Most Notable Apartheid Movies: From Brando to Whoopi. Which Ones Have You Seen?

6 December 2013 7:11 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Marlon Brando in ‘A Dry White Season,’ James Earl Jones in ‘Cry the Beloved Country’: Apartheid movies (photo: Marlon Brando in ‘A Dry White Season’) (See previous post: “Nelson Mandela: Sidney Poitier and ‘Malcolm X’ Cameo Apperance.”) Besides the Nelson Mandela movies discussed in the previous two posts, South Africa’s apartheid has been portrayed in a number of films in the last few decades. Among the most notable ones are the following: Zoltan Korda’s Cry the Beloved Country (1951). Based on Alan Paton’s novel, this British-made film features Canada Lee and Charles Carson as two men struggling to deal with the disastrous consequences of apartheid. Ralph Nelson’s The Wilby Conspiracy (1975). Sidney Poitier and Michael Caine star as, respectively, an anti-apartheid South African activist and a British engineer on the run from South Africa’s secret police, headed by racist Nicol Williamson.

26 June 2013 1:41 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

FX is tapping into the movie world once again for a limited series based on the 1992 classic The Last of the Mohicans. This news comes three months after the network gave the green light for an event series based on the 1996 film Fargo.

Christopher Crowe, who wrote The Last of the Mohicans screenplay with director Michael Mann, is on board to write the pilot script, with Kerry McCluggage and Steve Beck also developing the project. The story, based on James Fenimore Cooper's 1826 novel, will explore the origins of America as a nation, as told through the author's characters.

Christopher Crowe and Kerry McCluggage are executive producing, while Steve Beck is serving as a producer.

The Last of the Mohicans, which starred Daniel Day-Lewis, Madeleine Stowe, and Russell Means, grossed $75 miillion at the domestic box office during its theatrical release in 1992.

The Last of the Mohicans was released September 25th, »

Daniel Mays to lead Jimmy McGovern BBC One drama 'Common'

22 May 2013 1:48 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Daniel Mays is to lead the cast of new BBC One drama Common.

The one-off crime thriller - from writer Jimmy McGovern (Accused, Cracker) - centres on 'joint enterprise' law and tells the tale of four men who flee a fatal stabbing.

Lead actor Mays most recently starred in ITV's BAFTA-winning drama Mrs Biggs and appears in the movie Welcome to the Punch opposite James McAvoy.

Jodhi May (The Ice Cream Girls), Robert Pugh (Game of Thrones), Nico Mirallegro (My Mad Fat Diary) and Susan Lynch (Monroe) form the rest of the Common cast.

"When it comes to casting you always have a 'wish list' - a list of actors who'd be perfect for the parts you have written," said McGovern.

"You never get them of course. They're often too busy or away on holiday or they hate the script or whatever. But on this occasion, I got them all, »

Go Film It On the Mountain: The Appalachian Mountains in Film

29 April 2013 12:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Film locations are rarely given much screen time. They are seen in a moment, establishing where the action takes place. They are no more than a beautiful backdrop, and the actual location may not be remembered. Yet there are some locations that become characters themselves on film.

Countless films have been shot on location in the Appalachian Mountains, on lush lakes, rivers, and, of course, the mountains. In a number of these films, the Mountains are integral to the story, whether their history, sheer expanse, or dramatic beauty.

 

The Fugitive, 1993

Despite the fact that Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) escapes while being transported to prison in Illinois, the famous train wreck scene was filmed on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. The remnants of the wreck still lie on Railroad property, crumpled and twisted.  The film site can be visited today, either directly or by taking the Tuckasegee River Excursion, a »

Rewind TV: Endeavour; The Ice Cream Girls; The Secret Life of Rockpools – review

20 April 2013 4:09 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The young Morse and his mentor made a perfect couple in Endeavour, but The Ice Cream Girls left our reviewer cold

Endeavour (ITV1) | ITVplayer

The Ice Cream Girls (ITV1)

The Secret Life of Rockpools (BBC4) | iPlayer

Roger Allam is perfectly suited and booted to play Di Fred Thursday, boss and mentor to the young, not yet inspector, Morse in Endeavour, ITV's prequel to the classic detective series. It's as if he were never destined to play anything else. Big, jowly, with a well-styled trenchcoat, buffed size 12s and, very presumably, a vest: he inhabits his own skin wonderfully wisely. Lugubrious to the point of torpor, he catches the mood perfectly; if it's not raining it will be soon, and there'll be another damp beer along in a minute.

As such, he's the perfect foil to Shaun Evans's Endeavour Morse. Coming into his own, he, Endeavour, quite suddenly realises he's cleverer than many, »

TV review: The Ice Cream Girls

20 April 2013 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

On ITV, flashbacks can be triggered by almost anything, finds Sam Wollaston

There's a nagging little bell going off in my head during the first of three episodes of The Ice Cream Girls (ITV), adapted from Dorothy Koomson's novel. And it's getting louder. Someone leaves prison; there's the whiff of a miscarriage of justice; a family moves to the seaside, by Volvo, for a fresh start; then Flashback! – bad shit happened in the past; now it's time for it to catch up ...

Got it! The Poison Tree, adapted from the novel by Erin Kelly, just a few months ago on the same channel. They love the old prison-Volvo-to-the-coast-flashback-novel psychological-thriller adaptation at ITV. That's not to say there's not plenty of intrigue here. Serena (Lorraine Borroughs) returns to her childhood town with her new family, to a dying mother and to terrible memories. Of a rape, a murder, and another girl, »

Ginger & Rosa Movie Review

21 March 2013 3:47 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Ginger & Rosa Director: Sally Potter Starring: Elle Fanning, Alice Englert, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks, Timothy Spall, Oliver Platt, Annette Bening, Jodhi May A tender, impressionistic coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of the Cold War in Great Britain, “Ginger & Rosa” is a colored pencil sketch of a movie distinguished by its acting — in particular young Elle Fanning, the actress at its core. Giving off the feeling of a short story, it’s not necessarily wildly revelatory, but instead small and intimately observed; in short, it’s easy to see why distributor A24 Films took a spin on an awards season limited release, to try to spotlight Fanning’s mesmeric performance. The film unfolds in  [ Read More ]

Already an incisive performance by 14-year-old Elle Fanning (13 when she performed in “Ginger & Rosa” and 10 when her career began) may be already talked about by organizations that give best-actress accolades. In a film that seems designed to capture all of Ms. Fanning’s talents, Sally Potter’s “Ginger & Rosa” could not be more fitting.
