Open The Pages Of 'Far From The Madding Crowd' Starring Carey Mulligan With New Featurette, Images, Poster & More

30 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This summer you'll have all kinds of explosions to choose from, but very few of the emotional kind. That's where "Far From The Madding Crowd" steps in. A starry cast and an acclaimed arthouse director team up to take on a literary classic, and the results look to be expectedly sumptuous. And today some new looks at the movie have arrived. The most substantial is a featurette titled "Bathsheeba," which says it all. It's a thorough look at the character, played by Carey Mulligan, who finds herself the object of affection of three very different men, and, of course, lots of drama ensues. After that you can preview the score by Craig Armstrong, which arrives in stores on April 28th, check out a handful of new pics from the Thomas Vinterberg-directed movie, and look at an autumnal poster.  Also starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, Michael Sheen, Juno Temple, and more, »

Footage From "Far From The Madding Crowd"

27 March 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ director Thomas Vinterberg's upcoming film adaptation of author Thomas Hardy's "Far from the Madding Crowd", starring Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Michael Sheen, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple:

"...'Gabriel Oak' is a young shepherd. With the savings of a frugal life, and a loan, he has leased and stocked a sheep farm. He falls in love with a newcomer six years his junior, 'Bathsheba Everdene', a proud beauty who arrives to live with her aunt, 'Mrs Hurst'. 

"She comes to like him well enough, and even saves his life once, but when he makes her an unadorned offer of marriage, she refuses; she values her independence too much and him too little. Gabriel's blunt protestations only serve to drive her to haughtiness. After a few days, she moves to 'Weatherbury', a village some miles off.

"When next they meet, their circumstances change drastically..."

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

The Drop Blu-ray Review

23 March 2015 10:03 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Michaël R. Roskam

Starring: Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, James Gandolfini, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz

Certificate: 15

Run Time: 106 minues

Michael R. Roskam, best known for Bullhead, directs Dennis Lehane’s The Drop and presents us with a finely paced crime-drama that’s wrapped up with tempestuous grittiness. Lehane wrote the screenplay for his own short story ‘Animal Rescue’ and is the man behind Gone Baby Gone and Shutter Island, so you know you’ll get deep inside the characters.

Intensely brooding, Hardy plays New York bartender Bob, a simple and lonely guy who’s family runs the establishment that occasionally doubles up for a ‘drop’ bar, which means that sometimes it’s part of a circuit that exchanges money and nobody asks questions.

One day, when walking home from his job, he hears the whimpers of a dog and discovers a Pit-bull puppy in some bins, covered in blood. Picking the dog up, »

Watch: Michelle Williams Is Rattled By War In 2 Clips From 'Suite Francaise'

20 March 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"The power of love is the only indestructible thing in the world. Hate is not going to get you anywhere, violence is not going to get you anywhere, cynicism is not going to get you anywhere, love will get you there. Love makes life worth living and that is it. Period," Matthias Schoenaerts told Rte Ten. This is a sentiment that powers the upcoming "Suite Francaise," and today a couple of clips from the wartime drama have landed.  Co-starring Michelle WilliamsKristin Scott Thomas, Margot RobbieRuth Wilson ("The Affair"), and Sam Riley, and based on the novel by Irene Nemirovsky, the story is set during World War II, in the early years of Germany’s occupation of France, and follows a French villager who falls for a Nazi soldier stationed to look over her township. But horrors of war aren't hidden, and these clips (one via The Telegraph) show »

female gazing at: Matthias Schoenaerts

18 March 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

It’s been a while since we did some female gazing, and I am inspired to get back into it by Belgian cutie Matthias Schoenaerts and his turn as a civilized Nazi in Suite Française (currently in U.K cinemas and coming to North America sometime this year, hopefully):

Schoenaerts has typically been playing tough guys — in flicks like Rust and Bone, Blood Ties, and The Drop — and he’s always really good. But tough guys aren’t really my thing, and it was only in A Little Chaos, in which he portrays a 17th-century garden designer at Versailles, when I took particular notice of him:

(I saw A Little Chaos at London Film Festival last autumn; it opens in the U.K. next month. No word yet on a U.S. release.)

Very nice:

Film Review: 'Suite Française'

16 March 2015 3:24 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Saul Dibb's film adaptation of Suite Française (2014) dramatically compresses the many strands of Irène Némirovsky's incomplete World War II novel, discovered by her daughter after her death and published to great acclaim in 2004. Némirovsky intended to write five parts dealing with the tumult of war but only completed two novellas – she died in Auchwitz in 1942. In the second, Dolce, she created a vivid portrait of a provincial French town, Bussy, through the various reactions of its citizens to the German occupation. In their adaptation, Dibb and co-screenwriter Matt Charman concentrate on Dolce and the love affair between Lucille Angellier (Michelle Williams) and Bruno von Falk (Matthias Schoenaerts).

Movie Review – Suite Française (2015)

15 March 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suite Française, 2015.

Directed by Saul Dibb.

Starring Kristin Scott Thomas, Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Margot Robbie, Sam Riley and Ruth Wilson.

Synopsis:

During the early years of German occupation of France in World War II, romance blooms between Lucile Angellier, a French villager and Bruno von Falk, a German soldier.

We’ve seen romantic movies, we’ve seen war movies, and we’ve seen romantic movies set during a war so from the off Suite Française faces the unenviable task of setting itself aside from the rest. Thankfully director Saul Dibb’s keeps his film aimed squarely at the relationships between and evenly balances both love and war to ensure the film never runs flats or becomes to cliché ridden – something it could very easily have been.

France has become occupied by the Nazis and when a troop of German soldiers move in to the small town of Bussy a »

Suite Francaise review: Michelle Williams stars in a rote war romance

13 March 2015 9:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Saul Dibb; Screenwriter: Matt Charman, Saul Dibb; Starring: Michelle Williams, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ruth Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Riley; Running time: 107 mins; Certificate: 15

Based on an unfinished novel by Irène Némirovsky, who wrote it shortly prior to her death in Auschwitz, Suite Française transforms an extraordinary story into a profoundly ordinary period drama. Tasking its potent performers with a stiff script and by-rote characterisations, the film feels endlessly in search of a dramatic thread worth paying off.

Lucile (Michelle Williams) is a lonely young woman living with her repressive and chilly mother-in-law (Kristin Scott Thomas) in the French village of Bussy during World War II. We learn through heavy-handed voiceover that her husband is away fighting, leaving her scarcely more emotionally neglected than she was in his company. When the village is occupied by German forces, Lucile is drawn to a sensitive Nazi soldier (Matthias Schoenaerts) who comes to stay in her too-empty home. »

Suite Française movie review: enemy mine to love

13 March 2015 8:37 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An immediate and intimate tale of forbidden romance and other complex emotions and contradictory obligations. This ain’t history but a very human now. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for stories about women; I’m a sucker for movies about WWII

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

The story of how Irène Némirovsky’s novel Suite Française became known to the world is amazing. She wrote it as contemporary fiction inspired by the events she was living through — the defeat of France by the Nazis in 1940, and the subsequent German occupation — but then it was lost, packed away unread, until the 1990s, and finally published only in 2004. Némirovsky died before the end of the war, in Auschwitz in 1942, so she never knew how it would all end, and indeed her writing »

In advance of the release later this year of the new version of the Thomas Hardy classic starring Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts, the 1967 film from John Schlesinger is being revived in a digital restoration overseen by its cinematographer, Nic Roeg. What is striking, almost 50 years on from when it was made, is its extraordinary craftsmanship and its emotional intensity. »

Film Review: ‘Suite francaise’

10 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The title is the most authentically French thing about “Suite francaise,” a fusty but enjoyably old-fashioned WWII soap that, notwithstanding its Gallic locale, is otherwise characterized by a distinctly British brand of plumminess. Based on the bestselling unfinished novel by Irene Nemirovsky, this lightly perfumed tale of the tentative romance between a married Frenchwoman and an urbane Nazi soldier during the 1940 German occupation covers no new ground historically or stylistically, and is hampered by gauche narration that undermines the expressive delicacy of Michelle Williams’s headlining performance. Still, attractive mounting and casting — with the inspired choice of Matthias Schoenaerts as Williams’s co-lead paying off handsomely — could see this Weinstein Co. property make moderately “Suite” music in limited release.

In Blighty, where Entertainment One releases the pic on March 13, “Suite francaise” is likely to entice the older audience that failed to turn out for the comparable but superior wartime weepie »

‘Suite Francaise’: Film Review

10 March 2015 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Michelle Williams stars as a bourgeois Frenchwoman who falls in love with a Nazi officer (Matthias Schoenaerts) during the Occupation in the long-awaited but soapy and numbingly flat Suite Francaise. Based on the second part of Holocaust victim Irene Nemirovsky's unfinished novel, which became an acclaimed worldwide bestseller in 2004, this filleting by writer-director Saul Dibb (The Duchess, TV series The Line of Beauty), co-written by Matt Charman and completed in 2014, has sturdy production values, a tony cast and middlebrow tastefulness up the wazoo, but barely any soul, bite or genuine passion.

Eddie Redmayne’s ‘Danish Girl’ And Saoirse Ronan’s ‘Brooklyn’ Get Release Dates

Focus Features has set a November 27 platform release date for The Danish Girl the Tom Hooper movie that stars Oscar Best Actor winner Eddie Redmayne along with Matthias Schoenaerts, Alicia Vikander and Amber Heard.

Round Up: 'Brooklyn' and 'Danish Girl' set dates and Spielberg's latest gets a title

4 March 2015 1:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Awards season has transformed into pretty much a 12 month a year event (outside of maybe a few weeks in June) which means there is news to report about some of the more anticipated prestige players of 2015. Fox Searchlight announced today that John Crowley's acclaimed romantic drama "Brooklyn" will hit theaters in platform release on Nov. 6.  The tearjerker was one of the big surprises at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival where it screened out of competition (read my review here).  Stars Saoirse Ronan, Michael Zegen, Domhnall Gleeson and Julie Walters are all potential acting category contenders and Nick Hornby delivers another wonderful screenplay adaptation after last year's "Wild."  Screenings at Telluride or Toronto seem likely, but a slot at the New York Film Festival just makes too much sense, doesn't it? Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl" also found a release date today as Focus Features announced it will open in New »

4 March 2015 1:24 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The Danish Girl is a love story inspired by the lives of artists Einar and Gerda Wegener. Redmayne portrays the former (pictured), who become one of the world’s first transgender women, Lili Elbe.

Rounding out the cast are Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Whishaw and Amber Heard.

Lucinda Coxon adapted the screenplay from the novel of the same name by David Ebershoff.
