With the play Thérèse Raquin, Broadway has welcomed not only a new star to its firmament — the radiant Keira Knightley — but also an ingenious feat of theatrical magic via a shimmering sliver of water. This central presence of water onstage creates an intoxicating atmosphere for the audience as they watch this beautifully modern adaptation by Helen Edmundson of Émile Zola’s tale of love, lust, betrayal, and guilt.Although set in 19th-century French society, Thérèse Raquin is not your typical, stuffy period drama. It’s initially the story of a young woman who submits to a loveless life with a selfish husband and controlling mother-in-law. But the show deepens when Knightley’s title character meets her husband's childhood friend, and a boat ride on the river Seine turns violent. Expressive of Thérèse’s emotional state, the set designed by Beowulf Boritt uses color, light, and scale to craft a space »
Keira Knightley is best known for playing whip-smart leading ladies in period pieces, and it turns out she is just as quotable as the famous characters she inhabits on screen. Whether she's talking about feminism, love, her daughter, Edie, or working in Hollywood, Keira always has something insightful and interesting to say. Keep reading for a few of Keira's best quotes, and then be sure to check out more inspiring words of wisdom from young women in Hollywood. »

Could acoustic lightening strike twice? 2006 was a mythical, magical year for John Carney when Once took the Sundance Film Festival and film world by storm. With buffer items Zonad (2009) and The Rafters (2012) only whetting our appetite for another Carney gem, 2013’s surprise box office indie hit Begin Again (with Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine) sort of got us back in the saddle. We now come full circle back to another micro film with potentially lots of heart. Considered a cousin to Once, Carney enlists U2’s Bono and The Edge for the this when Irish eyes are smiling coming-of-ager romance. Currently in the midst of a certain restructuring, the Weinsteins picked up Sing Street in at the Cannes Film Fest in 2014 and it was kept off the 2015 slate. Could this semi-biographical tale be tuned up as a crowd-pleasing Park City item?

The first time most of us saw Saoirse Ronan was in Joe Wright's British period war drama"Atonement," as the little girl who gets her sexy older sister (Keira Knightley) into a heap of trouble. It's been seven years since Ronan earned her first and only Oscar nomination. Since then she played a trained assassin in Wright's "Hanna," and acted for directors Peter Jackson ("The Lovely Bones"), Gillian Armstrong ("Death Defying Acts"), Peter Weir ("The Way Back"), Kevin Macdonald ("How I Live Now") and Wes Anderson ("The Grand Budapest Hotel"). When she inevitably returns to the Academy Awards, she'll be a young woman. In a way the movie version of Colm Tóibín's book "Brooklyn," nurtured for years by writer Nick Hornby, has been waiting for Ronan to grow up. She's now 21. When we talked about her growth as an actress, Ronan admitted that she has gained confidence—from. »

Following previous success with the short film genre, three fashion brands are kicking off the holidays by debuting even more extensive cinematic campaigns — featuring intricate storylines and serious talent.
In the latest installment of Kate Spade New York’s “Missadventure” series, brand partner Anna Kendrick finds herself vying for a Town Car on a wintery New York City night with “Girls” actress Zosia Mamet. “We chose to pair Zosia with Anna because there was a wonderful harmony,” says the film’s director, Marielle Heller, who also helmed 2015 feature film “The Diary of a Teenage Girl.” “We thought that while they share the qualities that make someone a Kate Spade New York girl — intelligence, charm, individuality and curiosity — their personal styles could be authentically distinct, and yet complementary.”
That the actresses had never met was important to Heller, whose sassy holiday short “The Joy Ride,” released in early November, portrays a »

"I don't think my career will ever get better than it was in my late teens, early twenties," said 30-year old, new mother Knightley, "but as a person, you're changing so much and you're trying to figure stuff out.

As part of a new series in which we offer careers advice to people in the movie business, here is how the once-prodigal British director should once again be seen as a gold standard
You made your name as a director with smart, capable literary adaptations: Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice in 2005, Ian McEwan’s Atonement in 2007, again with Keira Knightley. Those epic scenes on the beach at Dunkirk in 1940 were marvellous. There was also your flawed but perfectly decent Anna Karenina in 2012, adapted by Tom Stoppard, and once more with Knightley. This was lucid, elegant and stylish work and you were at your best developing material from the very best screenwriters and working sympathetically with a great female lead and showcasing her star quality. Above all else, it was film-making honestly aimed at grownups.

One of the biggest contenders for Best Actress at the Academy Awards this year is Saoirse Ronan for her performance in Brooklyn. Helping her make the case for an Oscar in a big way is the 19th annual Hollywood Film Awards, which will be honoring her with the New Hollywood Award. This is a very prestigious citation, one that will surely help her in the Actress race with Academy voters. She’s outstanding in Brooklyn and has been impressing for years already, so Ronan very much deserves this honor. With the precursor season basically upon us, I strongly suspect that it won’t be the only one that she receives before Oscar nominations are announced… Here’s part of the press release once again announcing this honor: dick clark productions announced today that Academy Award-nominated actress Saoirse Ronan will receive the “New Hollywood Award” for Brooklyn.

Keira Knightley says she has been approached at least three times to play Thérèse Raquin in one or another adaptation of the 1867 Zola novel. She finally succumbed when offered Helen Edmundson’s version, figuring there must be a reason everyone imagined her in the role of an orphan turned adulteress turned accomplice to murder. That reason is evident in the Roundabout production that opened tonight at Studio 54, in which Knightley, well known from films including Bend It Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean, makes a stark and somewhat counterintuitive Broadway debut. She is compelling and articulate, especially when silent, and brings to the morose tale the banked-fire quality that seems to illuminate such material from within. Which is a good thing, since it isn’t much illuminated from without.That’s no one’s fault, really, unless it’s Zola’s; he saw himself as a kind of literary chemist, »

Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game, the upcoming The Emperor’s Children) is making her Broadway debut in Thérèse Raquin, and not since Donna Reed donned spectacles and pulled her hair back in a tight bun as a spinster librarian in It’s A Wonderful Life has so much effort gone into draining all the sex from a sexy star. It worked: Helen Edmundson’s new adaptation of the 1867 Émile Zola novel (and, six years later, play) of illicit passion and its consequences is Doa… »
It is a truth universally acknowledged that, while streaming services make it incredibly easy to see movies and television shows, they also make it impossibly difficult to watch one. There are thousands upon thousands of titles available at your fingertips (and more being added every month), but the sheer number of things to choose from is so paralyzing that every night inevitably ends the same way: with that episode of Friends where Ross' loses his monkey.
Fortunately for you, Rolling Stone is here to help. Every month, we sift through »
This week, Neil Calloway looks at why more actors than ever are promoting products…
The imminent release of the new Bond film, means we can expect a few things; exotic locations, impressive stunts, thinly veiled misogyny and, perhaps most importantly, lucrative commercial tie ins.
If you’ve been to the cinema in Britain recently, or even just passed a bus stop, you’ll probably have seen Naomie Harris advertising the new Sony Xperia Z5. If you’ve opened a broadsheet, you’ll have seen Daniel Craig endorsing Omega watches. It’s standard procedure for Bond films; brands get to be associated with an iconic film series, and the studios get the latest products, and a huge chunk of cash to fun their films. You won’t see it in the UK, but Daniel Craig appears in Heineken adverts in the Us; they paid £28 million to appear in Skyfall, so it »
