Let’s Go to Green Gables with the New Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Anne’

7 April 2017 9:42 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s a feminist re-imagining in Netflix’s latest series.

Last Tuesday, Netflix released the first full-length trailer for their new series, Anne. Working with Canadian network CBC, the eight-episode series is an adaptation of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s early 20th century novel Anne of Green Gables. However, don’t expect this to be a word-to-screen adaptation; Anne’s showrunner and writer Moira Walley-Beckett (Breaking Bad) has said in a statement that she “wanted to chart some new territory,” admitting that the series “is not a period piece with a glossy veneer.”

For those unfamiliar with the novel off of which Anne is based, Montgomery’s work begins with the two siblings Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, played R. H. Thomson and Geraldine James in the series, who decide to adopt an orphan boy to help them with their farm, Green Gables, in the fictional town of Avonlea that’s located in Prince Edward Island, Canada »

Trailer Watch: “Anne” Can Do Anything a Boy Can Do and More

5 April 2017 7:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Amybeth McNulty in “Anne”

“My name is Anne Shirley Cuthbert, and please be sure to spell ‘Anne’ with an ‘e’,” the heroine of Netflix’s newest series requests on her first day at a new school. Even if you’ve never heard of “Anne of Green Gables” before, that one line tells you all you need to know about the outspoken, self-assured protagonist.

Based on L.M. Montgomery’s classic series of novels, “Anne” follows the imaginative and adventurous Anne Shirley (Amybeth McNulty), a young orphan, as she arrives at Prince Edward Island near the turn of the century. “After an abusive childhood spent in orphanages and the homes of strangers, [Anne] is mistakenly sent to live with an aging sister and brother,” the official synopsis reads. “Over time, 13-year-old Anne will transform the lives of Marilla (Geraldine James) and Matthew Cuthbert (R.H. Thomson) and eventually the entire small town in which they live with her unique spirit, fierce intellect, and brilliant imagination. Anne’s adventures will reflect timeless and topical issues including themes of identity, feminism, bullying, and prejudice.”

The new spot for “Anne” touches on these themes as we see the main character humiliated when a classmate tells her, “I won’t eat next to dirty trash.” But Anne can handle herself: The trailer also shows her arguing with Marilla that “girls can do anything a boy can do and more,” and smacking classmate Gilbert (“20th Century Women’s” Lucas Jade Zumann) across the face with a book after he pulls her hair.

Emmy-winner Moira Walley-Beckett (“Breaking Bad”) is “Anne’s” showrunner. She penned every episode and serves as exec producer alongside Miranda de Pencier (“Beginners”).

Niki Caro helmed the first episode of the series, while Sandra Goldbacher (“Me Without You”), Helen Shaver (“Orphan Black”), Patricia Rozema (“Into the Forest”), and Amanda Tapping (“Supernatural”) are among the series’ other directors.

“Anne” premieres on Netflix May 12.

First Trailer for War Drama 'Megan Leavey' About a Marine & Her Dog

15 March 2017 2:47 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"What would you say to Rex, if he were here?" Bleecker Street has unveiled a trailer for a film titled Megan Leavey, telling the story of Us Marine Corporal Megan Leavey, played by Kate Mara. Leavey served in Iraq in 2005 and 2006, and was assigned to "clean up" the K9 unit. There she befriended a dog named Rex, who was particularly aggressive when she first met him. She worked with him and trained him and they completed more than 100 missions together, before an Ied injured both of them. She then fought to adopt him while home recovering. It's based on a true story, which makes these even more emotional to watch. In addition to Mara, the cast includes Edie Falco, Common, Bradley Whitford, Ramon Rodriguez, and Geraldine James. As a big time dog lover, I'm so into this, doesn't even matter what the footage looks like. Here's the official trailer (+ poster »

45 Years

Andrew Haigh’s quiet, two-person relationship tale won a lot of friends last year. A revelation from the past changes everything in the marriage of Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay. We read the faces, read the gestures — just like we do in our own close relationships.

45 Years

Most filmmakers must find a way to chop down 800-page novels and still retain some semblance of the original. Others have the opposite problem, fleshing a short story to fill a feature length movie. The classic example is Ernest Hemingway’s The Killers, which is less than three thousand words in length. »

Rotterdam Film Review: ‘Daphne’

9 February 2017 8:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Did director Peter Mackie Burns and his scriptwriter, Nico Mensinga, mean to make their protagonist one of the more unpleasant characters in recent memory? Presumably not, since Daphne (Emily Beecham, “Into the Badlands”) incongruously has really nice guys falling over her, but maybe the filmmakers simply wanted to say something about how desperate heterosexual male Londoners are these days. “Daphne” tracks a misanthropic 31-year-old chef who witnesses a stabbing; audiences are meant to notice a change in her perspective after the trauma, but the movie fails to make us believe the event has had any impact, and Daphne remains almost as unappealing at the end as she was at the beginning. Sure, Beecham is good, but who wants to spend time with this woman? Sales are unlikely to make an impact.

Clearly Daphne is having a personality crisis, apparent from the start when she’s snide to an old friend »
