‘The Missing’ Star David Morrissey on Playing a Father Dealing With a Parent’s Worst Nightmare

12 February 2017 9:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[This post contains plot details for the first episode of “The Missing” Season 2.]

Starz’s “The Missing” returned for Season 2 with another story about kidnapping — except that in the first few minutes, Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), lost for 11 years, stumbles back into the small German town she disappeared from. That is the beginning of a time-shifting story about how resolution does not mitigate loss — and how long-buried traumas can unearth in surprising and terrifying ways.

In quite a genre shift from his role as the Governor in “The Walking Dead,” David Morrissey plays Sam Webster, a captain in the British army whose turn of duty at a German base becomes an exile of bereavement when his daughter Alice goes missing. In the intervening years, Sam and his wife Gemma (Keeley Hawes) have made the town their home, building new lives around their loss. When Alice returns, the bereaved couple have to start over again. Sam in particular is altered — there are burn scars all over one side of his body »

IndieWire’s Movie Podcast: Screen Talk (Episode 135) – Everyone Loves Isabelle Huppert

10 February 2017 6:59 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For months now, we’ve been talking about the same three movies leading the Oscar race — “La La Land,” “Moonlight” and “Manchester By the Sea” — but there are other recurring names in different categories, and none has been more fascinating to watch than Isabelle Huppert.

While Paul Verhoeven’s provocative “Elle” wasn’t an easy sell for everyone, and didn’t even make the Oscar shortlist in the foreign language category, Huppert’s domineering performance as a rape survivor who tracks down her assailant reminded moviegoers around the world why she’s such an icon of contemporary cinema. Even as Emma Stone maintains serious traction for best actress for her “La La Land” performance, Huppert has a serious shot of taking the prize. How do we explain her ongoing momentum?

That’s the starting point for this week’s episode of Screen Talk, in which Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson »

‘The Missing’ Review: Season 2 Reverses the Classic Kidnapping Narrative to Compelling New Ends

10 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Dramas focusing on a kidnapping — especially of young children — typically follow a simple trajectory: The family is introduced. The child is taken. The family is torn apart. A detective saves the day (or, at least, finds answers), and a happy ending or haunting lesson is imparted to the audience.

Typically, there’s a guessing game involved, as a number of suspicious supporting characters pop up throughout the story, and the audience is invited to solve the mystery. Their reward is being right or being surprised, but what typically elevates some kidnapping dramas above the rest is what elevates any drama: formal elements — directing, writing, acting — that build upon an audience’s immediate empathy for the taken child and the tormented family.

‘The Missing’ Season 2 Review: David Morrissey-Starring Anthology Is Gripping TV

9 February 2017 4:59 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The second installment of The Missing is emotionally gripping television full of twists, and starts where you think it would end. As I say in my video review above, the eight-episode Starz-bbc series that debuts February 12 takes you to some very unexpected places and is very much worth watching. In many ways, that is almost all I really want to say about the latest version of the anthology series starring David Morrissey, Keeley Hawes, Laura Fraser, Roger Allam, Jack… »

Last Week’S Podcast: ‘Superior Donuts’ Star Jermaine Fowler Delivers This Deep Fried Treat with Biting Social Commentary – IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

David Morrissey is a veteran UK actor that you’ve probably seen in countless projects. But it was his turn as the Governor on “The Walking Dead” that exposed him to a massive global audience. Now he’s back on TV, as the new star of Starz’s mystery thriller “The Missing,” back for a second season.

The Missing” was one of the most heart-wrenching TV shows of 2014, as it chronicled the journey of parents struggling to come to grips with the mysterious disappearance of their young boy. The show’s back with a whole new tale, again written by Harry and Jack Williams, and this time with Ben Chanan as the director of every episode.

TV Review: Starz’s ‘The Missing,’ Season 2, Starring David Morrissey

6 February 2017 10:02 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The second season of “The Missing” is a whodunit with a curious twist: The suspense begins once the mystery is over. In the opening moments of the first episode, a girl is abducted in the forest outside of a German village. Then, just as quickly (for the audience), she returns — stumbling through the same woods before collapsing in the town square. But she is older now, and ravaged; her eyes are haunted. It is 11 years later.

In some ways, this is consistent with the first season of the Starz/BBC anthology series, which also told the story of an abducted child and the subsequent investigation. But unlike the first installment of “The Missing,” the second season mostly dispenses with the circumstances of her abduction. Instead it flashes between the victim’s “safe” return, in 2014, and the arduous present, where the psychological scars of her kidnapping have not yet healed. Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham) has been found, but »

IndieWire’s Movie Podcast: Screen Talk (Episode 133) – 2017 Oscar Nominations Analysis

25 January 2017 10:51 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

After months of anticipation, the 2017 Oscar nominations are here, with plenty of surprises and snubs to discuss. While Michael Shannon made the cut and Amy Adams didn’t, there’s a lot more to explore at this juncture than just the basics: Can A24 mount a campaign for “Moonlight” that could put it ahead of “La La Land”? What’s got the edge in the documentary race? And who has the edge with the steak-eaters?

These are some of the talking points in the second of this week’s Screen Talk episode. But first, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson get together at the Kickstarter house for a live recording to discuss Sundance buzz and explain why we’re witnessing one of the healthiest marketplaces in years. Check out all our Sundance coverage here.

The Missing Season 2 Trailer: Alice Webster Returns

6 January 2017 2:13 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The first season of the Starz series The Missing did not provide the traditional happy ending we've come to expect with Hollywood productions.

That could be due to the fact this is a co-production with BBC One in the UK. Life isn't falsely painted with surgical smiles to make everyone happy.

So what will happen when Alice Webster returns to her family after being abducted in 2003?

We'll have to watch to find out, of course, but this trailer is anything but a puff piece.

The only original character returning is Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) and one of the first things he says is many years ago, he made a mistake.

How that mistake will impact this case we can only guess, but my guess is it will be in a big way.

What's even more shocking than Alice's return is that she make know the whereabouts of another missing girl. »
