Tribeca: Jason Sudeikis on How and When to Improv in a Movie

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Meet the 2015 Tribeca Filmmakers #54 : Sean Mewshaw Tackles Small-Town Grief in 'Tumbledown' With his dark beard and deep, rich voice, Jason Sudeikis is a powerful embodiment of 21st century masculinity, which makes you wonder why it took him so long to land plump romantic roles. The wait, it seems, was worth it. Sudeikis, who has had leading roles in a wide range of television and film comedies over the past decade — from "Saturday Night Live" to "30 Rock" and "We're the Millers" to "Horrible Bosses" — stars opposite Rebecca Hall in "Tumbledown," a romantic comedy from the married writer/director duo Desi Van Til and Sean Mewshaw, set in rural Maine. The film derives inspiration from the stories of brilliant real-life singer-songwriters like Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley whose lives were cut short too soon. Hall plays the grieving widow of a famous folk singer who decides to hire Sudeikis'. »

Tribeca Review: 'Tumbledown' Starring Rebecca Hall And Jason Sudeikis

21 April 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s never explicitly stated that Hunter Miles is a member of the 27 Club, but that hasn’t stopped the folk musician (“folk” in terms of both his hero status and his particular brand of strummy rock) from getting grouped with other musicians who left this world too soon. The character at the heart of Sean Mewshaw’s “Tumbledown” is already dead and buried by the time the film opens – in fact, we visit his grave quite frequently, much like his many fans – but his specter looms over the entire feature, as does his cut-short legacy. A moody (maybe? or is that simply how a rocker of his ilk is perceived by the public?) singer/songwriter in the vein of Bon Iver and Elliott Smith, Hunter crafted exactly one solo album (one “perfect” album, as one character observes) before dying in an apparently freak hiking accident. He also left behind »

Read More: Meet the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Filmmakers Years after the accidental death of her folk-legend songwriter husband Hunter, Hannah (Rebecca Hall) has yet to fully accept her small-town life in Maine without him. She spends her days contemplating a book she'd like to write on Hunter's life and work, and indulging in a fling with a local meathead (Joe Manganiello). But when she is approached by brash New York academic Andrew (Jason Sudeikis), intent on penning his own biography of her late husband, Hannah is roused into action. Initially wary of his intentions she decides to collaborate with him on the book, leading them both to surprising discoveries. As Hannah and Andrew dig deeper into Hunter's life and death, they come to their own revelations about what it means to live, and to love. Featuring supporting performances by Dianna Agron, Blythe Danner, Griffin Dunne, and Richard Masur, "Tumbledown" is »

Tribeca 2015: Jason Sudeikis, Rebecca Hall Fete Their Oblique Rom-Com 'Tumbledown'

19 April 2015 12:02 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In Tumbledown, Rebecca Hall plays a young woman struggling to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed folk singer. On the surface, the film doesn’t appear to be the most lighthearted fare, but Hall read it as a welcome relief. "I had just done a very heavy theatrical piece that involved me getting in the electric chair seven nights a week,” she told The Hollywood Reporter on the red carpet before the film’s world premiere during the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday. "I was looking for something funny." [gallery:789090] Which isn’t to say that

''Together with them and Disney, there are many reasons why I am so excited about this joint venture.'' Meanwhile, Spielberg »

Jemaine Clement Joins Steven Spielberg's The Bfg

13 April 2015 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Because he sometimes enjoys finishing one movie while starting another (see Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List), Steven Spielberg is kicking off work on Roald Dahl adaptation The Bfg even as he puts the final touches to Cold War thriller Bridge Of Spies. He’s now added Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton and Rebecca Hall to the cast. And they’re not the only new additions, as David Adamthwaite, Daniel Bacon, Chris Gibbs, Adam Godley, Jonathan Holmes, Paul Moniz de Sa and Olafur Olafsson have all been hired to join Mark Rylance’s titular character, Ruby Barnhill as young heroine Sophie and Bill Hader, who is playing one of the less charming giants. While most of the other roles remain cloaked in mystery we do know that Wilton will be the Queen and Hall her maid. Royal Wilton: admit it, you knew it was headed that way.Adapted by E.T.’s »

Misinterpreted Film: The Prestige

13 April 2015 3:27 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The Prestige is about magicians, who specialize in tricking the mind as a form of entertainment. Like it’s subject matter, the film itself fittingly accomplishes the same thing. Join us as we discuss the subtle complications of this intriguing film and how they are often misunderstood by general audiences.  

Not every movie is meant to be a form of mind-numbing entertainment. Sometimes things get complicated. Christopher Nolan's The Prestige is one of these movies. Not only is the subject matter itself tricky, but the way the story is told and the way characters are developed is not straight-forward. The Prestige is one of those films which allows the audience to come up with their own conclusions about the events that take place. While this leaves much of the importance of the film open to interpretation based on personal perspective, it also provides an opportunity for misunderstanding. This article »
