1 June 2017 6:17 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

May kicked off the summer movie season, but June brings some studio tentpoles actually worth seeing (yes, we didn’t like that one everyone else did last month). Along with popcorn entertainment, there’s some of the finest independent films of the year, ranging from a long-delayed final feature from a late master to Sundance favorites and more. We should also note that, despite getting a release last year, IFC seems to be putting the Palme d’Or-winning I, Daniel Blake back in theaters this week, and we recommend seeking it out if you missed it.

Matinees to See: Past Life (6/2), Band Aid (6/2), My Cousin Rachel (6/9), Megan Leavey (6/9), Score: A Film Music Documentary (6/16), Maudie (6/16), Harmonium (6/16), The Journey (6/16), All Eyez on Me (6/16), Lost in Paris (6/16), Pop Aye (6/28), The House (6/30), and The Little Hours (6/30).

15. It’s Only the End of the World (Xavier Dolan; June 30)

Synopsis: It would have been a lovely family dinner. »

Author: Scott Davis

While acclaimed filmmaker Xavier Dolan isn’t heading to next week’s Cannes Film Festival with his new film, the first slew of images for his latest effort, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, have arrived. Anticipation is already at fever pitch, though it may be a little while yet until we get to see the film.

Dolan’s previous films include I Killed My Mother, Mommy and, most recently last year, It’s Only The End of the World, which starred Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux, Nathalie Baye and Gaspard Ulliel. His new film features as impressive a cast.

In Defense of Tribeca: Closing Notes from the 2017 Film Festival

4 May 2017 7:50 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

For AhkeemEstablished in 2002, the Tribeca Film Festival has had a bit of trouble defining itself during the course of its 15-year run. It lacks the grit and quirk of SXSW or the finesse of Sundance, but like the latter, it serves a springboard with its own lab for first time directors. Tribeca's ambitious programming has evolved to encompass much more than movies. A Virtual Reality sidebar is innovative and conveniently forward-looking, the television slate, chock full of hotly anticipated premieres, is opportunely adaptive, and the Talks section is fascinating in its pairings, both expected (Noah Baumbach and Dustin Hoffman, whose work together will be showcased at Cannes) and funkily improbable (Barbra Streisand and Robert Rodriguez). There's even a curation of interactive media in the Games section.While the festival is often unfairly maligned, there are many decent offerings, including spillover from the international film festival circuit and a premieres of some more well-known titles, »

It’s Only the End of the World review – spittle-flecked drama

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

An adaptation of a play about a gay man’s return to the bosom of his family is not easy to watch – or listen to

The latest picture from the prolific Canadian wunderkind Xavier Dolan is certainly not the easiest watch. An adaptation of a play by Jean-Luc Lagarce that tells of the return of a sensitive, successful gay son to his tempestuous family home, this is stridently confrontational in its approach. Dolan favours so many extreme, spittle-flecked closeups of shouting family members that it leaves you gasping for breath and longing for a wide shot.

Gaspard Ulliel plays prodigal son Louis, Nathalie Baye is screechy and lurid as his mother and Marion Cotillard delivers sensitive work as the browbeaten sister-in-law he has never met. But it’s Vincent Cassel’s character who is the most problematic – older brother Antoine is furious but it’s a hollow, noisy anger that »

Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert won best actress award at the 42nd edition of the French Oscars, the Césars in Paris last night (February 24), 21 years after she won the award previously for Claude Chabrol’s La Cérémonie. Paul Verhoeven’s film was named best picture. Elle was nominated in 11 categories.

Verhoeven paid tribute to Huppert, saying she had brought an “extra dimension to the role” which he had not expected when they started work. Huppert, looking radiant in an emerald green evening gown, suggested that she had got noticed in the film “because I am practically in every frame”.

The youthful Quebec film-maker Xavier Dolan was a surprise recipient of the best director and editing awards for It’s Only The End Of The World which »

‘Elle’ Star Isabelle Huppert Wins Best Actress, Xavier Dolan Wins Best Director at France’s Cesar Awards

24 February 2017 3:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris — Oscar nominee Isabelle Huppert won best actress at the 42nd Cesar Awards, the country’s top film prize.

Out of 16th Cesar nominations, Huppert had only won once for her performance in Claude Chabrol’s “La Ceremonie.”

Huppert has been on a laureled path since “Elle” competed at Cannes: she notably won the Golden Globe award. Set in France and produced by Said Ben Said and Michel Merkt, “Elle” has been described as a powerful rape-revenge thriller laced with dark humor. The movie was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics at Cannes.

The biggest surprise of the night was Xavier Dolan winning best director and editing with “It’s Only The End of the World” which also earned Gaspard Ulliel the best actor prize. Dolan is currently shooting “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan” in Prague.

Dolan won over Paul Verhoeven (“Elle”), Houda Benyamina (“Divines”), François Ozon (“Frantz »

23 February 2017 4:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s Only the End of the World, 2016.

Directed by Xavier Dolan.

Starring Gaspard Ulliel, Nathalie Baye, Vincent Cassel, Marion Cotillard and Lea Seydoux.

Synopsis:

After 12 years away from his family, a terminally ill writer returns home to break the news.  But, as he struggles to re-connect with them, old wounds and frustrations rise to the surface, making it even harder for him to tell them the real reason for his visit.

Meet the family.  Fractured, dysfunctional and belonging to writer Louis (Gaspard Ulliel) who hasn’t seen them for 12 years.  During that time, older brother Antoine (Vincent Cassel) has married Catherine (Marion Cotillard) and had two  children.  Sister Suzanne (Lea Seydoux) is increasingly stoned and hippy-like, while mother (Nathalie Baye) has become increasingly garish in her choice of clothes and make-up.  Louis might have a tenuous attachment to all of them – he keeps suggesting a visit to the previous »

It’s Only the End of the World Review

21 February 2017 6:51 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

The prolific, impressively young Xavier Dolan’s preceding endeavour was his finest yet, the indelible, irresistible drama Mommy, a film that contained a lot of shrieking, and yet amidst the emotional, piercing shouting matches, you always felt you could hear every single word. His latest, the curiously self-pitying It’s Only the End of the World, also features screaming – and lots of it – and yet in this instance you feel as though you aren’t actually catching a word, it’s just one big muffled mess.

In what seems to be a self-referential piece, Dolan casts Gaspard Ulliel as Louis, a terminally ill playwright returning back home for the first time in over a decade, with the intention of telling his family that he’s dying. Upon his arrival he’s met with the principle shrieker, his eccentric mother (Nathalie Baye), and his cynical sister Suzanne (Léa Seydoux »

Berlinale: Ad Vitam to Produce Bruni Tedeschi Pic, Acquires Lelio’s ‘Fantastic Woman’ (Exclusive)

11 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Berlin– Ad Vitam, one of France’s leading independent distribution companies, is set to produce Valeria Bruni Tedeschi’s “Les estivants,” the actress-turned-director’s follow-up to “A Castle in Italy” (pictured above) which competed at Cannes

Launched in 1998 by Gregory Gajos, Arthur Hallereau and Alexandra Henochsberg, Ad Vitam has been raising its profile and scope lately with the launch of sales outfit Alma Cinema in partnership with Charles Gillibert’s production company CG Cinema (“Mustang,” “Personal Shopper”).

Although Ad Vitam is usually mainly involved in distribution and co-production, it boarded Tedeschi’s project as a full-on producer because of Henochsberg’s close relationship with Tedeschi. A popular actress in Europe, Tedeschi recently starred in Paolo Virzi’s “Like Crazy,” which played at Directors’ Fortnight in cannes, and Bruno Dumont’s “Slack Bay,” a competition entry at Cannes in 2016.

Budgeted at 6 million euros ($6.8 million), “Les estivants” was written by Bruni Tedeschi »
