Living With Art: My Childhood Friendship With Saul Steinberg

17 December 2014 10:58 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

It’s not easy nabbing the Nivola Brothers. Alessandro, who is starring in The Elephant Man on Broadway with Bradley Cooper and Patricia Clarkson, is also busy filming the second season of the HBO comedy series Doll & Em with his wife, the actress Emily Mortimer. He also has two movies opening later this month: Selma and A Most Violent Year. His artist brother, Adrian, is preparing for a group show titled “Winter Salon” at the Drawing Room, open December 13 through February 28, 2015. But they generously made time to meet at Alessandro’s home in Brooklyn, where they described growing up in the fascinating world of their grandparents — artists Costantino and Ruth Nivola — and getting to know their grandparents’ legendary friends, which included artist Saul Steinberg and architect Le Corbusier. We sat down in Alessandro’s cozy living room, where Adrian, on the left, and Alessandro, on the right, »

The Newsroom: Season Three Ratings

16 December 2014 4:03 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though HBO would likely like a fourth season of The Newsroom, the series is ending with a shortened third season (interviews indicate that Aaron Sorkin made the decision to make this the final season). Will it go out with great ratings or will it fizzle? We shall see.

The Newsroom follows the behind-the-scenes world at the fictional Atlantis Cable News (Acn) channel. The cast includes Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn, and Sam Waterston.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's chances of staying on the air. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

Final season averages: 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.34 million total viewers.

The Newsroom Season 3 Episode 4: ‘Contempt’ Review

15 December 2014 3:58 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Anthony Hemingway

Writers: Aaron SorkinDeborah SchoenemanJohn Musero

Synopsis: As Will refuses to reveal the source of the stolen government documents, despite the threat of legal action, Sloan and Mac search for a buyer for Acn.

Although The Newsroom has swerved more specific news stories and gradually veered over into the lives of the resourceful ensemble cast, it has continued to resonate with me as a fine piece of television that continues to entertain and inform, in various different ways. ‘Contempt’ is a curious five-day episode which carries on from where we left off with Will (Jeff Daniels) being handed a subpoena for withholding the government source of the classified information Acn have been given. It runs us around a course of Will not giving that information, which he says he has, up to the Supreme Court. Of course, whatever happens with the court side of affairs, our »

Created by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), this TV series takes a behind-the-scenes look at the people who put together a nightly cable-news show on the fictional Atlantis Cable News (Acn) channel.

The Newsroom: good riddance to Aaron Sorkin's bully pulpit

15 December 2014 5:55 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

As the show drew to an infuriating end, Sorkin seized his final chance to tell journalists how to do their jobs – while his female characters remained pushed around by the men

I have a serious question: why doesn’t Aaron Sorkin become a journalist? He sure seems to have a lot of opinions about how journalists do their jobs. This weekend, he used his now (thankfully) defunct show The Newsroom and the pages of the New York Times to yell at those who have used the Sony Pictures hack to publish news stories about the goings-on at the movie studio.

At one point in the series finale, which aired on HBO on Sunday, MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) says that journalism isn’t a career – it’s a calling. Doesn’t it seem like Sorkin has heard that calling? Having made a lot of money off his Hollywood screenplays, he’s »

‘The Newsroom’ Finale Might Look Better In Hindsight (Spoilers)

14 December 2014 7:15 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

So Aaron Sorkin? As Claude Rains said at the end of “Casablanca,” “As I suspected, you’re a rank sentimentalist.” Then again, anyone who has stuck with “The Newsroom” through its three interesting, exhausting, at times aggravating seasons — or for that matter, “The West Wing” in its heyday — won’t find that to be a major surprise, or always a bad thing.

Yes, the writer rails against the failings of the modern media, but that’s because of his faith in the nobler aspects of the calling. Yet in romanticizing the news, his fictionalized work didn’t just preach, capitalizing on the benefit of hindsight to illustrate where journalists have fallen short, but too often rang hollow.

Those excesses, for good and ill, were evident throughout this finishing six-episode arc and Sunday’s series finale (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), which followed the sudden death of news »

The Newsroom Series Finale: How Did It All End?

14 December 2014 7:00 PM, PST | TVGuide.com - Features | See recent TVGuide - Features news »

[Warning: The following story contains spoilers from the series finale of HBO's The Newsroom. Read at your own risk.]

Even though The Newsroom's series finale featured a funeral, it was unlike the final send-offs of so many other death-obsessed cable dramas. Instead, the message of the final hour of Aaron Sorkin's latest (and last?) TV series was simple: Life goes on.

Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels), MacKenzie McHale (Emily Mortimer) and their team of idealistic staffers gathered to say goodbye to their former boss Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston), who died of a heart attack in the penultimate episode while fighting with new corporate owner Lucas Pruit (Bj Novak).

Sundance ’15: Baumbach, Fleck/Boden, Pulcini/Berman, Ponsoldt & Another Swanberg Among Premieres

8 December 2014 1:25 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Last year’s slate of seventeen Narrative Premieres (excluding secret screenings of Boyhood and Nymphomaniac: Vol. I) refreshingly included works from first time filmmakers. I hadn’t seen it coming but Little Accidents and The One I Love were included among the likes of Calvary, Frank and Love is Strange. 2015 will be a true we Swanberg family affair with Joe Swanberg joining wife Kris (Unexpected) with a feature as well in Digging for Fire. James Ponsoldt is officially four for four with Sundance — his latest End of the Tour should be a slam dunk for the Eccles. Sticking to the numbers game… we’ll have a lovely bedfellow pairings of Kyle Patrick Alvarez’s already announced The Stanford Prison Experiment which is going to be mentioned in many loglines alongside Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter - about the Milgram experiment. Among the filmmaking duos we were expecting, we find Mississippi Grind »

Festival director John Cooper noted that while this year’s 16 Premieres selections will be among the buzziest, most commercial titles in Park City, “they’re not without an independent feel to them, and that’s what I’m always looking for. There is a very independent spirit behind these films.”

By way of example, Cooper cited “Last Days in the Desert,” a description-resistant foray into father-son territory from Garcia, a director known for his stories about women (“Nine Lives,” “Mother and Child”); John Crowley’s “Brooklyn, »

Sundance: Premieres, Doc Premieres

8 December 2014 1:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Festival top brass have revealed a high-profile roster of out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres entries featuring many returning heroes, as well as a new Special Events section and panel participants including George Lucas.

Justin Kelly’s I Am Michael is likely to become a major talking point and stars James Franco and Zachary Quinto in the true tale of activist and Young Gay America co-founder Michael Glatze, who renounced his homosexuality and became a Christian pastor. The Exchange handles international rights.

James Ponsoldt’s David Foster Wallace film End Of The Tour (pictured, photo by Jakob Ihre) starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel makes the cut — Fortitude International is the international sales agent — as does the latest from the newly prolific Noah Baumbach, whose Mistress America stars his Frances Ha and Greenberg muse Greta Gerwig and arrives three months after the Toronto premiere of While We’re Young.

The Newsroom usually milks its drama from the real-life news stories the show's fictional characters are covering. But on Sunday's penultimate episode, the drama hit much closer to home.

The episode — which jumps ahead 52 days since Will (Jeff Daniels) and Mackenzie (Emily Mortimer) tied the knot and Will went to jail for failing to reveal the name of his source — shows just how much the vibe at Acn has changed since Lucas Pruitt (guest star B.J. Novak) took ownership....

Ewan McGregor, Olivia Wilde to appear in Doll & Em series two

3 December 2014 8:34 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Ewan McGregor and Olivia Wilde are amongst the names announced for series two of Doll & Em.

They will be joined by Evan Rachel Wood and Mikhail Baryshnikov in the series, which stars Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells.

Evan Rachel Wood described Mortimer and Wells as "some of the loveliest and most hilarious people I have ever worked with. Being on the show has been an absolute joy."

Wood and Wilde will be seen playing stage versions of Doll and Em, as the pair write an off-Broadway play about themselves in the new series.

However, the production and the girls' friendship are both jeopardised when Em is cast opposite McGregor in a big-budget Hollywood action movie.

The first series of Doll & Em saw cameos from the likes of Bradley Cooper, Susan Sarandon and Andy Garcia, as Doll got used to being best friend Em's assistant in Hollywood.
