Review: Pascale Ferran's 'Bird People' Starring Josh Charles, Anais Demoustier And Radha Mitchell

8 September 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At some point or another, every major international filmmaker gets the itch to broaden their audience and work with big (or biggish) names for a film that, at least in part, is in the English language. The latest director to experiment away from their native tongue is Pascal Ferran, who made a splash eight years ago with her three-hour French adaptation of D.H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley." "Bird People," which is in large part in English, and features a number of recognizable faces, including Josh Charles, Radha Mitchell and "The Wire" actor (and director) Clark Johnson, has its vocal champions here in Cannes, but we were legitimately puzzled by the film, which combines a drab, enervating English-language first half with a better, but still not entirely successful, second that marks a major departure from what's come before. After a brief prologue in which Ferran delves into the thoughts of passengers on a train, »

Felony director's new film secures funding

5 September 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

A week after his film Felony launched into Australian cinemas, Screen Australia has revealed that it is investing production funding in director Matt Saville’s third feature.

Comedy A Month of Sundays will be the next film from the production arm of distributor Madman.

Madman executive Nick Batzias is producing with Kirsty Stark, who worked with the company on the series Wastelander Panda.

While Felony was not written by Saville – lead actor Joel Edgerton was the writer – he will direct A Month of Sundays from his own script, which draws on personal experience: his father was a real estate agent and so is this film’s lead character, to be played by Anthony Lapaglia.

Screen Australia also confirmed that it is supporting Looking For Grace, in which Radha Mitchell and Richard Roxburgh play the on-screen mother and father of newcomer Odessa Young.

The fourth film director Sue Brooks (Japanese Story) is now in its second week of »

Radha Mitchell plays Lizzie, a woman who has been trying to conceive a child with her husband for years and has almost given up hope.

Expecting is advertised as a comedy drama, a comedrama? A dramedy? I am not sure that either of those words exist but I would definitely say that it is more drama than comedy. The moments that made me »

Cannes 2014: ‘Bird People’ one of the most mysteriously unique films out of Cannes

5 June 2014 10:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bird People

Written by Guillaume Bréaud and Pascale Ferran

Directed by Pascale Ferran

France, 2014

By just the opening shots of Pascale Ferran’s Bird People, the film has established an odd perspective: the audience is privy to the inner thoughts of each character, their wandering conversations, or the music modestly playing through their headphones. It’s an act of cinematic eavesdropping, of allowing the audience to peer into the lives of even the most minor characters. In truth, however, it serves as introduction to one of the leads, Audry (Anais Demoustier), a persistent wallflower whose curiosity into the private lives of others later lends itself to a magical opportunity. It’s the sort of magic that’s genuinely unexpected in such a drama-centered story, but the sheer amount of charm exuberating from the character-driven narrative allows the story to sink into a pleasing form of magical realism.

Cannes: IFC Films in Negotiations to Acquire Josh Charles Starrer ‘Bird People’ (Exclusive)

25 May 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris– IFC Films is in advanced negotiations to acquire the rights to “Bird People,” Pascale Ferran’s Un Certain Regard player  that stars “The Good Wife’s” Josh Charles as an American business traveler with a 24-hour delay in Paris.

Paris-based Films Distribution handles international sales on the film – one of the arthouse standouts of the official selection — and is currently negotiating the sale to the U.S..

The story, set almost exclusively inside the Hilton hotel near Charles de Gaulle Airport, is what Variety critic Peter Debruge called “an unlikely Cinderella story around its magical midway point.”

Ferran, who won Cannes’ Camera d’Or for her 1994 debut, “Petits arrangements avec les morts,”  penned the screenplay of “Bird People” with Guillaume Breaud.

Pic is produced by Denis Freyd at Archipel 35, the well-established co-production company of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s “Two Days, One Night,” which played in competition.

Cannes Roundup: Gong Li in 'Coming Home,' Josh Charles in 'Bird People' and 'Alleluia'

22 May 2014 4:31 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes - The Cannes Film Festival is certainly easier than some of its North American cousins in regards to the sheer number of movies screened and how they are scheduled (two major films rarely premiere at the same time). That being said, too many 8:30am screenings and it's easy for the whole festival to get away from you a bit. With that in mind, here are three quick capsule reviews from this year's fest. "Coming Home" Over the past 15 years, master film director Zhang Yimou's work seems to have settled into two distinct styles. He's best known for visionary epics such as "Hero," "Curse of the Golden Flower" and, most recently, "The Flowers of War." Alternatively, Yimou has also crafted small, intimate dramas that rarely show any hint of his great cinematic eye. That is the Yimou audiences will experience in his new drama "Coming Home," starring longtime muse »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Bird People’

19 May 2014 9:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Set in the most romantic city on earth yet almost entirely confined to a Hilton hotel adjacent to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport, Pascale Ferran’s “Bird People” reveals itself as an unlikely Cinderella story around its magical midway point. Until then, the location might as well be Topeka, Kansas, considering what minimal advantage this modern-day fairy tale takes of its environs, delivering instead an almost clinical observation of the frequent-flyer life through the eyes of an American businessman and the bird-brained French maid with whom he seems destined to fall in love. After Cannes, Ferran’s curious follow-up to “Lady Chatterley” should find a comfortable nest with fests.

At first, or at least until the film’s twist, the fanciful title seems to refer to those folks who spend their lives in the air. Gary Newman (“The Good Wife’s” Josh Charles) is just such a traveler, touching down »

Jennifer Morrison Joins Kevin Bacon at ’6 Miranda Drive’

15 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Once Upon A Time star Jennifer Morrison is swapping fairy tale beasties for floorbard-creaking ghoulies as she signs up for a supernatural thriller from the writer/director of Wolf Creek. Co-starring Kevin Bacon, 6 Miranda Drive concerns a family who bring more than holiday snaps back from their vacation in the form of a chilling presence.

Morrison will play a supporting role and this should make a solid addition to her growing movie roster. About to appear with Karen Gillan in The List, she also had parts in Star Trek Into Darkness and Tom Hardy fightfest Warrior. To me she’ll always be Dr Cameron from House M.D., though she certainly deserves roles further afield. The presence of Australian horrormeister Greg McLean on script and megaphoning duties is further sign of something good, as well as a performance from fellow countrywoman Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black). Bacon has been long overdue a decent lead cinematic role, »

Jennifer Morrison Takes Up Residence at 6 Miranda Drive

14 May 2014 11:15 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Wolf Creek 2), one of my personal favorite filmmakers, heads into paranormal territory with the Blumhouse-produced 6 Miranda Drive, which has just found its latest resident. Read on!

The Wrap reports that "House M.D." and "How I Met Your Mother" star Jennifer Morrison has joined the cast of McLean's latest, which tells the tale of a family that returns home from a Grand Canyon vacation with a supernatural force in tow. Morrison will play one half of a fun-loving couple that joins the family on their summer getaway.

Feeding off their own fears, the evil presence which latches on to our heroes threatens to destroy them from within as it takes over their lives and home with terrifying results.

The flick, written and directed by McLean, stars the previously announced Kevin Bacon, Radha Mitchell, Matt Walsh, Lucy Fry and David Mazouz.
