"Did you know you can win medals for maths?" Yes, over in the United Kingdom, the subject is called "maths," and that's exactly what Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game) does to help him connect to a world he doesn't quite understand as a high-functioning autistic boy in the drama X+Y. Though it does have some hints of cheesiness and melodrama, there's a great supporting cast here that includes Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan, seemingly elevating this to a genuinely inspirational story. It looks charming and and uplifting, and we hope it gets a release here in the United States next year. Watch below! Here's the new UK trailer for Morgan Matthews' X+Y from The Telegraph (via The Playlist): Watch the first trailer for Morgan Matthews' X+Y from the Tiff premiere right here. X+Y is directed by Morgan Matthews, a TV and documentary filmmaker of past, »

Asa Butterfield’s character doesn’t say much in this new trailer for X+Y, but he still manages to get you to root for him. Butterfield leads Morgan Matthews’ fiction feature directorial debut as Nathan, a math prodigy who’s diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. It isn’t until Nathan scores a spot on Great Britain’s team at the International Mathematics Olympiad where his abilities are celebrated that he comes to realize that he isn’t as weird as he once thought. This one didn’t get all that much attention at the Toronto International Film Festival, but anything I did read about it noted the film’s feel-good, rousing nature and those qualities are certainly present in this promo. Hit the jump to check out the new X+Y trailer. Unfortunately the film doesn’t have a Us release date just yet, but folks in »

Still Life screens at 6:55pm Saturday November 22nd at the Plaza Frontenac Theater as part of the St. Louis International Film Festival
Review by Dana Jung.
In art and photography, the term “still life” refers to a picture of inanimate objects frozen in time. There is no story, no sense of who the objects may belong to, or where they came from, or what may happen to them next. They are just there, possibly never having any human contact at all. The wonderful new film Still Life takes the concept of things seemingly without purpose or meaning, and creates a stirring portrait surprisingly full of emotional depth.
John (Eddie Marsan) is a dedicated civil servant whose job it is to arrange the funeral services for those poor souls who die alone, without immediate family or even friends to say final farewells to them. John is very thorough in his work, »

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

Eddie Marsan and Bertie Carvel look very English and slightly magical in the first image from BBC America's new original drama series, "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell," based on Susanna Clarke's bestselling historical fantasy novel. The seven-part series stars Marsan ("Ray Donovan") and Carvel ("Restless") as Gilbert Norrell and Jonathan Strange, two 19th century men who bring magic back to England after it has lain dormant for decades.
