Harrison Ford injured in plane accident (image: Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff in 'Ender's Game') Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark actor Harrison Ford was supposed to be in critical condition – later reports have upgraded that to "fair" or "stable" condition – following an accident with a small airplane on Los Angeles' Westside. Earlier this afternoon (March 5, 2015), a vintage, one-engine two-seater crash landed at the Penmar Golf Course, located in the Los Angeles suburb of Venice, not far from the Pacific Ocean and just west of Santa Monica Airport. Its pilot, 72-year-old Harrison Ford, was found "seriously" injured. He was alone on the plane. There were no injuries on the ground. As explained in the Los Angeles Times, "fire officials would not identify the victim of the crash but said he was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived." Ford was later transported to an unidentified hospital. Eleven »

Radiator wins inaugural Glasgow award

2 March 2015 2:49 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Tom Browne’s feature debut wins first Audience Award; 40,000 admissions for second year in a row.

Radiator has won the inaugural Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival (Gff), which wrapped its 11th edition last night with the UK premiere of Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure.

Tom Browne’s feature debut Radiator stars Richard Johnson and Gemma Jones as elderly hoarders whose middle-aged son arrives from London to take control.

Browne, Johnson and Jones were among the guests who attended this year’s festival.

Browne commented: “Radiator has an unfashionable theme and was made on a tiny budget. Unsurprisingly it is taking a while for the film to find a place within the film industry so to receive this award is very significant for Radiator’s future.”

Speaking at the closing gala, Gff co-director Allan Hunter noted that “the audience have spoken and we trust that British distributors will listen”.

Over 1,100 votes were cast for the Audience »

The Definitive Movies of 1995

30. Sense and Sensibility

Directed by: Ang Lee

Ang Lee has gone in about eight different directions in terms of genre. His resume includes “The Ice Storm,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” Hulk,” “Brokeback Mountain,” “Life of Pi,” and this delightful Jane Austen adaptation, starring Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and young Kate Winslet. “Sense and Sensibility” took home the Oscar for Adapted Screenplay for the story of the Dashwood family, a mother widowed and left in difficult circumstances after her husband has left his fortune to his first wife, instead of his current one. So Mrs. Dashwood (Gemma Jones) and her daughters Fanny, Marianne, and Elinor (Harriet Walter, Winslet, Thompson) have to find a way to survive in a world ruled by men and the rules that seem to create obstacle after obstacle for them. Unfortunately, given the era, they are viewed as “unmarryable,” since they have no fortune and no prospects. »
