Among the semi-finalists, topics and characters include African child soldiers (That Wasn’t Me), a troubled Italian boy who refuses to take off a wrestler’s mask (Tiger Boy), romance and time travel (Sundance entry Record/Play, slated to become a feature), an abused Inuit wife (Throat Song), and a (possible) lunatic who believes he’s god (The Voorman Problem). One hundred and twenty shorts had originally qualified for the Best Live Action Short Film category. The 10 short films still in contention for the 2014 Oscar in the Best Live Action Short Film category are listed below in alphabetical order by title, with their production companies: Aquel No Era Yo (That Wasn’t Me), Esteban Crespo, »

One of the most confounding things about following the non-marquee categories at the Oscars is that not every category operates by the same rules. For example they released the super long eligibility list for Best Documentary Feature but not the super long eligibility lists for the live action shorts. To further complicate matters, this doesn't seem to be the same strategy each year.
Tim recently shared the finalist list for Best Animated Short nominations and now we have the ten Live Action hopefuls from which Academy members will nominate three to five. I personally hate it when categories have a fluctuating amount of nominees. Commit AMPAS! There's no excuse for it really in short films since there are thousands made each year and certainly at least 5 of them would have to be great.

Ralph Fiennes follows up his modern Shakespeare adaptation and directorial debut, Coriolanus, with a look at the latter life of legendary author Charles Dickens. Fiennes directs and leads The Invisible Women, a biopic of the famed Brit novelist centred on his secret love affair with mistress Nelly Ternan.
The Invisible Women is slated (perhaps appropriately given Dickens’ seasonal work, A Christmas Carol) for Us cinemas on 25th December and the UK on the 7th February.

The film has been very well received by critics since its Telluride and Toronto debuts, and has been continuing on the festival circuit in recent months – you can read our review from the Lff here – building momentum nicely in the run-up to the Oscars.
With its release on our shores on the horizon, Lionsgate has launched a beautiful new quad poster, and a terrific new trailer to go along with it.

Ralph Fiennes' first film as director was an grimy, gritty version of Shakespeare's Coriolanus. As his follow-up, he has looked to another literary master in the shape of Charles Dickens, but this time he's focusing on the writer himself rather than one of his books in a story of Dickens' secret mistress, Nelly Ternan. Take a look at the new trailer. brightcove.createExperiences();The film finds Dickens (Fiennes himself) already at the height of his fame and with a considerable fortune, married to Catherine (Joanna Scanlan) and raising a brood of children. But when he meets Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones), they strike up an affair - despite the frenzy of publicity that surrounds the wildly popular author wherever he goes. Hiding the affair from all but their closest friends - including Wilkie Collins (Tom Hollander) - and her mother (Kristin Scott Thomas), Dickens and Ternan try to make the best of a twisted situation. »
Comedy partner reveals how he coped with his friend's death
"It's just very weird this year because Mel died quite shockingly early," he said. "So it's like unfinished business, in a funny way. You think, 'Wow, gosh, wait a minute'. For years, we used to get together and do stuff every now and again, and you think, 'You can't do that Mel, that's just...' What am I supposed to do now?"
Jones turned 60 on Saturday. Although he has done some comedy on his own, such as last year's The One and Only Griff Rhys Jones for BBC1, he said: "That was a rather strange thing as well, because Mel had been a bit ill when he turned up to do that. I regret we didn't do it together. »

By far one of the finest films I’ve seen all year, Ralph Fiennes’ The Invisible Woman is coming in as a strong contender in this year’s wide-open awards season, and after dazzling on the festival circuit in recent months, it will soon be heading into cinemas stateside over the very busy Christmas period.
Fiennes is absolutely fantastic in the male lead as Charles Dickens, and the chemistry that he and Felicity Jones share on screen is electric, with both very much worthy of Best Actor/Actress nods come January.
The film marks Fiennes’ sophomore feature in the director’s chair, and we’ve seen little from it since the first trailer launched last month. But now Sony Classics has released a handful of great new images, teasing a look at what is arguably the best period drama of the year.

Time to make another trip to movie “rom-com” land once more. Now let’s keep a stiff upper lip, since it’s set in jolly ole’ England, which as Roger Miller’s song says “swing like a pendulum do”! Okay, what are they offering across the pond? Seems they’ve tossed a big dollop of fantasy into the mix, namely time travel! Well that’s been used before in an effort to get couples together, from the McFly saga to Time After Time and Kate And Leopold. What if I tell you this new flick is from Richard Curtis the droll, witty writer behind Notting Hill and Four Weddings And A Funeral. Oh, and this is his third directorial effort after Pirate Radio and the cult classic Love Actually. Hopefully that will pique your interest. Enough background info, let’s talk about his latest. Hey, it’s About Time.

Before Jerusalem, a 24-year-old Jez Butterworth electrified British theatre with a swaggering story of pill-popping Soho gangsters. Nearly two decades on, he tells Ryan Gilbey why it's time to put it back on the jukebox
Theatrical monster hits of recent years don't come much bigger than Jerusalem, which bounced from the Royal Court to the West End and on to Broadway, scooping awards and prompting all-night camp-outs for tickets. But more than a decade earlier, Jerusalem's writer, Jez Butterworth, and director, Ian Rickson, had launched another stage phenomenon at the Royal Court.
The rock'n'roll thriller Mojo, Butterworth's first play, was set amid the pill-popping frenzy of 1950s Soho where two gangland bosses are locked in a power struggle over the pretty young heartthrob Silver Johnny. The reviews were glowing: this paper's Michael Billington called it "the most dazzling main-stage debut in years", while the Telegraph's Charles Spencer said of the »

From Aristotle to Einstein to Hawking, much debate has occurred over the structure of time and the possibility of time travel. If time travel were possible, where would you go? More importantly, how do you prevent the paradox of destroying your own identities -- or the worse fate of your own existence and others -- in the process?
The most widely talked-about moments in time to change often leads to an assassination of Hitler or saving of the Titanic. But a more personal use drives the time-travel paradigm in the romantic comedy About Time by writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Notting Hill). On his twenty-first birthday, lovelorn Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) receives extraordinary news of a special gift shared by his father (Bill Nighy). The men in their family have the ability to travel through time within their own lives -- "You can't kill Hitler or shag Helen of Troy »

Presumably somewhere out there are people writing serious contemporary dramas that do not feature the maiming and murder of women. Good luck to them, you have to say, because what chance does their work stand of ever seeing the green light of commission?
Nowadays everything from highly crafted series – The Tunnel and The Fall – to the ropiest ITV three-parters are stuffed full of imperilled females and butchered corpses. And lovely interiors.
This is the modern vision of urban angst, all sleek design inside and outside a homicidal psychopath trying to get in. The basic formula to which so much television drama can now be reduced is mutilation plus decoration. It's as if the only way to break through the »
