Black History Month: Spotlight on Octavia Spencer

23 February 2017 11:40 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

by Steven Fenton

On February 26, 2012, Octavia Spencer won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her endearing performance as the feisty Minny Jackson in Tate Taylor’s The Help. With her win, Spencer joined an elite group, becoming just the sixth black actress to win an acting Oscar (and only the seventh overall, if you count Irene Cara’s Original Song win for Flashdance, since she also starred in the film). Prior to 2011, Spencer had worked steadily since the mid-90s, gaining a reputation as a warm and generous co-star and a beloved character actress. So her win in February 2012 felt like an authentic opportunity for the academy to recognize an industry favorite.

Spencer was an indomitable force in the 2011 awards season, snatching wins at the Critics Choice, SAG awards, Globe Globes, and BAFTA, and beating out a talented crop of women in sensational breakout performances, including: Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids »

The Girl on the Train; A Date for Mad Mary and more – review

5 February 2017 12:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Emily Blunt’s performance far exceeds the bounds of a glossy thriller, while Seána Kerslake is a perfect match for an ex-con drama

It’s rare to see an actress sweat as much blood for a film that gives her so little in return as Emily Blunt in The Girl on the Train (eOne, 15). Tate Taylor’s impersonally glossy adaptation of the Paula Hawkins bestseller boasts a protagonist who doesn’t appear to have been many more script notes than “posh drunk”, but what details and oddities Blunt forces into that bland type. It’s a performance jittering with dizzy physicality and skittish second-guessing, all appropriate to this dimly compelling yarn of an addled commuter who becomes at once the most certain and least trustworthy witness in a missing persons investigation.

It’s a shame the film around her hasn’t her interest in psychic pain and eccentricity. It glides »

Home Entertainment: The Girl On The Train DVD review

30 January 2017 5:21 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Girl On The Train is an ambitious, supremely dark intensely female-driven thriller adapted from the popular 2012 novel by British author Paula Hawkins. The film version sees its action relocated from Hertfordshire to New York state and focuses largely upon  Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) a 32-year-old alcoholic who is also recovering from the severe break-down of her marriage to Tom (Justin Theroux). She commutes into New York City every day, sitting in the same seat, sipping from the same drink, staring at the rows of suburban houses at the side of the rail track. She fantasies about some of the inhabitants of said houses, including amorous couple Scott and Megan Hipwell (Luke Evans and Haley Bennett), who have tendencies to caress on their balcony, cavort in their garden and snuggle under a blanket around an open fire. Things take a change for the worse one day when Rachel suddenly witnesses »
