Film Review: Zoe Saldana in ‘Nina’

18 April 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nina Simone lived many lives in her 70 years on the planet, and for a filmmaker looking to dramatize the iconic singer-pianist’s story on screen, the potential entry points are almost endless. Considering the range of possibilities, and the continuing relevance of Simone’s music in an era of renewed racial tensions, “Nina’s” decision to frame her story through a “Sunset Blvd.”-style narrative is truly a head-scratcher. Focusing on Simone’s late-life relationship with a younger nurse-turned-manager provides a perilously shaky foundation from which to consider her legacy, and that’s just the first of many major miscalculations made by writer-director Cynthia Mort’s long-gestating biopic, which meanders into theaters and VOD this month after years of pitched controversy. Interest in Simone will be evergreen as long as recorded music exists, but arriving just a year after Liz Garbus’ Oscar-nominated doc “What Happened, Miss Simone?,” superior competition and »

E!’s New Scripted Series Sure Sounds Like a Thinly Veiled Tom Cruise Exposé

29 January 2016 12:56 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Remember all those stories about Tom Cruise's "wife auditions"? E! does! The network announced today its second scripted series (after The Royals) would be The Arrangement, a drama about a young actress who finds herself falling for her A-list co-star — only to be presented with a contract arranging the ins and outs of their potential relationship. And if that wasn't salty enough, our A-lister is under the sway of a mysterious self-help figure, played by Michael Vartan, who runs something called the Institute of the Higher Mind. Yes, that's right: The hot dude from Alias is playing David Miscavige. The series, which has been picked up for a first season of ten hour-long episodes, will star Christine Evangelista and Josh Henderson — as "Megan Morrison" and "Kyle West," sadly, and not "Hatie Colmes" and "Crom Tooze." »
