voice inhibited by drugs and alcohol, and traumatic memories from his troubled past. One day, music reporter Dave Braden (Ewan McGregor) forces his way into Davis’ house and the two men embark on an adventure to recover a stolen tape recording of Davis’ most recent compositions. The film also stars Emayatzy Corinealdi (“Middle of Nowhere”), Michael Stuhlbarg (“A Serious Man”) Keith Stanfield (“Selma”), Austin Lyon (“The Diary of a Teenage Girl”), and more. Watch an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette from the film below that discusses Cheadle’s commitment to the role.

15 July 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar Isaac is joining forces with Steven Spielberg. The “Star Wars” and “X-Men” actor is currently in talks to star in the director’s “The Kidnapping of Edgardo Montara” for Amblin Entertainment.

Isaac will star opposite Oscar-winner Mark Rylance, a Spielberg favorite recently (“Bridge of Spies,” “The Bfg”), in the religious drama. Spielberg would shoot “Edgardo” in the first quarter of 2017 after he finishes “Ready Player One.”

Tony Kushner is adapting the script based on David Kertzer’s novel.

“Edgardo Montara” tells the story of a young Jewish boy in Bologna, Italy in 1858 who, having been secretly baptized, is forcibly taken from his family to be raised as a Christian. His parents’ struggle to free their son becomes part of a larger political battle that pits the Papacy against forces of democracy and Italian unification.

Isaac’s role in the film, produced by Marc Platt and Kristie Macosko Krieger, isn’t known. »

Film Review: ‘Bobby Sands: 66 Days’

19 May 2016 10:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A terminal hunger strike that caught the world’s attention — and arguably helped shift the struggle for Irish independence away from terroristic violence — is recapped in “Bobby Sands: 66 Days.” Veteran documentarian Brendan J. Bryne’s feature does an excellent job contextualizing this famous chapter for viewers not already steeped in modern Irish history. He also accentuates the drama of events to create what many may find a more engrossing (as well as complexly balanced) treatment than Steve McQueen’s 2008 “Hunger,” which had Michael Fassbender as Sands. It should prove a viable niche theatrical release in select territories, with slightly wider home-format exposure to follow.

Sands was 27 when he died on May 5, 1981 after refusing food for the titular 66 days. He was radicalized by the rise in Northern Ireland sectarian tension and violence during his youth, which had driven his own Catholic family from their home. At age 18 in 1972 he joined the Provisional Ira, »
